Dusty Pages Review: The Mystery of the Jewelled Moth
Wonder at the puzzling disappearance of the Jewelled Moth! Marvel as our heroines, Sophie and Lil, don cunning disguises, mingle in high society and munch many cucumber sandwiches to solve this curious case! Applaud their bravery as they follow a trail of terrible secrets that leads straight to London’s most dangerous criminal mastermind, and could put their own lives at risk . . .
It will be the most thrilling event of the season!
Another great adventure (with a third due out next year). I was really excited to read this and was not disappointed. Its the London season and one young debutante is in a tizzy. Her broach has gone missing. As Sophie and Lil investigate, they are drawn deeper into the mystery by the gruesome discovery of a body. Somehow this all has to tie back to the devilish Baron.
I just adore the cover and I loved this book. All the same characters were there, along with a host of new ones, that made it feel like hanging out with old friends. The mystery had its twists and turns but ultimately vindication was mine. I knew there had to be some connection between Sophie and the Baron, even if she herself was unaware of it. Hopefully in the next one we'll get to learn more about a certain mysterious photograph. However I do think its unfair that Lil gets to do all the fun bits and undercover work.
I give this
