The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie

Bradley, Alan.  The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie.  n.p.: Anchor Canada, 2009.  Print.

Flavia de Luce is on the case after finding a man in her garden, just minutes from death.  Soon her father is arrested for the crime and Flavia knows that time is of the essence if she hopes to keep her father from swinging for murder.

Sassy and smart, Flavia de Luce is one of the best protagonists to come along in ages.  Bradley’s writing is smooth and elegant, with just enough flair to make it impossible to put down.  The world he creates is so realistic I can almost hear the creaking of the stairs as Flavia sneaks up them just one more time…  I can’t wait to pick up the next adventure!
