17 May Premediated Myrtle: Chapter Book Review
Premeditated Myrtle by Elizabeth C. Bunce
Fans of spunky detectives, take note! Myrtle Hardcastle is on the case.
In 1890s England, Myrtle Hardcastle, the daughter of a prosecutor, spends her days with her governess, observing her neighbors, and generally keeping an eye out for suspicious behavior. Her observation is rewarded when her neighbor dies under possibly suspicious circumstances. But the adults in her life are dubious about Myrtle’s deductions. Can one girl find the truth and get justice?
If you like stories about kid detectives, especially the Enola Holmes series or The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place, the Myrtle Hardcastle books are sure to become new favorites! How to Get Away with Myrtle and Cold-Blooded Myrtle are available now
While Premeditated Myrtle is a lot of fun, the story also looks at bigger questions like the true meaning of justice. Myrtle’s quest for the truth has real consequences for the people around her.
