In which Miss Hilary Thorpe and Gerald, Viscount St. George, freshly released from Oxford upon an unsuspecting Britain, try to do one of Hilary's friends a simple favour with disastrous consequences; Lady Winifred Wimsey tries her hand at detective work; and Charles Peter Parker, aged five-and-a-quarter, single-handedly repels the German invasion.

Don't worry, I am surprised enough for both of us.

Can't wait for you to read it ♥

I downloaded the file to my e-reader, and am delightedly reading. Hurrah for plotty, well-characterized and totally adorable novel-length fic!

Hurray! By happy coincidence, I have just finished the novel I was reading and need a new one, and here it is, and Wimsey to boot! I am recovering from my holiday tonight, but look forward to starting tomorrow.

Here by twisted ways that probably have something to do with nineveh_uk. What a nice plotty treat! I spotted one red herring but not the culprit. Having gulped it down too quickly I will now come back and read properly.
(And am strongly tempted to chase up some of your chapter heading quotes for holiday reading too, as those I recognise are all from things I've enjoyed.)
Hope you don't mind being friended, but do say if you do - i'm a bit of a lurker altogether and most of what i do write is currently about small children.

I do not mind being friended :D I hardly use LJ at all any more except to announce fics, sorry to say.

ANYWAY I am really happy you enjoyed my fic :DDDDDD And that the plot was at least marginally effective!

In conclusion, I could tell you what all those quotes are from, if you like, and save you some hunting?

Well, more chasing authors, which amazon is adequate for. I'm enjoying the case of the gilded fly :)
