Godolphin School was delighted to welcome young pupils from local schools Chafyn Grove, Pitton Primary, Salisbury Cathedral School, and Avondale to join their own pupils from the Prep and Senior School Robin talked to students about her latest book in the Murder Most Unladylike series, the fabulously festive treat ‘Mistletoe and Murder’. She supplied them with inspiration for their own reading and writing too by sharing her story of why she became a writer of mystery novels, as well as inviting them to assist her in making up the foundations for their own murder mystery story. Students excitedly queued afterwards to receive Robin’s autograph in their new colourful books. Murder Most Unladylike was the biggest middle-grade debut of 2014, winning the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize (Young Fiction category) and garnering a loyal fan base and huge critical acclaim. Over 180,000 copies of the first four books have sold so far. Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are spending their Christmas holiday in snowy Cambridge. Hazel has high hopes of its beautiful libraries and inviting tea-rooms - but there is danger lurking in the dark stairwells of ancient Maudlin College. Two days before Christmas, a brutal accident takes place - but the Detective Society suspect murder. Faced with fierce competition from a rival agency, they must use all their cunning and courage to find the killer (in time for Christmas Day of course!)
