"Packed with the delicious elements—hidden passages, unexplained noises, suspicious servants—of a traditional British mystery, Lawson’s (The Actual and Truthful Adventures of Becky Thatcher) story, set in 1907 England, will keep readers engagingly puzzled throughout its multilayered twists and tangles....Well thought-out and deftly executed, Lawson’s novel will appeal to a wide audience." (Publishers Weekly (STARRED REVIEW))

The chance to inherit money brings out the best and the worst in the children. In Tabitha, one of the most endearing characters I’ve come across in a long time, it brings out her inner sleuth. Think Sara Crewe from A Little Princess with a touch of Agatha Christie. Something is not quite right at Hollingsworth Hall, and Tabitha’s lonely years spent in silent observation have trained her to notice what others miss.
And why is she lonely? Tabitha has the most unloving parents you can imagine. At home, they work her like Cinderella and make her sleep in the attic, and they are planning to send her to an orphanage. Her best friends are a mouse named Pemberton and a fictional detective named Percival Pensive.
One of the charming touches is the way the author opens each chapter with a quote from one of Percival Pensive’s mysteries. These are quotes Tabitha has memorized. They have always pulled her through hard times, and they don’t fail her now in the genuine mystery she finds at Hollingsworth Hall. Natalie Andrewson’s quirky black and white illustrations capture the spirit of this exciting tale. This is a book to have in the family library and read more than once.
