Mollie is excited!
She has been a private detective for six months, and FINALLY a BIG case has landed on her desk. If she solves it, it will make the papers and make her agency famous. She needs to give it her full attention; BUT, she already has three cases she is working on. And when she gets an unexpected lead for her oldest case, she HAS to run with it.
Could her new BIG case be linked to her oldest case?
Mollie is almost twelve years old, a regular kid except she has her own detective business along side school and the usual stuff. With two cases on the go and just having picked up another, school and chores she is a busy little bee. The new case is a big one and could be what finally puts her on the map and get the word. Juggling three cases and a little help from her friend we follow Mollie as she investigates.
I picked this up after reading a really horrific crime book so I was delighted to step into a book that was a bit more innocent. A sweet young girl and two cat characters (they don't play huge parts but are involved in at least one case and mentioned throughout) so you always get a thumbs up for a kitty or two. I know not everyone loves or appreciates cat characters or ones that have any thinking/internal talking but for me and at this point in time it was grand.
We follow the three wee cases, very simplistic but good thinking for a bairn. Some of her behaviours you are like aw hell no for an eleven year old and some young readers may try and copy - I mean she was working a case so needs must lol. A great wee book for an escapism, very innocent but enough happenings to keep you entertained. It is a really innocent feel good type book, intrigue, mystery, investigation by a pre teen and co.
I read it in less than a day - pretty much one sitting, a perfect read to just tap out of your everyday and slip into a more simplistic time/adventure/characters. This was my first time reading this author I would absolutely read her again, 4/5 for me this time.
