Such an enjoyable read! I read this in 2 days! The story lines and plot were just wonderful. Kerry Greenwood is such a master - or perhaps I should say mistress - of the genre. Although I enjoy the TV series, I still prefer the books. Ms. Greenwood's writing is just so astonishingly good. The language at once serves the story, the time period and the characters themselves without ever becoming fussy, inaccessible, unnecessary, dull, dry or banal. Her writing is simply pitch-perfect. She really is a mistress of the craft and the genre. As someone who hopes to write a cozy mystery myself some day, I actually study these books from a writer's perspective to learn about plot and pacing, how to include historical detail and description without overburdening the reader, how to write interesting, unique multiple characters without letting them become the focus or run away with the book, how to manage difficult subjects while still maintaining an overall "cozy" feel and how to keep language interesting and in service to the work (and the characters) without writing down to the reader.

And the pacing! That's especially tricky in a cozy. But it's always just right.

Finally I have to say I really enjoy the plot of this one. I enjoy them all but this one was especially fun.

I love the Aussie television series based upon these books. So, after the last season ended, I decided to read the books upon which the series is based. After all, the television series is superb. Could the books be any less? The third book in the series of cozy mysteries confirms that my faith was not misplaced. They just keep getting better, as the characters develop and continue to engage the reader.

Set in 1920s Melbourne, Australia, this series of cozy mysteries features the unflappable flapper, the one, the only, the Hon. Phryne (rhymes with briny) Fisher. A thoroughly modern Millie, Phryne is wealthy, has a mind of her own, and is a bit of a thrill seeker. Fearless, glamorous, and fiercely intelligent, she acts as a private investigator, often besting the police at their own game. She does it all with daring and panache.

Here, she investigates a murder in which an old woman is murdered while traveling on a train. Unfortunately for the murderer, Phryne just happened to be on that very train. Engaged by the daughter of the deceased to find the murderer, Phryne does her best, which is more than enough to bring the killer to justice.

I definitely enjoyed the book, and I'm loving the books as much as I love the television series. Phryne Fisher is definitely a character that makes the reader look forward to the next book. Fans of cozy mysteries will most definitely enjoy this series. They are a quick, fun read.

Fun read ! Nancy Drew Mysteries on steroids ! If you were a fan of Nancy Drew when you were a child, and you enjoy Phryne Fisher Mysteries on PBS, you'll get hooked on these delightful, fast reading "Nancy Drew" Phryne mystery books for grownups ! Pure escapism....The Roaring Twenties setting is delightful.

Phryne is an independent, daring, heroine who carries a gun (similar to Nancy Drew), not afraid to bend the rules and always has a temporary lover. The books are are not quite the same as the TV series, to which I am addicted to, but the pace and stories are just as much fun. You will find Bert, Cecil, Dot (introduced in Cocaine Blues”) and others. Inspector Robinson is older, and not potential love material, and not as endearing as depicted in the TV series. Each book I’ve read, the fascinating action immediately grabs your attention before the end of the 2nd page. Great summer reading, or when you need a break from more serious reading pursuits.

So far, I have read 3 of the series, and "Murder on the Ballart Train" is my favorite to date (the first one I read, Cocaine Blues, for me, spent too much time on describing her clothes in detail.) In the "Murder on the Ballarat Train" you will be introduced to the orphan,"Jane", an amnesia child with her story of abuse, neglect and worse. In the 3 books I've read, besides the murder mystery, there has been other themes, either social or political in nature which sometimes introduces characters that will become familiar in future stories.

I highly recommend "Raisins and Almonds". Ms Greenwood's stories certainly, remind me of the delightful hours I spent reading "Nancy Drew" mysteries when I was young (however I do not recommend them to impressionable youngsters 17 yrs old or younger, primarily for Ms Fisher's casual promiscuous love choices - perhaps that just reflects my fuddy-duddy age during the 40's, 50's era.)

Do not expect a Dorothy Sayers or J.D. James mystery. Kerry Greenwood's, Phryne Fisher is a short fun romp of escapism, and enhances the colorful PBS series.
