2014 book 165

Carola Dunn's Murder on the Flying Scotsman
The fourth Daisy Dalrymple book features a murder on a TRAIN! And there are tons of money-grubbing horrible relatives to suspect! Now, I did find it hard to believe that so many people would casually chat about their horrible plans to get an old man to change his will to a perfect stranger on a train (ok, Daisy knows two of them, but there are like twelve), but whatever, maybe they're supposed to be extra-gauche? At least we get to know the Chief Inspector's adorable daughter, who's running away from her racist grandma and comes to hang out with Daisy on the train. These mysteries are pretty silly/light in terms of plotting, but I really enjoy them and hope Daisy and the Chief progress to making out soon. B+.
