Wicked Whispers At St Brides by Debbie Young is the third marvellous instalment of the Gemma Lamb Cosy Mystery series. It is equally engaging and amusing as the previous two books.
There is the theme of family. St Brides functions as a family but we also need our own blood family. There is a very inventive way for some to spend time with theirs.
Secrets kept for years, eventually have a way of being unearthed. There are some surprising but very welcome revelations.
Sinister Stranger At St Brides by Debbie Young is the second book in the Gemma Lamb Cosy Mystery series which is highly entertaining.
Once more St Brides is at the heart of another mystery to solve after a stranger arrives on the doorstep. If manners maketh the man, then this is certainly no gentleman with his arrogance and his rudeness.
The school functions as a family of all girls. Though they are from rich backgrounds, the girls are kind and down to earth.
Debbie Young has created some highly amusing verbal volleys between the characters. I love the English novel and film references. Also highly amusing was the fact that a character can never remember the correct names of others.
Dastardly Deeds At St Brides by Debbie Young is a highly entertaining contemporary cosy mystery that amused me from the start. It is the first book in the Gemma Lamb series.
All the action is set at St Brides, a girls boarding school. No men are officially allowed, so all the staff are called ‘Miss’ in order to satisfy the parents. Even the male cat has to be referred to as a she!
I loved the cat, McPhee, who liked a cosy seat or to drape himself round the Head’s shoulders! I kept picturing the cat in Harry Potter who goes everywhere with his master!
The school functioned as a family, looking out for each other and with shared experiences.
