So, this book overall wasn't as good as the first three. But, as you can see, I liked it. Flavia is still Flavia. There was no pulling back on her character. It was very nice to visit again and I miss her again already. And the writing was every bit what I've come to expect. It just didn't seem like there was as much to this story as there had been with the others. I didn't feel like I had my fill when it was over. Who knows, maybe I'm just craving more after such long waits. It's a relief to expect to be out from under some of the financial pressure, and there certainly is more to Aunt Felicity then I ever guessed, which I think is going to come into play on a future mystery. How can it not? So unless I come back and change it, it's pushing upwards from four stars trying to reach the cutoff for rounding up. And Flavia's still one of my favorite characters of all time.
