First Class Murder by Robin Stevens (Book Beginnings & Friday 56)

Oh how dreadfully happy I am to be back with Daisy and Hazel! This is the third book in the series and, of course, I highly recommend that you back up and start with the first in the series if you haven't already fallen in love with these two. There's background information on the girls and some of the people that they encounter here that is covered elsewhere and I would hate for you to feel left out. Besides, they're spiffing books and I would recommend them to anyone who enjoys a good mystery -- not only the "middle grade" set that they're marketed for!
Friday 56 (today is page 56 from the paperback) is hosted at Freda's Voice 
& Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences) is at Rose City Reader.


  1. I love this one. And how you've presented it - the old fashioned typewriter print looks fantastic.

  2. Great opening and 56, I really need to get the first book in this series, to bad I couldn't find them on kindle. They are on my wishlist though. :)

  4. Great excerpts! I loved the dining car setting, and the descriptions. Now I'm curious. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  5. The first sentence grabs your attention, that's for sure. I agree with Bev about your typewriter font. It looks good.

  6. This sounds like a delightful series! I've been reading more young adult books lately and enjoying them immensely.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog. Your comments are appreciated.
