"In early 1923, the young Honourable Daisy Dalrymple has made a decision that shocks her social class-instead of living in the Dower House with her mother and being supported by her relatives, she's decided to make her own living as a writer. Landing an assignment for Town & Country to write a series of articles on country manor houses, Daisy travels to Wentwater Court to research her first piece. There she finds a household in turmoil, filled with holiday guests and recriminations. But that's nothing compared to the uproar when one of those guests drowns in a tragic early-morning skating "accident." When it is learned that this was anything but accidental, Scotland Yard is called in and a young Chief Inspector, Alec Fletcher, is called in to investigate."--publisher's website.

The first book in the Daisy Dalrymple series

If this tale, the first in a long line of mysteries, is any indicator, I've just found my next go-to series. The period writing is absorbing, humorous, and entertaining, and the who, why, and how are all explained surprisingly, yet satisfactorily. A clear winner.

Great first book in a series. The author did a great job of letting the characters develop rather than cramming the reader with too much info at once. Can't wait to read book 2!

This Book is really good. I really enjoyed reading this book and it is a page turner that is for sure and each page gets more interesting as the mystery goes on.

This is all I am going to say about this book. I highly recommend this book. There are a total of 22 Books in this Series and this is Book #1 from the Series. The name of the Series is called A Daisy Dalrymple Mystery Series by Carola Dunn. I dearly love love this Series.

I will be reading the rest of the Books in this Series.
