Happy New Year!
To set the tone for 2010, we're giving away the paperback version of one of 2009's hottest mystery debuts. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie is the first in a new series starring precocious preteen sleuth Flavia de Luce, who solves mysteries in 1950s England between bouts with her two older sisters.
In our review, BookPage contributor Arlene McKanic said that "Readers will want more, much more, of Flavia de Luce!" If you want to find out what all the fuss is about before the sequel, The Weed that Strings the Handman's Bag, comes out in March, leave a comment telling us about the best mystery YOU read last year. We'll pick a winner from among the entries received before 10 am CST on January 4. Good luck!
