Another spiffing, to use the contemporary slang, mystery featuring the Honourable Daisy Dalyrmple. Daisy is asked by her brother-in-law to visit them in their country home and secretly investigate some poison pen letters he had been receiving. She must keep it a secret because the contents of the letter could hurt her sister irreparably.

She travels to Kent with her soon to be stepdaughter to enjoy the countryside and find out who the vile writer is. Unfortunately, there is a murder before she can uncover the writer of the letters. She continues to provide information. Her fiance from Scotland Yard comes in to the picture with a resulting very distressing misunderstanding. All is smoothed out and the murderer revealed in a surprising twist.

Very good, endearing characters and fun, good read.
