The girls are back again and they have a new mystery to solve, this time involving mummies, treasures, and more!

This one is a short one, 96 pages + some extras. I was at first very worried that this would just be an UK store exclusive, but then came the happy news this one would also be released to everyone. Imagine my delight and how hard I squealed. I would be able to read this book! Yay!

This time our POV is Daisy. She isn't always a favourite of mine, mostly to do with her attitude and how sh

Charming short story to tide us over until the 7th book arrives later in the year.

That was awesome! A lovely novella with all the ingredients of a great Wells and Wong mystery - interesting puzzles, the Pinkerton boys making an appearance and a dash of what's fun about London. A beautiful treat, I gobbled it up in a matter of minutes. ...more

I have read this hundreds of times before but my re-read of this series but it wouldn't be the same without reading this. It was a little boring to read as I knew almost every sentence but was amazing anyway!
Stay safe everyone!!!

This was a fun short read. This mystery is set in between books six and seven it is a short story told from Daisy's POV. In this short story, we see the characters joining up with George and Alexander to solve the mystery of a series of robberies that have occurred at a number of museums.

I liked being back in this world and with these characters. I think that this series is a lot of fun. This is a short story so it doesn't have the same detail or tension as a full-length novel. The mystery was

Read- June 2020 for the MakeYourMythTaker Readathon (Assassin- quick read) and the Kpop Readathon (Shinee-Undercover- Read a mystery or a thriller)
- Objectively is this a 5 star read? Probably not. Am I going to rate it 5 stars though? 100%
Even if it wasn't a 5 star read it would still be a 4 star read though so I don't feel too bad about it, besides I prefer to rate based on my own enjoyment of a book.

Review Taken from The Pewter Wolf

For the past few months, I’ve been itching to get back into the Murder Most Unladylike series. I have no real reason why - I read Arsenic For Tea - the second book in the series - back in 2015 and I read a Mini-Mystery, The Case of the Blue Violet, in 2016. And I always said that these were fun and I wanted to go back.

But for one excuse or another, I never did return and, when I tried, I couldn’t find my “in”. I tried with the fourth book in the series - Jolly F

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Case of the Missing Treasure is a mini-mystery, narrated by Daisy about the Detective Society and the Junior Pinkertons solving the mystery of a series of break-ins in London Museums. It was nice to see both societies working together, as previously, they have been up against one another (Detective Society is still the best though!).

There was something about the narrative style that made this book funny to read. Such as when Daisy thinks about her and Hazel’s future Detective So

Everytime I pick up a Robin Stevens novel, I smile. Whether its from the opening first line, an exciting ramped up tension bit or I’m just in awe of the genius that is Hazel and Daisy, I know I’m in for a treat. With The Case Of The Missing Treasure, it was exactly the same and I couldn’t wait to dive back into the world of Wells and Wong before Death in the Spotlight is out.
Given that this short story involves the British museum and my all time favourite historical period the Ancient Egyptians,

There isn't a single US library listed in World Cat that owns a copy of this book, but I got a copy from Thriftbooks and gleefully looked forward to reading it. Even though it is very small and short, this novella is delightful, and it wasn't a problem at all that I haven't had the opportunity yet to read the book that precedes it, since Robin Stevens never spoils her stories retrospectively. This was so good, and I'm glad that I got to curl up and enjoy the inventive and surprising mystery stor ...more

In this mini mystery we join Hazel and Daisy as she tells us the story of her birthday and the treasure hunt she had set for her by her Uncle Felix and Aunt Lucy as they join up with the Pinkertons again and work together to solve the mystery which coincides with a real crime being solved thanks to them.

As a lover of museum's I really enjoyed this mystery as artefacts were going missing due to theft. The girls and boys detective and intellectual skills were as sharp as ever and are still acting

This was the first book I had read by Robin Stevens. I read this book as looking for detective stories for my 9 year old grand daughter. It is well written and I liked the characters though some parts are a little too unbelievable. I also felt it is a shame that it is set in a world, both time and experience wise, far removed from modern girls lives. I would suggest that this series suits reading in the order it was written rather than dipping into it as I did, there is a lot of reference to pas ...more

I really enjoy these little 'Murder Most Unladylike' mysteries, they're easygoing, fun and still full of twists and turns. This read isn't a full size book, it is more of a novella but it is a very enjoyable little afternoon tea sort of read. The mystery was fun and simple yet not simple enough that you can guess it straight away, and the characters are very relatable and entertaining. This story is great for any age even though its aimed at a younger audience and I read this outside of the seri ...more

The Case of the Missing Treasure is a novella- or short story-length instalment of the Wells and Wong series which I had thought came after Death in the Spotlight but which it became clear from references in Death in the Spotlight actually comes first. It's fun but very slight; I found that I missed Hazel's thoughtful voice (like the other short stories in the series, this is narrated by one of the other characters, in this case Daisy), and it also felt rather as though it was aimed at a slightl ...more

A lovely short and easy little read that takes the Detective Society and the Junior Pinkertons to investigate in the British Museum! When precious artefacts begin to go missing all over London, the British Museum is suspected to be the next target. Will Daisy, Hazel, Alexander and George catch the thief before they strike again?

Quite impressive for such a small book, but I don’t think it entirely lived up to my expectations after reading all of Robin Steven’s other incredible books. The plot wasn’t very exciting and the ending was quite predictable. I enjoyed it a little, but wouldn’t be impressed if that was the first book I’d read by Robin Stevens. 😕

How cute is this little story?

I wasn't sure about this series and before I start reading it I wanted to have a look and check if it was of my liking.

That's the reason why I chose this mini mystery book and what a good choice!

I found Daisy (The main character) a I-know-all kind of girl which can be a bit annoying but she also could accept when the rest of the gang discovered something and I liked that.

I found the short mystery very amusing, entertaining and I wasn't able to crack it before they

Hazel is getting more and more confident and I really hope Daisy will be less of a butt soon!

I love the "Aren't the British government ever ashamed of how much they steal" narrative, because sometimes museums feel so weird.

How the group stumbled upon the real mystery was fun.

Also "...but I have discovered that when I look at boys I cannot see what Hazel does." 👀

This book was SUPER! Another spectacular murder most unladylike ( mini) book . It was a bit easier to solve ( I actually solved it) . It didn’t introduce the characters and you just hat to think of someone who could have done it ( a guard for example) . I actually thought that was clever because it was more realistic. Great book 📖.

We got about halfway before Miss 6 decided that the characters were boring and decided to swap books.

Miss 6 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or themes. We try to get different ones out every week or so; it's fun for both of us to have the variety and to look at a mix of new & favourite authors.

A fun mini-mystery from the Wells and Wong series. Daisy and Hazel are in London after their return from Hong Kong and during a treasure hunt manage to get tangled up in something more serious. Daisy's writing this one - and her uncle Felix is back with his new wife. So much fun. ...more
