The Golden Tresses of the Dead Flavia de Luce #10A 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 Perhaps Alan Bradley has tired of his ingenue Flavia Those of us who fell in love with Flavia in the earlier books have come to expect her effervescent personality her deep curiosity and the childish awkwardness that comes from having a brain much advanced than her socialemotional skillsFlavia expressed her usual love of all things science but missing was the precociousness that made her so endearing in earlier books Frankly she's mature compared to cousin Undine who exhibits much of the vim and vigor Flavia is missing The mystery was underwhelming Plot points barely make sense and we get no real feel for any of the suspects or victims The appearance of the finger in the wedding cake the badly burned Reggie the boys from the Vicar's Vestryall appearing for no real purpose not red herrings not furthering the plot in any wayThe newly formed investigative agency of Dogger and Associates Flavia is an interesting way to continue a series now that Flavia is getting older And I enjoyed getting to see of Dogger But at still just 12 years old I would have expected info about Flavia's domestic life She clearly shares a house that she now owns with her sister Daffy who barely makes an appearance cousin Undine and Dogger but missing entirely is her Aunt What is happening with all the secret spy work alluded to in earlier novels Sister Feely is uickly married off and moved out of the story in the very beginning Undine gets a few brief moments to display how annoying she is but Flavia's domestic and familial situation is barely given a glance Even Gladys Flavia's beloved bike barely gets a chance to flyWhereas Flavia's ungainly charm may have carried previous entries in the series this one has neither decent plotting or the unbridled joy that we've come to expect in Flavia storyWant to see of my reviews or reviews from the Seattle Mystery Lovers Book Group wwwseattlemysteryloverscom
