Publisher's Summary

This first installment of a cozy mystery series transports listeners back to the bygone era of 1923 Britain, where unflappable flapper and fledgling journalist Daisy Dalrymple daringly embarks on her first writing assignment, and promptly stumbles across a corpse. No stranger to sprawling country estates, wealthy Daisy Dalrymple is breaking new ground in having scandalously traded silver spoon for pen and camera to cover a story for Town and Country magazine. But her planned interviews with the inhabitants of Wentwater Court give way to interrogation after suave Lord Stephen Astwick meets a dire fate on the tranquil skating pond.Armed with evidence that his fate was anything but accidental, Daisy joins forces with Scotland Yard to examine an esteemed collection of suspects and to see that the unlikely culprit doesn't slip through their fingers just as the unfortunate Astwick slipped through the ice.

good book, terrible reader

I enjoyed this book very much, but found the narrator to be difficult to listen to. She has a repetitive inflection at the end of each sentence, and her character voices were rather dodgy. It spoiled the book for me, I'm afraid.

The narrator really can make or break a story.

This story was ruined by the truly awful accents produced by the narrator. It's such a shame because it is just the sort of story that in other circumstances I would have enjoyed. I read the other reviews and listened to a sample first and thought it would be ok, but after a while I found I was concentrating on the strange accents and wierd pronunciation. I actually think the narrator would be good reading a book set in America, but she mangled this so that it was at times hard to understand. I was disappointed to find that it is the same narrator reading all of the books in the 'Daisy Dalrymple' set and I certainly won't be downloading any more.
