Kurzbeschreibung

In December 1923, the formidable Dowager Viscountess Dalrymple has decided that for Christmas the family will all gather at Brockdene in Cornwall at the invitation of Lord Westmoor. Her daughter - Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher - is something less than pleased but yields to the demands of her mother, especially as she'll be there just before the holidays working on another article for Town and Country about the estate itself. But the family gathering quickly goes awry. Brockdene, it seems, is only occupied by the Norvilles - poor relations of Lord Westmoor - and Westmoor himself won't be joining them. So Daisy, her husband Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, and their family must spend their Christmas holiday trapped in an ancestral estate with a rich history of lore, ghost stories, rumors of hidden treasure and secret passageways with a family seething with resentments, grudges and a faintly scandalous history.

The veneer of civility that pervades the halls of Brockdene, however, begins to wear thin when long-held family secrets threaten to bubble over, and one of the Christmas guests if found savagely murdered. With few clues as to who committed the murder and with too many motives as to why, it is once again up to Daisy to sort out the truth that lies beneath a generation of poisonous secrets.

Format: Taschenbuch
Dieses Buch der "Daisy Dalrymple Serie" ist eines der besten, die ich bis jetzt gelesen habe.
Die Charaktere sind alle glaubhaft angelegt und die Geschichte, wenn (lobenswerterweise) nicht blutrünstig aber geschickt konstruiert.
Die Örtlichkeiten und die gesellschaftlichen Gegebenheiten der hier geschilderten Epoche machen diese Krimi-Reihe zu einem Highlight und die Autorin kann man somit ohne schlechtes Gewissen in einem Satz mit Agatha Christie und ähnlichen Mystery-Autoren der Spitzenklasse nennen.
Höchst empfehlenswert!

Eine sehr glaubhafte und spannende Geschichte präsentiert uns die Autorin in dieser weiteren Episode der Reihe mit Daisy und Alec. Die Charaktere sind liebenswert und detailgetreu gezeichnet, die Story könnte auch ziemlich aktuell sein. Auf den Täter kommt man erst im Verlauf, doch die Hinweise sind gestreut. Ein gutes Buch für einen rundum vergnüglichen Nachmittag.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A good old-fashioned Christmas crime 10. Dezember 2015
Von Patto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This Christmas cozy has it all. It takes place in Brockdene, an isolated country mansion stuffed full of antique weapons. Its ornate cabinets have secret drawers. There are medieval peepholes and a secret passageway once used by smugglers. There's even some talk of a ghost. And questions of inheritance are brewing amidst the family in residence -- a time-honored motive for murder. The residents are from an illegitimate branch of the family. Or are they?

Daisy is writing a magazine article on the venerable old house, its impressive contents, and its legends. Her mother Lady Dalrymple has managed to wangle an invitation for herself and Daisy's family to spend Christmas at Brockdene. It's handy that Alec Fletcher, Daisy's husband of Scotland Yard, is one of the party, since there will be a murder to solve.

It's cute that there are kids among the guests -- Derek, Daisy's nephew, and Belinda, Alec's daughter. They snoop all over the grounds looking for clues, getting muddy in the woods and covered with cobwebs indoors. They pretend their puppy is a bloodhound, although he tends to chew up the clues.

This is one of the he more successful Christmas mysteries I have read. The characters are well drawn, the plot is believable, the setting is perfect, and the 1920s period ambiance is fun. Daisy continues to be both a charming amateur sleuth and an admirable independent woman. Reading the series in order is best, but you could jump in here if you're dying for a good Christmas mystery.
2.0 von 5 Sternen Wanted to love this, but couldn't. 26. Oktober 2016
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I wanted to much to love this book! I love it when authors write holiday mysteries and usually find myself reading them over and over around the holiday or whenever I'm feeling in a festive mood. But as much as I've enjoyed most of the Daisy Dalrymple mysteries, This one just dragged on and on and on. Most of the characters didn't seem well-developed, and there were too many to keep track of (which may have been the point, and I just missed it), a lot of the book felt like it was written just to meet a deadline, or perhaps the author was bored because the publisher wanted a holiday book but she really didn't have any good ideas, so she just wrote and wrote and finally had to tie it up somehow. There were a few exciting/interesting moments, but the end completely left me feeling flat. I had the feeling that the author had reached the minimum number of words needed to finish the project and just wanted to get it over with.
The best part of the book was reading about some of the Christmas traditions we don't have in the United States. I really hope that the author tries to write another Christmas mystery because like I said, I have really enjoyed most of her other books.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A Satisfying Addition to the Daisy Dalrymple Mysteries 18. Oktober 2016
Von Murph01 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
When Daisy, Alec, and Belinda are invited to spend Christmas at a lord's manor, they accept the opportunity--after all, a Chief Detective from Scotland Yard is never safe from a summons to work, even during the holidays. Daisy goes a couple of days early in order to write an article about the house and its old artifacts.
When her family arrives, she is excited to begin celebrating. On Christmas Day, however, a visiting chaplain fails to show up for the service. In the ensuing days, everyone becomes involved in finding the criminal.
Readers of this series will enjoy this book: the characters are aptly drawn, and it's fun to see young Belinda and her cousin join in as detectives. The plot is interesting, a bit tangled and satisfying , but it is not riveting. Nevertheless, it's a fine read.
4.0 von 5 Sternen When Daisy arrives ahead of the family to write the article she finds a very odd household - the staff takes care of the house f 4. November 2015
Von ARG - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Daisy has imposed upon a distant relation to visit his country house and write an article. Somehow her mother finagled invitations for the whole family including the children and their dog. When Daisy arrives ahead of the family to write the article she finds a very odd household - the staff takes care of the house for the Lord and the poor relations fend for themselves. Per the gossip Lady Darylmple brings this stems from an unsubstantiated marriage of the current earl's uncle to an Indian woman who along with her children now quietly live in the home as unacknowledged relatives. One of the sons turns up with a curmudgeonly preacher who soon winds up dead. Alec is outed as a cop and must investigate. Bel and Derek help along with Nana the dog. Did not figure out the motive until the very end.
4.0 von 5 Sternen More of a police procedural than usual 7. März 2012
Von MamaSylvia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
In this 11th entry in Dunn's cozy historical mystery series, Daisy's working trip to ancient Brockdene is co-opted by her mother for a family Christmas with an earl. But a murder pulls Alec back into working mode, with enthusiastic help from Daisy, Belinda, and Derek.

Plot/Storyline: 4.25 stars
The leisurely start showed us Daisy arriving at lovely old Brockdene to write an article and muse on the disappointments in store for her mother, the largest of which will be celebrating Christmas with an earl's poor relations instead of the earl himself. But once the murder occurs, the storyline switches from character-focused to plot-driven, and the pace picks up as Alec is reluctantly drafted to investigate whodunit and Daisy pursues her own evidence gathering. There were some minor but annoying elements, including Dowager Lady Dalrymple sucking up to Mrs. Norville, Belinda not only finding an important piece of evidence but having Alec recognize it as such, and the utterly predictable epilogue. I missed the plot twists one usually expects in a cozy; the feel was more of a police procedural, although it still held my interest. The story itself would stand alone if the reader had skipped the earlier books, but I don't think it would be as satisfying a read because it relies on previous character development.

Characters: 4.5 stars
The characters from previous books are just as likable as ever. Daisy and Alec have settled into being happy together. Belinda is a charming little girl and clearly delighted to finally have Daisy as her "Mummy." The new characters are much less likable. Godfrey is the worst type of history fanatic, considering everything else (including his family) less important than the antiquities he has adopted as his care. Jemima is an excellent argument for corporal punishment for children, and Felicity was so obnoxious that Daisy's desire to help her didn't ring true. Otherwise, the Brockdene Norvilles were believable enough. Dora and Miles were relative nonentities. Of course Calloway was thoroughly awful, as he is intended to be. Dunn pays practically no attention to the servants.

Writing style: 4.75 stars
Dialogue is one of Dunn's strengths as a writer, ringing true and distinctive. Descriptions were perhaps a little more than absolutely necessary, but believable given Daisy's enthusiasm for the beautiful old house.
