THE ATTENBURY EMERALDS by Jill Paton Walsh

Yes, I finally finished a book!  I've been a bit laid up recently (but am now on the mend) and for some reason could not plow through my current read, Charles Dickens: A Life by Claire Tomalin.  Which is a bummer since I had hoped to finish reading the 400 remaining pages!

However, light reading was no problem.  So, I loaded The Attenbury Emeralds onto my Kindle and read away.  As I've mentioned before, I have a crush on Lord Peter Wimsey and am so happy that Jill Paton Walsh has continued the series created by Dorothy Sayers.

The aftermath of World War II, missing emeralds, murders, and the Wimsey family keeping up with societal changes makes for a satisfying read.  I recommend.
