Ace detective Laura Marlin returns in another gripping adventure mystery for World Book Day 2014, from award-winning author, Lauren St John. When a prize-winning essay earns Laura Marlin an invitation to a midnight picnic on mysterious Bodmin Moor she can hardly wait, especially since her best friend, Tariq, and husky, Skye, get to come too.

Laura Marlin Mysteries: The Midnight Picnic World Book Day 2014 Press Reviews

... a well told story full of excitement and adventure. There is plenty of information about farms and racing to please animal lovers, and a plot which is sufficiently realistic for readers to dream of solving similar mysteries themselves. Fans new and old of Laura Marlin will thoroughly enjoy it, and will be keeping their fingers crossed that Laura will soon be back to beat the bad guys and solve further crimes. * THE BOOK BAG * Lauren St John delivers a fast-moving plot filled with doubles and doppelgangers in this exhilerating read. As always, Laura Marlin makes for a redoubtable heroine who can teach the professionals a thing or two about mystery solving. * BOOKTRUST * Winner of the Blue Peter Book Award, Lauren St John adds another dramatic story to her excellent Laura Marlin Mysteries... Lauren St John provides a vivid setting of the Hermitage for this fast moving adventure. -- Julia Eccleshare * LOVEREADING * One of the best series around for younger readers keeps getting better. Highly recommended as a very cleverly plotted adventure. * THE BOOKBAG *
