After having tried numerous career options Daisy Dunlop is working with her husband’s best friend, Irish PI Solomon Liffey with strict instructions from Paul to keep Daisy safe. Which is much easier said than done, as Solomon finds out to his cost. Daisy can be somewhat of a liability. Strong willed and impulsive, but extremely likeable, she forges ahead regardless and Solomon has his work cut out to keep his promise to Paul.
Daisy’s heir hunting job offers are sadly lacking so she has to content herself with helping Solomon out with a case, which unfortunately necessitates sessions at the gym. In lycra. Daisy is far from overjoyed and is thankful to receive a letter from a Candy Mars asking her to investigate the disappearance of her prize-winning poodle. There’s only one problem; Daisy is terrified of dogs. She enlists the help of Cliff Richards, a homeless man who has a way with animals, and who helped her out during her previous case.
Solomon’s troubles are only just beginning though, as he gets a call telling him his ex, Lisa, is in police custody for drug dealing and his three-year old daughter, Molly, is at the police station. When a dead body found at Lisa’s flat points to a connection with Daisy’s missing dog, Solomon and Daisy join forces in solving another fast paced case filled with action, danger, suspense and a lot of laughs.
Another character driven and fun escapade with Daisy, our unconventional heroine, and the ever mysterious and sexy Solomon as he strives to keep Daisy out of trouble and Molly safe, while trying to find the connections linking their respective cases. Does the answer lie in Solomon’s still secretive past? The narrative moves along at a cracking pace and the crime and suspense aspect is balanced out by the humour, wit and great banter between the main characters.
In the first Daisy mystery, Lost Cause, we learned that after several attempts to settle on a career, Daisy Dunlop had decided to become an heir hunter. Her beloved husband Paul supports this plan, but insists that she train with his best friend, the enigmatic Solomon, a private detective. Lost & Found picks up the story with Daisy on the trail of a missing champion purebred poodle, while Solomon takes on full-time parent duties for three-year-old daughter Molly when his former girlfriend is arrested. As he investigates, both he and Daisy realize that their cases are starting to intersect even while the dead bodies multiply.
As with the previous book, I loved all the scenes with Daisy. When she’s in the driver’s seat, the witty banter, loving and R-rated relationship with her husband Paul, and even the way they wind up teenage son Sherman (“Ew. God, Dad. Ew! I don’t want to be thinking about Mam and you naked all day.”) are dead on.
There were a couple of things that didn’t ring absolutely true to me this time. Daisy’s banter and inner monologues were always entertaining. But some of the other characters just didn’t sound like they could possibly be real. For example, I find it hard to believe that lowlife drug-dealer Nobby (even in disguise) would greet a woman with the words, “Scarlett, you’re stunning.” Also, there were a couple of plot holes.Read more ›
