Book Review – Peril in Paris by Katherine Woodfine


It’s 1911, and the young detectives of TAYLOR & ROSE are turning their talents to ESPIONAGE.

On a case for the mysterious SECRET SERVICE BUREAU, the daring MISS SOPHIE TAYLOR and MISS LILIAN ROSE must leave London for the boulevards and grand hotels of Paris.

But DANGER lurks beneath the bright lights of the city – and INTRIGUE and MURDER lie in store. As aeroplanes soar in the skies overhead, our heroines will need to put all their spy skills to the test to face the PERIL that awaits them…

My favourite middle grade mystery series has been upgraded to a spy series!! Featuring awesome, smart, quick thinking and brave girls! Love it.

I really enjoyed the Sinclair’s mysteries books, and I think I’m going to enjoy the Taylor & Rose: Secret Agents series even more, based on this book.

Fun, intrigue, assassination plots, political intrigue, aeroplanes… what more does a book need?? I loved getting to see Sophie and Lil more settled into their lives as detectives, and now secret agents. And I really enjoyed getting more Tilly. I missed Billy and Joe though, the team didn’t quite feel right without them in it much. Though it was nice to hear some of the wider cast names being dropped too :):)

My only criticism is really that we don’t see enough of Sophie and Lil together, and it seems that the next one will at least start with them apart again. However, I thoroughly enjoyed getting to see them spread their wings 😀

4.5 stars and can’t wait for the next one!
