Waiting On Wednesday (28)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that
spotlights upcoming releases that I’m really
looking forward to. Waiting On Wednesday
is the creation of Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'dThrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew’d
A Flavia de Luce Mystery #8
Alan Bradley
September 2016
Mystery, historical, British

From the publisher—

In spite of being ejected from Miss Bodycote’s Female Academy in Canada, twelve-year-old Flavia de Luce is excited to be sailing home to England. But instead of a joyous homecoming, she is greeted on the docks with unfortunate news: Her father has fallen ill, and a hospital visit will have to wait while he rests. But with Flavia’s blasted sisters and insufferable cousin underfoot, Buckshaw now seems both too empty—and not empty enough. Only too eager to run an errand for the vicar’s wife, Flavia hops on her trusty bicycle, Gladys, to deliver a message to a reclusive wood-carver. Finding the front door ajar, Flavia enters and stumbles upon the poor man’s body hanging upside down on the back of his bedroom door. The only living creature in the house is a feline that shows little interest in the disturbing scene. Curiosity may not kill this cat, but Flavia is energized at the prospect of a new investigation. It’s amazing what the discovery of a corpse can do for one’s spirits. But what awaits Flavia will shake her to the very core.

Why am I waiting so eagerly? It’s Flavia. If you’ve never made her acquaintance, you need to start with the first book RIGHT NOW 😉

  1. I bet I can’t say that title three times fast. Great pick to look forward to. I’m looking forward to quite a few coming out within the next few months. One is Home by Harlan Coben. It is number 11 of the Myron Bolitar series. I had given up on any more from this series, so now I’m thrilled! 🙂
