Dead Man’s Cove by Lauren St John

Dead-Mans-Cove-HBB31-403x600My friend read this book/series and she asked me if I would review it on my blog, as you can see, I said yes….

Blurb: When orphaned Laura Marlin moves from a children’s home to live with her uncle in Cornwall, she longs for a life of excitement just like the characters in her favourite detective novels.

A real life adventure is on hand as she is deposited at her uncle’s spooky house . . . Why does her uncle, Calvin Redfern, forbid her to go to Dead Man’s Cove? What’s the truth about Tariq, the silent Indian boy who lives with the flamboyant Mukthars? Who is J? Who has left the message in a bottle for Laura to discover? Mysteries abound and who better to solve them than Laura Marlin, ace detective?

Accompanied by her trusty companion, Skye, a three-legged husky, the dog she’s always wanted.

I have read the first 3 or 4 chapters when I was at my friend’s house and I haven’t managed to get hold of a copy since, but from the small amount of the novel I read, I thought it was very good. The novel is a thrilling mystery book, and is hard to put down, as I found out for myself. My friend who has read this book, loves it. If you didn’t know, this book is part of a series with several other books, also Lauren St John has written the very popular horse book ‘One dollar Horse’. Please do have a read of this book as I would love to hear your opinion on the book, and I will make sure to get a copy and finish the book, and hopefully the series. Lauren St John also has a website, here is the link to it…..http://laurenstjohn.com
