No surprises that I picked up the next Daisy Dalrymple book pretty quickly — they’re just the perfect length for a long soak in the bath followed by a lazy evening, which is exactly how I’ve been reading them. I continue to enjoy the fact that Daisy’s a worker (although helped significantly by her class), and her relationship with Alec and his team; Phillip Petrie is rather a dear, despite being rather daft. His class-conscious snobbery fades away quickly as soon as he talks to someone for a while and discovers some things in common. The new characters for this book are rather fun too: Lady Valeria is, of course, a battleaxe, while Roberta’s stubbornness is a joy. I called Sebastian’s relationships with various characters: it seemed very obvious up-front. I didn’t expect to like him, actually: he displays a pretty weak will to begin with, and a tendency to be led astray from what he should hold to — but in the end, he displays a bit of backbone and it really works. Ben was my favourite of the new characters, perhaps predictably: he sees some of the loneliness in Daisy’s past and is one of those people who reaches out and starts to help heal the wounds a little (brought on by her late love having been a conscientious objector, killed while driving an ambulance, and the way most people viewed him as a coward). The mystery itself is solid enough providing you care enough about the characters to care about the outcome. When viewing the country house to write an article about it, Daisy sees a dead rosebush and comments on it. Once it has been dug up, however, a dead body is revealed — the body of a housemaid everyone thought had run off with a travelling salesman, who turns out to have been pregnant when she died. Daisy involves herself immediately on behalf of the young Welsh gardener (ugh, I was not convinced by his phonetically rendered accent) first accused of the murder, and calls Alec straight in. Of course, it’s a bit contrived — even twice all but falling over a dead body while visiting a stranger’s house for work is kind of unbelievable, so I do hope that there’ll be some variation on how Daisy gets involved as time goes on! The central relationship of the books remains obvious, though it doesn’t develop too fast. Right now, Daisy and Alec are still thinking of the relationship as a possibility, despite their attraction to each other and the telling hints that they really do care. I’m looking forward to seeing this continue to develop. All-in-all, still a fun cosy mystery, and Daisy is compelling enough a character for me to keep following the series — helped by the fact that I also care about Alec (as opposed to Amory and Milo in Ashley Weaver’s books, for example).

    Enjoyable series, or as Daisy might say, "Just spiffing." Not nearly as good as the Maisie Dobbs series, it is still an enjoyable summer read. This one has the body of a serving girl found buried in an estate's garden. The town is ready to pin the murder on the Welsh gardener, but was it really him? I thought this one was fairly obvious from the get-go, but I still enjoyed it. Enjoyable series, or as Daisy might say, "Just spiffing."

    A murder series set in 1920's Britain. This book has a paper-thin plot and pantomime characters. Not much attention to detail- lower class characters all seem to speak the same regardless of regional accents and I found the relaxed and very modern attitudes towards sexual relationships shown by the characters very unbelievable.

When the innocent Welsh under-gardener is accused of the crime, Daisy is determined to uncover the truth. Daisy is a simply delightful character. She manages to convey both inquisitiveness and caring without being excessively nosey or snooty. While she does sometimes rush headlong into trouble, she also takes appropriate precautions and often saves the day. Her slow-burn romance with the dark and sexy Detective Chief Inspector Alex Fletcher is also progressing nicely. Unlike the first book where the mystery is resolved too hurriedly, the investigation here involves more commonplace policework (at least for the 1920s), namely questioning suspects and witnesses, and following up leads. There are one or two rather predictable twists and it is possible to guess the culprit and motive quite easily. The real highlight of the book is Dunn's skillful portrayal of small-town life in rural England, particularly the social and economic changes in the aftermath of WWI, which add a touch of realism to the cozy genre. Bernadette Dunne's narration took some getting used to in book #1, but she is growing on me. I look forward to the next installment.

    I really enjoyed this Daisy Dalrymple book, it was #2 in the series. I read #1 then jumped around a bit so it was nice to come back to the beginning. Daisy's mom still doesn't approve of her daughter getting involved in all this murder stuff, she's a young woman in the 1920s in England and shouldn't be behaving that way. I love it.

Daisy cannot help but get involved when she sees an injustice being carried out, so she convinces Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard to investigate. There are a number of secrets being kept by the residents of the household and some are bound to come out in the process of getting at the truth of the murder. This is a charming cozy mystery series set in the 1920s. Daisy is charming, inquisitive, intelligent and resourceful. She does sometimes plunge headlong into trouble, but on the whole, she is appropriately cautious and responsible. I also like her slow-burning relationship with Fletcher. Bernadette Dunne does a fine job voicing the audio book. She has great pacing and enough skill as a voice artist to give the many characters sufficiently unique voices.

The lord of the manor leased the village to the people that lived there! Oy! Makes me very grateful for my working day. Thoroughly enjoyable, well written, & narrated. Highly recommended, but don't expect anything more than a pleasurable interlude.

    The Honorable Daisy Dalyrymple is visiting an old school chum while writing about her ancestral home when a body is discovered in the garden. Although the local police are happy to pin the housemaid's murder on her young foreign swain, Daisy has doubts.

The Honorable Daisy Dalyrymple is visiting an old school chum while writing about her ancestral home when a body is discovered in the garden. Although the local police are happy to pin the housemaid's murder on her young foreign swain, Daisy has doubts. She calls in her childhood friend Philip Petrie and her new friend, Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard, to help her investigate. Who killed Grace? Was it the beautiful but spineless heir who had gotten her pregnant? His best friend, the jealous Ben? His devoted sister, manipulative mother, or cowardly father? Grace's father or fiance? Or was it the travelling salesman who was seen talking to her only hours before she was killed? There are no physical clues. Only Daisy's stubborn will and insight into human nature can help her solve this case. This is not as good as the first Daisy mystery, Death at Wentwater Court. The main characters have already been introduced, so Dunn spends less time drawing them out. The murder itself is not one of those incredibly convoluted schemes that takes the latest forensic tech to solve. It is just a basic small village murder, and is simply solved by buying rounds of drinks at the village pub and interviewing suspects. The real delight to these books is the 1920s themselves, which Dunn draws with a deft and light hand. Reminders of a depressed economy, rumbles of discontent against the upper classes, growing independence for women, and the damages of the first World War are woven throughout. And the characters themselves are fresh and breezy. Daisy has a great deal of spirit and sympathy, but as smart and kind as she is, she is still very much a product of her upbringing--she can't bring herself to shingle her hair, or stop grouping people according to class. This is, overall, a murder as cozy as a murder can be, and well worth the few hours it will take to read.

The local constabulary prove to be incompetent so Daisy gives Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher, whom she met in book one, a call to assist. Also featuring from book one is Daisy’s childhood friend Phillip who, clearly, wants to be more than just a friend. The mystery is nothing particularly intriguing and most of the plot twists are obvious (especially one which was obvious as the nose on my face) and, to be honest, probably heavily borrowed from other books. But who cares? It’s all fun and the budding romantic relationship between Daisy and Alec is really well done. In another negative, I’m sure there’s a few historical inaccuracies and Dunn is a little heavy handed on the slang but again, I didn’t really care. It’s a quick fun read and I will definitely read more of the series. 4 out of 5

    I just discovered that I had neglected to review this book when I read it. It has been a couple months but I remember several uncomfortable episodes, that the villains are really horrible (yes there is only one murderer but there are more than one villain here), and the end was a bit of a cop out. Nevertheless, I enjoyed Daisy's deepening acquaintance with Alec and I thought there were some really funny bits. I just discovered that I had neglected to review this book when I read it.

    Very interesting time in history… When cars were new. Phones were new at that time and young ladies did not stay in hotels they stayed in private homes. Well-bred ladies were just starting to get jobs and bobbing their hair. Homosexuality & infidelity show up. Nice little romance between Daisy and Alex the CID Scotland Yard policeman. I probably won't read more n this series..definitely some enjoyable bits though. Very interesting time in history… When cars were new.

    I've read this series very much out of order, but I wanted to get a feeling for the first encounters that Daisy and Alec had. This is good. Lady Valeria is a serious Termagant, a Domestic Despot, with the side chuckle of being apt to use alliteration, even in the midst of her rants. Too bad that neither Daisy nor Alec were able to be witnesses to her eventual major smack-down, from both her unregarded daughter and her so-closely-coddled son.

    I picked this up the other night because I was wanting a mystery and it's set during the 1920s, probably my favorite historical era. It was just okay - a quick read for a lazy weekend. Although some of the historical details were interesting, the story wasn't too compelling and there were modern sensibilities that seemed out of place.

    I think I'm going to give up on this series. It looks to be one of those series where some sexual perversion is always woven in to the mystery and I'd rather not fill my head with those types of imaginings.

    I enjoy Daisy Dalrymple stories and this one was no exception. The only negative was that I was listening to the book on CD and the person they had reading it had no idea about English accents. She tried but there were so many errors that could easily have been caught and weren’t. It was a wee bit distracting from the story but not enough to make me hate the book.

    Cozy mystery set in England in the 1920’s. A missing parlor maid is discovered murdered and buried in an estate garden when the protagonist, Daisy Dalrymple, is visiting there on a magazine assignment. The mystery becomes an upstairs-downstairs class conflict involving the upperclass gentry residing there vs everyone else. I enjoyed the story, but could’ve done with a lot less of the flapper-era vernacular, much of which I had no idea what the words meant.

This time she's off to Cheshire and Occles Hall, which thanks to her old school chum, Bobbie Parslow, she has been able to wrangle an invite. Bobbie's mother, Lady Valeria, is notoriously bad tempered and also very protective of her unnaturally good looking son, Sebastian. In fact, the first thing that Daisy hears upon arriving in the picture postcard perfect village of Occleswich is the raging feud between Lady Valeria and Stan Moss, the local car mechanic. Stan wants to put in a gas station, and Lady Valeria will not hear of it blighting her perfect town. Stan has had a rough time of it of late, his daughter Grace, who worked up at the Hall as a parlor maid and took care of him in her spare time, ran off with a travelling salesman a few months back. Daisy instantly loves the hall and sees the picture possibilities for her article and is grateful to Bobbie and her father, Sir Reginald. The Tudor facade hides much turmoil and secrets though. Sir Reginald has an obsession with his Dairy so is rarely seen by anyone. Sebastian's famed good looks did nothing to prepare Daisy for the Adonis that is brought before her. Then there's the family's secretary, Ben Goodman, who was injured in the war and who Sebastian is very protective of. But what lies in the family tree is not important to Daisy who is there to capture the house, not the inhabitants, for her article. Daisy is lucky enough to get a tour of the grounds and the famed winter garden, in blooms though it is not quite spring. Owen Morgan, the assistant gardener and jilted boyfriend of Grace, is showing Daisy the wonders of blossoms in winter when Daisy notices a disturbance in the flowerbed. A disturbance which happens to be Grace Moss. She didn't run off with that travelling salesman after all. It's not long before the local coppers decide that Owen Morgan is their man. They claim that the Welshman lost his temper when Daisy declared she was pregnant and in love with Sebastian and he hide her among the flowers. But Daisy knows this is wrong. She was there when Owen found Grace, and the conclusion the cops have reached couldn't be farther than the truth. Daisy starts to dig and soon finds out all manner of secrets the family was concealing, none of which really have a bearing on the case. Fearing for her safety and sensing she is once more in over her head, her old friend Phillip Petrie comes with the cavalry of Inspector Fletcher, there to get to the bottom of things and fix the mess the local police have made of this case. But when Bobbie disappears and the locals start to close ranks, it looks like the answer might never be found and that Daisy might be excommunicated from Occles Hall without her article finished. But which is worse? Not finding the killer or looser her job? There's something fun and infectious about Carola Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple Mysteries. They're the quick little mystery fix that you need on a cold winter's day to while away the hours. I am drawn to them because they do have an Agatha Christie feel to them, and most Christie novels, even if I haven't read them, have been adapted to death so that the killers and plots are second nature to us bibliophiles. Therefore it's like fresh new Christie, but a period feel with a modern sensibility. Also I felt that unlike the first installment, the cast of characters was not so unwieldy, and that you grasped the basic suspect pool fairly fast. Also, how much fun is it that we actually get to have the inquest in this one? That staple of British mysteries was sadly lacking in the first book. On a final note I'd like to say, how cool is Daisy's job. Sure she's "tarnishing" the family name by working for a living. But getting to travel to all these great houses, which Carola Dunn brings such life and reality to, makes me just wish for more time to pick up the next book and then the next.
