This is the second book in the Daisy Thorne series by Louise R. Innes who actually lives in Surrey, England where she’s set the fictional village of Edgemead. You can read about her in her Goodreads bio I’ve linked. Subscribers to her newsletter can get the prequel for this series sent to them when they sign up. (I have it and keep meaning to read it!)
I’m really getting more into the series now with the second book. Daisy got to interact with more of her work friends/employees, and maybe Paul’s gonna eventually see that she can really be of some use. I liked that the story was village-centered this time which gave a look into some of the other businesses.
My Goodreads review:
This book was even better than the first! By the time it was done, I felt like I knew Daisy and her employees so much better. She got to interact quite a bit more with Penny and Krish one-on-one this time around which always helps to build up more good background for the characters and made me see that Daisy was not only an awesome employer, but she was a good friend to her people she worked with.
I had absolutely no idea whodunit, but I was happy enough to read along and fall down each rabbit hole investigating right along with Daisy-and actually toward the end, Paul let her in on it a little more. I think the two could work really well together, and I’m wondering if he’s caving a little on that. Stay tuned, right? I’m definitely looking forward to the next book which comes out in September, and it’s a Christmas theme!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
