I'm going to be terribly unprofessional here for a moment so please do humour me.

THIS IS BRILLIANT.

*Puts Critic hat back on*

THIS IS BRILLIANT

Oh, this will never do. Okay, I'll have to do my best to restore some sort of professional overtones to this review.

Laura Marlin is brilliant.

Wait, it's not improving is it.

She has a three legged Siberian huskey as a sidekick. Which is brilliant.

Oh, I give in.

THIS BOOK IS BRILLIANT. It's the Famous Five meets Nancy Drew. It has the wonderful Laura Marlin - bright, brilliant heroine that she is - and she's a delight to read. It has a shady uncle. An even shadier housekeeper. And it feels like sunshine and coconut fudge and fry-ups at the seaside cafe.

Just go get it. Read it. Because it's brilliant.

Aaah, I'll be very interested to hear your thoughts on Laura. I thought she was fabulous.


Candycloud I couldn't agree more. It was fabulous.
