Fall Carnival: Mind Games by Heather Petty

Fall Carnival

Sherlock Holmes Booth

Ok raise your hand if you have ever secretly hoped you were more like Sherlock Holmes? Do you love to solve mysteries? When you look at something do you see clues and facts or does it just loom normal to you? Have you ever wanted some pointers from real life detectives? If so, today is your lucky day. We have the amazing duo Lock and Mori here to answer a few of our questions!

* Enter to win a finished copy of Lock & Mori and a swag pack at the end of this post! And don’t forget to visit bookiemoji.com to see today’s post featuring The Darkest Hour by Caroline Richmond*

_________________________________________________________________________________

Interview:

Dark Faerie Tales: Hi, you two, thanks so much for agreeing to join us today! To start things off can you introduce yourselves and tell us a little bit about your first case you solved?

MORI: My name is Mori, and this is Sherlock Holmes, the most irritating boy at my school. We were trying to figure out who was stabbing people to death in Regent’s Park.

LOCK: It took longer than it should have because someone was keeping secrets.

MORI: Things might have turned out better if someone had worried less about things that were none of his business and stayed out of my way.

DFT: When investigating a crime scene what is the first thing that you should look at?

MORI: I assume she’s asking you. I’m not the one who secretly longs for a P.I. office in a seedy part of town.

LOCK: Everything. No detail is irrelevant.

DFT: How do you go about finding leads in a case?

LOCK: I ask questions and pay attention. Usually the solution is pretty obvious, when you have all of the data.

DFT: Solving crimes can be rather dangerous so how do you make sure that you stay safe and out of harms way?

LOCK: Danger is a part of the job.

DFT: What is the best advice you would give to amateur detectives?

MORI: Prepare yourself for what you might find. Not all secrets are worth bringing to light.

DFT: Ok, now for a few more personal questions! Mori you have had quite a rough year with the passing of your mother and dealing with your abusive father. How did you learn to deal with the grief and hurt?

MORI: I’m not sure what that means, really, to deal with grief. All you can do is survive it as best you can and try to keep it from getting in your way. Grief isn’t something you can escape.

DFT: Sherlock you have always been more of an introvert so what was it like to work with a partner when you were solving these murders?

LOCK: I didn’t have a partner; I had a rival. A partner is an extraneous distraction. A rival makes you work harder.

DFT: Correct me if I’m wrong but you two are more then just friends. What is it about the other person that you are drawn to?

MORI: I’m not sure this is something definable. He’s clever, but not so clever that I can’t best him. And he seems to like me for all of the same reasons that I like myself. He hasn’t run off yet. That’s admirable.

LOCK: She fascinates me. I’ve never met anyone who can keep up with my thinking like she does. If ever she learns to trust me…Well. Regardless, she is always a surprise. She’s the one mystery I may never solve.

DFT: This might be a little personal but can you tell me what sharing your first kiss was like?

LOCK: I-I hardly remember it.

MORI: And here I thought you had an excellent memory.

DFT: If you were to attend a carnival together what do you think would be your favorite ride/game/food?

MORI: My mother used to take me to traveling funfairs. We’d eat mushy peas with mint sauce and brandy snaps with ice cream. She always bought me candy floss as well, which looks like it should taste amazing, but is really just like eating spoonfuls of sugar and gets your hands all sticky for nothing.

LOCK: People eat from those rat-infested stalls?

MORI: I’m very good at shooting BB guns at targets. And I’ll ride anything fast and falling, but nothing that spins. I don’t like to watch people turn green.

LOCK: Rides? The Ferris Wheel. It’s away from all of the people and gives me time to think.

MORI: You are delirious fun.

DFT: I’m so excited to read about your next adventure together, can you give us any clues as to what we can expect from Mind Games?

LOCK: She’s still pretty angry with me, though I think I’m making in-roads. And I’ve started taking on cases from other students at the school, though none are as interesting as Mori’s new case.

MORI: He is once in a while useful. And I need his skills now that someone’s trying to frame me for crimes I didn’t commit. It all starts with a severed hand in my rubbish bin…

About this Book:

Sherlock Holmes and Miss James “Mori” Moriarty may have closed their first case, but the mystery is far from over in the thrilling sequel to Lock & Mori, perfect for fans of Maureen Johnson and Sherlock.

You know their names. Now discover their beginnings.

Mori’s abusive father is behind bars…and she has never felt less safe. Threatening letters have started appearing on her doorstep, and the police are receiving anonymous tips suggesting that Mori—not her father—is the Regent’s Park killer. To make matters worse, the police are beginning to believe them.

Through it all, Lock—frustrating, brilliant, gorgeous Lock—is by her side. The two of them set out to discover who is framing Mori, but in a city full of suspects, the task is easier said than done. With the clock ticking, Mori will discover just how far she is willing to go to make sure that justice is served, and no one—not even Lock—will be able to stop her.

    I would love to be friends with Mori and Lock even if I will be a third wheel. They seem like fun if together, it’s like they complement each other and one wouldn’t be that much fun without the other. http://darkfaerietales.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_surprised.gif

    Yesss! I would love too even though I’d probably get in screaming matches with Lock and argue with Mori for clues.
