The summary about "The Glendalough Mystery " :

Felix is a teenager who will be soon in summer holidays. his parents work a lot, so Felix can do everything that he wants and nobody can stop him.
But, his parents decide that Felix will spend his holidays in his uncle Basil’s hotel, in Glendalough, in Ireland. He won’t be able to do that he wants, that’s not really his dream about the summer holidays. The lodgers of the hotel are very strange and the hotel is very boring.

One night, the electricity was totally cut off and Mrs Pluck’s dogs disappeared !

Mr Lawrence was secretly in love with Mrs Pluck and her dogs always disturbed him.
That’s why he poisonned the dogs with a love potion and they were transformed into stuffed toys.

I expected Lady Black would be the culprit because she was really mad and crazy.
She had the keys of all the rooms but that didn’t happen !
