Publisher Description

This first installment of a delightful cozy mystery series transports listeners back to the bygone era of 1923 Britain, where unflappable flapper and fledgling journalist Daisy Dalrymple daringly embarks on her first writing assignment—and promptly stumbles across a corpse.

No stranger to sprawling country estates, wealthy Daisy Dalrymple is breaking new ground in having scandalously traded silver spoon for pen and camera to cover a story for Town and Country magazine. But her planned interviews with the inhabitants of Wentwater Court give way to interrogation after suave Lord Stephen Astwick meets a dire fate on the tranquil skating pond. Armed with evidence that his fate was anything but accidental, Daisy joins forces with Scotland Yard to examine an esteemed collection of suspects and to see that the unlikely culprit doesn’t slip through their fingers just as the unfortunate Astwick slipped through the ice.

    " Fluffy British manor-house murder set in the 20's. Nothing particularly special here, but it's the first one. I might read a couple more just to see if they improve, but otherwise it's a nice, bland, day-in-the-sun story with no surprises. "

    " This is the first in a cosy series about Daisy Dalrymble (sp?). It takes place in the 1920s. It is just the kind of light mystery that I like, historical, not too serious and with a little romantic tension. Looking forward to the next book in the series (on reserve at the library)! "

    " Nice little British mystery set in 1923 and full of all the usual suspects. Wealthy family estate is the scene of the crime with the policeman in charge rather smitten by one of the houseguests. It all ends well and sets the 1st in a series of mysteries to come. "

    " I really liked this - traditional country house murder whodunnit but the main character Daisy is very likeable and the characters geniune though the use of the word 'spiffing' is somewhat overdone lol! Would highly recommend "

    " When I first put this series in my list I wasn't sure I would like it. I throughly enjoyed reading Death at Wentwater Court by Carola Dunn. The series is called Daisy Dalrymple Mystery and I just enjoyed all characters and the mystery. "

    " This is the first in a long series of innocent little stories based on a 1920's woman with a penchant for finding dead bodies and becoming more and more involved with a Scotland Yard Chief Inspector. These are no brainers, fast reads, and entertaining. "
