Publisher's Summary

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

Excellent mystery. Carola Dunn skillfully unravels her story. Daisy and company are a pleasure to spend time with as they work their way thru the twists and turns of the story

I don't know who's worse, American's attempting English accents or English attempting American accents . . . it's a toss up!!

Dreadful narrator

I have tried, twice yearly since 2015, to listen to this book and have failed each time - the narrator mangles virtually every other word thinking, I can only presume, that she is using an English accent - no she isn't!! Today I managed 2 minutes - will now delete it.

Good story. Dreadful reading

This is the fourth of these books I've listened to. Two different narrators. Both mangled the English language. Even allowing that they are not English or British the basic grasp of how to pronounce Malvern or Hereford or even Savoy is irritating. in the end it became a game to spot the next bad pronunciation.

Having said that the stories are light and fun and I will grit my teeth and listen to more.

Oh, dear....<br />

Done to death kidnap tale. Uncertain whether it was intended as a farce. Slappable characters.
Appalling narration. Lovely voice but the worst and inconsistent pronunciation of basic English words.
