2014 book 167

Carola Dunn's Damsel in Distress
The fifth Daisy Dalrymple book finds Daisy being enlisted by one of her friends to help foil the kidnapping of an American heiress (and boy, if you thought the old-timey dialogue was bad before, wait till there are AMERICAN characters!). This isn't really a mystery per se--eventually they figure out who's behind the kidnapping, but it's not like there are a lot of suspects or anything--but it's well-plotted and action-packed. And all the romances finally start getting somewhere. We also get to meet some of Daisy's relatives, which is highly entertaining. Solid entry. B/B+.
