The Spy, Sleuth & Snoop Scoop

This is the first book of a spy trilogy set in Regency England.  Mary Quinn is a 12 year old orphan living in the streets of London.   She is caught stealing and sentenced to hang until a mysterious woman from Miss Scrimshaws Academy for Girls takes her in.  The real purpose of the Academy is not to teach young ladies the gentle arts, of course.  It is to train ladies in detective work!  Who better to find out things than a young lady placed inside a private home as a Nanny or Ladies Maid?

I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the next installments. I want to find out what happens to Mary Quinn!



Born to read, forced to work.
