Pressestimmen

"Replete with well-drawn characters, snappy dialogue, and interesting plot twists...a charming series." --"Booklist" on "Mistletoe and Murder"" ""Carefully crafted characters, plenty of plot twists, a high-class setting and an together satisfactory conclusion make for top-hole entertainment." - "Publishers Weekly" on "A Mourning Wedding" "The period sense remains vivid, the characterizations are excellent, and the mysteries are, if anything, more perplexing than ever." - "The Oregonian" on "Rattle His Bones" "Daisy and her husband spring into action, surrounded by historical armaments, secret rooms, hidden treasure, and family secrets. For fans of British cozies and Dorothy Sayer's novels, this is a very inviting situation." - "Library Journal" on "Mistletoe and Murder"" ""Reading like an Agatha Christie thriller, "Rattle His Bones" is a charming look at life after the first World War." - "Romantic Times" ""Styx and Stones" is a swift, deeply enjoyable read. While Dunn's influences are many, she ultimately makes this territory her own." - "The Register-Guard"

Kurzbeschreibung

In the summer of 1924, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher is off on a summer holiday by the sea with her step-daughter Belinda and Belinda's chum Deva, and her husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard. Currently three months pregnant, Daisy is anticipating a relaxing, non-dramatic holiday. But Daisy doesn't have that kind of luck. It seems that a local low-rent Don Juan has been busily seducing the local womanfolk and, in a town this small, no secret is kept for long. A fact that is amply illustrated when the Fletcher's simple picnic is interrupted by the discovery of a broken body at the foot of the cliff--that of the philandering local innkeeper of bad memory. Like Jacqueline Winspear's much praised novels about Maisy Dobbs, Carola Dunn vividly evokes the life and times of 1920's England wrapped in a classic mystery to delight her many fans.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Etwas zu plätschrig 16. Februar 2007
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Eine eigentlich nette Geschichte, wie sie immer wieder vorkommt, aber für meinen Geschmack diesmal etwas zu plätschrig. Die Charaktere sind gewohnt charmant und liebenswert, der Ablauf spannend und interessant, aber dennoch fehlt mir irgend etwas an der Geschichte, als dass ich 5 Sterne hätte geben können. Durchaus lesenswert, vor allem im Verband mit den anderen Büchern der Reihe, aber nicht absolute Höhe!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Ein uninteressanter Fall, langweilig beschrieben. 27. Juni 2013
Von bookswap
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich habe gerne Romane von C. Dunn gelesen, aber dieses Buch ist nur langweilig. Der Ermordete taucht nur kurz auf.
Von Handlung kann nicht groß geredet werden, am meisten werden die Spiele der 2 Kinder beschrieben. Die Charakterisierung der verdächtigen Personen ist klischeehaft und man ahnt zienlich schnell wer der Täter ist.
Ein uninteressanter Fall, langweilig beschrieben.

4.0 von 5 Sternen a wonderfully enjoyable read 18. September 2005
Von tregatt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If you'd like to take a break from all those complex and riveting, but gory mysteries that feature tired police inspectors on the hunt for serial killers, who seem to be constantly thwarted by incompetent superiors and ambitious junior officers, you might consider Carola Dunn's latest offering in the utterly charming Daisy Dalrymple mystery series, "Fall of a Philanderer."

It's the summer of 1924, and Daisy, her stepdaughter, Belinda, and Belinda's school-chum, Deva, are happily enjoying themselves at the seaside town of Westcombe while they wait for Daisy's husband, Alec, to join them. The days are glorious and Westcombe seems idyllic, but it doesn't take Daisy too long to realise that Westcombe seems to possess it's own version of the serpent in the garden, George Enderby, the landlord of the Schooner Inn. Married himself, George's specialty seems to be comforting women, married or not, who feel lonely and neglected. Daisy is determined not to get pulled into the affair -- after all she and her family are in Westcombe for a holiday! But soon after Alec's arrival, the Fletchers discover George's broken body while exploring a secluded cove. With Alec put in charge of the investigation, Daisy is, nevertheless, determined not to embarrass him by getting involved in the investigation herself. Except that people will confide in her! And if it will help Alec to make an arrest, Daisy is not adverse to rolling up her sleeves in order to sort through all the gossip and innuendo in order to help Alec arrive at the truth...

While "Fall of a Philanderer" was not the thrilling, fast paced, on-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of read, it was nice, quick and enjoyable one nonetheless. The plot unfolded in a fairly even and straightforward manner -- there were no jaw dropping plot twists, even though the book did possess quite a few suspects that should keep readers wondering for a fair while. The thing about "Fall of a Philanderer" is that it is a nice, relaxing and fun read. It'sot very complex, or very clever. It is, however, very well written and brilliantly executed. And after having read some mystery novels that have been heavy on atmosphere and possessed convoluted plot premises that went no where and left one feeling confused and cheated, "Fall of a Philanderer" was a wonderful treat. I knew what I was in for, and Carola Dunn delivered in spades! A wonderfully fun read.

(Note: I really liked the author's description of the coastal town of Westcombe. It was vivid and inviting, and in a rather interesting coincidence reminded me of my recent trips to a few coastal towns in Northern Oregon.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a historical mystery is supposed to be 12. Januar 2006
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I am a historical mystery fan, and I look for several things when choosing what to read:

a) Likable characters and protoganist that you care about and are interested in

b) Lack of deep dark pyschological pretensions and no bad guys winning in the end

c) good writing

d) Engaging plots

e) masterful evocation of a different place and time

Carola Dunn does all the above with Daisy Dalrymple, and did it very well in the latest installment of Daisy's adventures. Here, the person murdered is satisfyingly worth having removed from the earth (whoever did it) and the twists and turns in the plot to get to that point of discovery are diverting. This time period in England (between the 1st and 2nd World War) is particularly interesting, as you watch the twilight of the aristocracy and see how larger events on the world stage contributed to that (details that Dunn gently weaves into her story without one really noticing.)And Daisy is a wonderful character, I would pick up the next book just to see what happens next in her life.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Find 18. Januar 2006
Von kathy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This was my first Daisy Dalrymple Mystery. I picked it up at the library...would you believe...because I liked the cover! It was an enjoyable read, free from all the nasty, gory details that so many mystery novels offer today. Daisy books are dripping in history, lightheartedness, and intrigue. What an amazing combination! I have bought three of my own in this series and will definitely get more! By the way, I have discovered that the cover art is great on ALL the Daisy novels.

4.0 von 5 Sternen fine historical cozy 31. August 2005
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In 1924 Scotland yard Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher, his wife Daisy, his young daughter Belinda and her pal Deva vacation in Westcombe. While at the beach overseeing the activity of her stepdaughter and Deva, Daisy is accosted by local owner of the Schooner Inn George Enderby. Even when she tells him that she is married he still tries to pick her up as marital status is not an impediment for the philandering innkeeper.

Several people warn daisy to stay clear of George. However, on a family picnic Daisy is unable to avid George as his broken body lies dead at the bottom of the nearby cliff. As Alec investigates whether an accident or a homicide occurred, Daisy realizes there are plenty of suspects starting with her landlady Mrs. Anstruther and her husband Peter, but the local police look at Sid the simple minded mute beachcombing scarecrow as the prime suspect; the last person Daisy believes could commit a homicide.

The murder occurs almost half way into this historical cozy, but that enables the audience to meet the key support players and understand their respective personalities. That in turn allows readers to observe who might want the womanizer killed as several suspects have motive. This is not for the action oriented crowd but Daisy's fans will appreciate her latest investigative tale as she does what drives Alec crazy out of fear for her safety , Daisy investigates.

Von drkhimxz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A goodly number of books have come along in this series since the last one I read. Our Daisy has married her man, established a fine relationship with her husband's teen-age daughter, and is three months pregnant with the first in her marriage. Amazingly, the entire family is on vacation, including the Chief Inspector, her husband. Needless to say,the vacation becomes a bus-man's holiday as both are drawn into the case of the man who fell or was pushed off a cliff.
The reader/actress does a fine job of creating interesting characters with distinctive voices. The plot, though hardly startling is serviceable, the writing stylish and the design of scenes adequate to the job of keeping us involved to the end. Yes, as has been pointed out, the climax is pretty anti-; but not enough so to disappoint us with the book in its entirety.
I am sure that Daisy Dalrymple fans will want to read the book; others will probably enjoy it as well. It is light, rapid reading, with insufficient complexity to require a full wall of little gray cells. An entertaining and relaxing work for leisure time reading.
