In spring a young man’s fancy will turn to love, and the
Honorable Phillip Petrie is no exception. Daisy’s chum is totally smitten with
Miss Gloria Arbuckle, daughter of a millionaire Yank. But before the
enthusiastic suitor can pop the question, his beloved is abducted. As a
distraught Mr. Arbuckle begins assembling the ransom, Phillip enlists Daisy to
help him recover his missing sweetheart.
Strictly forbidden to contact Scotland Yard, Daisy must
resist the temptation to bring dashing Detective Inspector Alec Fletcher on to
the case. But as she closes in on the abductors’ rural hideaway, she begins to
suspect that Gloria isn’t the only fair damsel whose life hangs in the balance.
The fifth whodunit in Carola Dunn’s stylish cozy
mystery series set in 1923 England once again features British heiress and Town and County writer Daisy Dalrymple.
