    I think the puzzle is poor, there is no way and no need for black to have moved the bishop in that way............. ridiculous!

    after 2.Bh6 black is not forced to take the bishop (2...Bxh6) in fact the black bishop in g7 is defended by the king and the rook

    is there something that I have missed?

    Yes. You missed the possibility of Qh8 even if Bg7 stayed there.

    I appreciated the more challenging puzzle today. The pattern was a bit more complex, took me about a minute to see how the Queen and Bishop got into play.
