Review of 'A red herring without mustard' on 'Goodreads'

1 star

So disappointing! I was hoping this series would turn into my new guilty-pleasure reading, but after such a great first book and a so-so second book, this one is just terrible. The plot is ridiculous, Flavia is no longer interesting, and all the descriptive passages fail to set the stage, lead to clues, or provide any real benefit. Sigh.
