Produktbeschreibungen

From Publishers Weekly

In the eighth in a charming series of mysteries set in 1920s England, newlyweds Daisy Dalrymple and Scotland Yard detective Alec Fletcher, headed for America aboard the Talavera, find their honeymoon disrupted by mysterious accidents and murder. Besides a nice period feel, Dunn (Rattle His Bones) provides the usual likable cast, which here includes American millionaire Caleb P. Arbuckle, his daughter Gloria and son-in-law Phillip, as well as Arbuckle's friend, wealthy Yorkshire businessman Jethro Gotobed and his flashy new wife, Wanda Fairchild, a former chorus girl. The ship has not been long underway when a man falls overboard, and a distraught young woman claims he was thrown. Though the man is rescued, the captain wants to know what happened, so Alec finds himself dragooned into service, despite his seasickness. When Gotobed witnesses a second man falling overboard, the Yorkshireman claims the victim was shot, and this time there is no rescue. Daisy and Alec have to wonder who among their acquaintances on the Talavera is a murderer and what is his or her true motive, but they're not even certain who the intended victim was. While the plot tends to be predictable, Dunn manages some good twists to keep her detecting duo proving their mettle. Fans of light historical whodunits should be well pleased.

From Booklist

Honeymooners Daisy Dalrymple and Scotland Yard inspector Alex Fletcher are sailing to the U.S. aboard the SS Talavera. The trip quickly becomes a busman's honeymoon when one man is pushed overboard and another is shot. Many of the passengers make good suspects, including the wealthy Jethro Gotobed and the rude young gambler Chester Riddman. As Alec battles seasickness, Daisy investigates the case, writes about the voyage for a magazine article, and guiltily tries to avoid the obnoxious Wanda Gotobed. The 1920s setting gives Dunn lots of opportunity to pepper the story with details of the times, and if she is a bit heavy-handed in the way she incorporates historical fact into her narrative, the period ambience is, on the whole, more entertaining than distracting. This is a routinely enjoyable entry in a lightweight but pleasant-enough historical series. If only Dunn could avoid giving her characters such silly names (Gotobed?). Jenny McLarin

Auch wenn man schon ziemlich früh die Zusammenhänge erkennen kann, tut das dem Genuss keinen Abbruch. Wieder eine charmante Geschichte der liebenswerten Helden, mit vielen Wendungen und farbigen Charakteren. Einige historische und wissenschaftliche Referenzen geben noch zusätzliche Einblicke. Die Vorhersehbarkeit stört auf keinen Fall.

As a mystery, this book isn't very challenging. It's quite easy to figure out the solution. But the whole story is so charming, the setting is unusual and yet convincing and the protagonists are so likeable that the mystery actually isn't that important anymore.

Carola Dunn has created the setting that works best for her Daisy Dalrymple stories - a fixed location and a limited number of suspects. This time it's not a house party but a ship, and it's Daisy's and Alec's honeymoon, and everything that can happen on a ship duly happens. There is sea-sickness, people falling overboard and even a rescue of ship-wrecked emigrants.

Among the passengers there are nice and nasty people, there are some love stories going on and the whole of it makes a very entertaining book. If you liked the first Daisy Dalrymple stories you'll definitely like this one, too.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Still fun visiting old friends 4. November 2015
Von ARG - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Daisy and Alec are given a 'present' an additional portion of honeymoon sailing to America with Arbuckle and family. Arbuckle's buddy has married a showgirl much to his dismay. Daisy and Alec are traveling as regular citizens until a farmer goes overboard and a bright young thing swears he was pushed. Soon after Arbuckle's friend is standing near another man who goes overboard and swears he was shot first. The whole thing was obvious to me even before something went wrong, the set up, the reasons and the mastermind. Still fun visiting old friends.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Start with a bang, end with a whimper 16. Juli 2015
Von Laura E. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book started out so good. I was laughing out loud at parts (especially concerning Wanda's married name) and certain it was going to be worthy of 5 stars. But the last couple of chapters started to drag. And I had guessed the case of mistaken identity right off the bat. Nor was the wrap-up completely satisfactory. A story which started out with a bang, hummed along smoothly for the most part, but fizzled out in the end.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Not exactly a Bon Voyage! 14. November 2015
Von Patto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
One of the best Daisy Dalrymple mysteries!. Newlyweds Daisy and Alec are on a ship bound for America, where Inspector Alec Fletcher will be on special assignment representing Scotland Yard. The voyage is supposed to be part of their honeymoon, but the ship is plagued with disasters: violent storms, seasick passengers, men overboard, a death by poisoning, and finally the dramatic rescue of passengers from a shipwrecked vessel.

Alec is asked to investigate the overboard "accidents" but he's so seasick that Daisy (a great sailor) has to spearhead the investigation. It's always fun to watch her charm people while wheedling information out of them. Her friendly sympathetic personality is a magnet for confidences.

There are lots of interesting characters in Daisy's social circle, and one of them might be a murderer. Among them are a British millionaire who just married a much younger chorus girl, who in turn may be betraying him; a ladylike spinster who cures ills with herbs, affectionately called "the witch" by her friends; a rich young American who's becoming addicted to gambling and fast company; and his unhappy aristocratic fiancée who has captured the heart of a ship's officer.

The personal stories are very involving. And Daisy's interactions with her new husband are sweet. The complex web of secret interconnections among the various characters leads to a fascinating, if tentative, solution to the several crimes.

This is one Daisy's fans won't want to miss.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A fine mystery to sail through 24. September 2016
Von Murph01 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Daisy and Alec are newly married, and are thoroughly surprised when Alec's boss tells them that they have been given a trip to the USA so that he can help the FBI's new chief to come up with a plan to keep the agency in line(--and also to keep their eyes on the fiancée of a very rich industrialist). Almost as soon as they reach open water, however, a series of mysterious accidents occur as other passengers end up overboard. And as soon as someone tells the captain that Alec is from Scotland Yard, he is tasked for coming up with explanations, meaning that Daisy jumps in to give him a hand.
This is a very nice read--I am currently up at 1:59 because I couldn't put it down. Both Daisy and Alec continue to develop depth, and their interactions are fun to watch. I would recommend beginning with the first book in the series, but that is certainly not necessary.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not one of the more clever books 22. April 2014
Von Spaypets - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Unfortunately, I solved this mystery right after the first victim was assaulted. It's always irritating when the answer is right in front of the detectives and they keep overlooking it.
