A finger in a wedding cake is only the beginning in this deliciously shocking mystery featuring Flavia de Luce the world's greatest adolescent British chemistbusybodysleuth The Seattle Times Although it is autumn in the small English town of Bishop's Lacey the chapel is decked with exotic flowers Yes Flavia de Luce's sister Ophelia is at last getting hitched like a mule to a wagon A church is a wonderful Our little girl is growing up and frankly I'm glad to see it Flavia is still only 12 years old but life hasn't been kind to her so this is the book where she is allowed to grieve for all the heartaches in her young life Add to that the marriage of her sister Ophelia and Flavia needed this investigation to get her through some tough times Arthur W Dogger Associates Discreet Investigations tells us all we need to know about where this book is headed Dogger has always been one of my favorite characters in this series but he seemed too often to be held down by his wartime troubles to ever be of prime use as a major character Luckily Alan Bradley rehabilitated Dogger just enough to make him the perfect partner in investigations with Flavia Dogger helps to keep things on of an adult footing but his intimate knowledge of Flavia's personality allows him to gently guide her along a reasonable path of searching for and interpreting the clues they find They make a brilliant pairMy reason for a four star rating instead of five stars is that I found myself slightly confused about some of the clues and information uncovered by Dogger and Flavia I'm not 100% sure I uite got the solution and have a feeling I might need to read the book again I did go back over several sections while I was reading but that didn't feel like it helped much There seems to be information that this was always intended to be a ten book series and with this book being the tenth it will mark the end of our time with Flavia and the others I have to say the ending did not give me the feeling at all that the series was wrapping up Instead it feels as if Flavia and Dogger have now established their working detecting relationship and they are set to carry on for a good long while I certainly would love to see that happenThank you to NetGalley and Delacorte Press for an eGalley of this novel
