Review - Libby and the Parisian Puzzle by Jo Clarke

 Review - Libby and the Parisian Puzzle by Jo Clarke

Mystery-lover Libby is excited but nervous when she's sent to live with her aunt while her mother is working abroad.

Aunt Agatha is the headmistress of an extraordinary travelling school that moves from country to country. Libby joins it in Paris, where she is just starting to find her feet when her aunt is arrested, accused of a daring jewel robbery.

Can Libby and her new best friend Connie find the real thief and save her aunt?




I really enjoyed this, the first travelling schools mystery. The characters were fun, with a great relationship between Libby and Connie that felt lively and realistic. The mystery is one of the strongest parts of this book, and it totally drew me in with all the shiny jewels and mysterious people meeting all over Paris. 

Once the pieces began to fall into place, I was still gripped, wondering how it was all going to play out. The sense of place is also really strong, drawing on a wide range of Parisian sites, food and landmarks to really give the feeling that the city is an important character in the story. I'm interested in seeing how this is continued in future books in the series.

Oh, and the whole thing left me absolutely craving pastries!
