Dandy Gilver
review 1: I'm really enjoying the discovery of the Dandy Gilver mystery series. It's been fun to read and gives me that British thrill while being a little different because its set in Scotland. I'm also very much enjoying the time period of 1920's. A rousing time in history yet not one I've read about much. The mystery was well-written and played. The circus folks made the story that much more intriguing and fun and Dandy is a great character. A fun historical mystery series that never gets too nasty or graphic. I'm looking forward to the two newest installments to the series coming out this year.
review 2: 3.5/5 I found this hard to get going with at first, but that may be more of a reflection on me, and what I had been reading previously, rather than anything
... morelacking in the book. It was a slow, gentle read - more of a meander than a roller-coaster ride! I did find it easier to read, the longer I read it, and I did enjoy the book. It was set in the 1920's but is written by a current author. I am looking forward to trying more in this series. less

I enjoy getting to know Dandy Gilver at least as much as I enjoy the mysteries.
Bit hard going when there's not a likeable character in sight.
This is another good one in the series.
