A former journalist, Janine Beacham has written all her life. She has always loved fairy tales and fantasy, and as a child would make up games for her friends to play at school. Janine once entered a competition where the prize was a real-life butler - which partly inspired the secret society of butlers in the Rose Raventhorpe Investigates series. Janine lives in Western Australia with her family.
I love the evocative atmosphere and the quirky cast of characters.

Rose is an excellent detective, I loved the more prominent role Orpheus was able to play in this book, and the butlers were as magnificent as ever. [...] I'm very hopeful this won't be the last I see of Rose, Orpheus and the Silvercrest Hall butlers, as I think this series is super underrated, but if it is, this was an excellent conclusion. * Hounds and Hauntings *
This is an excellent addition to the popular genre of historical mysteries for children. Excellently plotted, with realistic and well-rounded characters. * Parents in Touch *
