Mistletoe and Murder is the latest in Robin Stevens’ excellent A Murder Most Unladylike series of books. The Detective Society made up of Hazel Wong and Daisy Wells are back. They are spending their Christmas holidays in Camberidge with Daisy’s older brother Bertie. When the two of them learn about a series of ‘accidents’ plaguing one of Bertie’s friends AND discover that this friend is also heir to a massive fortune he is set to inherit on Christmas day…Daisy and Hazel start to wonder if there is something more nefarious going on.
Sirens was a book recommended to me by a friend. He praised the plot and the characters, telling me only enough to get me interested. So when he offered me his copy I took it and started to read. Sirens is the story of Detective Aidan Waits who after he is caught stealing drugs from evidence is blackmailed into an undercover operation. He spends his nights following The Franchise, a clever gang run by a very interesting man, but when he is asked to help David Rossiter, a very powerful MP, keep tabs on his teenage daughter who is now part of The Franchise everything changes and nothing for the better.
This review is going to be as spoiler free as possible but I will be talking about the plot and the characters – enjoy!
