Lauren St. John – Dead Man’s Cove


This book is the first in St. John’s Laura Marlin series of detective novels, and I get the feeling it’s aimed at older children, maybe around the age of 11 or 12. I decided to read it because I saw this for sale in a charity shop and I remember interviewing Lauren way back when I’d just started, and so I thought it would be nice for me to take the opportunity to read and review one of her books.

Unfortunately, I found it hard to get into it, although I did at least power through the pages pretty quickly, and I appreciate that I’m not necessarily the target audience here. Loosely speaking, it follows the story of an orphan called Laura who leaves foster care to go and live with a long lost uncle, and who stumbles upon a mystery or two while she’s out there.

It’s cliche in a few places here and there, but it’s also well-written enough and I can see why it would have its appeal if you were a kid of a certain age, or even a parent who wants to read a new bedtime story. So really, it’s your call!
