“Every Flavia de Luce novel is a reason to celebrate.”—USA Today   ALAN BRADLEY, AUTHOR OF THE MOST AWARD-WINNING SERIES DEBUT OF ANY YEAR, RETURNS WITH ANOTHER IRRESISTIBLE FLAVIA DE LUCE NOVEL.   “[Alan] Bradley has created one of the most original, charming, devilishly creative and hilarious detectives of any age or any time.”—Bookreporter   It’s Christmastime, and Flavia de Luce—an eleven-year-old sleuth with a passion for chemistry—is tucked away in her laboratory, whipping up a concoction to ensnare Saint Nick. But she is soon distracted when a film crew arrives at Buckshaw, the de Luces’ decaying English estate, to shoot a movie starring the famed Phyllis Wyvern. Amid a raging blizzard, the entire village of Bishop’s Lacey gathers at Buckshaw to watch Wyvern perform, yet nobody is prepared for the evening’s shocking conclusion: a body found strangled to death with a length of film. But who among the assembled guests would stage such a chilling scene? As the storm worsens and the list of suspects grows, Flavia must ferret out a killer hidden in plain sight.BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Alan Bradley's Speaking from Among the Bones.   “[Flavia is] the most intrepid and charming adolescent chemist/detective/busybody in all of rural, post–World War II England.”—The Seattle Times   “Quirky and delightful . . . Flavia is a classic literary character who manages to appeal to both young and old readers equally.”—Wichita Falls Times Record News   “Bradley’s plot twists and turns delightfully.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram   NAMED ONE OF THE BEST MYSTERIES OF THE YEAR BY THE SEATTLE TIMES

4.0 I Am Half-Sick of Shadows ★★★★☆
I’ve been in a reading funk lately, trying to read some holiday themed books to put me in the Christmas spirit and finding myself left more Grinchy than jolly by the experience. So I decided to take a break from the holiday stories and get in some light entertainment in the form of my favorite littl...

5.0 Enjoyable start to finish!
I think I'd have to say this might be my favorite book of the series so far. And that is saying a lot, because time spent with Miss Flavia de Luce is always fun!
