Poppy McGowan is a TV researcher for an ABC television children’s program. Through her job she
meets lots of interesting people.
Poppy is pondering her relationship status. Her boyfriend Tol, an archaeologist, is about to leave for
a dig in Jordan. She may not see him for years.
While her house is being renovated, which is taking longer than expected, she has been living with
her parents. Her Aunt Mary has recently had surgery and her mother volunteers Poppy to move in
and care for her as she recovers. Poppy can’t refuse.
Aunt Mary lives in an exclusive retirement complex.
Daisy Montgomery is Mary’s oldest and best friend, they are also neighbours. They lived quite an
exciting life in London in their younger years, as Poppy now discovers.
When Daisy doesn’t visit when expected, Mary sends Poppy with the spare key to check on her.
Poppy finds daisy unconscious and bleeding in her bathroom.
The police dismiss this as an accident, but as more events follow, Poppy and Mary believe Daisy was
To complicate events even further, Daisy’s son is Nathan Castle a famous rock god.
Throw in a murder, family secrets, poisoning, bribery, and blackmail, plus Tol is now a suspect.
Naturally Poppy investigates. She can’t leave this to the police!
Poppy is a vibrant, intelligent, fun character who narrates the story with humour. Aunt Mary and Daisy
are wonderful characters too.
It is a great read with so many suspects and possibilities that keep you guessing to the end.
The book is written in a way that is easy to read. It’s entertaining and you relate to all the characters.
This is the second Poppy McGowan mystery story. This book stands alone. The first is Digging Up
Dirt which I definitely plan to read.
I am now a fan of Poppy McGowan and I look forward to her next adventure.
