2017 book 41

Robin Stevens' Mistletoe and Murder
Here is how much I love the Wells and Wong series: I was eager to read this EVEN THOUGH it was Christmas themed! Luckily, it was also Cambridge themed (no worries: Gaudy Night is referenced), as the girl detective society goes to visit Daisy's brother (and other acquaintances) for the holidays--where foul play seems to be afoot, and where a rival detective agency is also on the scene! I love it so much!!!!! I really find these characters so fascinating, and Stevens does a really good job with acknowledging the racism of the 1930s. She is also great at writing a story that truly is appealing to all ages. GREAT stuff. A.
