Frothy fun. ( )

When Daisy receives a concert invitation from her neighbor and asks Alex to join her, she once again finds her embroiled a case. At the concert, the soprano sips her drink and collapses. The authorities immediately recognize that she was poisoned, but was it really cyanide or something else? ( )

One of the earlier books, Daisy and Alex are growing close indeed. Once again, she becomes enmeshed in a murder case. She invited Alex to a concert and the mezzo soprano died in the middle of the performance.
The mystery is solvable, perhaps too easily? But the story is enjoyable. I like the setting and the characters, and the narrator reads the story well. ( )

nicely written fluff mystery, with good period details and interesting characters. Pretty good mystery too! ( )

Daisy and Alec finally get to go on a date to a concert at the Albert Hall. Unsurprisingly the mezzo-soprano, also Daisy's next door neighbour, drops dead during the concert and it looks like she was murdered. Alec and his team take on the case and Alec, unsuccessfully tries to prevent Daisy from getting too involved. This is another fun and fast read, and I love how the relationships of the main characters develops between the books. ( )
