Death Sets Sail: A Murder Most Unladylike Mystery (A Murder Most Unladylike Mystery, 9)
About this deal
You said at the beginning that the book was a roller coaster to write but it was well worth the effort. I really enjoyed this book and I hope you enjoyed writing it even if it was a bit difficult. And personally, I think the spoiler alert and “rules” (which, incidentally are merely guidelines since they cannot be enforced), are more likely to encourage the temptation than help resist it. You have inspired me so much to write (I have even been writing a story of my own) and to do a little detecting actually!!!
Daisy, Hazel, Amina , Alexander and George , they together solved the case. Even Hazel’s father, her sisters, Uncle Felix and Aunt Lucy were there😂 I didn’t expect all of them to be in a single book❤️ What’s going to happen to Hazel and Alexander, Daisy and Amina, George and Lavinia…Kitty and Beanie??? I think the fact I am writing this at 1:20 in the morning after finishing the novel is probably the best way of expressing how much I loved it.I often get this feeling where I almost seem to choke with happiness. This happened about five times in this book – which is probably a record! There is so much more I could say and so much more I loved about it but this comment is already long enough.
I can relate so much to so many characters from MMU, and I love how much of May we saw in DSS. She’s such a fun, energetic, yet smart person – I think she’d make the perfect detective!!Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are in Egypt, taking a cruise along the Nile. They are hoping to see some ancient temples and a mummy or two; what they get, instead, is murder. The final novel in the number-one bestselling, award-winning Murder Most Unladylike series. Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are in Egypt, where they are taking a cruise along the Nile. They are hoping to see some ancient temples and a mummy or two; what they get, instead, is murder. Also travelling on the SS Hatshepsut is a mysterious society called the Breath of Life: a group of genteel English ladies and gentlemen, who believe themselves to be reincarnations of the ancient pharaohs. Three days into the cruise their leader, Theodora Miller, is found dead in her cabin, stabbed during the night. It soon becomes clear to Daisy and Hazel that Theodora’s timid daughter Hephzibah, who is prone to sleepwalking, is being framed.

But there is danger all around, and only one of the Detective Society will make it home alive… Death Sets Sail (Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries #9) by Robin Stevens – eBook Details
I was quite sad when I read the first chapter (listened to the first chapter in the Waterstones Zoom book event) and was quite reluctant to read on but the ending was so heartwarming with the fact that Daisy was actually alive! It was lovely also reading how Daisy and Hazel’s personality had courage grew! I Am currently gazing at my finally full collection of Murder Most Unladylike and I am thinking to myself that I have finished them, I am finished the wonderful adventures of Hazel Wong and Daisy Wells and I am sad!
Robin, you have written the perfect ending to series. When May saw the wire, I knew it was something important! I’m so glad everyone gets together in the end. This is definitely my favourite Book out of all the MMUs, along with Death in the Spotlight and First Class Murder, which I both loved because of the plot, and this one is the same. I love how you took inspiration from Death on the Nile for this book, I could kind of see it in the book. I really love how you managed to tie up all of the loose ends in the series, like the romances and the friendships, and also gave a massive teaser for The Ministry of Unladylike Activity with May. I loved how all the Wongs were involved in this book, with Rose almost giving up her life to save May’s, and with Mr Wong going along with the lie that Daisy and Hazel were policewomen! Thank you for giving the series a perfect ending! Robin's books are: Murder Most Unladylike (Murder is Bad Manners in the USA), Arsenic for Tea (Poison is Not Polite in the USA), First Class Murder, Jolly Foul Play, Mistletoe and Murder, Cream Buns and Crime, A Spoonful of Murder, Death in the Spotlight and Top Marks for Murder.
