This is the 2nd book in the Flavia de Luce mystery series. I didn’t like it as much as the first one. I thought it was a bit slow and I had a hard time with the content. Explanation to follow.
It was a little slow. Like 3/4 of the book. I think because Flavia is meeting new characters and she had to give back story on something that happened 5 years ago in the village.
I had a hard time with the content. I don’t do well with hurt/dead children and animals. Ever. This book has a boy that died 5 years earlier under mysterious circumstances. Flavia figures out what happened. Nothing about her discovery made me feel better.
BUT. I’m going to continue reading the series. I adore Flavia and her family and their village. She named her bike Gladys. I named my car Inga. I think we’d get along.
