‘Nancy Parker’s Diary of Detection’ by Julia Lee

Stolen treasures, sneaking around and a potentially murderous mistress……

Young Nancy Parker could hardly have imagined that her very first job as a housemaid (for the thoroughly modern Mrs Bryce) would turn into a situation worthy of a plot in one of the sixpenny detective novels she loved to read.

The plot unfolds through an engaging mixture of diary entries from the would-be detective, Nancy Parker, and a story which introduces two other budding investigators in the picturesque seaside town of Seabourne.

A great read, full of plot twists and red-herrings. I would thoroughly recommend this book to all lovers of mystery and six-penny detective novels!
