it was amazing
bookshelves: crime, historical-mystery

I had to have a break from convents! Looked through my bookshelf and fell upon this with delight, as I’d absolutely adored his previous book, The Sweetness At the Bottom of the Pie. A murder mystery set in a small English village, it stars the utterly delightful (if rather dangerous) 11 year old girl-turned-detective, Flavia de Luce. The puzzle is wonderfully puzzling, the characters sufficiently eccentric and the asides about poisons and famous murderous funny and fascinating. Don’t be turned off by the strange titles – these books are wonderful.
