The Unseen Guest by Maryrose Wood (The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place #3) (audio)

When Miss Penelope Lumley and the children go on a bird watching trip, they are surprised to find an ostrich on the grounds of Ashton Place. This mystery is soon cleared up by the arrival of the Widow Ashton, mother of Lord Ashton, and her companion, Admiral Faucet, the owner of said ostrich. But bigger mysteries are afoot at Ashton Place and Miss Lumley is determined to figure them out and keep the children safe too.

I really enjoy these books. Miss Lumley is so awesome and I forget she is actually only 15 years old.  She does such a wonderful job with the Incorrigibles. And I feel like there is one really big mystery to solve but so far we've only gotten little pieces. Like why is Miss Lumley's hair the same color as the children? And where are her parents? And what isn't her old headmistress telling her? Plus there are further mysteries introduced in this book especially involving Lord Ashton's father. I hope the next book starts bringing them together.

Katherine Kellgren is the narrator and as always does an excellent job. I love her willingness to howl and bark and otherwise just bring the whole story to vivid life.

  1. Still no answer to the mystery?
    Do we at least find out what the voices are that are alluded to in book 1?

    Great review btw.
