And I don't like blood.Nancy Parker has recently been engaged in her first position - as a housemaid for the very modern Mrs Bryce.

Local burglaries, a cook with a deep, dark secret - and Mrs Bryce's own glamorous but murky past. Will Nancy solve the mysteries while still keeping on top of her chores?A hilarious and energetic middle-grade mystery, narrated part in the third person and part through Nancy's journal.
