A Red Herring Without Mustard

How about a mystery Flower?

A Red Herring Without Mustard could be a  vintage cookbook or a chef''s memoir about her journey to culinary excellence despite her bad choices in men and her Mum's appalling kitchen skills, but it isn't!! Yea! It's the new Flavia de Luce mystery and you know what that means...Joy, satisfaction and then the tears of parting for twelve months until the next new Flavia.

Our mini Miss Marple does it again. The mystery is clever, the suspects are intriguing, the settings are Golden Age of Hollywood perfection and the de Luce family and Bishop's Lacey citizens are eccentric and wonderful!

I don't need to bother you with plot details and more exclamation points. If you already know Flavia let me tell you that the third time's the charm, as was the first and second time. If you haven't been formally introduced yet what are you waiting for? Jump in and join the party.
