A friend of mine recommended this series. She loves it and has all the books. The leading lady – Dandy Gilver is married to in the background Hugh and lives a fairly privileged 1920’s life. She's a cross between Daisy Dalrymple and Lady Cora from Downton. Everything is seen from her perspective and is written with a great sense of the time it is set in. Despite her position, she's a down to earth lady, with a keen sense of humour and more forward than one might expect. Nosiness and boredom start her quest after some missing diamonds, but common humanity drives her forward when the tail darkens. In many ways, she's a reluctant sleuth, but the dogged one. Despite there being only the one storyline, the author kept me turning the pages. Don't expect the usual money, jealousy or revenge denouement. The surprise comes as much from the why as the who? If you enjoy Daisy Dalrymple-esque cosy mysteries, you should enjoy this. Nina Jon is the author of the Jane Hetherington’s Adventures in Detection crime and mystery series.

An interesting addition to the 1920s lady detective canon. Although they are from the same class Dandy is a very different character to Daisy Dalrymple or even Harriet Vane. Seemingly conventional, and possible a little naive, her basic goodness means that she's able to get to the heart of a mystery faster than most of her contemporaries. The plot was interesting, if conventional, but this was a fun read.

I am enjoying this title. I like the time frame & always enjoyanything set in Scotland. Dandy...what a great aninteresting character. Look forward to seeing her develop in future reads.

I enjoyed this very much: the writing flows, it's well-plotted, and the main character is both likeable and believable. I particularly appreciate her matter-of-fact view of marriage: she has her part of the house, her husband has his, and they occasionally meet for meals. I look forward to reading the sequels.

I cannot finish this book. It rambles on and on. I dont understand the positive reviews that prompted me to buy this book.

You have grievously omitted ebooks 2, 3, and 4 of this excellent, wonderful series! Fans are not happy about skipping from book 1 to book 5. Get on the stick, will you? I'm not getting any younger, here.
