Publisher's Summary

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.
In the continuation of her popular series, Carola Dunn vividly evokes the life and times of 1920s England, wrapped in a classic mystery to delight her many fans.

Most Helpful

a stronger entry in the series, eventually

This starts off sounding like a YA mystery but by hour two becomes a well-plotted cozy with some good setting detail. Narrator Dunne just sounds too American, however, for a Brit cozy, and the jazz age tone she attempts is even less suitable in this installment because there's less humour and flippancy to Daisy, more attempted sleuthing. I've found the titles available to date on Audible of vaying quality but still hope that Audible adds more Dunne titles. Daisy and Alec seem to be developing into a more interesting detective team.
