The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie

If you’re looking for some entertaining reading, I recommend The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. It’s about an eleven-year-old girl who sets out to solve a murder that’s taken place in the garden of her family’s estate, in 1950s rural England. This brilliant, spunky girl is always a few steps ahead of the police.

I love hearing about people accomplishing new things when they’re “no spring chicken,” and that’s the case with 70-year-old Canadian author Alan Bradley — this is his first novel! What’s more, he set it in England, a place he had never visited until he won the Debut Dagger award for an early draft of this book, and the Crime Writers’ Association invited him over to receive his award.
