Book of a Month to share with you!

Our current Book of the Month is

Kat Wolfe Investigates written by Lauren St John.


Kat Wolfe loves her new home in idyllic Bluebell Bay, especially as it comes with a resident wildcat. But when she starts pet-sitting for pocket money, she finds that beneath the town’s perfect surface lie some dark and dangerous secrets . . . After a pet owner vanishes from his clifftop mansion, Kat turns to her new friend, Harper Lamb, for help. What began as mystery-solving holiday fun quickly turns deadly for Wolfe and Lamb. Can they count on their unruly animals to save their lives?


This is the first of a brand-new series from award winning writer Lauren St John, and it doesn't disappoint!  Full of mystery, adventure and lots of wonderful characters, Kat Wolfe Investigates is sure to become a firm favourite with budding young detectives and animal-lovers.
