It’s Christmas at Buckshaw and 11 year old amateur detective and chemist Flavia concocts a surefire method (chemically, of course) to prove that Father Christmas is real. In the meantime, Flavia’s father has rented out their manor house out to a film crew in a desperate attempt to stave off the tax man. Naturally, a murder is committed and Flavia meddles, despite the best intentions of Inspector Hewitt to keep her out of it. This is the fourth entry in the charming Flavia de Luce mysteries. And on a more superficial note, the jewel colored books look beautiful lined up on my shelves.

As the fourth in the Flavia de Luce series of books, I Am Half-Sick of Shadows does not disappoint! Flavia is as sassy as ever, the mystery satisfyingly juicy, and we get a further glimpse into the de Luce family complexities. This book (and the series) is a treasure--hilarious, charming, touching, and a great deal of fun.

The fourth in the Flavia de Luce series and what a wonderful break from everyday life - only Flavia could hatch up such an outrageous plot as her plan to trap Santa on Christmas Eve…

I adore this series and was so happy to see Bradley had put out a Christmas version--set entirely at the De Luce Buckshaw estate. It was a real treat, and Flavia's voice is, as-always, precocious, sharp and funny. The mysteries are always secondary to Flavia's inner ramblings and interactions with the adults around her.

Highly recommended, along with the rest of the books in the series.

Awesome series for young and adult. Enough mystery, funny moments and surprises to keep the reader glued to the book, laughing out loud, and looking forward for the next one!

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Christmas comes early for precocious Flavia de Luce with the arrival of a glamorous London film crew at Buckshaw, her family's country house, in Agatha-winner Bradley's fourth post-WWII mystery starring the endearing 11-year-old sleuth (after February 2011's A Red Herring Without Mustard). Flavia, a chemistry prodigy, must push her previous project — concocting a super stickum to trap Santa — to the back burner after actress Phyllis Wyvern turns up dead in a wingback chair with 'a length of ciné film, tied tightly, but neatly, in an elaborate black bow' around her throat. The murder investigation pits the cheeky schoolgirl's considerable deductive prowess against the local constabulary — and puts her in grave danger. With its sharply drawn characters, including the hiss-worthy older de Luce sisters, and an agreeable puzzle playing out against the cozy backdrop of a British village at Christmas, this is a most welcome holiday gift for Flavia fans."
