The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by: Alan Bradley
After being so immersed in the Outlander series this book was a nice light read. One reason I enjoyed this book was because a conversation with the author was included. I have to say when I start a new book I usually turn to the back of the book and read about the author, but if you can believe it I don't read the last page of the book. I like to kind of get a sense of the person who is writing. Alan Bradley has had a successful career and should be an inspiration to all, not just for his successes but because he is 70 years old and has found a fresh young character to bring to life for our enjoyment.
I came away from this book feeling like I had read about a budding Miss Marple. Mr. Bradley draws you into the life of Flavia de Luce and her family and fortunately for us there are more books about this delightful girl to come.
