Another wonderful Flavia de Luce mystery. This time she finds a body (as usual) on her first day back from Canada and her last murder adventure. It's the Christmas season; her father is in the hospital with pneumonia so she can't see him and her sisters are ignoring her in spite of her long absence. So things are about normal. She then jumps into another murder investigation (her favorite thing) which helps her cope with this difficult time. Wonderful, funny and rather difficult to figure out, as are all these books. Love them!
The Nightingale by Kristin Hanna
This is an incredible book. It is the story of two sisters, living in France during WW II, who work with the underground. I'm sure the events these sisters endured actually happened to many and she brings that reality to life very effectively. I never realized how much the French suffered during that war. Very moving.
