Daisy's going to be an heir hunter - or so she thinks. She has jumped from one job to another and his is her latest new job. Her husband, the besotted Paul, asks his ex commander and best mate, Solomon, to take her under his wing and keep her save. Solomon is an enigma, Daisy knows little about him except she doesn't trust or like him and so the action packed story begins and the characters develop as we go..
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.

Loved it. Initially I thought it was going to be Stephanie Plum's not so interesting cousin. Wrong. Great storyline, great humour and a great read.

Definitely going to read more about Daisy Dunlop !!

I gave this book five stars as I loved the quirky Daisy Dunlop. Solomon plays her opposite brilliantly, the dark mystery against her light open personality make for an intriguing partnership. The plot was good as were the sub characters, with a few twists and and some light moments this was a thoroughly enjoyable read. I shall certainly be on the look out for more of Daisy Dunlop in the future.

★★★★★
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.

Good story, good characters - although was a bit confused with Daisy, she has a teenage son but acts as if she's a teenager herself, although I did find that endearing! There were enough twists and turns with Solomon along the way and the ending was so intriguing that I need to read more to see how things work out!

Format: Paperback
Let me declare first of all that I received a paperback copy of this novel through the First Reader giveaway on Goodreads.

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…
