Tuesday Book Review


Five-star review of Once Upon a Crime by Robin Stevens

 This collection of short stories tells the tales of a few of the murders and mysteries solved by Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong intermixed chronologically with novels in the Murder Most Unladylike series. The two founders of the Detective Society now in their teens in 1930’s England. There are also one story featuring their friends George and Alexander, the Junior Pinkertons, and another long one starring Hazel’s 10-year-old sister May and taking place at the start of WWII. May has helped Daisy and Hazel before but this one was solved through her own reasoning and actions. I’m now looking forward to reading the first full-length novel about May and her exploits. Each of the stories in this collection is good, written from the POV of one of the protagonists with the proper word choices for someone their age. They were each unpredictable and satisfying.
