Another Phryne Fisher book for you're reading pleasure. I mean, you have to like these books (or at least reading about them) if you're reading yet another one of my reviews about this series.
This one was a whole lot less mystery than many of the other ones. Don't get me wrong, I loved this book just as much as I love the busy and intense mystery filled ones. There wasn't really any steamy love bits in this one either. It was more about the day to day with a bit of a mystery thrown in.
Miss Fisher, her family, and her entourage are interesting and exciting all without the murders they work so hard to solve. I would read stories about them any day. How cool would they have been if they weren't just fictional characters. Putting my book lover problems aside, let's talk about this book:
This one is the 18th in the series. Miss Fisher takes her family off for a holiday, expecting a relaxing time with the sun and sand. Instead, they arrive to an empty house that should have had a butler and his wife prepared to welcome them on behalf of the owner of the home who arranged for Phryne to stay, and hints at buried treasure by the sea that seems to have everyones attention. I won't say more, but it was interesting.
This one was a little light on the mystery, it kind of let things just move along at their own pace without a whole lot of intense investigation which I didn't mind. Doesn't mean I knew how things were going to turn out before they happened, I was still happily surprised.
I am now, and forever will be, a reader of this lovely series of books! Still waiting for the next series to appear on Netflix though. I love the show just as much!
Recommendation: If you still haven't read any of these but you are reading this review, just go to your nearest library and pick one of these babies up! You can't go wrong!
