Journey to the past with Katie Watson on this first 'Mystery in Time' Adventure!
Eleven-year-old Katie is sure her summer is doomed. Sheltered because of her injuries from a horse riding accident, she longs to break free on an adventure like the ones in her favourite detective novels. Instead, she's stuck with Nan and Pop whose idea of adventure is touring National Trust properties. But when Katie discovers a secret chamber in Otterly Manor with a magical painting, she falls -- literally -- into a perilous adventure beyond her imagination.
Whisked back in time to the reign of James I, Katie makes fast friends with Sophia, a mature, twelve-year-old ward of Earl Buckville, Lord of Otterly Manor. With Sophia's help, Katie learns to navigate her strange new world of lace ruffs, prim manners and strange superstitions. But Sophia and Katie's fun soon plummets into danger when murder strikes at Otterly Manor. With the murderer on the loose and Sophia's family threatened, can Katie prove her detective skills before life at Otterly Manor is ruined forever? Could succeeding cost her the chance of getting back home?
Sherlock Holmes meets Shakespeare in this time-travel murder mystery with a twist of magic.
This action-packed journey highlights the power of bravery and sacrifice when motivated by friendship. Readers of historical adventures, mysteries and horse stories will find delicious surprises in store.
"For readers with an imagination, this is a perfect page turning book to snuggle up with." - Tamsyn Alston, aged 12
