Synopsis

Winter Garden Mystery by Carola Dunn

So who put the body in with the spring bulbs?The merest hint of spring has arrived in Cheshire, and so has young reporter Daisy Dalrymple. The feisty flapper's visit is a breath of fresh air for gloomy Occles Hall. But while photographing the rather barren grounds, Daisy spots that someone's been digging among the first green shoots - and much to her horror unearths the corpse of missing parlour maid Grace Moss.So begins an extraordinary adventure, as first the dead woman's shocking secret is revealed and then Daisy swiftly realizes she needs to catch the killer before she herself is left pushing up the daisies . . .Praise for the Daisy Dalrymple series:'Manners (P G Wodehouse-style) and mystery get equal time in a low-key story with considerable charm.' Kirkus Reviews'Engaging . . . Dunn's style gives an entertaining spark.' Publishers Weekly

Reviews

All the classic elements of the period 'cozy
are present in this new mystery

...but Dunn uses these conventions to paint an engrossing picture of the uneasy, shell-shocked period after World War I -- cuddly enough but with some notable sharp edge . -- The Oregonian
