2014 book 168

Carola Dunn's Dead in the Water
Boy, this is an easy series to breeze right through, thanks to the deft writing and likable characters. Likable except for the murder victim here, that is! The 6th Daisy Dalrymple book finds Daisy and Alec in the midst of a murder investigation when they're just innocently trying to have a weekend enjoying some boat races (and hang out with more of Daisy's relatives). Then a super nasty and rude crew-man suddenly dies! I actually liked how this one ended, and the nice thing about historical mysteries is that they can't help their shoddy police work, b/c it was like a hundred years ago and they barely had forensics (fingerprints are the new hotness in these books). Anyway, more of the same if you're into that sort of thing, which I am.
