Von Ein Kunde am 13. Oktober 1997
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In 1923 just outside London, Phillip Petrie, the son of an English Lord, stops his car on the side of the road to see what is causing a terrible knocking sound. Gloria Arbuckle, the daughter of an American industrial giant, stops to offer her assistance. The pair begins to see each other and Phillip quickly falls in love with Gloria. Phillip courts Gloria and her poppa as he plans to win them both over and marry her.
One day, while Phillip and Gloria were driving together, the car breaks down. Phillip tries to fix it, but they are set upon by some thugs. He is tied up and she is abducted. The kidnappers instruct poppa to raise a ransom without involving the police if he wants his beloved daughter back alive. Phillip turns to his childhood chum, Daisy Dalyrmple, to save the life of his beloved.
DAMSEL IN DISTRESS is a fun to read, who-done-it that ironically laughs at itself as well as high society. Daisy and the support cast (both the recurring and new characters) are all wonderful in a zany way, making this a series worth reading.

Für einmal kein Mord, sondern eine Entführung, aber auch die ist mit Genuss beschrieben, mit sehr viel know-how. Die nebenbei laufende Liebesgeschichte gibt dem Ganzen eine zusätzliche Dynamik. Also sehr unterhaltsam, sehr spannend, macht Lust auf mehr.

Actually, this was the first Daisy Dalrymple I ever read (no idea why I didn't comment on it earlier) and I immediately fell in love with the characters and the setting.

In this story a kidnapping has to be solved, and I can well imagine that the top priority of the people concerned would be to get the victim back, catching the kidnappers is somewhat secondary. So it doesn't really matter if you figure out early who is the mastermind, there is still enough suspense left.

I thoroughly enjoyed the encounters between the would-be rescuers and Daisy's slightly potty cousin who now owns the big estate that once belonged to Daisy's father.
We get to know Daisy's friends and her mother, and the setting is described so vividly that you seem to feel the atmosphere.

It's a delightful book, funny despite the serious theme. Since another of my favourite series has ended I'm perfectly happy to have discovered a new one which I like. I'm going to collect all books featuring Daisy.

HASH(0xa0aeebb8) von 5 Sternen A weak link in an otherwise stellar series. 7. März 2002
Von Sharon Wylie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Set in 1923 England, this series follows the adventures of the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple, a young woman who has defied convention by choosing to make her own living (as a journalist) rather than let her aristocratic family support her.
When Phillip Petrie�s American fiancé is kidnapped and held for ransom, Phillip turns to his good friend Daisy for help. Daisy�s penchant for crime-solving insures her willingness to help her old friend, but she finds herself caught between a rock and a hard place when Phillip asks her not to involve the police. Daisy�s romance with Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, a widower with a young daughter, certainly makes this dictate difficult to follow.
This is the fifth of the series (preceded by �Murder on the Flying Scotsman� and followed by �Dead in the Water�), and although the characters and setting remain as charming as ever, there is not much mystery solving to be had. The perpetrator of the kidnapping is obvious very early on, but the plot revolves more around rescuing the fiancé than solving a crime. The story is best described as a �caper,� with lots of following of suspects, traveling around the countryside, and a climactic shoot-out. Readers who like to decipher clues and try to solve the mystery themselves will be disappointed.

HASH(0xa0af318c) von 5 Sternen Phil finally finds someone, who disappears.... 14. Mai 2002
Von Moe811 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Daisy agrees to help introduce Philip Petrie's new love to his family. She is rich and American and he doesn't know how they will react. Daisy decides to kill two birds with one stone and invites Alec Fletcher to meet her mother. The week before the eventful weekend, Gloria is kidnapped. The villians will kill her if her father calls the police, so Petrie asks Daisy to help him find her.
This was an incredibly quick read (under three hours). I just couldn't put it down. It was nice to see all of the usual characters in a different setting. The author lets us get to know them a little better. Lucy is in every book, but very little time is given to her for example. I am looking forward to the next one.

HASH(0xa0af03cc) von 5 Sternen A nice little period lark 19. März 2009
Von S. A. W. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
When the daughter of an American millionaire is kidnapped, the girl's suitor appeals to Daisy Dalrymple for help. Determined to solve the case without any assistance from Detective Inspector Fletcher, Daisy drafts her chums into scouring the countryside for the kidnappers' hideout.

I enjoy Carola Dunn's light mysteries sent in 1920s England and this book is definitely one of the best in the series. The story sort of reminds me of Agatha Christies "The Secret Adversary"--more old-fashioned thriller with a touch of romance that a traditional who-dun-it. Daisy comes across as very much a Christie kind of heroine--a pretty plucky young thing with a bit of style and a habit of getting mixed up in murder and mayhem.

The book breezes along at a brisk pace and even though you can spot the villain early on, it doesn't detract in the slightest from the story's overall entertainment value. While Ms. Dunn probably won't win any major awards for her work, this book gets my vote for "Fast and Fun Read of the Week".

HASH(0xa0af6354) von 5 Sternen Good Entry 8. September 2014
Von Commenter77 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I really liked this book, better than any so far. Interests vary on that, as shown by some on this post saying the exact opposite. But, to me, the simpler cast of characters was more interesting and easier to follow than the last one. It was agreeable having all those friends on board with their loyalty and cooperation with Daisy and Phillip's "project." The personalities were opened up and developed appreciably. Add to that the engagement(s) and there's an overall enjoyable reading experience. Some writers drag out attachments with ongoing characters, not wanting to change their status, but that can get frustrating after a while. The handling here came along naturally and left me the most enthusiastic yet for the next installment.

HASH(0xa0af69cc) von 5 Sternen Can the kidnapped be found........& who's involved, a good question to start 10. August 2014
Von janberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Another interesting novel by Carola Dunn. Her series is set in England in the early 1900's. Daisy's best friend Phillip has met up with an American girl and he's head over heels in love. On an outing one day they are kidnapped and soon Phillip finds himself left at the side of the road but where is the love of his life? Her father is an American business man with lots of enemies so the hunt is on. Daisy has solved mysteries before so can she do it without consulting the police. Tricky when she's dating a police detective...the ending is a surprise, a great read and hard to put down
