This was my introduction to "cozy mysteries", and I quite enjoyed it. Even if I had only "The King's Speech" (imagining Twistwam's pronunciation as that of Colin Firth) and "The Unicorn and the Wasp" (Doctor Who episode) on which to base my mental pictures of the era. You know, where a lot of things are "super" and "spiffing", and young ladies are fondly called "old girl".

The cover of the book shows a blonde woman though, when the heroine is described as red-haired. Tsk, tsk. ( )

It was entertaining. It won't cure cancer or put a man on the moon, but it was a light and breezy read and sometimes, that's just what the doctor ordered. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. It is very fun and has interesting characters. I hated the way that virginity is treated as something to get rid of at any cost, but I guess that's a pretty common attitude these days. The mystery was good with plenty of red herrings, but there is very little spying, so the title is a bit misleading. ( )
