Stop! There’s a Mystery Book Bequeather on the loose!
Last Wednesday, I opened the front door to find a carrier bag brimming with books had been left on the doorstep. I was flabbergasted. I’d been in all day, but hadn’t heard anyone drive past, let alone come up to the house. How curious!
As I was late for school pick up I had to wait until my return to explore further, which was torture, but children do tend to complain when their needs run a close second to mystery book investigations . Closer scrutiny revealed that the bag was chock full of black spined Penguins – Holy Joy! This secret, seasonally-challenged Santa knew my tastes well, but there was no evidence of who they might be – no note, no names or jottings in the margins. What a mystery!
What treasure – check out these titles!
Setting my brow into a quizzical frown, I made like Jessica Fletcher, to solve the mystery of the secret book bequeather, once and for all.
Bearing in mind the remoteness of where I live, and my reclusive tendencies, it didn’t take long, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself. So, thank you, Jeannie! I’m completely thrilled with the books and can’t wait to get stuck into them, and solving the mystery just made it even better!
