Dunn is very good at creating suspense in her Cornish mysteries. This is the second one I've read that was a page turner through the middle of the book. I am not a fan of these as well as the Daisy Dalrymple ones. The two I originally read didn't grab me but these two did. I like Megan, Nick and Eleanor just fine. For the first time, it awakened in me a desire to visit Cornwall. phyllis2779, September 8, 2018.

The description of the rough country side and the older protagonist makes this an exciting mystery. However, solving prejudices never comes easy.

I love Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple series, I like the Cornish series. Enjoyed this third book, but a bit like the first one, tended to move rather slowly in parts. Aunt Nell needs to have a few personality flaws or something--she's almost too good to be enjoyable (but then I like Flavia de Luce). Fans of cosy mysteries might like to try this book.

Loved it! Does anyone know if there is going to be a sequel?

Set in Cornwall, this mystery begins with a decision to take a hike along the rugged shoreline of Cornwall. Eleanor, who has retired from her international philanthropic work, is accompanied by her niece, a policeman, and Nick, a neighboring artist. The pleasant jaunt turns serious quickly, when they turn a corner and see a body floating in the rough, freezing water. As her niece quickly disrobes and dives in to rescue the body, a pair of hikers arrive to help them get both rescuer and rescued out of the water and up on the rocks. The drowning man mumbles about his family being trapped in a cave before slipping into a coma. Where did the man come from? Are there others lost on the coast? How did they come to be abandoned? These are the questions that drive the participants into frenzied action as they fight weather and criminals to find the missing people.
This is a fine book with lots of local color and some good detective work. Also deftly drawn and very interesting characters. Quite enjoyable.

This book is the third in a series. I haven't read the first two, but I don't feel that I missed out on all that much by not reading them. Just a bit of back-story.

Eleanor always seems to be where the action is. Or at least where something foul is afoot. She doesn't mean to be, it just happens. And when it does she feels compelled to do whatever she can to help. Despite local authorities not enjoying that help. So when a man is rescued from a dangerous bay, and tells of his family trapped in the nearby caves, once again, Eleanor has to find out what happens, before something terrible befalls the family.

Eleanor was not as much of a focus as I expected her to be in the book. Her niece actually plays a slightly larger role. They're both great characters. They have their own personalities and are strong and independent. I think that the men were actually a bit weaker. They all had some kind of flaw or dis-likable quality. But that also made them more real than the female characters. The bad guy I didn't find very menacing. There wasn't enough history to really understand or care about why the person was doing what they were doing.

I enjoyed the setting of the book. Taking place a few decades ago, it examined the relationships between the English and those of Indian descent and the turmoil between the races that was present at the time. It's actually what set the whole mystery in motion. That being said, despite it being charming, I found the first part of the book too slow in pace while the end was too rapid and didn't have enough explanation. It felt too quick to be real. And it lessened my enjoyment of an otherwise good mystery because of it.

I'm not sure if I'd go back and read the first two, or even more in the series. They were a nice cozy, but I think more ardent fans of Dunn would like them more.

British countryside mysteries are my favorite. Carola Dunn's characters are likeable and distinct. Her writing style is very appealing, easily read and very entertaining. It's a cozy on the couch with a blanket read on a wet or snowy afternoon.

This is the third episode of this interesting mystery series featuring pensioner Eleanor Trewynn and her dog Teazle. When Eleanor's niece, Megan, rescues a half drowned man while out for a walk with Eleanor and her neighbour Nicholas Gresham, Eleanor finds herself in the middle of a mystery. Where did the man come from and why has he been washed up half drowned on the Cornish coast?

This is an exciting story with a race against time as well as a hair raising sea voyage. I found myself turning the pages faster to find out what happened. The suspense is well done and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. The characters are interesting and their interactions are believable. I've grown to like Eleanor and her niece Megan in the three books available in this series so far.

I particularly like the police characters - the brusque D I Scumble who has a very human side to him; Megan herself struggling with all the prejudice of the era against women in the police. If you like your mysteries with interesting characters and backgrounds then give this series a try - they can be read in any order.
the first two cd's were defective, I don't know about the rest of them.

The story is very good as I have read the book.
