    " I like old-fashioned whodunits and felt a bit cheated on this one. The characters annoyed me for the most part and the writing couldn't keep my ADD from getting the best of me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cerealflakes | 2/15/2014

    " I enjoyed this mystery. It was so British and full of quirky British characters who each had their own funny behaviors. A comedy of manners combined with a murder mystery. A good, easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meg | 2/6/2014

    " A blend of high society witicisms and murder...very enjoyable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 1/26/2014

    " This great crime book reads like a play. In fact, I would love to see it as a play. Much would depend on the casting of this Randall character who I would love to have around to humorously flay those around me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary Ward | 1/17/2014

    " This mystery "who-dunnit" was not as good as Heyer's romantic novels. I kept expecting that some of the characters would emerge as sympathetic, but ultimately none of them were at all likeable. There was no protagonist to root for! Furthermore, the conversation and plot twists were tedious, even unbearable at times. Arriving at last at the end, I felt I'd wasted my time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gretchen | 1/15/2014

    " This was my first foray into Heyer, and I had a bit of trouble keeping so many Mrs., Miss, and Mr. Matthews straight, and I think that's perhaps why I am only giving it three stars. A fun and enjoyable read absolutely, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ange | 1/14/2014

    " Actually I enjoyed this one more than the last one. Kinda fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo Anne | 12/24/2013

    " I love Heyers mysteries. As I read, I feel as if I am in the country house with the characters. Her mysteries are fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 11/20/2013

    " Very interesting little mystery; I totally did not expect the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lara | 11/17/2013

    " A friend gave me this book as a present. It was a very light murder mystery. It was good but I would have liked more character development. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn Stewart | 10/21/2013

    " I thought this book was a wonderful, comedic, mystery! The characters were so cliche as to be hilarious! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 7/4/2013

    " Delightful mystery. Even more delightful surprise romance! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lady Susan | 8/27/2012

    " I tend to think that mysteries are much more charming when set in the English country side. That the Master of the Manor might have died because the "duck was a touch gamey" is not something you come across in the American equivalents. Again, a good vacation read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 The Twins | 8/20/2012

    " Good old fashion crime with a couple of twists but a little bit slow. On the other hand it was your good old fashion style crime where everything is prim and proper and you should expect a wordy novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peregrina651 | 8/15/2012

    " This is the first Georgette Heyer mystery that I've read/listened to. It's not great but isn't terrible either. If Audible had more available I might even get those to read as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leta | 4/28/2012

    " It's not often that the least likable character is the one that I look forward to seeing more of, but that was the case here. A thoroughly enjoyable book about people who would be pretty tiresome in real life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie G | 2/10/2012

    " I am really enjoying Georgette Heyer - and this, the first mystery I read, was just as funny and engaging as her other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 refgoddess | 2/2/2012

    " Following after Death in the Stocks, Hemingway is no longer Hanasyde's flunky, which is actually where I prefer him. Not very sprightly, and the characters are not very likable. Sadly, I remembered half-way through that I had read it before, and after that it was dull, too. Not one of her best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kay | 9/12/2011

    " This is another one of my top favorites of Heyer's mysteries. Full of over the top characters, great dialog, and - of course! - a romance. "

    " Enjoyed this, though a bit slow to start with, I didn't guess 'whodunnit' though I had an inkling but couldn't figure how or why "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 3/18/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 2/6/2011

    " Another fun read by Georgette Heyer. It took me a while to sort out the characters, but I enjoy her clever writing, dialogue, and characterizations. Her strength, I think, lies with them, and not with her plots, which tend to stretch credibility. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Watoosa | 1/13/2011

    " This was so much fun. Loved the character of Randall! Glad I read it AFTER Death in the Stocks. I can't stop reading Heyer's mysteries, notable for a non-mystery fan such as myself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 12/4/2010

    " This was the second Georgette Heyer book I read this week. While it was enjoyable, it was a LOT like the first one, so apparently they're a little formulaic. Still, a good way to pass the time.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 9/9/2010

    " I always associated Georgette Heyer with Regency romances. Her mysteries are little gems of 30s to 50s England. I particularly enjoyed this one, and not just because I was proud of figuring out the culprit so soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victoria | 7/9/2010

    " I love the verbal battles in this one!! They mystery is well done, too. But I truely laughed out loud at this one, but it is English humour, so beware if you aren't used to it. It may only seem odd. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 7/7/2010

    " An intriguing murder mystery by Heyer, well written as always, w/ her enjoyable English setting & style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 6/23/2010

    " As dated as they are, I enjoy Georgette Heyer's mysteries. This one was a surprise, since I did figure out "whodunnit". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 4/21/2010

    " Reading my first Georgette Heyer, I most of all enjoyed the well drawn character of Randall Matthews, heir to the fortune at the Poplars. He was worth the read. "
