"Busman's Honeymoon has everything--mystery, comedy, love, and drama--all served up in Dorothy Sayers's best style." --New York Times The great Dorothy L. Sayers is considered by many to be the premier detective novelist of the Golden Age, and her dashing sleuth, Lord Peter Wimsey, one of mystery fiction's most enduring and endearing protagonists. Acclaimed author Ruth Rendell has expressed her admiration for Sayers's work, praising her "great fertility of invention, ingenuity, and wonderful eye for detail." The fourth Dorothy L. Sayers classic to feature mystery writer Harriet Vane, Busman's Honeymoon is now back in print with an introduction by Elizabeth George, herself a crime fiction master. Harriet and her love, Lord Peter, have finally tied the knot but begin their married life together on an expectedly sour note when a body is discovered in the cellar of their romantic country estate.

Busman's Honeymoon was a delightful story. I enjoy Lord Peter Winsey and now he is married. But what a time to solve a mystery--with a bride waiting to celebrate. Peter is able to do his job and convince his bride that his life is just that, solving murders. There are some humourous spots, love and drama as they discover the dead and work to bring justice to the crime. Bride Harriet is a mystery writer and has her own problems, but does recognize Lord Peter's dedication to solving mystries and the marriage is off to a start.
Thanks to Dorothy L. Sayers, another good read is on my bookshelves, and we are becoming fast friends with each evening that I spend with her books.
I would recommend this and any of her works to anyone who enjoys mystery, and the
British writers like her. Excellent.
