The Very Merry Murder Club, edited by Serena Patel and Robin Stevens - Review

Tuesday, January 4, 2022

I have to show you the front cover of this book but also the cover of the hardback under the dust jacket, and the beautiful end papers! This book was a joy to hold and would make a lovely gift for the middle grade reader in your life! I saw it promoted on Robin Stevens' twitter and pre ordered it immediately. I saved it for just before Christmas because all the stories are set at Christmas or in the winter. 

There's a mixture of stories, featuring a mixture of families and diverse kids, which I liked. I liked the spooky mystery stories and my favourite was the murder mystery set in a hotel where a family has to stay when their car has broken down. There was a couple of stories I didn't like as much, but that's what happens with anthologies. I found the book a bit hard to read, but I think that's because it was the week before Christmas when I'm always humming with anxiety anyway. But, I do think this is a lovely gift for a tween/middle grade reader, and I recommend it for that.
