Reminiscent of Nancy Drew and Sherlock Holmes, our heroine Flavia is both brilliant and endearing. The narrative is woven with so many details to build both the characters and the mystery. I genuinely thought a mystery involving an old stamp set in England would be musty and boring; instead, it felt like the reader is side by side with young Flavia as she is subjected to the torments of older sisters and the investigations she jumps into. Highly recommend for tweens to adults who enjoy a good detective tale.
