spoiler do not read if you haven't read.
Not sure how to feel. Thought it was well done, as always, and understand the thinking that maybe a change of venue was needed, but a whole genre jump. There is already a Harrier the spy in childrens lit. , do we need another? I'll have to read the next one before I pass judgement ( )

The sixth outing in the Flavia de Luce cosy crime series takes a different tack as, although a murder does occur early on in the proceedings, Flavia is more concerned with the emotional fallout of her mother Harriet's 'return' to Buckshaw. I won't say a lot about the story as just about anything is a spoiler, but we do learn finally that Flavia's odd childhood has had a hidden agenda all along, and certain things said in an earlier book are now explained.

I enjoyed most of the book immensely and it was building up to a 5 star rating, but the hasty denouement in the church somewhat detracted from things. I had felt sure that Flavia, invited to a picnic after the funeral by someone she eventually realises is the murderer, was about to face a tense confrontation where her life hung in the balance, but the police suddenly intervened and everything was resolved somewhat disappointingly. However, the very end does leave an interesting glimpse of the future, with everything turned upside down including Flavia's relationship with her family. ( )

No, I'm sorry, I tried. Admittedly, I read four of the ten books in the series out of order, but Flavia (Flave-ia) didn't take long to change from a smart and quirky Scout Finch style narrator into an obnoxious enfant terrible of Little Britain. And oh dear, there's a story arc too, about a secret society - I hate story arcs!

This instalment is about the repatriation and burial of Flavia's mother, who died on a mountain in the Himalayas when Flavia was a baby, but the characters are so rigid and 'stiff upper lip' that I wasn't even affected by the family's grief. Lots of welling eyes and hyperbolic tributes to the late great Harriet - Winston Churchill tells Flavia that 'she was England', which made me gag - and Flavia herself decides to 'resurrect' her ten years dead mother's corpse with vitamin B. Okay, sweetie.

I wish whatever magic the second book had could have lasted, but I couldn't care less about the Nide and Flavia's future role in saving England. If she ever hits twelve, I won't be at the party, I'm afraid. ( )

This is really more like a 41/2 star read, but I'll round down because I have high hopes that a future Flavia de Luce adventure will rate the 5th star. This was pretty close though, in this pivotal, transformative novel
In this increasingly intriguing series. One of my biggest pet peeves of the story is even being resolved! Anyway, this mystery follows hard on the heels of the previous book, which dropped a major bombshell just at the end. Flavia's long-lost mother has returned to Buckshaw, and everything in Flavia's world is in an uproar. Secrets never even hinted at before are explosively revealed, and deep political and international intrigue are discovered. All this in the midst of great emotional turmoil and the coming of age of a young girl who is realizing she is growing up, whether she likes it or not. Flavia's world has changed dramatically, and I look forward to seeing how she copes with it. ( )

One of my favorites--I was hooked after "Sweetness...", but enjoyed "the weed...," "A Red Herring ..," "I Am Half-Sick..," and "speaking..." Just as much. ( )
