Publisher's Summary

In spring a young man’s fancy will turn to love, and the Honorable Phillip Petrie is no exception. Daisy’s chum is totally smitten with Miss Gloria Arbuckle, daughter of a millionaire Yank. But before the enthusiastic suitor can pop the question, his beloved is abducted. As a distraught Mr. Arbuckle begins assembling the ransom, Phillip enlists Daisy to help him recover his missing sweetheart.

Strictly forbidden to contact Scotland Yard, Daisy must resist the temptation to bring dashing Detective Inspector Alec Fletcher on to the case. But as she closes in on the abductors’ rural hideaway, she begins to suspect that Gloria isn’t the only fair damsel whose life hangs in the balance.

The fifth whodunit in Carola Dunn’s stylish cozy mystery series set in 1923 England once again features British heiress and Town and County writer Daisy Dalrymple.

    "Please change the Narrator"
    What did you like best about Damsel in Distress? What did you like least?

    The story as ever with the Daisy Dalrymple books is fun. but the narration is awful. the constant missproncation of British places is appalling and detracts from the story so much.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Damsel in Distress?

    Daisy slipping down a embankment


    What didn’t you like about Mia Chiaromonte’s performance?

    Please can she learn how to pronounce British names including those of place as they are such and important part of all the Daisy Dalrymple books. I don't expect her to learn a British accent. but it is a basic requirement to get the names right.


    Could you see Damsel in Distress being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    yes

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Daisy, saves the day again but in a non annoying way


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narration is appalling and clearly the narrator had not been briefed on pronunciation of British words. In the beginning it was funny by the end very annoying as I'm a huge fan of the author and chief character.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    daisy does it again

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Daisy Dalyrmple, the 'spiffing' heroine has a friend in a spot of bother again. It is a similar formula of love, larks and lurking menace. This time, however, it is Daisy's chums who are the first on the scene to help foil a dangerous group of cockneys and a yank who have kidnapped the new love interest of bumbling and lovable Philip. Alec, Daisy's own love and Chief Inspector is kept in the dark, due to a promise made, for the first part as police involvement is feared. The plot and group of characters made me think of famous five novels and I half expected to hear someone call for lashings and lashings of ginger beer.

    It is generally an easy listen; a cosey crime with some romance and period glamour. The male voices could have been more convincing but the overall affect was good. If you enjoy a mystery with a lighter side this one may suit you to a T.


    Could you see Damsel in Distress being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    With the success of period and mystery dramas I can see this series of books made into a successful drama series for TV. I would particularly like it if the makers of a TV series allowed the deliciously popular Daisy as much of the honey-haired, English and 'unfashionably curvy' qualities as possible. There are few curvy actresses, especially British 'bright young things'. Maybe Rachel Hurd Wood with her grace and beauty, if she ate a few doughnuts, or Jemima Rooper, who could do the vivacious character credit.
