So far I have read eight books in this series, and this one is my favorite Daisy, who was delightfully superior and full of herself in the first book, has to deal with her flawed family, most of whom are suspects in this new murder And she painfully grows up a little bit The main reason that I love this book is Daisy s father, Lord Hastings, a wonderful three dimensional man who has many of the same virtues and foolish weaknesses that you and I have, but much exaggerated By the way, I much prefer the British international versions of these books I think that young American readers can delight in the sometimes puzzling differences in language.

I thought this book was a great book to read but not as good as the last one murder most unladylike When Daisy and Hazel go to Daisy house Falling Ford for the Easter brake for Daisy s birthday little do they know that ther is murder coming just around the corner This was a good book for a teen, sort of Nancy Drew kind of book, but I was just getting back to reading, finished in one night, Enjoyed it. Brilliant book.
