Product Description

Review

Daisy and her husband spring into action, surrounded by historical armaments, secret rooms, hidden treasure, and family secrets. For fans of British cozies and Dorothy Sayer's novels, this is a very inviting situation. (Library Journal)

Replete with well-drawn characters, snappy dialogue and interesting plot twists...Easily the best entry in a charming series. (Booklist)

Book Description

The 11th novel in the charming Daisy Dalrymple series of 1920's country house murder mysteries.

This is the first Daisy Dalrymple book I have read but it won't be the last. Daisy and family including her snobby mother spend Christmas at Brockdene, a Cornish estate because she is writing an article on the holdings. Set in the1920s the period is well conveyed as are the characters. The children are particularly well portrayed. The plot has plenty of twists and the novel moves at a good pace

In this, the eleventh Daisy Dalrymple mystery, Daisy visits Brockdene with her mother for a family Christmas. As ever, Carola Dunn skilfully evokes the England of the 1920s and extracts maximum fun from the process. The murder mystery is a bit unconvincing but it is adequate to carry forward the plot and the characterisation is, as ever, lively and engrossing. An enjoyable, lightweight read.

Daisy continues to dig up murder wherever, and with whoever she travels with. The series continues but reading this as your introduction to Daisy would stimulate interest in what had gone before. Cornwall, Christmas and two branches of a noble family provide the plot that rattles merrily along. The characters are also enjoyable.

Finished reading this book last night and really enjoyed it. The previous two Daisy's were not to the usual standard I'd got used to, so I am really glad that Daisy's back where she belongs.

This story is set during the festive period in a house where Daisy and Alec are staying with Daisy's mother, nephew and step daughter. The way this book is written makes it very atmospheric. It is easy to read with a wide rage of interesting characters/suspects and holds your attention right until the last page.

Would recommend.

I love a good murder mystery and I really tried to get into this book. The only person who could prove a marriage took place so that someone could inherit a title has been killed and Daisy Fletcher's (not Dalrymple) husband is the detective. I was looking to an old fashioned who-dunnit, but I found it boring (not 'fast paced' as another reviewer did). In fact nothing seemed to be happening once the murder took place. I didn't finish it and it's off to the charity shop.

i like the character of Daisy, her policeman husband and his colleagues, and most especially her say-what-she-feels mother. This had an atmospheric setting and an interesting back story but overall it wasn't great, I've read much better in this series. At times I found it hard to distinguish members of the family and the ending is especially weak with it being completely out of character of the culprit and the motive very weak.

Not the best but I would read others in the series

If you want some light escapism this is the book for you. Set in the 20s Daisy, her husband and extended family investigate a murder in deepest Cornwall. Ms Dunn does the period very well and her writing style is light and frothy so this is an ideal way to pass a few hours.
