    Review quote
    "Australia, 1928. Phryne Fisher, the flamboyant flapper and amateur sleuth, has been chosen to be Queen of the Flowers for this year's Flower Parade. But, as loyal readers of this long-running series know, Phryne can't seem to do anything without landing herself in the midst of a mystery...This is a consistently strong series that shows no signs of running out of steam." --"Booklist "of "Queen of the Flowers" "Crime strikes close to home in this latest installment of Greenwood's charming series ("The Castlemaine Murders", etc.) featuring 1920s Aussie amateur sleuth, Phryne Fisher...The engaging cast of familiar supporting characters--including Phryne's maid, Dot, and her Chinese lover, Lin Chung--will delight longtime fans, but newcomers who like their crime on the lighter side can jump in without any trouble." -"Publishers Weekly" of "Queen of the Flowers"
