I am very excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for Premeditated Myrtle and How to Get Away with Myrtle, two books in the Myrtle Hardcastle Mysteries by Elizabeth C. Bunce. I received copies for honest review from the publisher. Thanks so much to Algonquin Young Readers and Elizabeth C. Bunce for letting me be a part of this fun tour.
Myrtle is thrilled to make the acquaintance of Mrs. Bloom, a professional insurance investigator aboard to protect the priceless Northern Lights tiara. But before the train reaches its destination, both the tiara and Mrs. Bloom vanish. When Myrtle arrives, she and Peony discover a dead body in the baggage car. Someone has been murdered—with Aunt Helena’s sewing shears.
The trip is derailed, the local police are inept, and Scotland Yard is in no rush to arrive. What’s a smart, bored Young Lady of Quality stranded in a washed-up carnival town to do but follow the evidence to find out which of her fellow travelers is a thief and a murderer? (Synopsis from Goodreads)
