The Distinguished and Radiant Ava May Durrell

The second clue was found where Judith Peters, Alison’s older sister had hoped, and grabbing the clue, the team of three ran from the spot not wanting to give the other three teams an advantage. They were the first to the spot and desperately wanted to keep the first place.

I am at best for one season but my name suggests otherwise.” Frowning, Judith looked between her two partners. “What can it be?”

“I believe you are correct, Mrs Durrell,” replied her male companion, “so let us head there immediately.”
