Despite her recent heartaches and troubles Flavia is still her usual precocious chemistry loving self and she remains one of my very favorite fictional characters Life is full of changes and in this installment her sister Feely is getting married The festivities grinds to a halt when a severed finger is found in the wedding cake Feely faints dead away but of course Flavia is delighted at this turn of events She surreptitiously whisks the finger away and she and Dogger have a new case for their fledging business Arthur W Dogger Associates I'm delighted that she and Dogger have joined forces as they are my two favorite characters Dogger is able to gently channel Flavia's impulsivity and they make a fabulous team Honestly the mysteries interest me less than the interactions between the characters I did miss the sarcasm and wit between Flavia and her sisters but Flavia has met her match in her cousin Undine and I hope we will be seeing of her in future books There has been speculation that this is the final book in the series but I can see uite a future for Flavia and Dogger in their working relationship as private investigators The series is fun humorous and charming and I hope it continues for a long whileThe narrator of the audiobooks is excellent and even when reading the print copy the voice of Jayne Entwistle is in my head as I read She IS Flavia to me and if she hasn't won an Audie award she should Her narration enhances the storyI received a copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
