The feisty flapper's visit is a breath of fresh air for gloomy Occles Hall. But while photographing the rather barren grounds, Daisy spots that someone's been digging among the first green shoots - and much to her horror unearths the corpse of missing parlour maid Grace Moss. So begins an extraordinary adventure, as first the dead woman's shocking secret is revealed and then Daisy swiftly realizes she needs to catch the killer before she herself is left pushing up the daisies ...Praise for the Daisy Dalrymple series: 'Manners (P G Wodehouse-style) and mystery get equal time in a low-key story with considerable charm.' Kirkus Reviews 'Engaging ...Dunn's style gives an entertaining spark.' Publishers WeeklyHide synopsis

With her clear and candid blue eyes and interested expression, the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple finds her friendly manner leads all kinds of people to confide in her. She doesn't mind, she enjoys it, but Scotland Yard's DCI Fletcher finds it very exasperating that the young lady is always getting information that he can't in the murder cases that come his way. Daisy is writing articles, with photographs, on great estates that she can wangle invitations to, and so on a freezing January day finds herself in the winter garden of the family estate of a friend from finishing school. An unexpectedly dying gardenia plant leads to the unearthing of the body of a young woman thought to have run away to London some weeks past. When the local constable shows a strong desire to pin the crime on the grieving under-gardener, the dead girl's beau, Daisy indignantly summons Fletcher.
