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.
