I love Daisy Dalrymple if only for her name! Her name is what drew me to the books, however, Daisy is delightful, charming and very intelligent. And she is crazy about Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard. She is on the way to Scotland for an assignment for the magazine she works for, on the famous express train, the Flying Scotsman, when she discovers that Belinda Fletcher, Alec's daughter from his first marriage (he's a widower), has stowed away. She takes her in hand, buys her ticket and tries to figure out what to say to Belinda's Grandma by telegram. Belinda has run away from home because her Grandmother refused to let her go to a classmate's house that happens to be from India. This time instead of Daisy finding the dead body, Belinda does. It gets more complicated and Daisy asks them to bring in Alec to investigate since he is in the north of England, anyway. He and Sgt. Tom Tring and Constable Ernie Piper arrive to find Daisy has already discovered a lot of knowledge of the case.

I enjoy this series. It takes place in the 1920's, shortly after the Great War and things are changing. The author has a charming character in Daisy and other engaging characters as well. I'm looking forward to read the next book. I highly recommend this book and series for a pleasant getaway in your mind.

In this episode, Daisy finds herself aboard The Flying Scotsman, a train heading for Scotland. Hunky Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher's daughter Belinda has run away from home and has run straight into Daisy. Daisy has run into an old acquaintance and her odious family aboard the train...all looking for money from a rich relative....there is no loss of suspects when one of the party is found dead, murdered, as Daisy had correctly proclaimed. Alec is summoned and quickly responds, as his daughter may be in danger...she has befriended the victim and she may know something about the murder...another entertaining addition to this delightful series.....

In the fourth installment of Carola Dunn's cozy mystery series set in 1923 England, diligent Daisy Dalrymple sets out for Scotland on assignment for Town and Country magazine -- and finds herself sharing a rail compartment with squabbling would-be heirs, a stowaway...and a corpse! The unsuspecting Daisy Dalrymple's biggest worry, upon embarking on a journey to Edinburgh, is that she's forgotten to bring a book. She's perfectly content to pass the time daydreaming about Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher -- until she discovers Alec's daughter Belinda has followed her on board! Now Daisy has her hands full, between the pint-sized runaway and a bickering Scottish clan en route to the deathbed of the family scion.

But before the express reaches its first station stop, one of the greedy McGowans has turned up dead. Is it murder? Daisy's willing to bet her first-class ticket on it. After all, the victim is the appointed heir-to-be -- and she's sharing the rails with an entire family of suspects who have everything to gain by his death. Now, with her precocious young charge in tow, Daisy is determined to unmask the murdererous passenger -- and reach her destination alive...
