The inimitable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher and her husband Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher seem to get a reprieve from their sleuthing duties when they are invited to the wedding of their friend, Lucy Fotheringay.
Lucy's grandfather is hosting the ceremony at his beautiful estate and so it promises to be a typical affair with hordes of gossipy aunts and other colorful, but not necessarily pleasant, relatives. Daisy meets all these characters and observes the ensuing familial fraternization with a certain kind of amusing nonchalance. That is, until Lucy's great aunt is found strangled to death in her bed. Lucy, in the meantime, has arranged to meet her betrothed in the conservatory, but when she arrives she finds him trying to revive her uncle, who has died - or has he been murdered? And just like that, a normally celebratory occasion turns suspicious. Now Daisy must sift through a throng of relatives - aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents - once wedding guests and now murder suspects. And she must find the killer quickly before another family member becomes a corpse.

"Regret this purchase"
The story and plot were alright.
However, found that the narrator adopted a very shrill and high pitched voice when performing the female characters.
I absolutely love the series, I can listen with my 13 year old daughter and not worry. We discuss the differences between our lives and hers and compare the two. She is home educated and loves learning about the different levels of status and class.
I wish audible would hurry up and release the rest in the series. There are 25 books. Becomes quite frustrating. I have listen to all the books so far released several times over.
Even my mother likes the stories too and believe me, she is very hard to please.
Pronunciation of words is better too.
