Pamela’s Picks: The Flavia de Luce Mysteries by Alan Bradley

 

 

I’ve always enjoyed series books from my earliest days since my parents read me the Little Grey Rabbit books by Alison Uttley. Then as I grew up I read other series on my own and enjoyed detective series like Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden. Now I am enjoying a current mystery series – the Flavia de Luce mysteries by Alan Bradley. Flavia is a young motherless girl growing up in 1950s England in a run down mansion with her father and two sisters. Her great interest is chemistry and she often uses this a way to solve the mysteries that she comes across. What I enjoy most about this series is that Flavia actually grows up and matures unlike Nancy Drew who solved thousands of mysteries all at the same age.The next book in the series,  The Golden Tresses Of The Dead, will be published in January 2019 and I can’t wait to to read it!
