Daisy is planning a relaxing evening out with Alec, not expecting that it's going to turn into a murder mystery with the victim being an unpleasant mezzo soprano who is coincidentally Daisy's neighbour. There's a lot of people with motive to kill her and things keep getting complicated with a lot of red herrings and some other unpleasant people to deal with.

It's not a bad read, didn't like it as much as the others in the series but it's fun reading and she does get the period feel well, she reads like a lot of the authors of that era that I've read before. ( )

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! ( )
