5.0 out of 5 stars A favourite Daisy story, 12 May 2012
This review is from: Die Laughing (Daisy Dalrymple) (Paperback)
I have all the Daisy Dalrymple books and this is one of my favourites. It's just like the Poirot story where the dentist is found dead in his chair but not as intricate as an Agatha Christie novel and much more fun to solve with Daisy around.

Daisy and Alec are such a lovely couple and we learn a lot more about their happy family life and the one big problem of trying to keep the senior Mrs. Fletcher in hand. It may be that in this book a solution to this problem is not far off. Alec has the finances all worked out and Mrs. Fletcher senior the baggage but you'll have to read the story to find out exactly what happens.

What makes this series work is the wonderful attention to detail and to the social history of the period before the Second World War. The social and cultural backdrop to the actual crime is as fascinating as the solution at the end.

Perfect reading for a summer Sunday afternoon and once you've tried one Daisy book you'll find you must read the whole series.
