New Readalikes list -- The Flavia de Luce mysteries
If you're a fan of the Flavia de Luce mysteries by Alan Bradley, you're not alone!
This popular new series, which began in 2009 with The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, features a most original new sleuth -- 11-year-old Flavia de Luce, who is fascinated with chemistry, and in particular poisons. The books feature a 1950s British setting, and an unusual narrative voice.
