Publisher's Summary

Here is a country house murder mystery of sorts, for daughters and their mothers, and anyone else who wants to learn the correct way to eat a scone.

Violet has to prepare for her Home Economics assessment, but with a house full of guests and a lunatic sister playing detective, how will she ever get it done? And if the dog did not destroy her mother's cake, who did? Did she really see someone lurking down at the gatehouse? Which one is the bay tree, and what does nutmeg look like anyway? Should self-confessed teachers be allowed out into society?

All these questions must be answered before the weekend is over.

    "Fabulous cozy mystery"

    Looking at this synopsis, I thought this sounded awfully close to a cozy mystery. I cannot get enough cozy mysteries now, so even though it sounds a little young, I was up to try it.

    Boy was I in for a surprise. This could be thought of as young but it is adorable. From go I was hooked. Told in two points of view from sisters that are in a rivalry, of course because aren't all siblings, this whodunit was stick to your ears fantastic. The narrator, Claire M. James, did a wonderful job with the voices and did so well that you could almost think there were two narrators. I loved all of her voices but especially the mother's. Although we do not get the mother's point of view, and honestly it isn't really needed. By the end the reader knows enough of what is happening to see that although the mother is quite harried, she also knows quite a bit about what is going on in her household. As all mothers do!

    The girls were hilarious. Their banter back and forth was worth every minute. These two can bicker for ages, but just like sisters, don't say a word against the other sister or you'll be in for it. Again, siblings are weird like that.

    The case was of a cake that fell out of the window. Violet was at the scene of the crime, although it is in her pov so of course the reader understands, but Tabitha, or Kitty, will not let her live it down that she is a suspect and will remain a suspect until the culprit is found IF it is not Violet! Kitty's tenacious ability to be not only in Violet's face but everyone's is hilarious and a bit annoying. She is a detective on the case and plans to solve it come hell or high water!

    By the end I was a fan of both girls, although being a big sister myself I can feel for Violet much more than Kitty. The audio was wonderfully done and the narration, and plot, kept me on the edge of my seat. Again, this was simply adorable! And I was able to listen while painting so it kept my mind off of the menial, and quite boring, task!

    In short: Fabulous cozy mystery. I plan to buy this for my niece straight away!
