2014 book 160

Carola Dunn's The Winter Garden Mystery
The second Daisy Dalrymple book is in the same mold as the first--Daisy goes to write a story on a fancy old house, and stumbles onto a MURDER! It's a very different cast of characters, though. I really like the writing in these, even if this particular one doesn't have enough realistic suspects to be super compelling. There is, however (spoilers!), an adorable secretly gay couple (this is revealed toward the end, officially, but is telegraphed pretty early on). Anyway, I like this series a lot, even if the plotting here isn't super tight. B/B+.
