    Flavia de Luce. One of my favorite literary sleuths and heroines. (She would most appreciate being called a heroine, I think). In all seriousness, I do simple adore this series. As I've read each book, I love Flavia little bit more... and dare I say even Feely and Daffy. Bradley has created a brilliant evolution in Flavia's character over eight novels. Her intelligence, thirst for knowledge, frank observations on human nature, and deductive reaso...

    - I fear our world is changing, Miss Flavia, and not necessarily for the better. Wise old Dogger utters these prophetic words to Flavia in the first chapter, after she's come home from boarding school to no reception, her pet chicken gone, and her father in hospital with a bad case of pneumonia, no visitors allowed. But for our Flavia, now twelve and shaken up by it all, life goes on as usual mostly. She's pretty free to roam the countryside on ...

    First a disclaimer, that I love the Flavia de Luce series fare. Immensely. And each and every book, I do laugh and so enjoy Alan Bradley's writing skill re Flavia's thoughts as she is deducing. I especially love her descriptions of comparison in being shocked, or surprised, or physically reacting to extreme dislike or repulsion. Or of experiencing Gladys' functions as she rides in weather. So it was hard for me to rate this one only at 3 stars. I...

    I think i'll have to let this series go...Not that I expect all sugar and spice, but this was too much.

    Flavia is back, and delightfully on home turf at Buckshaw. In rapid order, she's stumbled into another corpse, a slew of interconnected mysteries and a grand new group of eccentrically interesting Brits to investigate. Ah, pure pleasure! I pondered how slowly this young miss has aged since I first became acquainted with her; in 2009, she first appeared in The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, as an eleven year old wild child. Seven years later,...

    I received an e-ARC of this novel through NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group, Ballantine.My rating for this novel is 2.5 stars rounded up to 3 because the writing is definitely better than deserving of only 2.5 stars. Unfortunately for me that's about all I can say that pleased me with this eighth novel in the series. The portions of this novel which caused me to lower my rating are the types of things which would be considered spoilers ...

    I know that I've said this before, but I just want to adopt Flavia and give her all my love. I'm also very happy that she's back at Bishop's Lacey! I didn't mind her so much in Canada but I missed all the secondary characters. It makes a difference when you have the whole gang back. Although, Flavia didn't get the welcome home that she deserved! You could definitely see her mature a little bit more in this book. She's only 12 but she's very smart...
