Pressestimmen

"Daisy exhibits her usual common sense and charm."--"Publishers Weekly""" "Fans of the dauntless Daisy ... will delight in this Anglophilic period mystery."--"Kirkus Reviews""" "As always, Dunn evokes the life and times of 1920s England while providing a plot that is a cut above the average British cozy."--"Booklist" -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

In the winter of 1924, Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher travels to a school friend's house to witness the estate's famous Guy Fawkes celebration. But she gets more than a quiet weekend at the quaint family manse that she was originally hoping for. The home is the site of some severe family tension - the Viscount and head of family is a strict and unyielding sort, insisting that everyone - especially his children - meet his own unreasonable expectations. On the evening of the Guy Fawkes celebration, the Viscount is found dead on the floor of his study, killed by his own hand. What's more, he apparently first killed a guest - a married woman visiting England from Australia - before turning the gun on himself. Now it's up to Alec Fletcher, Daisy's husband and a DCI of Scotland Yard, to unravel the mystery and the long held family secrets that led to this state of affairs before anyone else can fall prey to the tragic cycle of events - a solution that will require, perhaps, more than a little help from Daisy herself. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Nach einem nicht so gelungenen letzten Band, präsentiert sich Carola Dunn hier wieder in Höchstform. Ihre Helden sind gewohnt liebenswert, der Plot ist verstrickt (auch wenn man eine Idee des Täters hat, wird es doch erst gegen Ende aufgelöst), viel historisches Detail, stimmig. Ein wirklich toller, sehr lesenswerter Band.

a very enjoyable read 1. Oktober 2006
Von tregatt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If you enjoy mystery novels set in post W.W.I England, and ones that are engaging, polished and well written, you definitely want to read Carola Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple mystery series, and the latest installment in particular, "Gunpowder Plot."

Gwen Tyndall's (an old school chum of Daisy's) family has been celebrating Guy Fawkes in a big way since 1606, and realising that this would make an excellent article for her magazine, Daisy has decided to travel to Gwen's home in Didmarsh-under-the-Edge in order to observe these celebrations. Daisy soon senses however, that there may be another story in the making at the Tyndall's ancestral home and one that has nothing to do with the festivities at hand. Gwen's father, Sir Harold Tyndall, an autocratic bully, who wants his children to do exactly as he wishes, and is especially displeased right now because his only son, Jack, seems more keen to join an aeronautical company than to run the family estate and farm. Never mind the fact that his eldest daughter, Barbara, has been successfully running things all this while! Also adding to Sir Harold's displeasure is the fact that Gwen seems to be attracted to the very man who is trying to steal his son away from him. All in all, the atmosphere at the Tyndall home isn't turning out to be quite as festive as Daisy had expected it to be. The last things she expected though was that things would end with murder, and that once again she and Alec (her "Scotland Yard" husband) would be in the middle of another murder investigation...

The Daisy Dalrymple mysteries may not be great brain teasers, but they are diverting and intriguing puzzlers in their own right. Carola Dunn does a fantastic job of getting the feel and charm of the period; and Ms Dunn also does a first rate job of maintaining a light and (almost) cheerful tone throughout, even though these mysteries usually center on murder and all the sobering emotions that go with it. Swiftly paced and carefully plotted, "Gunpowder Plot" was a wonderfully absorbing and entertaining read. I especially liked how the author juxtaposed the investigation that Alec his team conducted, with what Daisy discovered all her own -- it gave one a clearer and more complete picture of what was going on. All in all, I spent a very pleasant afternoon pouring over "Gunpowder Plot" -- it was well written and delightful, and very, very absorbing to boot.

NANCY DREW FOR GROWN UPS! 4. März 2007
Von Rosceo Street Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I discovered Daisy Dalrymple mysteries while at home with a virus...wanted to read a book that was NOT substantive and did NOT require deep thought. Daisy is a delight. The Daisy books take me back to the pleasure I remember reading Nancy Drew books in the 1960s! The GunPower Plot reviews history, takes us to a "stately home" in the Cotswalds...and provides interesting characters via Dolly, her Scotland Yard husband, Alec... and extended family and friends. So enjoyable a mystery that after reading GUNPOWDER PLOT (the newest of the series) I am going through all the Daisy books, one by one. Excellent character development, plots that hold attention...a good dose of history...great for those of us who grew up with Nancy...and great for those of us given to being Anglophiles.

The Honorable Daisy Dalrymple does it again 12. Januar 2007
Von Irene Borgogno - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This 15th installment in adventures of the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple continues the light breezy style of this delightful series. Daisy is a houseguest at a country manor, invited to observe a traditional Guy Fawkes celebration. Her intent is to write an article about the festivities, but when the host and an unexpected guest are shot dead, Daisy is once again inadvertently involved in a murder investigation. The plot line is reasonable. The author's efforts to distract the reader's attention from the culprit are a bit heavy-handed, but this slight failing is amply counter-balanced by a supporting cast of quirky characters who are even more amusing than usual for the series. All in all, this is a highly enjoyable book.

Not An Explosive Mystery 15. April 2010
Von M. D. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This novel, with a murder committed at a country house during Guy Fawkes Night fireworks, with a couple from Australia as suspects, is reminiscent of Agatha Christie's "Peril at End House," but Christie is not so long-winded or disorganized in the plotting.
wonderful series! 14. Dezember 2007
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Honorable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher returns with fireworks in the 15th installment of this historical mystery series. Six months along in her pregnancy, Daisy is traveling with her old friend, Gwen Tyndall, to Edge Manor, the Tyndall family estate, to write an article for her American readers on the annual Guy Fawkes gala that has taken place here for centuries.

Gwen's father is a testy baronet who likes to have everything and everyone under his thumb. He is also something of a snob, and is very upset when his son Jack invites a 'commoner', a friend who is an aeronautical engineer, to stay with them for the gala. Jack wants to become involved with airplanes, but his parents are outraged by the idea of their son working somewhere other than the family lands. When Jack finds the body of his father and a 'common' woman (Mrs. Gooch) who was visiting, with her husband, from Australia, dead in the study following the huge fireworks display, he is the first suspect once it is thought possible that murder took place.

Although Daisy had kept her husband's occupation private, Alec is called in to investigate the matter for Scotland Yard. Gwen's family is delighted at the prospect of having a friend of the family involved in the investigation, and Daisy is once more the confidant for many of the suspects' secrets. Gwen's sister Barbara has been the one running the estate in Jack's stead, although it was apparent her father didn't approve. This causes a lot of tension, as well as Gwen's seeming attraction to the man Jack wants to work with, both situations enraging their father. But no one can understand why Sir Harold would kill a stranger and then shoot himself on the night of the gala, which was Sir Harold's pride and joy. Suspects range from the children to perfect strangers to burglars, but Daisy, despite the fatigue and hunger brought on by a healthy pregnancy -- er condition -- uses her charm and common sense to pull the pieces together to help Alec solve the mystery with a minimum of fuss.

Dunn presents a wonderful cozy series depicting the many changes that England was experiencing in the 1920s. Daisy is a respectful young woman with a mind of her own whose views reflect the changing times mingled with understanding of how things used to be. Her love and loyalty to her friends and family is one of her most fantastic characteristics, but she is also open-minded enough to understand the vagaries of human nature.

This is an historical mystery with a delightfully developed plot for those who don't care for a lot of violence and bloodshed. [...]
