Okay Second Book in Miss Fisher's Murder Series
Flying Too High: Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries - Kerry Greenwood

I think this book is firmly a three star read. We get introduced to Mr. Butler, though in the book series he has a wife. We have Phryne once again being led by her libido. At least she has good deductive reasoning though. Though I will say that whole last act was unnecessary with Phryne and I found myself bored senseless reading about her clothes and how much food she had eaten. She also makes an agreement with one of the culprits in this book that I found to be gross and offf-putting. I am still going to read the next book in the series though.

 

"Flying Too High" is the second book in the Phryne Fisher series. I fell in love with the tv show and then decided to start reading the books afterwards.

In the second book we have Phryne investigating two cases. One involving a kidnapped child and another a murder of a man who was detestable in every single way.

 

The two cases do not relate to one another at all so you are going to have to follow two plot lines.


I can honestly say I don't care that much for book Phryne at all. She is smart, but I find her ability to sleep with anyone and not care if they are in a relationship or not, not something to be admired.


Book Dot is a bit judgmental of Phryne, but loyal. I did like the parts of the book showing how Dot was so happy to have a room of her own with a door she can lock. 

 

We get reappearances of Detective-Inspector Jack Robinson who has learned to not underestimate Miss Fisher. And we also get Bert and Cec. 

 

The kidnapping case was okay, but I still feel dirty about the deal that Miss Fisher makes with one of the kidnappers. And we find out that Miss Fisher's grand scheme was unnecessary in the end so I was annoyed about reading it. It didn't make much sense honestly.


The murder case was a bit too much to swallow for me. I did like the characters in that one, it be nice to see what happens to Amelia and her brother Bill.


The writing was okay, but at times I found myself bored with the endless description of Miss Fisher's clothes, shoes, and hats. Also I don't really care what she eats for dinner or tea. There were long soliloquies about tea and I found myself yawning.

 

The setting of Australia does make this series appealing to me and I do like trying to get a sense of the country from this time period (pre-WWII).

 

The ending was a little odd though both cases are wrapped up rather neatly.

Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
Flying Too High: Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries - Kerry Greenwood

I did like this one, but also disliked the book version of Miss Fisher a lot. She sleeps with a client's fiancee and I don't know, it was weird to me. She seems bound by hormones for the most part. Miss Fisher (tv version) is smarter than this. 

 

I do love the reappearance of Cec and Burt and also how Miss Fisher solved her two cases. Still enjoyed the book and plan on reading book #3 soon.

 

I do want her and Jack to get together already. I love the tv show though so that's why I am leaning towards that. It was nice to get an appearance in the book by Robinson who definitely knows to not under estimate Miss Fisher.

This is good so far. It's fairly short which is why I put off finishing it until today. We now have Phryne moving into her home (221 B) and she meets Mr. and Mrs. B (in the tv show there is only Mr. B) and takes Dot with her. We all know that Phryne loves to fly and we get to read about her doing that. However, trying to see how the initial kidnapping we get ties into Miss Fisher taking a case where she tells the son to not murder the father (I maybe rolled my eyes at her straight forward manner).
