4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Enjoyable Read, 15 Nov. 2012

This review is from: The Poisonous Seed: A Frances Doughty Mystery (The Frances Doughty Mysteries) (Kindle Edition)
I read this on holiday having got it very cheap on the Kindle. I wasn't expecting too much never having come across the book or the author before but I found myself quite engrossed.

Frances Doughty is an engaging character and so were those around her. She works in the pharmacy owned by her father. She almost became a trained pharmacist herself but had to give up to do what women were expected to do, namely nurse her sick brother and afterwards her poorly father.

The story revolves around the death of 'a gentleman' and the medicine he took, which came from the Doughty's pharmacy is looked on suspiciously. Frances has to clear her father's name if she is not to see their world crumble into ignominy.

There are quite a few strands to the story and I got a little confused with the who is who but it all came together at the end.

I will definitely try book 2 of the series.
