First Class Murder by Robin Stevens
🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌 We are absolutely bananas about this book!
Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are taking a holiday on the world-famous Orient Express – and it’s clear that each of their fellow first-class passengers has something to hide. Even more intriguing: there is rumour of a spy in their midst.
Then, during dinner, there is a scream from inside one of the cabins. When the door is broken down, a passenger is found murdered, her stunning ruby necklace gone. But the killer has vanished – as if into thin air.
Daisy and Hazel are faced with their first ever locked-room mystery – and with competition from several other sleuths, who are just as determined to crack the case.
1 Murder, 13 suspects, a spy, a snobby countess, a mischievous writer, one amateur sleuth and The Wells & Wong Detective Society... What could go wrong?
With excitement, adventure and detecting, this is my cup of tea! After reading the first chapter, I couldn't stop myself! And it's so good, that I've re-read it twice! Yes, it is a Murder- but it focuses more on the mischief, friendship and deducing that the Detective Society get up to, not the gory of the murder. Robin has been (very cleverly) sensitive with any gory, or scary moments in the book- and it is the perfect balance!
To sum it up in five words I would say, Mystery, Trains, Friendship, The Power of Love and young super sleuths...
