How to Get Away with Myrtle (Myrtle Hardcastle Mystery 2)
Twelve-year-old aspiring detective Myrtle Hardcastle doesn’t want to go to the English seaside on a relaxing vacation with her Aunt Helena. She would prefer to stay at home and keep an eye out for the next mystery to pop up. But alas, Myrtle is forced to leave on a train with her aunt, her cat, and her governess. How will she ever survive?
Myrtle strikes up an unlikely friendship with Ms. Bloom, a detective assigned the job of watching the Northern Lights tiara. When someone is murdered and the tiara is stolen, Myrtle knows that it is up to her to find the murderer and recover the tiara. Every clue leads to a dead end, and Myrtle doesn’t know if she can catch the killer. When Aunt Helena is suspected, Myrtle realizes time is running out.
I liked this book because it was a perfect mystery and featured a spunky heroine in charge. I enjoyed following each clue along with Myrtle, and I eagerly await the next book in this series!
