Book 47 for 2011

Busman's Honeymoon by Dorothy L. Sayers. 398 pages.

A reread of this classic mystery. I'm horribly bad at choosing favourites, but this is definitely among my favourite Lord Peter Wimsey books.

Wimsey has finally married his beloved Harriet Vane but their honeymoon gets off to an unfortunate start when there's no one to let them in to their newly purchased house in the country. Before they've been married a day, Peter and Harriet are up to their ears in a murder case and embroiled in the lives of their new neighbours to boot.

Having read the book many times now, of course I already know "whodunnit" and how, but that doesn't matter - the fun of t is in revisiting the characters like old friends one hasn't seen for a while.
