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

Another stop in a very readable series

I'm so glad I stumbled upon this series. The characters are very likable, immersed in Dunn's world of historical fiction that is so palatable one does not even realize she is learning a thing or two from our not so distant past. There are many more books to read in this series and I'm off to read the next. ..toodaloo.

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.

Love this series

What did you like most about Damsel in Distress?

The series is easy listening and the stories are enjoyable

Any additional comments?

The narrators pronunciation of English place names was particularly irritating, some research would have stopped me shouting out loud at the errors!
