MISTRESS OF THE ART OF DEATH by Ariana Franklin
I like this book so much, I've recommended it to many people. Everyone has really really liked it, but one, who said it was okay. I read this book during the summer and I will admit that I wanted to know who the killer was so badly, I put a movie in for my kids, got them a treat, told them to just watch the movie and enjoy their food, all so I could read and find out who-dun-it. I do not usually do that type of thing at all!!
I was thrilled when I found out the book was the first of a series. The fourth book just came out in paperback recently. I've enjoyed the other books in this series as well. The second one is probably my least favorite, though I still really liked it, and I have not yet read the fourth. I'm starting this week, which inspired me to write this blog post. Here is a list of the other books in the series so far. (The second book happens within a year of the first book. The third and fourth books happen several years after their predecessor.)
