Party Girls Die in Pearls: An Oxford Girl Mystery

We rated this book:


When Ursula Flowerbottom arrives at Oxford University, she is ready for a productive academic year, full of lectures and sleepless nights spent studying in the library. Her new American friend, Nancy, on the contrary, is much more interested in Oxford’s party scene and snagging a well-connected aristocrat. Before either can settle into their new lives at Christminster College, an aristocratic “it” girl, India Brattenbury is murdered.

In order to pursue her dream of writing for the prestigious college newspaper, Ursula sets out to discover who killed India. Nancy is all too ready to help find out more about India if it means she can attend the numerous posh balls at the college and at the same time hunt for a new beau.

This fabulous mystery kept me entertained from beginning to end. Ms. Sykes really knows how to keep the reader invested in the story with brilliant descriptions and fun characters. I was so glued to the page, I almost hated to make it to the end. Not only was the 1980s setting a hoot, but it brought back long forgotten memories. I’m so glad I got to read this one.

Chris Hayden been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
