This review is from: Gone West (Daisy Dalrymple Mystery 20) (Kindle Edition)
Some reviewers of the Mummy porn "grey" series have noted that a Kindle is the best medium to read guilty pleasures. The Daisy Dalrymple series fits the bill here, not as mummy porn-perish the thought, but in the world of (allegedly) golden age country house mysteries. This series makes the average "cosy" seem "hard-boiled"! They are simply preposterous, cliche ridden, with plot holes you could drive your taximeter cabriolet through and still leave room for an army of rustic "ooh-aring" forelock tugging lower orders on each side...however, having taken the first one cheap on kindle, I became hooked and via library and charity shop have read more than half of the series and will hunt down the rest (although not at kindle full price) to guiltily enjoy the exploits of the Hon. Daisy. I can't explain the appeal, I just like them. If this helps to intrigue you, the first three in the series were available on kindle recently as an omnibus quite cheaply. Go on, on kindle no-one can see that it's not some snooty booker literary author that you have to pretend to like...
