Children's Book Review : Murder Most Unladylike By Robin Stevens

The Novel Cafe welcomes a new member to the team, guest reviewer 8.5 year old Erin. Erin volunteered to read and review children's books for The Novel Cafe so when Random House sent Murder Most Unladylike she was delighted to read it and write down her views - so thanks to Random House and a very special thanks to Erin for the great review...I personally hope there are many more to come :-)

Book Blurb....
When Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong set up their very own deadly secret detective agency at Deepdean School for Girls, they struggle to find any truly exciting mysteries to investigate. (Unless you count the case of Lavinia's missing tie. Which they don't, really.) But then Hazel discovers the Science Mistress, Miss Bell, lying dead in the Gym. She thinks it must all have been a terrible accident - but when she and Daisy return five minutes later, the body has disappeared. Now the girls know a murder must have taken place . . . and there's more than one person at Deepdean with a motive.
Now Hazel and Daisy not only have a murder to solve: they have to prove a murder happened in the first place. Determined to get to the bottom of the crime before the killer strikes again (and before the police can get there first, naturally), Hazel and Daisy must hunt for evidence, spy on their suspects and use all the cunning, scheming and intuition they can muster. But will they succeed? And can their friendship stand the test?

Erin's Review....
This book had a strong first chapter which kept me glued to the book, wanting to read on...

Good description of the main characters to build a picture of them in your mind, with a great spread of words, not at all repetitive.

I like the buildup of tension and lots of strong describing words which help get the feeling of the story.

I loved the plan of the school, teacher list and character list in the front of the book.

The rumours in the book of “who did it” make you really intrigued as to who it was that was involved.

The 2 main characters, Daisy and Hazel have very different personalities yet are the best of friends. They have a headstart on the Police in trying to solve the murder mystery.

I tried to guess who the murderer was... but didn't get it right!, until the book revealed a twist in the tale.

It’s the best book I have read in a long time and I can't wait for another adventure. I would definitely recommend you to read this book!
