Strong Poison by Dorothy L. Sayers

This is the sixth Lord Peter Wimsey book I've read (five novels and one collection of short stories) and I've enjoyed every one of them. But this one is my favorite so far. It introduces Harriet Vane, a novelist who is accused of killing her fiancé in a way she wrote about in one of her books. Lord Peter not only believes she is innocent but also wants to marry her. The delightful Miss Climpson, who made her first appearance in Unnatural Death, is back as well.

I read this for the category Classic By a Woman Author and I rated it 5 out of 5.

I just love Harriet and Lord Peter. I'm glad you're enjoying the books, too. And just like that, you've finished two classics!

This and Gaudy Night are two of my favourite Sayers' books.
