In Myrtle Peril (Myrtle Hardcastle Mystery 4)

We rated this book:


When Myrtle Hardcastle’s father is admitted to a hospital for his growing case of tonsillitis, Myrtle and Miss Judson are left to investigate his newest case: a young girl named Sally Cooke has come to collect on the Snowcroft fortune, and it’s Myrtle’s job to prove her identity as Ethel Snowcroft. On top of everything else, her father claims to have witnessed a murder at the very hospital he was staying in! Was this a hallucination as a side effect of the morphine? Or is something much more sinister going on?

This was an amazing fourth installment in the Myrtle Hardcastle series! The characters are funny and very realistic, and I loved reading about them throughout the mystery. This time, there were two mysteries instead of one, but in the end, they tied together really well, with great twists and turns right up to the end. The plot was vivid and exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time! I can’t wait until the next book! I would recommend this book to anyone ages ten and up.
