Three Sisters by Helen Smith is the first book in the new “Emily Castles” mystery series. Publisher: Tyger Books, February 2011
It’s bonfire night in London. Emily has been invited to a party in the big house at the end of her street by the new owners, whom she has never met. Emily’s dog Jessie has recently died so Emily is feeling a little raw and emotional. How could she know, as she left her house that evening, that she was making an appointment with death?
This was a good short story. We meet Emily on her way to a neighborhood party, this after the death of her dog. She gets roped into a performance play, only is it real or not? We watch through Emily’s keen observation, the actions of the party-goers as Emily searches for the truth.
