I read this book in two days while on holiday . It was a brilliant read lots of humor between the main characters and a good story line . Worth reading look forward to book two by j.l.Simpson.
A really good read, although Daisy is a bit annoying, there are twists throughout and good background stories which will keep you guessing. Well worth a read.
Definitely going to read more about Daisy Dunlop !!
A murder /mystery with a marvellous funny side.
Solomon is a private investigator. His best friend and brother in arms, from their time in the English army, has called in a favour. His wife wants to be a heir hunter, Solomon is supposed to show her how boring that will be, and keep her safe. That will prove to be easier said than done.
Daisy is determined to prove she is up to the challenge of her new job. Dealing with the obnoxious, and secretive Solomon will be the worst part of it. Her task is to find a missing Lord who willing disappeared years ago. Solomon's case is for an insurance company who has had some strange claims lately.
Who's case is it that has turned more dangerous than was expected.
The lead characters are so much fun. I love both of them. This is NOT a romance. But it is an exciting and entertaining read. I look forward to more.
This novel is fast paced, has lots of action and an interesting story line. The portrayal of Daisy’s character is sometimes confusing. Although she is the mother of a 14 year old and enjoys a stable, loving relationship with her son’s father, she does not demonstrate the insight, maturity, ability to consider consequences or deal with frustration that would be necessary to sustain these relationships. In fact, her thought processes and self-absorbed behaviour is more in keeping with an adolescent than with a woman with the life experience attributed to her character.
Daisy’s husband is portrayed as being besotted with her, supportive, protective and tolerant. However, Daisy’s frequent references to activities her husband will and will not let her do give the impression that he is controlling and treats her like a child.
As the novel progresses, it becomes clear that Paul is also besotted with Daisy and devoted to her, why he would be so is not well developed in the story.
Although it is generally hard to like Daisy, her hearty appetite, disdain for healthy food options and passion for high heels are endearing.
The use of profanities and descriptive accounts of Daisy’s sexual encounters with her husband seem somewhat at odds with the otherwise ‘cosy’ feel of this novel, less would certainly have more impact in these aspects of the novel.
Despite the minor issues described above, this was a fun novel and certainly worth reading.
I was given a copy by the author in return for an honest review
Daisy Dunlop is a heroine like no other, at least none that I’ve been introduced to. She’s very happily married to Paul, smart, sassy and acts on impulse which very often lands her in hot water. After Daisy’s several doomed career attempts Paul enlists the very reluctant help of his best friend, Solomon.
Now Daisy has a new job opportunity which Paul hopes will keep her out of trouble. With her eclectic taste in clothes and red spiky heels she hasn’t quite got the hang of dressing suitably as she finds out in short order. Heir hunting quickly morphs into something else entirely and Daisy manages to get herself and her new boss into all kinds of troublesome situations. Combined with Solomon’s investigation into insurance fraud they uncover much more than either of them could have imagined. As the plot unravels, the mysterious and handsome Solomon and the madcap that is daisy deal with dead bodies, shootings and bombs.
It’s non-stop action all the way in J.L. Simpson’s witty and very amusing debut tale of mystery solving. The interaction between Daisy and Solomon is extremely entertaining as he struggles unsuccessfully to keep her out of danger. Daisy is her own woman though, and woe betide any man who thinks otherwise.
It’s a really nice twist to have the passionate romance between our heroine and her husband, who are madly in love and have a teenage son. A son who can’t cope with the thought of his parents having sex…
