Dead man’s cove

Dead man's cove - a laura marlin mysteryDead man’s cove – the first Laura Marlin mystery by Lauren St John – is a fun read that touches on real and serious issues that mainstream media don’t often discuss.

St Ives is the perfect backdrop for a mystery and Lauren St John does a great job of bringing the scenery to life.  Laura is an intelligent and willful main character and a delight to follow and meets some very interesting characters along the way.

This book will appeal to middle grade readers but can be enjoyed by older readers as well.  I was transported back to when I used to read Enid Blyton for hours as a child, however Lauren St John adds a touch of maturity and modernity to her charming work.
