Book Review: Hangman's Holiday by Dorothy Sayers

Hangman's Holiday: A Collection of Short Mysteries (Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries, #9)Hangman's Holiday: A Collection of Short Mysteries by Dorothy L. Sayers

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I enjoyed this book of short stories much more than the last.  I think I knew it was short stories ahead of time, which helped.  Also, I would read a story, then put the book down and work on the sand castle, then read a story, then walk in the water, then read a story ... Ah, the beach was the great distracter :)

I liked these stories better, too.  The story about the Dr. who took his wife to Spain; the masquerade.  I even liked Montague Egg and his stories.  The last two stories were interesting in their development without a sleuth. 

Anyway, excellent stories.  Ready to move back to a long book and see more of Miss Vane.

  1. Is that the one that has "Talboys" with the visiting old maid who disapproves of the way they're raising their son? I love that one.

    1. Nope. I'll keep my eyes out for that one, though!
