The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie
Unabridged - 8 compact discs
Alan Bradley's The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie which introduced a new amateur sleuth the eleven-year-old Flavia de Luce, an aspiring chemist with a passion for poison and a little revenge.
If you've never read any books in this series this is a great opportunity to start at the beginning with the very first title. Enter for a chance to escape into Flavia's world.
Set in 1950's England in the de Luce's decaying family Manor, Buckshaw, a dead snipe appears on the doorstep and a late night visitor soon becomes a body in the cucumber patch. Flavia is left to piece it all together by outwitting the adults, picking locks, and applying her scary knowledge of chemistry.
This book is a combination of Alexander McCall Smith and the Addams Family. A quick read, not always plausible but refreshingly snide. Perfect for the cozy reader that likes their books a little dark. Young adults would eat this up.

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie (2009), The Weed That Strings the Hangman’s Bag (2010),
