It's part Gothic, part modern mystery. I love the way she twists the two together.

Need some undemanding reading and want the frivolousness of a 1930s British country home mystery. It might have been au courant at the time. Now its chief interest lies in the period atmosphere it evokes. The blurb may have compared Heyer to Christie, but that under values Christie. Makes a decent enough reading experience in a time too hectic to concentrate on much.

    Not My Cup of Tea.

    I am not fond of English mysteries. I find the language cumbersome and the stories drawn out unnecessarily. All of this held true for this book. It was a very slow read for me. But if you like this type of mystery and are not hindered by the language, you might enjoy it.

    This is not my style, at all!

    I found this to be sluggish and droll..Maybe I just dont get it. The characters were flat. The women were so helpless! There were no real climaxes. By the time I got to the end, I really didn't care 'who did it" or if anyone lived to tell about it
