During the post-war turbulence of 1920s England, the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple shocks her family by getting a job writing, a job that leads her to Wentwater Court, a manor house full of jealousy and murder.

Blackwell North Amer
It's the early 1920s in England - the country is still recovering from the Great War and undergoing rapid social changes that many are not quite ready to accept. During this heady and tumultuous time, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple, the daughter of a Viscount, makes a decision shocking to her class: rather than be supported by her relations, she will earn her own living as a writer. Landing an assignment for Town & Country magazine for a series of articles on country manor houses she travels to Wentwater Court in early January 1923 to begin research on her first piece. But all is not well there when she arrives. Lord Wentwater's young wife has become the center of a storm of jealousy, animosity, and, possibly, some not-unwanted amorous attention, which has disrupted the peace of the bucolic country household.
Still, this is as nothing compared to the trouble that ensues when one of the holiday guests drowns in a tragic early-morning skating accident. Especially when Daisy discovers that his death was no accident...
In a series debut that is sure to delight fans of the classic British cosy mystery, Death at Wentwater Court brings readers old and new back to the "golden age" of mystery.

The first book in the Daisy Dalrymple series

If this tale, the first in a long line of mysteries, is any indicator, I've just found my next go-to series. The period writing is absorbing, humorous, and entertaining, and the who, why, and how are all explained surprisingly, yet satisfactorily. A clear winner.

Great first book in a series. The author did a great job of letting the characters develop rather than cramming the reader with too much info at once. Can't wait to read book 2!
