Reading all the Daisy Dalrymple books in sequence has been a challenge - many are discarded from our local library! However, I find them to be very well written, with colorful, well-developed characters. They don't pander to the modern requirement for gratuitous sex, ugly language, gore and forced vulgar humor... Every one, including this one, is a "good read."
While I have greatly enjoyed this series so far, this book is probably my least favorite up till now. I still love Daisy and Alec and all the other regular characters, but I found this particular mystery just a little dull and (it pains me to say this) a little tedious to get through. Perhaps I just didn't care for the museum setting - it just didn't make for a very exciting story. That being said, I still basically liked it and certainly look forward to reading other books in the series.
I'm not much on historical fiction (early 1920s) , but I do enjoy Daisy.
A fun read, espcialliy for those who enjoy reading about the 1920s.
Another fun Daisy Dalrymple mystery
