Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A pleasant historical.” Library Journal
“Delightful…The upper-crust Daisy is an appealing heroine who always retains her respectability, even when encroaching on traditional male enclaves. While light in tone, her newest adventure, like the others in this series, offers enough tart wit to engage the seasoned mystery reader. And the novel is a feast for anglophiles.” Publishers Weekly
“With its picturesque setting, eccentric characters, and gentle sleuth, Styx and Stones is your prototype English village mystery. Daisy is an enjoyable creation, and readers will especially enjoy her interaction with Belinda. Dunn’s depiction of the changes occurring in the English social structure during the ’20s is also fascinating and enlightening.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
