The Lovereading4Kids comment

A gripping murder mystery with a fast moving plot that twists and turns as one gruesome event follows another. Poppy is off to a remote Scottish island to take part in a free action-packed adventure holiday. But right from the first there are some odd and scary things going on. Can Poppy keep her nerve and can she uncover the mysteries that are going on behind the scenes? Tanya is the author of a number of novels for slightly older readers and this title is the first in a proposed mystery series. It’s spot on.
