Busman's Honeymoon, SAYERS, Dorothy L.
717 6972 SAYERS, Dorothy L. Busman's Honeymoon
Softcover; Mass Market PB HarperCollins: NY; c1937, 1995; 403 pages Very Good 
Light spine creases, covers creased and lightly edgeworn, pages and inside covers age browned; pages clean, none loose. ; This is 'the last of the Wimsey mysteries completed by Dorothy Sayers. And while murder is hardly the best way for the newlyweds to begin their honeymoon, it is certainly the most appropriate. Their married life begins when the former owner of their newly acquired estate is found quite dead in the cellar. What Lord Peter hopes to be a private and romantic stay in the country becomes a baffling case, what with a misspelled "notise" to the milkman and a dead man who has not a spot of blood on his smashed skull and not a pence less than six hundred pounds in his pocket. In short, as Lord Peter says, "Back to the old grind. Rigor mortis and who-saw-him-last, blood-prints, information received and it-is-my-dooty-to-warn-you." Together, the newlyweds pursue the truth to its less than happy ending even as they look ahead to their lives together.' Recommended.; "Busman's Honeymoon has everything—mystery, comedy, love, and drama—all served up in Dorothy Sayers's best style."—NYTimes This author highly recommended by many Anglophile Books readers including Jerri C. of the ATS and the AT and DES email discussion groups.

719 7163 SCARLETT, Susan [Noel Streatfeild] Babbacombe's
Softcover Greyladies: Edinburgh; c1941, 2014; 262 pages As New 
A lovely book with faint edgewear; looks unread.; Her children's books are well known and loved but this author also wrote a dozen 'light romance' novels under the pseudonym Susan Scarlett. This heart-warming romance was originally published in 1941.

Into the heart of the Carson family, close, hard-working and happy, comes their disruptive and selfish cousin Dulcie, with her decidedly cheap values. George and Janet try to make her welcome and treat her as one of their own; they find her work in Babbacombe’s department store where eldest daughter Beth is just beginning her first job in Gowns, but they struggle to make allowances for her outrageous behaviour. For it is Dulcie who takes pleasure in humiliating young Girda at her school concert; it is Dulcie who jealously tries to blight the blossoming romance between Beth and the new man in Cooked Meats, David Babbacombe himself. But then it is not Dulcie, who doesn’t understand kindness and love, who lives happily ever after.; Image is one of actual copies on offer.
