This is the best, yet saddest, Flavia de Luce book to date. After the bombshell that was dropped at the end of the last book, the de Luce family is left to cope with it. Harriet is back at Buckshaw, and life at Buckshaw is turned upside down. A mysterious man with a warning for Flavia meets his death at the train station during Harriet's homecoming. What would a Flavia de Luce book be without a mysterious death?
There is a backdrop of grief and sorrrow throughout this book, yet Flavia still manages to come up with hare-brained schemes. I feel like Flavia showed more emotion during this book and she definitely grew up a little. I have always loved Flavia but this book made me love her even more. Flavia and readers learn some important things about Harriet and the rest of the du Luce family that will make for more interesting things to come. WIth all that was revealed in this book I couldn't put it down and never wanted it to end. Flavia de Luce has quickly become one of my favorite characters and this series is one of my favorites. I would highly recommend this book and the whole series, you will not be disappointed by Flavia de Luce.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publishers for letting me read this.
