Death At Wentwater Court (Daisy Dalrymple mystery #1)
Set in England in 1922, this book (the first of the series) by Carola Dunn follows the adventures of Honorable Miss Daisy Dalrymple in her search for economical independence as a freelance writer for a renowned magazine . While Daisy is staying at Wentwater Court Estate, tragedy strikes as one of the guests turns up dead. Everyone thinks it’s an accident, but Daisy’s photographs may prove differently.
I love this book particularly for the strength that Daisy portrays in a time where women were restricted in many activities. The setting is beautiful. If you’re looking for a nicely paced mystery set in Post World War I England, then this is it.
