I love this series. Much like it's predcessors this book is a brilliant mystery novel for middle grade readers or those of us who are indulging our inner middle grade reader ... personally my inner Enid Blyton child fangirl. I love the historical elements to this series particularly in this case the references to the suffragette movement who were active at this time. I enjoyed following the story and trying to second guess what was happening and working out the mystery along with the characters. I can't wait foe the next book in the series.
