3 stars for this quick, fun read.
The Mystery of the Midnight Peacock is light entertainment that can be read quite well as a standalone or enjoyed as the latest instalment of the Sinclair Mysteries, in which loose ends are tied up. My favourite aspect of the book is the setting, in Edwardian England, in a dazzling department store, and in a country house for Christmas – it is all very nicely done. The characters are lightly sketched, the plot is dastardly fun, and overall this series is enjoyable reading for children.
I received this ebook free from NetGalley in return for an honest review. UK publication: 5 October 2017 by Egmont.
