Read full description of the books Gunpowder Plot:This is one of the best novels in the series: lighthearted and fast moving. Daisy and her husband, Detective Chief Inspector of Scotland Yard Alec Fletcher, investigate the double deaths of a tyrannical father and his female guest. Nobody is sorry about the father, who terrorized his family for years, but the guest was a nice, friendly woman. Why was she killed?
Quirky family relationships and a host of colorful secondary characters complicate the investigation, as usual. And as usual, I found a word in the author’s expansive vocabulary I’ve never read before. Antediluvian – do you know what it means? I didn’t, but a dictionary came to my rescue. I won’t tell though.
This book was pure joy to read. Using Daisy’s favorite word: spiffing.
The only problem I have is with the cover blurb. In the blurb, the murder victim is called a viscount, while in the book he is a baronet. I wonder if whoever wrote the blurb even read the book. If not, it’s their loss.
Read information about the authorCarola Dunn is the author of more than 30 Regency romances, as well as 16 mysteries (the Daisy Dalrymple mystery series is set in England in the 1920s). Ms. Dunn was born and grew up in England, where she got a B.A. in Russian and French from Manchester University. She travelled as far as Fiji before returning to settle in California. After 30 years in the US, she says she still sounds as if she arrived a month ago.
Prior to writing, Ms. Dunn’s various jobs included market research, child-care, construction--from foundation trenches to roofing--and writing definitions for a dictionary of science and technology. She wrote her first novel in 1979, a Regency which she sold to Warner Books.
Now living in Eugene, Oregon, Ms. Dunn has a son in California who has just made her a grandmother, and a large black dog named Willow who takes her for a walk by the Willamette River each morning. (www.belgravehouse.com)
