3.5-stars, really.

Flavia de Luce is back; solving a new mystery in this novel, the second book in the series "The Buckshaw Chronicles".

Flavia is very precocious - smart beyond her years, mature (when she needs to be) and all too aware the world around her is not always a safe place. She excels at chemistry and loves her lab and experiments. I found this book better than the first novel in "The Buckshaw Chronicles" series - The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie - though both are charming, interesting and not wholly predictable.
