The Winter Garden Mystery ~~ Carola Dunn

The Winter Garden Mystery by Carola Dunn
In this second installment of Carola Dunn's cozy mystery series set in 1923 England, plucky Daisy Dalrymple embarks on another assignment for Town and Country magazine and discovers that daffodil bulbs aren't all that's buried in a country estate's flower bed...

The merest hint of spring has arrived in Cheshire, and so has Daisy Dalrymple. The feisty flapper is a breath of fresh air to the occupants of gloomy Occles Hall, among them her former school chum, wallflower Bobbie Parslow, and the thorny mistress of the manor, Lady Valeria. While photographing the barren grounds behind the house, Daisy suspects someone has been digging amidst the soil's first green shoots--and promptly unearths the corpse of Grace Moss, the missing parlor maid. So begins a harrowing romp as the dead woman's shocking secret is revealed--leaving Daisy to catch a killer before she's pushing up daisies...

Yawn. What a waste of time. No mystery here. Just a bunch of unnecessary drama (from characters you don't even care to know about)that is unrelated to the supposed mystery. The last part of the book is taken up with yet another author feeling the need to insert something in that derails the focus off of everything else going on and becomes this sidetrack to the plot that predictably drags on... until suddenly the only obvious suspect, and, yes, it is far too obvious, suddenly comes to her mind as the murderer. Though that could have been done at the beginning of the book based on what she drew the conclusion from. Sigh. What a waste of a historical so-called mystery. Might as well be a modern novel about nothing.
