Miss Phryne Fisher, we meet again. Book #14 in the Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries by Kerry Greenwood is the next instalment in the exciting adventures of sparkling, seductive, sharp-witted and sharp-tongued brunette living and detecting in Melbourne in the late 20s of the last century.

Queen of the Flowers is all about carnivals, circus, the colours, smells and sights of beach-side attractions and murky business behind the attractive and appealing facades.

A girl goes missing, a father being lost and found, a love triangle or two all make this novel a tantalising mix for the reader. Add to the mixture old and new lovers, a cruel grandfather and negligent mother, lots of yummy food and beautiful dresses and you get yourself a Miss Fisher Mystery.

A seductive creature with a great wardrobe, Private Detective Miss Phryne Fisher does everything and only things she likes. She lives her dreams and dreams for more. She is exciting and dashing, invincible and loveable. Phryne translates French poetry and rides horses, fires a gun and suffers through dress fittings. Oh, my, Phryne Fisher.

Now, back to the story at hand. If you are Phryne's TV series fan, you would have seen 'Queen of The Flowers' episode. But, my advice to you, read the book. The book is way better and more complex and entertaining than the TV episode.

This instalment of Miss Fisher's adventure has everything, from missing child to long-lost father, paedophiles and shifty grandfathers, betrayals, deaths and ... well, flowers.

Miss Fisher comes back to dazzle us with her talents in and out of boudoir. She is so good at everything she does nobody can blame her for 'bending corners'...

Honourable Miss Fisher is presiding once again.

Queen of the Flowers is available at Dymocks at $18.99 (paperback)
