Book Review: Gaudy Night

Gaudy Night
by Dorothy L. Sayers
This 1936 mystery featuring Harriet Vane and her sometime love Lord Peter Wimsey has the ability to take the reader to those uncertain times when women were just barely allowed to get a college education. Set in a fictional all-women's college, this mystery doesn't have a murder, but it does have charm. Not a page-turner but loaded with atmosphere and character.
