Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Engaging…Dunn’s style gives an entertaining spark.” Publishers Weekly
“Another charmer.” Library Journal
“A combo of P. G. Wodehouse and Boys’ Own Adventures, laced with reminders of the all-pervasive class distinctions of the era. A dauntless Daisy and good-natured fun.” Kirkus Reviews

If you're looking for a simple cosy mystery, you might not like this series, but if you like to laugh your way through the sleuthing and enjoy a bit of a spoof, you'll love it.
This story highlight Phillip, Daisy's cousin and very old friend. He has met the perfect girl for him but she is an American and winds up being abducted because her father is a very wealthy man. The kidnappers give the usual cautions, the father is a mess, Phillip is beyond himself but does ask Daisy for help. Daisy brings other friends into it and it all goes cuckoo. Loved it!
I feel that the narrator would have been wonderful in old time radio or vaudeville.
