Tuesday Titles 086..

Dandy Gilver and the Unpleasantness in the Ballroom - Catriona McPherson

Oh man, Tuesday again already?! Time seems to be speeding by at the moment. 
Thankfully, the long weekend gave me plenty of time to make a dent in my reading pile, although I did add to it a little after a trip to my favourite second-hand bookshop in Llangollen. 

Anyway, one of the books I managed to devour over the course of the few days off was this:

Set in 1930s Glasgow, which seems to be in the throes of a ballroom-dancing fever. People are getting excited about competitions, and despite the fact that there has already been some blood on the dancefloor with the murder of one of last year's competitors. 

When one debutante begins to receive death threats, her parents call upon sleuth Dandy Gilver and her sidekick, Alec, to assist. 

I loved this, despite the fact that it's the tenth book in the series - I don't think that matters at all - and just loved the writing style. Think a mix of Wodehouse and Christie which will keep you guessing..
