Product Description

Review

Cunning ... appropriate historical detail and witty dialogue are the finishing touches on this engaging 1920s period piece. (Publishers Weekly)

As always, Dunn evokes the life and times of 1920s England while providing a plot that is a cut above the average British cosy. This will delight readers who love country-house mysteries. (Booklist)

For fans of Dorothy L. Sayers' novels. (Library Journal) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This is a very fine addition to the series. Who knows how accurate the descriptions of time and place are, but they're evocative. Dunn has always had a nice - if cliched - eye for character. One word of advice though - she should give up on the Irish characters. Not for the first time the words placed in the mouth of the one here are beyond caricature.

A very novel background with a complex home dynamic to the deceased and his family. I think one of the great strengths to this book was the demonstration of how a great tragedy can affect people, and how some people can rise to the occasion and grow as personalities. The changes wrought on the family is excellently handled with Carola Dunn's usual light touch, and as always the interactions between her characters are delightful, and draw the reader in.

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...

When i started this book it I felt as though I had missed a book in th sequence as it seemed as though I had missed something from the previous book. Once half way through it picked up and returned to form. It's as though there is a ghost writer fir this book initially!

The book was a very good read as are all the Daisy Dalrymple Mysteries. I love the story line eg how the mystery unfolds, as well as seeing how the relationship between Daisy and her husband The Chief Inspector develops. Cannot wait to read the next one in the series. Well done Amazon for bring the series to Kindle at very reasonable prices.

I loved this book, as I did the other 19. The characters are well written and enjoyable. The story flows well, and the authors descriptive powers are amazing. You can lose yourself in the story and feel as if you are standing right beside the characters. LOVE the Daisy Dalrymple books.

My husband bought me several of these books as a deal for christmas, thinking i would enjoy them. I've proceeded to collect them all & enjoyed each & everyone of them. They are my favourite type of book, intriguing, historically interesting, exciting at times with some humour. Also I've enjoyed the fact that i like the main characters Really well worth a read. Trouble is this is the last one I haven't read so now feel disappointed. Will be watching for any further ones (The first I read were out of orded but that was fine too, though it did mean I knew some future things would happen but didn't spoil the books for me)

I've been reading these for a while now, and I still look forward to getting a new one. It's great that the author manages to keep these fresh after 20 books, but the plots remain interesting and the storylines are well written. As always, this book can read as a stand-alone, but it's has been fun to watch the character development throughout the series. Fun and frothy, a nice cosy mystery that should be enjoyed with a deckchair and a glass of pimms!
