“The Swifts” is a delightful and hilarious mystery adventure that will captivate fans of Robin Stevens and Lemony Snicket. This whimsical tale takes readers on a journey with Shenanigan Swift, a determined young girl who refuses to let her name define her.

From the day of her birth, each member of the Swift family is bestowed with a name and definition from the sacred Family Dictionary. However, Shenanigan is not content to conform to her presumed destiny as a troublemaker. Fueled by her imagination and ambition, she dreams of becoming a pirate, an explorer, or even a detective.

When chaos strikes and Arch-Aunt Schadenfreude is nearly murdered, Shenanigan reluctantly embraces the opportunity to unravel the mystery. Assisted by her sisters and cousin, she dives headfirst into the investigation, only to discover that the situation is far more complicated than she ever imagined. With additional murders, a hidden treasure, and an abundance of suspects, the young sleuth finds herself facing numerous challenges.

The strength of this book lies in its endearing and well-developed characters. Shenanigan Swift is a lovable and spirited protagonist who defies expectations and showcases the power of individuality. As she navigates the treacherous waters of her family’s mansion, readers will find themselves rooting for her every step of the way. Her indomitable spirit and her audacity to call a spade a spade will entice the readers, for she will resonate with every other human being who finds themselves trapped within intangible and invisible boundaries.

The author’s witty writing style adds an extra layer of charm to the story. The narrative is infused with clever wordplay and puns that will elicit laughter from readers of all ages. Furthermore, the pacing is well-executed, with the plot twisting and turning, keeping readers engaged and guessing until the very end.

“The Swifts” also delves into deeper themes of self-discovery and the importance of defining oneself. As Shenanigan explores her identity amidst the chaos of the murder mystery, readers are encouraged to reflect on their own journey of self-definition.

Overall, this book is a delightful blend of humour, mystery, and adventure. It seamlessly weaves an entertaining plot with memorable characters and meaningful themes. Whether you’re a fan of Robin Stevens, or Lemony Snicket, or simply in search of a rollicking good time, “The Swifts” is a must-read.
