In the summer of 1924, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher is off on a holiday by the sea with her step-daughter Belinda, Belinda’s chum Deva, and Daisy’s husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard. Daisy is anticipating a relaxing, nondramatic holiday—but Daisy doesn’t have that kind of luck. It seems that a low-rent Don Juan has been busily seducing the local womenfolk, and, in a town this small, no secret is kept for long.

When the Fletchers’ picnic is interrupted by the discovery of a broken body at the foot of the cliff, that of the philandering local innkeeper, the unflappable Daisy Dalrymple finds herself embroiled in a mystery.

Like Jacqueline Winspear’s much praised novels about Maisy Dobbs, Carola Dunn vividly evokes the life and times of 1920s England wrapped in a classic mystery to delight her many fans.

    " I really enjoy the Daisy Dalrymple series and this was another fun read involving the charming sleuth. While it takes place in the early 20th century, the heroine is a bit advanced for the times which makes her sweet but edgy at the same time. "
