  • A Red Herring Without Mustard: A Flavia de Luce Novel

    Award-winning author Alan Bradley returns with another beguiling novel starring the insidiously clever and unflappable 11-year-old sleuth Flavia de Luce. The precocious chemist with a passion for poisons uncovers a fresh slew of misdeeds in the hamlet of Bishop’s Lacey—mysteries involving a missing tot, a fortune-teller, and a corpse in Flavia’s own backyard.

    Kelli says: "An excellent addition to the series!"
    "Best One Yet..."
    Overall

    ...and I enjoyed the first two immensely. Jayne is the perfect narrator for Flavia, a character that could be ruined so easily if given the wrong voice. Entwhistle's narration gives depth and insight into this unique, precocious, engaging young girl.

    Agatha Raisin has never been one for forced holiday cheer, but her friendly little village of Carsely has always prided itself on its traditional Christmas festivities. But this year the bells will not be ringing out, as Mr. John Sunday, an officer with the Cotswold Health and Safety Board, has chosen Christmas as the time to crack down on safety hazards. But Mr. Sunday is soon found face down in the petunias, very much dead.

    A User says: "Busy body,There goes the bride"
    "Penelope is just as much fun"
    Overall

    Being a fan of "To the Manor Born", I feel Penelope has been cast perfectly as a narrator of some of the Agatha books. Yes, Donada Peters is wonderful, and I thoroughly enjoy all of those she has narrated--but I heartily disagree with those who have given Penelope's versions such low marks.

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

    Overall

    This is really wonderful. A timeless tale and Tim Curry does a marvelous job giving voice to all of the characters.

    It is the summer of 1950 and a series of inexplicable events has struck Buckshaw, the decaying English mansion that Flavia's family calls home. A dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Hours later, Flavia finds a man lying in the cucumber patch and watches him as he takes his dying breath. For Flavia, who is both appalled and delighted, life begins in earnest when murder comes to Buckshaw.

    Midi says: "Terrific story...spot-on narration"
    "Wonderful narrator"
    Overall

    The story has a few flaws, but Flavia is so engaging, and the story so well-told, it doesn't really matter.

    The Waverleys have always been a curious family, endowed with peculiar gifts that make them outsiders even in their hometown of Bascom, North Carolina. Even their garden has a reputation, famous for its feisty apple tree that bears prophetic fruit, and its edible flowers, imbued with special powers.

    Generations of Waverleys tended this garden. Their history was in the soil. But so were their futures.

    Together again in the house they grew up in, the Waverley sisters realize they must deal with their common legacy - if they are ever to feel at home in Bascom - or with each other.

    Joihelene says: "I so want to give it 5 stars...!!!!"
    "Should have read reviews more carefully"
    Overall

    I did not realize this was a romance novel--which I do not like. Tried to finish--the author has created some very imaginative sequences--but the silly "will she or won't she" (it's obvious that she will) overwhelmed the intriguing parts and finally turned me off...so I turned it off and deleted it from my iTunes library.
