With more than a dash of glamour and serious helpings of style, the witty and courageous Phryne Fisher returns. In 1928 St Kilda's streets hang with fairy lights. Magic shows, marionettes, tea dances, tango competitions, life-saving demonstrations, lantern shows, and picnics on the beach are all part of the Flower Parade. And who else should be chosen to be Queen of the Flowers but the gorgeous, charming and terribly fashionable Hon Phryne Fisher? Phryne needs a new dress and a swimming costume but she also needs a lot of courage to confront her problems: a missing daughter, the return of an old lover, and a young woman found drowned at the beach at Elwood.

Listener Opinions

    " Another fun chapter in the life of a rich Australian private investigator in 1928 Australia. Phryne Fisher is a good hearted larger than life heroine who loves sex, good food and wine, and solves crimes. A slim volume read in just one day. I read her books when I want simple relaxation and enjoyment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila Beaumont | 2/18/2014

    " Loved it, as I have all the entries in this enchanting series of lighthearted mysteries set in 1920s Australia. A thrilling story, plenty of humor, and a cast of lively characters, especially our indomitable heroine, Phryne. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita | 2/17/2014

    " Could be my favourite of the Phryne Fisher series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenne | 2/15/2014

    " This was fun, but I kind of wanted something different to happen for a change. Also, I wanted more description of the costume for the Queen of the Flowers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 2/6/2014

    " Fun book (the whole Phryne Fisher series) about a 1928 Austrailan woman who solves mysteries while enjoying her liberated lifestyle. Witty and colorful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louise | 1/24/2014

    " There is also something special in her books. I think the elephants were quite a good touch. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn Turner | 1/19/2014

    " Phryne Fisher is always a delicious treat - oh to have a life as glamorous and adventurous a life! These novels are not a challenging red but perfect as an escapist read in summer, by the fire or at times when life's stresses seem overwhelming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meg Benjamin | 1/17/2014

    " Typical Phrynne. Quirky, atmospheric, and ultimately charming. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rindy Beridon | 12/30/2013

    " Another winner that I finished just before the holidays. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele bookloverforever | 12/29/2013

    " so far, this is the my favorite of this series. One of Phryne's adopted daughters searches for and finds her father but not until Phryne finds and rescues a sexually abused teenager, an old lover and solves the mystery of "who done it". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie_ian_curtis | 12/26/2013

    " the problem with Phryne is i read the whole thing in one sitting! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nina | 12/17/2013

    " I have loved all the Phryne Fisher books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shomeret | 12/8/2013

    " This is the Phryne Fisher I'd been led to expect. I didn't find her in Ruddy Gore, the first Phryne Fisher novel that I read, but she's far more developed in Queen of the Flowers. The case and the milieu were not especially interesting, but the characterization in general was improved. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nepeta | 11/30/2013

    " I love Phryne Fisher - real girl's own adventure stories "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 CatBookMom | 8/15/2013

    " I'm not sure why, but this just didn't keep my interest as so many of the others in the series have done. I started over once and even back-tracked after a while. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 6/22/2013

    " Kerry Greenwood has created a wonderful character with Phryne Fisher. She is a smart, compassionate, brave, loyal, & stylish modern woman. This series is a pleasure to read for the mysteries and the interesting cast of characters. Readers get an entertaining glimpse into 1920s Melbourne, Australia. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 6/18/2013

    " I found it totally odd that one of Phryne's crew would go missing and there wouldn't be a bit more...anxiety? But nope! Everyone sleeps soundly (seriously, Miss Greenwood makes a point of specifying this) and Phryne goes on with her usual community tasks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liza | 4/28/2013

    " Even after reading a dozen of Greenwood's Phryne Fisher books I still think she's going strong. Phryne is one of those rare mystery characters that you are sure must live somewhere in this reality; it's too impossible to write a character like that otherwise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Swanbender2001 | 4/5/2013

    " I found this story to be a bit scattered. It still had the great Phryne Fisher quality to it but I was a bit more critical about my feelings toward the structure of this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Neil Plakcy | 2/1/2013

    " These books are like candy -- you just keep snarfing them up! Greenwood has a way of making serious themes (in this one, there's some child abuse) palatable because the bad guys get their due. And it's just fascinating to see what Australia was like at the time. Great characters, clever plotting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 1/28/2013

    " Just okay- basically filler in my reading, Main character reminds me of one of my friends, I will let you guess. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marybeth | 12/28/2012

    " I have read several of the Phryne Fisher "mysteries" which are delightful, light reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Francisco | 11/11/2012

    " The circus is in town and Phryne is preparing for the parade as the Queen of Flowers. But there is the mystery of missing flower pricess Rose Weston and then Ruth goes missing after trying to find her father. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alice | 8/11/2012

    " Very fun. Phryne is a terrific character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Miss | 5/4/2012

    " A little 1920's Melbourne escapism. I love the decadence of those times but sometimes the character of Phryne is getting on my nerves. How could she just sit there so calmly when her daughter was kidnapped? Oh but of course, she's the Hon Phyrne Fisher and she always get them in the end. *sheesh* "
