In April 1924, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher must face her darkest fears and confront the one person she's tried to avoid-the dentist. But upon arriving for her appointment, she discovers the dentist stone-cold dead. The circumstances of his death are suspicious but everyone seems anxious to write it off as accidental. Once again it falls to the redoubtable Daisy to uncover the truth behind this case of murder most foul. Critical Praise for "The Daisy Dalrymple" novels by Carola Dunn: "Replete with well-drawn characters, snappy dialogue and interesting plot twists...Easily the best entry in a charming series." ("Booklist" on "Mistletoe and Murder"). "The period sense remains vivid, the characterizations are excellent, and the mysteries are, if anything, more perplexing than ever." ("The Oregonian" on "Rattle His Bones"). "Daisy and her husband spring into action, surrounded by historical armaments, secret rooms, hidden treasure, and family secrets. For fans of British cozies and Dorothy Sayer's novels, this is a very inviting situation." ("Library Journal" on "Mistletoe and Murder"). "Styx and Stones is a swift, deeply enjoyable read. While Dunn's influences are many, she ultimately makes this territory her own." ("The Register-Guard"). "Reading like an Agatha Christie thriller, "Rattle His Bones" is a charming look at life after the first World War." ("Romantic Times"). "Dunn captures the melting pot of Prohibition-era New York with humorous characterizations and a vivid sense of place, and with careful plotting lays out an enjoyable tale of adventure." ("Publisher's Weekly" on "The Case of the Murdered Muckraker").
