Summary

In March of 1926, Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher and her friend and collaborator, Lady Lucy Gerald, head off for several days to a stately home reputed to have the best grotto in the country. Working on a book of architectural follies, they plan to research and photograph it.
Leaving her husband and young twins behind, Daisy is expecting a productive weekend at Appsworth Hall, with the only potential difficulty being keeping Lucy from offending the current owner, a manufacturer of plumbing products. Alas, it's not to be quite so simple.
At the home, they find themselves faced with a curious assortment of people, including the abominable, tactless Lord Rydal, who is rumored to be having an affair with one of the guests while in ardent and artless pursuit of the hand in marriage of another. When the grotto explodes with Lord Rydal in it, it's not a question of who would do it―as most who've met him would be sorely tempted―but who actually did do it.

Sheer Folly

A good story let down by poor reading. The Narrator was rather flat and didn’t seem to be aware of the flow of the language.

Drivel;

Would you try another book written by Carola Dunn or narrated by Lucy Rayner?

Too long and tedious for a senseless story with an even sillier denouement. Don't waste your money. I'm sorry I did.

Set my teeth on edge

The high pitched voices of the narrator gave me a headache. Excruciating! I could only stand a few minutes of it. I almost never don’t finish an audio book but just couldn’t stand this one.

Great Story

This story reminded me of why I enjoy Daisy. The last few books were disappointing, but Ms Dunn is back in form. The killer was fairly obvious, but the characters were well drawn and Lucy Rayner’s narration was flawless.
