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 place for a wedding”, muses Flavia, “surrounded as it is by the legions of the dead, whose listening bones bear silent witness to every promise made at the altar.” Flavia is not your normal 12-year-old girl, and she'll have her first case when there's an unwelcome discovery in Ophelia’s wedding cake: a human finger.

The author keeps your attention caught from start to finish! I don’t know how a man can nail the emotions of a young girl but he does brilliantly! Flavia is such a great colorful character, she feels like a real person! Love way science and other facts are woven into the story. Truly a great read! Can’t wait for the next book!!
