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.

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.

Great story, horrible narrator

Please find a different narrator for this great series of books! I've long been a fan of Carola Dunn, but the narrator of this one and at least one other is just awful. Not only does she have an affected inaccurate fake English accent (it would be better to have someone without an English accent at all than this fakery), but she also doesn't know how to pronounce a lot of words properly, especially proper nouns. For example, the South African town of "Mafeking" is NOT two syllables, but three, something anyone with the slightest knowledge of the Boer (another mispronounced word) War would know.

Pronunciation is odd!

Where does Styx and Stones rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a reasonably entertaining audiobook.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the early twentieth century setting in England.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Mia Chiaromonte?

I found although her voice is pleasant that her mispronunciation of certain words, particularly the vowel 'o', did jar on me. This may be the difference between British English and American English.

Accent is wrong.

It's annoying reading the book that is supposed to be English people talking when American words are used such as braid instead of plait, but to then listen to the audio and find it's an American accent too is so frustrating! Why set a book in England showing the different classes yet have an American reading. Couldn't finish listening, it was driving me mad!!! Next time, Carola Dunne should stick to setting books in America!!!!
