Bk14 of the Daisy Dalrymple series & Daisy,Alec, Belinda & Belindas friend,Deva,are on a seaside holiday in Westcombe,Devonshire.When the local, married, "ladies man" is found dead at the bottom of a cliff,there's no shortage of suspects in the small town. Then Alec is outed as a Scotland Yard detective & has to give up his holiday to hunt a murderer. I loved the setting of this, plus Sid the beachcomber & Daisy being all maternal. #daisysdarlings

Bambolina_81 I just bought 2 of these today 😊 I've never tried her but loved the covers 😍 3y

Bk13 in the Daisy Dalrymple series finds Daisy pregnant & going to Haverhill estate for her former flatmate, Lucy Fotheringay's wedding. But Lucy's Aunt Eva, who had a hobby of finding out people's secrets, is found strangled one morning & Alec is put in charge of the case. Then Lord Aubrey Fotheringay is found poisoned in the conservatory.
I loved this one, you find out more about Lucy in this one, she's one of my favourites. #daisysdarlings

JazzFeathers And it has a lovely cover too ^_^ 3y

I absolutely love the covers of the Daisy Dalrymple series! They're so much better in print form, my eraeder is a kobo and doesn't have a colour screen so the pictures are b/w, the colours in these makes them so much prettier. Very Art Deco! I'm gonna have to get the whole series in book form before they change the damn covers, like what's happened with a few of my series. #daisysdarlings

Jess_Read_This These are gorgeous! 3y
JazzFeathers Pretty darn good covers, l agree :) 3y
Verity I have them all on my kindle, and the first in print as well and I keep having to resist the urge to buy the rest in paperback too! 3y

Bk12 in the Daisy Dalrymple (Fletcher) series sees Daisy at the dentist with a raging toothache, but upon arrival, finds the doctor unmistakably dead. Everyone wants to write it off as an accident except Daisy, but no ones listening. So she decides to investigate herself. Cue arguments with her husband about the impropriety & her mother about unladylike behavior, and it makes me glad I wasn't young then! #daisysdarlings

JazzFeathers Sounds particularly promising :) 3y

Kicking off my Saturday reading with the next book in the Daisy Dalrymple series. My brain just isn't ready for Wuthering Heights yet! Xmas 1923 & Daisy takes her new family, including the MIL, to a Cornish estate for the holiday. But Alec is forced into action when the body of the chaplain is discovered.
Looking forward to some more Daisy & Alec! #daisysdarlings

JazzFeathers I'm reading the 1920s too this weekend. Miss Fisher! :) 3y
Lizpixie I'm dying to do a Miss Fisher reread, but I can't justify it seeing as I've only just read them in Dec/Jan and I have so many books on my tbr! I'm consoling myself with Daisy instead @JazzFeathers 3y
Jess_Read_This I just love this cover! 💕😍💕 3y

Bk8 in the Daisy Dalrymple series is another winner. Daisy has been hired to write an article about the British Natural History Museum when there's a jewel robbery followed by the murder of the head of the Mineralogical section of the museum. Throw in a Carpathian Arch Duke demanding the return of his family's ruby & a few obsessed professors & Alec has his hands full, not only dealing with them but keeping Daisy out of harms way. #daisysdarlings

JazzFeathers Well, that sure is an interesting cover ;) l'm liking the sound of this series :) 3y

Please tell me I'm not the only one who buys multiple copies in different formats of the same book? I love having the print form in my bookcases but I'm impatient enough to want to read it now, hence the ebook. These Daisy Dalrymple books are so much fun to read, they're like Tim tams, you can't have just one. Bk7 in the series is about a poison pen, an atheist vicar & the murder of a professor with a stone angel. Highly recommend. #daisysdarlings

Bookworm-Bobbie I do this too! I'll download some thing on my kindle and if I really enjoyed it, I'll buy the book. #Impatientlittens 😂 3y
Megabooks I have Station Eleven in e, hardback, and audio! 3y
Dogearedcopy I will buy multiple formats; but not because I'm impatient, but because I love the cover art of some books (so I buy an e-book edition to read while keeping a copy of the print on a shelf); or a print/e- copy of an audiobook because I want/need to see the actual words! 3y
LauraBrook I do this all the time - sometimes it's bc I forget I have the ebook, or the hardcover vs paperback covers are totally different and I forget, or I just liked it, or... 🤓 3y
Reviewsbylola I do that sometimes but I always rent my ebooks. I can't being myself to buy them anymore for some reason! 3y

Onto Bk7 in the Daisy Dalrymple series, I swear I'll wait for the next one in print form! I love my kobo glo, but I wish it was a colour screen, this cover is so brilliant with all the blues, reds and greens.
Daisy's brother-in-law asks for her help when he starts receiving poison pen letters. Taking Belinda, Alec's daughter, she goes to Kent for a visit, but the letter writer suddenly gets deadly & Daisy is next in his list. #daisysdarlings

JazzFeathers This sounds very exciting. I need to read some #setinthe1920s British stories ^_^ 3y

Yes, I know.Impatience is my middle name.I got caught up in the Daisy spell & just had to read the next one right away! Bk6 in the Daisy Dalrymple series is my favourite one so far. Set at the rowing regatta in Henley-On-Thames, Daisy is staying at her aunts house to watch her cousin row in the race. But one of the crew is murdered, with no shortage of suspects because the dead man was so unpopular. Beautiful setting & lots of fun. #daisysdarlings

JenlovesJT47 How does the series as a whole stack up to Phryne Fisher? I've read the first one in the series and really liked it, just haven't gotten around to reading anymore yet. I love anything set in the 1920s! 3y
JazzFeathers @JenlovesJT47 lf l'm allowed a bit of shameless plug, may you be interested in my own novella, Give in to the Feeling, set in 1924 Chicago and including ghosts? ;) 3y
JenlovesJT47 @JazzFeathers of course! Anything set in the 20s is good for me! 😁 3y
Lizpixie @JenlovesJT47 they're very similar, both about a young woman going against custom in the 1920s, I think the main difference is in tone, Daisy comes off as very innocent whereas Phryne has a been there, done that and enjoyed it! vibe. Phryne has a sensual element and Daisy is the innocent English maiden. I think it's the English vs Australian state of mind, though most English I know can be quite raunchy in private! 3y
JenlovesJT47 @Lizpixie thanks!! I need to read more of the series. I love Phryne so much that I'm reading that series for a second time. The audiobook narrator captures Phryne's essence perfectly! 3y

I got impatient after buying this book on bookdepository.com and went and bought it on my kobo as well.Waiting was never my talent. Oh well, now I'll have a pretty copy for my shelf & a copy to read in waiting rooms. Bk5 in the Daisy Dalrymple series is lots of fun,Phillip Petrie has given up asking Daisy to marry him & has fallen head over heels for an American heiress.When she gets kidnapped, he rushes straight to Daisy for help. #daisysdarlings

TheLondonBookworm I think that's the best way to do it ☺️☺️ 3y
Lizpixie @TheLondonBookworm of course you need favourite books in multiple formats! Doesn't everyone have their book in hardback, paperback, ebook & audiobook?🤔 3y
TheLondonBookworm @Lizpixie I was under the impression that that was just standard procedure 😍😍😂😂😂 3y
