Tiny TripFiction Summer Giveaway!Peril in Paris by Katherine Woodfine – PARIS, FRANCE

Illustrated by Karl James Mountford

It’s 1911, and the young detectives of Taylor & Rose are turning their talents to espionage! On a case for the mysterious Secret Service Bureau, the daring Miss Sophie Taylor and Miss Lilian Rose must leave London for the boulevards and grand hotels of Paris. But danger and murder lurk beneath the bright lights of the city… As aeroplanes soar in the skies overhead, our heroines will need to put all their spy skills to the test to face the peril that awaits them…

 

Spies in St. Petersburg by Katherine Woodfine – ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA

Illustrated by Karl James Mountford

With Sophie still missing in action after their explosive mission in Paris, Lil decides to take matters into her own hands. On a new mission for the Secret Service Bureau, can Lil find Sophie in misty, mysterious St Petersburg? Can they uncover the identity of their true enemy and can they trust anyone – even the Bureau? It’s time for Sophie and Lil to put their spy skills to the test.

 

Villains in Venice by Katherine Woodfine – VENICE, ITALY

Illustrated by Karl James Mountford

After the dramatic events of their mission to St Petersburg, Sophie and Lil know the truth – there’s a double-agent at work at the Secret Service Bureau. Whilst Lil pursues a dangerous line of enquiry in London, Sophie must set out on a new mission to Venice, following a twisted trail to discover long-buried secrets. But there are villains lurking amongst the city’s piazzas, canals and crumbling palaces, and in the shadows an old enemy lies in wait…

    I would love to go to Russia. I have been to Venice and to Paris but not the USA. My husband visited Russia in the middle of winter with a group of schoolboys and said it was fascinating but bitterly cold! I would prefer to go in the spring as I understand the summers can be very hot!!

    I’d love to go to New York City so it’s the USA for me. However, it was difficult to choose just one country from Sophie and Lil’s adventures!

    I should love a trip to New York. I’ve been to America but never visited New York. In these uncertain times this might scratch the itch!!
