The Swifts by Beth Lincoln

The Blurb On The Back:

On the day they are born, each Swift is brought before the ancient Family Dictionary.

They are given a name and a definition, and it is assumed they will grow up to match.

Meet Shenanigan Swift …

She has other ideas.

Shenanigan Swift doesn’t believe in destiny

So what if her relatives all think she’s fated to be a troublemaker, just because of her name?  Shenanigan knows she can be whatever she wants – pirate, explorer, or ever detective.

Which is lucky, really, because when one of the Family tries to murder Arch-Aunt Schadenfreude, someone has to work out whodunnit.

With the help of her sisters and cousin, Shenanigan grudgingly takes on the case, but more murders, a hidden treasure, and an awful lot of suspects make things seriously complicated.

Can Shenanigan catch the killer before the whole household is picked off?  And in a Family where definitions are so important, can she learn to define herself?
