Usual pattern for a Monday, all but two or three clues go in after half an hour but rose take ages.
Reinstated after review having financial difficulties (10) = STRAITENED
review = anagram (of reinstated)
O? (4,6) = LOVE LETTER
Definitely the record so far this year.
Rings about fabulous bird outside in river (7) = ORINOCO
ring = O, about = containment, fabulous bird = ROC, outside = containment
No new words, favourite clue:
Commercial advice from chamber — a temporary worker to get rise (6,6) = CAVEAT EMPTOR
chamber = CAVE, a = A, temporary worker = TEMP, rise = TOR
Spirit of honour about to end (7) = SPECTRE
honour = RESPECT, about = RE, to end = move letters to the end of the word.
Had both of these before but took a while to drag them from memory:
Butterfly that may make someone speaking pause (5) = COMMA
Loose women said to mingle with monied men (4-9) DEMI-MONDAINE
to mingle = anagram (of said monied men)
STRAITENED = having financial difficulties; distressed
ROC = fabulous bird (from Arabian legend)
