Peril at the Bake Off is a brilliant children’s mystery story. Ruth Quayle has captured the essence of childhood when life is one big adventure. This story is about kids being kids – having fun and getting into all sorts of trouble with their cousins.
Bella and Joe are spending the summer with their granny in her quiet village, Muddlemoor. Nothing terribly exciting ever happens there but for the children, everything a mystery and everyone is suspicious. It’s only days before the Great Village Bake Off and Granny’s top secret family recipe has gone missing. Bella, Joe and their cousins, Tom and Pip, decide it’s up to them to solve the case. Suspects, motives, clues and danger lurk around every corner. They need a plan of action so they can save the day – and the Bake Off. Add a stray cat to the mix and you have a hilarious adventure.
Peril at the Bake Off is light-hearted and full of experiences children can relate to. A summer of playing detective and running around with cousins is much better than a multi-skills camp at the local leisure centre and life is always more exciting when you’re keeping secrets from grown-ups.
Readers are going to absolutely love this story and I can’t wait to share it with children.
