Raisins and Almonds by Kerry Greenwood

Yes, I know. Another Phryne Fisher mystery.

This one was focused on saving a bookshop owner from being hanged for a murder she didn't commit. Phryne has a new lover and there is a lot of romance in this one but, there was also a look into the Jewish community that I found quite interesting. 

This was definitely a mystery that keeps you guessing. I had no idea whodunit by the end and I was a little surprised when it was finally solved, and in such a simple type of way. There was misdirection, stories upon stories, everything was shrouded in mystery but of course, Miss Fisher figured it out. 

You know if you've been reading my blog for any amount of time how much I love these books, and this one is a prime example of why. Some I love more than others, and this was one of them!

Recommendation: If you still don't know the greatness that is Miss Phryne Fisher (or haven't even seen the show on Netflix yet) then this is as good a place to start as any!
