    One of the pleasures of reading is that you can do things through books you d never want to do in real life like climb Mt Everest or survive a concentration camp Perhaps that s why I enjoy this book so much I m thankful I ve never spent the weekend with a fortune hunting Russian Prince, a young man who despises his father and insists on telling everyone about it, and a girl who treats all of life as dramatic theater not to mention a murderer Yet I find time spent with this book delightfu One of the pleasures of reading is that you can do things through books you d never want to do in real life like climb Mt Everest or survive a concentration camp Perhaps that s why I enjoy this book so much I m thankful I ve never spent the weekend with a fortune hunting Russian Prince, a young man who despises his father and insists on telling everyone about it, and a girl who treats all of life as dramatic theater not to mention a murderer Yet I find time spent with this...

    Yawn This was not one of Heyer s better mysteries I found it tedious and slow with absolutely no suspense Along with dull characters, some of which were loopy and made me dizzy Not a good mix I found myself not caring who the murderer was, whether he would be caught or not and I didn t care either way with the romances The heroes were both duds They were dull and stodgy The heroines were on opposite spectrums from each other Mary, was frankly just a bit too perfect Only the imma...

    The first of the Inspector Hemingway mysteries, I read this one for a buddy read with the Reading the Detectivesgroup here This was also my first proper Heyer mystery since the only other one I ve read Penhallow while it did have a murder and some element of mystery, this lasted only for part of the book which wasa character study than a whodunit though a very good one nonetheless.The wealthy Ermyntrude Carter is married to Wally Carter, her second husband who sponges off her, lendi The first of the Inspector Hemingway mysteries, I read this one for a buddy read with the Reading the Detectivesgroup here This was also my first proper Heyer mystery since the only other one I ve read Penhallow while it did have a murder and some element of mystery, this lasted only for part of the book which wasa character study than a whodunit though a very good one nonetheless.The wealthy Ermyntrude Carter is married to Wally Carter, her second husband who sponges off her, lending her money to his cronies she disapproves of, particularly Harold White, enters shady deals with the said Mr White , and is not above entanglements either in other words, not a very savoury person at all Ermytrude, formerly on stage, enjoys admiration and admirers and has them in a Georgian Prince she has invited to stay at their country home Palings, and a neighbouring farmer Robert Steel, who makes no...

    Rating clarification 2.5 starsThis was the second Heyer mystery I ve read While not as enjoyable or well constructed as The Unfinished Clue, it managed to entertain me barely , but it clearly wasn t her best work I would suggest to any reader not to make this your first Heyer mystery, however.Surprisingly enough, after having recently stated in my review for The Unfinished Clue that I can never manage to deduce whodunit, I was able to peg this killer down almost as soon as the deed was done, Rating clarification 2.5 starsThis was the second Heyer mystery I ve read While not as enjoyable or well constructed as The Unfinished Clue, it managed to entertain me barely , but it clearly wasn t her best work I would suggest to any reader not to make this your first Heyer mystery, however.Surprisingly enough, after having recently stated in my review for The Unf...
