Read full description of the books Rattle His Bones:I am usually a Daisy Dalrymple fan but this tale, despite its great setting in the Natural History Museum, did absolutely nothing for me.
A jewel theft, a murder and a disparate group of characters there certainly were but as for a coherent story line, I couldn't just grasp it. It rambled, it wandered and I found myself constantly referring to the sketch map of the Museum as relief from a sometimes turgid storyline.
I will not give up on Daisy, for she does have her charms, and it is always fun to see her involved in a murder even though boyfriend, later husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher tries desperately to keep her away from any such action. He usually fails as in this case but even Daisy could not tempt me to finish this volume, which I dismissed about two-thirds of the way through.
Terribly sorry Daisy but I hope for better things next time.
Read information about the authorCarola Dunn is the author of more than 30 Regency romances, as well as 16 mysteries (the Daisy Dalrymple mystery series is set in England in the 1920s). Ms. Dunn was born and grew up in England, where she got a B.A. in Russian and French from Manchester University. She travelled as far as Fiji before returning to settle in California. After 30 years in the US, she says she still sounds as if she arrived a month ago.
Prior to writing, Ms. Dunn’s various jobs included market research, child-care, construction--from foundation trenches to roofing--and writing definitions for a dictionary of science and technology. She wrote her first novel in 1979, a Regency which she sold to Warner Books.
Now living in Eugene, Oregon, Ms. Dunn has a son in California who has just made her a grandmother, and a large black dog named Willow who takes her for a walk by the Willamette River each morning. (www.belgravehouse.com)
