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.

Lovely Cozy Read
Narrator was more in Distress than the Damsel
In the middle. It includes some appealing characters and it's fun to hear of their developing relationships - and the budding romance of Alec and Daisy. But some of the minor characters are mere stereotypes.
The most memorable moments were the jarring mispronunciations by the narrator. She drove me to distraction.
This narrator has no understanding of American English; the father from Chicago had a Texas drawl. She doesn't even understand how to pronounce English place names or English proper names. When she attempts British dialects, she falls back on her Australian accent.She does not know how to pronounce words that any well-read person knows.
