    I am simply in-love with Brit-Lit, and was so happy to find a well written series. And now I am in-love with the 1920's sensibilities and lifestyle! The dialogue is just too too frightfully fascinating! The writing is excellent, the stories are good (and I can't seem to guess most of the time) and the dialogue and settings are believable. Death at Wentwater Court is the first in this series, presenting the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple, having lost her fiance and brother in the war, and her father the influenza epidemic, is now without a home, so to speak, as her father's title and estate goes to a cousin. She has taken off to London to pursue a career in writing, a distressing idea not just for women in the 1920's, but for an aristocrat! She uses her connections to obtain work writing about the great old houses, estates and castles of Britain. And she inadvertently stumbles across dead bodies and mysteries wherever she goes, causing a certain yummy Detective Chief Inspector to cross her path constantly.

    These are a good fast read! Perfect for the beach or park. Check your library (I got mine there, I was hooked and there are many in the series!), but they are available at a reasonable price on amazon, or at your local bookstore.
