I looked at Daisy. Her eyes were glittering and her cheeks were pink. This was Daisy with a Plan.

About the Author

Robin Stevens was born in California and grew up in an Oxford college, across the road from the house where Alice in Wonderland lived. She has been making up stories all her life. When she was twelve, her father handed her a copy of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and she realised that she wanted to be either Hercule Poirot or Agatha Christie when she grew up. When it occurred to her that she was never going to be able to grow her own spectacular walrus moustache, she decided that Agatha Christie was the more achievable option. She spent her teenage years at Cheltenham Ladies' College, reading a lot of murder mysteries and hoping that she'd get the chance to do some detecting herself (she didn't). She went to university, where she studied crime fiction, and then worked in children's publishing. She is now a full-time writer. Robin now lives in London with her pet bearded dragon, Watson.

Reviews

The second book in Robin Stevens' fabulous Wells and Wong schoolgirl detective series - think St Trinians mixed with Miss Marple. These are thrilling books for tween detectives who adore solving dastardly murders, jolly hockey sticks and iced buns for tea * Guardian *
A feelgood blend of Malory Towers and Cluedo . . . Stevens has upped her game in this new volume * Telegraph *
An entertaining, nostalgic brainteaser * Sunday Times *
A delight . . . The Agatha Christie-style clues are unravelled with sustained tension and the whole thing is a hoot from start to finish * Daily Mail *
A feast for readers -- Amanda Craig * New Statesman *
Arsenic for Tea is a joy. A multi-layered sandwich cake of joy . . . Stylish, charming, witty and delightful . . . Worth cancelling everything for * Did You Ever Stop to Think *
Even better than its predecessor . . . Brilliant * The Bookzone *
These Agatha-Christie-indebted tales involve detective duo Daisy Wells and her sidekick Hazel Wong, wealthy schoolgirls from England and Hong Kong. In the first book, they investigated a murder at their boarding school. This time, Daisy's family's stately home - a hotbed of jealousy and greed - provides a rich cast of suspects when it's not just the cake candles that are snuffed out at a birthday tea party. Emotional conflict, logical deduction and the period setting make for an entertaining, nostalgic brainteaser -- Nicolette Jones * Sunday Times *
As irresistible and entertaining as the first. Just the thing to devour with a pot of tea and a plate of scones * Young Post *
