Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This lively mystery debut introduces the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple, who has taken a job to ensure her independence--an unusual step for the daughter of a viscount in 1922. Her first assignment for Town and Country takes her to Wentwater Court at Christmastime to write about the Wentwater family. Her visit is disrupted by unwelcome guest and--according to Lady Josephine--"utter cad" Lord Stephen Astwick. When Astwick's body is found floating under the ice in the estate's lake, attractive Scotland Yard Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher arrives on the scene. Daisy's photos of the victim, showing ax marks in the ice, suggest the death is murder and prompt Fletcher to enlist her as his stenographer during his investigations. With the entire family, from the earl to his grandchildren, under suspicion, Daisy takes on the role of liaison between landed and working classes. Astwick's indiscretions come to light and disclose more motives for murder at Wentwater Court. Inquisitive and sympathetic, Daisy identifies the murderer, suggests a solution pleasing to most of the family and secures the possibility of romance in her future.

Review

“A charming cozy featuring an intelligent, strong woman. A treat for Daisy's fans as well as those who enjoy Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs.” ―Booklist on Gone West

“Delicious…pleasantly reminiscent of the old fashioned English mysteries of a of a bygone era.” ―The Denver Post on Gunpowder Plot

“Dunn adds another winner to a long string of charming mysteries evocative of the period between the Great Wars.” ―Kirkus Reviews (starred) on Gone West

“Dunn and Daisy are at the top of their game in the entertaining, old-school story of drawing room manners mixed with murder.” ―Booklist on Sheer Folly

“Cunnning...appropriate historical detail and witty dialogue are the finishing touches on this engaging 1920s period piece.” ―Publishers Weekly on The Bloody Tower

“Dunn writes enchantingly of 1920s England: its period accoutrements of cars, cocktails, and the always delightful Daisy.” ―Mystery Scene on Sheer Folly
