Loved this! I want to buy it for my niece. Doesn't say the genre or age group but it felt like a cozy mystery or similar to Nancy Drew. Adorable!

Full review coming soon!

Being a child is hard, but growing up with a little sister can be downright annoyingly frustrating. J.P. Wright has a humorous, whodunit story...chalked full of sibling rivalry, child detectives, and mystery. The drama that unfolds within these pages will have readers laughing and shaking their heads in a knowing fashion.

Violet Tickham comes across a violent crime at the start of the book; someone has destroyed her mother's decadent and infamous Chocolate Cake! With only Marcus, their dog at the

Within a page of starting Home Economics for Girls I had slowed down to approximately the reading speed I use for people like Kant and A.J. Ayer. Not that it's hard to follow, at all - but there is a level of enjoyment above which one just has to prolong the experience, and I didn't want to miss a syllable of this wonderful book.

Full of wonderful characters, brilliantly drawn scenes, and witty dialogue - this book will keep you entertained all the way through. Told through the eyes of sharp-eyed young sleuths (the Tickham girls), the suspense and excitement of the unfolding drama will surprise and enthral any reader who enjoys a funny and well-written 'whodunit'. Beguiling, sagacious, and thoroughly good fun.

There are few review about this one but they are in general extremely positive. Somehow I expected to enjoy this audiobook much more than I did. For starts, there is changing POV's, completely unannounced. The story is told by the two sisters, who see the whole mystery and family affairs in a very different light. The book is written in a humorous tone, but the constant ramblings of both sisters got me tired really fast. I also found the book frivolous and very judgemental, and the adjective fat ...more

I enjoyed reading it.
It made me laugh as it has so many hidden humour.
I love the beautiful scene description.
This book is well written by the author, in terms of the grammar, sentence structure.
If you would like to have a relax day or learning correct standard English, this is the right book for you.
