My Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
I genuinely love this style of mystery. The old feel, the Scottish accents and the staff that might or might not know something. They are just not willing to share if they have a clue.
Christie McKinnon is a very bright young lady and I love that she was taking notes and thinking on her feet. It is not every day that a precocious girl of eleven can outmaneuver the criminal minds. The entire cast was brilliant and fun.
The writing is really nicely done and brings you right into the midst of the action finding clues, developing suspicions, and tracking down missing people.
The clues were there, the secret rooms and the missing people and animals were also in abundance.
Colin Garrow really has a knack for the who done it, and all the time using an amateur sleuth that is brighter than the sun. I love that Christie has a secret and she doesn’t want anyone to know it. That just adds to the fun of this lovely mystery.
If you enjoy a lovely mystery, with hidden secrets, rooms, passages and other delicious secrets, then this book is for you. The sleuth in this story is precious, smart and fast on her feet. With no bad language, or over the top, violence it is written in the Sherlock Holmes style with just good deducing.
