5 out of 5 Stars
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie is a mystery/novel written by . I usually chase after fictional novels for young adults, not mysteries, so this was a first! I really did enjoy this book though, so it was a pleasant surprise.
Flavia de Luce is a young girl who is obsessed with chemistry. Her secret passion is poison. She has two older sisters and lives with those two and her father in a big old estate. Everything was as normal as could be expected when Flavia finds herself eavesdropping in the middle of the night at the door of her father's study. The gardener/jack of all trades finds her and sends her back to bed. She wakes up a few hours later and strolls out to the garden. There she stumbles upon the mostly dead body of a man who she has seen before but cannot place. Flavia in there when the man breaths his last breath. From there Flavia is caught up in a whirlwind of murder, mystery, and the need to figure it out before the police.
