"In the late 1920's in England, The Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher is recruited to help her cousin Edgar--i.e. the Lord Dalrymple. About to turn fifty, Lord Dalrymple decides it is time to find out who would be the heir to the viscountcy. With the help of the family lawyer, who advertises Empire-wide, they have come up with four potential claimants. For his fiftieth birthday, Edgar invites those would-be heirs--along with Daisy and the rest of the family--to Fairacres, the family estate. In the meantime, Daisy is asked to be the family's representative at the lawyer's interviews with the claimants. Those four are a hotelier from Scarborough, a diamond merchant from South Africa, a young mixed-raced boy from Trinidad, and a sailor from Jamaica. However, according to his very pregnant wife, the sailor has gone missing. Daisy and Alec must uncover a conspiracy if they are going to stop the killing"--Provided by publisher.

I picked this up mainly for the cover art, never having heard of the author or the series before. Definitely qualifies as a cozy mystery. I found it tedious and very slow moving . Much attention to minute details and the story seem to drag on and on until the end. All theaction takes place in the last thirty pages.

I noticed the author has written 20 other books in the series. While they may interest other readers, I will not be joining them .

Overall impression, not good, not bad. If you're looking for a lazy time waster this might be the one.
