My five star review of A Spoonful of Murder by Robin Stevens
In the latest entry in the Murder Most Unladylike series, Daisy has accompanied Hazel to her home in Hong Kong. Hazel’s grandfather has died and she was called home for the mourning period. But there were several surprises for her, the biggest was that she had a brother, Teddy, and another was that her maid had been reassigned to the baby boy. When Hazel and Daisy accompany Teddy and the maid to the doctor’s office above a bank, they’re nearby when the maid is killed and Teddy kidnapped. The Detective Society is on the case faster than you can say cheongsam. For once Daisy lets Hazel take the lead, since she knows how things are done in Hong Kong. This was one of the best stories in the series. Hazel gave us a good taste of the place she lived before she left for school in England.
