Reading at the Beach is hosting this fun meme: Each week she invites you to spotlight a book whose title begins with the featured letter. This week we have the letter D.
My D book is Death at Wentwater Court by Carola Dunn. This novel is the first in the Daisy Dalrymple series, which is set in 1920s Britain. Here's what I had to say in 2007, when I read the book:
Lots of fun. Not fine literature, but a good cast of characters, a fun time period, and a plot that held up. Scotland Yard's Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher is a great character, and I hope he plays a part in future books. I love the substory of the titled Daisy becoming a working girl and the waves it causes with her landed gentry friends.I read the second book in the series, The Winter Garden Mystery, in 2008. I think it's time to visit Daisy again. In truth, I listened to both novels, read by Bernadette Dunne, who is one of my favorite narrators. She is a master at the British slang and really brings out the fun in this series.
Can you recommend any other Roaring Twenties books (any genre)?
