What I Just Finished Reading
I got all of the Daisy Dalrymple ebooks the library had, in case I liked them. I did so I've so I've just finished Death at Wentwater Court, The Winter Garden Mystery and The Bloody Tower. The series is set in the 1920s (but written in the modern day) and Daisy has a tendency to fall over dead bodies and be instrumental in solving the murder. Alec is a Scotland Yard DCI who is actually being paid to solve the murder. And fancies Daisy. The third book was number 16 in the series, so all of a sudden they're married with twin babies. Although nothing much changes. That one was set in the Tower of London, which I really need to get round to going to. The second one was set near Chester and I was in/coming back from Chester while I read it. Daisy spent a day in the city and talked about walking the wall and what she'd seen and I can tell you it's accurate, because I'd just done the same thing!
What I'm Currently Reading
Gone West, which is book 20 in the series. No one's died yet, but we've met all the suspects, so the murder must be soon. Since Daisy's gone to stay with an old school friend I don't know how the narrative will get Alex there.
What I'm Reading Next
The county does have nearly all of the remaining Daisy Dalrymple books, although annoyingly none of them my local library, so I will have to pay £1 for each of them. But I think I might be Daisy Dalrympled out by the end of this book. So I'll be going back to Little Men, which I was getting through slowly at a chapter a night.
