Much like The Case of the Blue Violet, the other novella in this series, The Case of the Deepdean Vampire is a bite-sized snack of a mystery, narrated by Daisy, rather than Hazel, who is the narrator of the full length novels. In this particular novella, Daisy recounts her triumphant solving of a case that has the Deepdean girls all of a dither: is Camilla really a vampire? And if not, how can one explain the, frankly, supernatural behaviour that she has been exhibiting of late? Of course Daisy, being a natural skeptic, manages to confound any latent whisperings of vampirism by performing some quite spectacular physical feats and making the links that others have failed to notice. I have to say that I didn't find this one quite as engaging as a short story as the Blue Violet, simply because the premise was hinged on a supernatural phenomenon and readers of this series will know that supernatural happenings are not an accepted part of the deal. From that standpoint then, the mystery could only have a perfectly ordinary explanation and when it came it wasn't quite as exciting or tricky as I was hoping it might be. I felt a little as if there hadn't been enough clues left out for canny readers to solve this one themselves, so wasn't quite as invested in the reveal as I may have otherwise been. So while not the most gripping of the girls' adventures so far, this is still a fun interlude between books for fans of Daisy and Hazel and the Detective Society.

    Oh this was delicious! As is the very generous extract from the next book. I'm so...pleased with Robin Stevens. And grateful too. She really does get it right every single time.

    Yawn. I do not care for Daisy as narrator. She's too prissy, too conceited, too darn up herself. The story was okay...ish...until the wrap. One saving grace, it was mercifully short and I couldn't sleep anyway. Mindless entertainment, but not very entertaining. Short fiction is not Stevens' strong suit, apparently. I only read it because it has been referenced in other books in the series. A resounding Meh. Meeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhh. Yawn. I do not care for Daisy as narrator.

    A strong short story from the Wells & Wong gals, although almost a little too short in my opinion. Things were a little less mysterious than I've found from the main books themselves, lacking some of the twists, turns and humour. Nonetheless, it was nice to hear it from Daisy's perspective over Hazel's, and that maybe entices me to touch in on the other short stories from the series...

    It is my favourite Mini - Mystery in the series! I love the ending which was very unexpected. Even though I am not a fan of Horror books, Horror - Mystery is what I need! I highly recommend this book.

    This mini mystery was even better than the last! It was the perfect book for Halloween and I read it in one sitting, in about 15 minutes(it WAS 33 pages). I can't wait to read what happens at Christmas in the next book, but until then, I'm just gonna marvel over how awesome this book is! This mini mystery was even better than the last!

    Good short story describing a non-murder case taken up by the schoolgirl detectives, narrated by Daisy in all her (annoyingly somewhat deserved) arrogance.

    Wells and Wong meet Dracula - what's not to love? And a great solution to the mystery, too. I didn't guess it this time (please don't take my Detective Society badge away).

    This is a cute little short story to add to the series. Great for a "filler" between other titles. This is a cute little short story to add to the series. Great for a "filler" between other titles.

    The Case of the Deepdean Vampire is the second of the two mini-mysteries written by Daisy, who is a brilliant narrator! She’s very quick-witted and blows her own trumpet in a way that’s highly entertaining to read. In this mystery, Daisy investigates the rumours of there being a vampire amongst the fifth-formers. Yet again, despite this not being a murder case, it was full of twists as Daisy tries to solve the case. I didn’t like this one quite as much as The Case of the Blue Violet, possibly beca The Case of the Deepdean Vampire is the second of the two mini-mysteries written by Daisy, who is a brilliant narrator!

I didn’t like this one quite as much as The Case of the Blue Violet, possibly because it’s not as deep a case to solve which made it slightly less interesting. That said, it’s still a solid 4.5/5 read and definitely worth it!

    The Case of the Deepdean Vampire: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ The Case of the Deepdean Vampire is about the idea that a new girl at Deepdean School for Girls is secretly a vampire. Daisy and Hazel detect this case, and I was surprised at the solution at the end of the mini-mystery. Again, I missed the dramatic build up to the end of the case that happens in a full-length mystery, but this did not stop me from enjoying this story.

    Awww 🥺 I definitely enjoyed this a little more than ‘the case of the blue violet’, and I liked seeing the changes in Daisy between the two novellas, which took place just before and after(during) book 4

    A fun but all too short visit to Deepdean and another case for Wells and Wong - this time told by Daisy. A nice Halloween-y treat as a warm up for the next book which is coming soon.
