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.

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.
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.
