Death at Wentwater Court

No stranger to sprawling country estates, well-heeled Daisy Dalrymple is breaking new ground at Wentwater Court to cover a story for Town & Country magazine. But her interview gives way to interrogation when suave Lord Stephen Astwick meets a chilly end on the tranquil skating pond. With evidence that his death was anything but accidental, Daisy joins forces with Scotland Yard so the culprit can't slip through their fingers like the unfortunate Astwick slipped through the ice ... Praise for The Daisy Dalrymple Mysteries: 'Appropriate historical detail and witty dialogue are the finishing touches on this engaging 1920s period piece.'
