Picture 1920s England. This is where the Daisy Dalrymple series starts, when Daisy is an up and coming journalist/author in a male-dominated field. She's young and lively. And when she's at the parts for the Wentwater family on its estate, she witnesses a murder. When Detective Alec Fletcher from Scotland Yard come on scene, there's some chemistry between them, a possible romance. And even if you're royalty, things take center stage and go on the hot seat. It's up to Daisy to figure out about the murder, with or without Fletcher's help to set the record straight. Beautiful history and culture to set the scene for the entire series. A delightful read.
