Peril at Somner House: A Mystery Featuring Daphne du Maurier

Peril at Somner House: A Mystery Featuring Daphne du Maurier - Joanna Challis I really can't evaluate this book fairly because I was so distracted by the numerous grammatical errors, especially the misplaced phrases, the first of which would have been hilarious except that it occurred at a moment of what should have been high drama. Some examples:

"Returning, sobbing, to Josh’s compassionate arms, we all stared guiltily at one another."

"Entirely lost in my own world, my paintbrush crashed to the floor and rolled to the door."

“If left in Max’s hands, they’ll lose the estate.”

"I asked if she wanted to join Sir Marcus and I, but she refused, resuming her usual sullen outlook."

“We were inseparable, much to our detriment and our parent’s distress.”

"After refusing to pass the jam bowl on my third request, I said, 'Miss Woodford, do you not hear me on purpose?'"
