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.

Narration a bit off

This is an engaging, undemanding story that evokes English seaside holidays nicely. It was my first Daisy Dalrymple mystery, and I'll certainly try another. However, my enjoyment of this one was diminished by the off-putting narration. The attempted English accent is poor, and the characters' voices are barely distinguishable from each other. The diction, pace and sound quality are fine. I don't usually notice the narrator's voice once I've got into a story, but this one grated on me throughout.

Utterly Delightful

As usual a lovely story line which naturally unfolds. Loved this seaside setting too. Not my favourite Daisy Dalrymple performer as I find her English pronunciations are unclear at times as is her interpretation of an English accent but even that can't spoil a delightful diversion from reality.
