Girl Detectives Just Wanna Have Fun

By Philippa Kaye - ISBN: 9781922850553

It’s 1984, hairstyles are big, skirts are short and Birdie Mealing is just a girl who wants to have fun… Until her uncle goes missing.

With a little help from her friends, Birdie, a talented musician turned amateur sleuth, is determined to find her uncle – the only father figure she has ever known.

Detective Herb Lawson has other ideas though and knows that Birdie, a magnet for trouble, should leave the serious investigation to him.

Fat chance, detective!

The deeper Birdie gets while solving the case of her uncle’s disappearance, the more she unravels a connection to a fatal explosion on the harbour… and the underworld kingpin who was jailed for it.

The closer she gets to the guarded but gorgeous Herb, the more she questions his motives… and her own identity.

Having fun yet, Birdie?

“A perfect combination of mystery and a sizzling romance, absolutely enthralling read! Birdie’s perspective was a joy to read… Amazing!” Josie, Indie Book reviewer
