Mistletoe and Murder by Robin Stevens - five stars
Daisy and Hazel are spending the Christmas hols at Cambridge, where Bertie is studying and Alexander and George are visiting George’s brother. Of course there’s a murder, or rather two. But with the Detective Society and the Junior Pinkerton’s on the scene, the murderer can’t hope to get away with it. Told in Hazel’s wonderful voice as she journals every step of the way as the two rival agencies compete to find the killer first, this Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are full of fun and surprises. I may have been able to predict parts of the story but Daisy and Hazel never disappoint.This is the fifth novel in the series. There’s one more and a book of short stories to read. I’m looking forward to the next one.
