St. Kildas streets hang with fairy lights. Tea dances, tango competitions, lifesaving demonstrations, lantern shows, and picnics on the beach are all part of the towns first Flower Parade. And who should be Queen of the Flowers but the Honourable Phryne Fisher? It seems that the lovely Phryne has nothing to do but buy dresses, drink cocktails, and dine in lavish restaurants. Unfortunately, disappearances during this joyous festival aren?t limited to the magic shows. One of Phryne?s flower maidens has simply vanished. And so, Phryne is off to investigate aided by Bert and Cec and her trusty little Beretta. When her darling adopted daughter Ruth goes missing, Phryne is determined that nothing will stand in the way of her investigation. Phryne must confront elephants, brothel-life, and perhaps worst of all an old lover in an effort to save Ruth and her flower maiden before it is too late. Queen of the Flowers is the fourteenth book in the Phryne Fisher series, with no sign of Ms. Fisher hanging up her pearl-handled pistol yet.

(Book 14 in the Phryne Fisher series)

This series about Phryne Fisher is interesting and enjoyable, and some books are better than others. This book was especially fun, as it explored both a current mystery and a past one, and solved them both most satisfactorily. Phryne Fisher is a fascinating and resourceful character, and she has connections with all sorts of other people when she needs help. Like all series, this series is most enjoyable when the books are read in order.
