Book Review: The Flavia deLuce Novels
These delightful reads, part Matilda, part Agatha Christie, with a little I Capture the Castle thrown in, follow the adventures of precocious 11-year old sleuth Flavia deLuce on her adventures in and around her family's decaying estate of Buckshaw near the town of Bishop's Lacey, somewhere in 1950's England.
I loved all of these books for their crisp language, engaging characters and interesting turns of plot. Each one kept me interested till the very end, and only in a few cases was I able to completely put the clues together.
