Bradley is brilliant. I am addicted to Flavia de Luce novels. Can't wait to read the next one.

I purchased this not realizing it was part of a series. However, reading them in order is not necessarily a requirement (I didn't feel lost regarding character back stories, etc).

Flavia is delightful and I really enjoyed this book. She is clever and made me smile; wonderful role model for young readers.

The story did not drag and I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

Flavia and I, both post-WWII Baby Boomers, have little else in common. Yet I love reading the stories and puzzling things out along with her. Sometimes I understand things she doesn't, but often it's the other way 'round. Usually the words "charming" and "cozy" are enough to turn me away from a potential book, but both apply here, in their best aspects.
