“The countdown has begun. Henry Devereaux Twyst, 18th Duke of ­Chellingworth, is getting married in Wales. He is deeply in love with his fiancée but is overwhelmed by the excessive wedding details. There are far too many traditions involved—the Welsh cakes, the decorating, the gwadhoddwr to announce their nuptials, not to mention the Morris dancers who must proceed the wedding party through the streets of Anwen-by-Wye. Except ­Aubrey Morris, the keeper of the troupe’s kit of exquisite 16th-century silver bells, engraved sticks, and massive baton, is missing. The ladies of the WISE (Wales, Ireland, Scotland, England) Enquiries Agency are on the case to find Aubrey. VERDICT This charming sequel to The Case of the Dotty Dowager will delight M.C. Beaton and Jeanne M. Dams readers as the lively ladies use their individual talents to track down their quarry.” Library Journal, January 2016

“Ace’s gentle sequel to 2015’s The Case of the Dotty Dowager resettles the members of the WISE Enquiries Agency—Christine Wilson-Smythe, Annie Parker, Mavis MacDonald, and Carol Hill—formerly of London, in Anwen-by-Wye, Wales, where Henry Twyst, the 18th Duke of Chellingworth, (whom the four women helped in Dotty Dowager), once again has a problem. Henry is due soon to be married on St. David’s Day, March 1, but Aubrey Morris, a key member of the Morris dancers meant to perform at the wedding, has gone missing. Henry’s dowager mother, Althea, asks the WISE women to track Aubrey down, and they’re soon on the man’s trail. In between cups of tea and plenty of cookies, Christine, Annie, Mavis, and Carol take great pride in their ability to harness newfangled technological devices in their quest for clues. Cozy fans will enjoy their chitchat as much as their sleuthing.” Publishers’ Weekly, December 2015
