Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are back! Yay! Last year I was all charged up about Murder is Bad Manners, the first book in the series. Now we’ve moved from a boarding school murder to an English country house party murder. Woo hoo!
Hazel is spending the holidays with Daisy and her family when Mr. Curtis, a creepy friend of Daisy’s mother appears. He manages to make more than a few enemies very quickly, falls ill after tea, and then dies from what might be dysentery. Or is it arsenic poisoning?
Daisy and Hazel charge right into investigation, bringing along two school friends to help observe the suspects. Will someone close to Daisy be the culprit?
It’s all good fun for mystery lovers. It’s a quick read and not too easy to figure out, making it better than the average middle grade mystery. If you missed Murder is Bad Manners, go back and read it first. You don’t have to read them in order, but you’ll be glad you did. More mystery? More fun!
