Publisher's Summary

The inimitable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher and her husband Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher seem to get a reprieve from their sleuthing duties when they are invited to the wedding of their friend, Lucy Fotheringay.
Lucy's grandfather is hosting the ceremony at his beautiful estate and so it promises to be a typical affair with hordes of gossipy aunts and other colorful, but not necessarily pleasant, relatives. Daisy meets all these characters and observes the ensuing familial fraternization with a certain kind of amusing nonchalance. That is, until Lucy's great aunt is found strangled to death in her bed. Lucy, in the meantime, has arranged to meet her betrothed in the conservatory, but when she arrives she finds him trying to revive her uncle, who has died - or has he been murdered? And just like that, a normally celebratory occasion turns suspicious. Now Daisy must sift through a throng of relatives - aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents - once wedding guests and now murder suspects. And she must find the killer quickly before another family member becomes a corpse.

Dalrymple at her best

Story was quite good. But the narrator was shrill at times in her effort to distinguish Daisy from Lucy. I found myself wincing.

Not the best in the series

This installment in Daisy's adventures suffers from a too-large cast of characters and a too-talky plot. Listening to it, it seemed to be all talk and very little action. I do not care much for the narrator, especially the way she does the different voices. Alec sounds quite unappealing in her voice, whereas when I read the books in print, he came across as much less abrasive and dismissive. I like the series, have read them all in print, and am now listening to the audio versions in order of publication. If you, like me, are a fan of the series, don't skip this one. But, if you're looking for your first Daisy Dalrymple, this is probably the worst choice.
