Slow to start and confusing for first chapter. Needed to be edited tighter was a couple of chapters too slow in middle. ( )

If you find P.G. Wodehouse to your liking, and if you are partial to a frolicsome but finely constructed murder mystery once in a while, DO NOT FAIL to investigate Catriona McPherson! ( )

Dandy Gilver is asked by a friend to look into missing diamonds, and then one of the family who has been robbed is found dead, Cara Duffy's fiance Alec is unsure about the death and his suspicions encourage Dandy to keep hunting. The two of them spark well as a team. The banter sounds authentic and the characters appealed I'm looking forward to more of this. ( )

meh. I read 2/3 and just didn't enjoy the writing and it was awfully convoluted. The characters continued to change their minds about who did what. I found it bothersome. ( )
