Sintesi dell'editore

In March of 1926, Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher and her friend and collaborator, Lady Lucy Gerald, head off for several days to a stately home reputed to have the best grotto in the country. Working on a book of architectural follies, they plan to research and photograph it.

Leaving her husband and young twins behind, Daisy is expecting a productive weekend at Appsworth Hall, with the only potential difficulty being keeping Lucy from offending the current owner, a manufacturer of plumbing products. Alas, it's not to be quite so simple.

At the home, they find themselves faced with a curious assortment of people, including the abominable, tactless Lord Rydal, who is rumored to be having an affair with one of the guests while in ardent and artless pursuit of the hand in marriage of another. When the grotto explodes with Lord Rydal in it, it's not a question of who would do it―as most who've met him would be sorely tempted―but who actually did do it.

Great Story

This story reminded me of why I enjoy Daisy. The last few books were disappointing, but Ms Dunn is back in form. The killer was fairly obvious, but the characters were well drawn and Lucy Rayner’s narration was flawless.

Set my teeth on edge

The high pitched voices of the narrator gave me a headache. Excruciating! I could only stand a few minutes of it. I almost never don’t finish an audio book but just couldn’t stand this one.

Fun Read

Another fun read. Just what was needed for long drives and longer walks. To Audible-It's really annoying to have to keep writing to meet your review length requirements. I'd be happy to review all the books if it weren't for your "15 word" minimum prompt.

Not one of her besr

I have enjoyed this series so far but this book was excessively long and did not hold my attention well. I did change the narration speed to 1.1 to get the right pace of narration.

Another great Daisy

Carola Dunn presents another strong mystery in Sheer FollySheer Folly is a fun book, and I liked the listening experience. I give this book four stars.

Fed up with Alec

I've listened to the series from the beginning and loved the stories, but I'm fed up with Alec's treatment towards Daisy. He constantly bereats her for "meddling" and doesn't listen to her when she talks to him only when it's convenient for him. Other than this, the story was great.

Dahhhhhlings, it’s annoying. What.

Julia is a pitiful little mouse, with a voice that makes me want to push her into the muddy grotto. Lucy is given a loud, shrill voice that makes me turn the volume down whenever she has a speaking part. Great Scott Daisy. Alex has about 5 phrases repeated ad nauseam throughout the series. And no original thoughts.
Pretty sure Daisy is a sociopath at minimum. She is presented as a cheerful twit who seems to enjoy the murders of her acquaintances and manipulating her friends and family.
Female servants are treated as weak, hysterical, ignorant silly things.
The only thing that changes in these books is the setting. Even though they are free, I’m done with this series.

always unique

Loved it. Never could get the slightest idea or hint if which character committed the murder. Lots of suspects.

Shallow Story, Awful Voice

I couldn’t even listen to this. I didn’t like the main characters. They were shallow and caddy. Clearly even the narrator thought so, because the voices she gave the women were grading, like fingernails on a chalkboard. I gave up after an hour.

Sheer Folly

A good story let down by poor reading. The Narrator was rather flat and didn’t seem to be aware of the flow of the language.

Good story...shame about the narrator

As usual Dunn writes a highly entertaining tale. Sadly Rayner is a fairly dire narrator who manages to mispronounce basic English words and names in the weirdest way: e.g. "inveeaigal" for "inveigle". Makes one wonder what her first language is.

Drivel;

Would you try another book written by Carola Dunn or narrated by Lucy Rayner?

Too long and tedious for a senseless story with an even sillier denouement. Don't waste your money. I'm sorry I did.

Since writing the previous sentence I have struggled through the novel again to see if it was any better second time around. It wasn't. One plus for the author.."Sheer Folly" was certainly an apt title.

One of the Better Daisy Stories

Could have been a number of people. The first half was rather depressing as full of unpleasant characters. Once one of them was 'dispatched' it became much more fun with an OH! right at the end.

Enjoyable

Well written but audible version too fast. Easily solved by speeding up. Not my favourite DD novel but still good fun.
