This pre-numbered label recently surfaced from nowhere and I figured I should lose it before it vanished again.

Using this for a book I got to share with Zippy because I think she will relate well to the main character. I first read this book in 2015 and this was my review at the time

A delightful book with a delightful heroine. This one had been on the TBR pile since Christmas and might have stayed there a while longer except that a friend at work said she was reading it and found it "delightful" (pretty much her highest rating). I had already read A Red Herring Without Mustard and enjoyed it, so I dived into this one with both feet. I remembered loving Flavia and that she had an absentee father, but had forgotten the rest of the characters. I fell instantly in love with Dodger and developed a real fondness for Inspector Hewitt, one of the few people in Bishop's Lacey who seems to understand how remarkable Flavia is. I thought the mystery was quite well-crafted and the adventurous aspects of it were fun also. I learned a bit more about stamp collecting and magic and chemistry and had a fun time doing it. Looking forward to reading the other books in the series.

My friend and fellow BC'er brought this book to me today, socially distanced style drop off. 😷 I look forward to reading it.
