Publisher's Summary

Unflappable flapper and Town & Country scribe Daisy Dalrymple searches for a killer whose vicious pen matches a murderous heart in this delightful installment of Dunn's cozy mystery series.
In the 1920s, in post - World War I England, the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple, newly engaged to Detective Inspector Alec Fletcher, is asked by her brother-in-law to discreetly investigate a series of poisoned pen letters that many of the local villagers have been receiving. When the pompous and unbearable brother of the local vicar is killed by a very large rock, dropped on his head from a great height, it seems clear to all that this campaign of gossip has escalated to murder. With the help of her husband, who'd rather she not get involved, Daisy tries to uncover who wrote the letters and who that person has driven to murder before the killer strikes again.

Interesting premise; disappointing execution

Interesting premise of a writer with a Scotland Yard detective fianc/e happening upon murder mysteries in post-WWI England. However, the female characters are again either bitter ignorant virgins, useful fat chicks, loose women or dutiful wives. Disappointing!

A bit boring

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This starts slow and is quite tedious and filled with way too many characters.


What was most disappointing about Carola Dunn’s story?

Its a tad boring and hard to get into.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

She isn't really that good and distracts from the book.


Do you think Styx and Stones needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Lord no. Enough is enough.


Any additional comments?

It was fine. I got through it. Not my favorite Dalrymple story.
