DAISY MORROW Super-sleuth!: The Root of All Evil: Book One of the Daisy Morrow series, a Cozy Mystery with a wicked side!
by R T Green
According to Daisy, nothing is ever quite what it seems. In her case, that’s the truest thing ever spoken.
Daisy moved to the village a few miles from Kings Lynn in Norfolk a year ago, after a very unfortunate incident in London made her decide village life was the best option. Now she trundles around on a mobility scooter, even though she doesn’t actually need to. She’s adapted to country life quite well, although she rather unkindly refers to the village of Great Wiltingham as the ‘place people go to wilt’.
It’s not entirely populated by retired folk... there are some families, and even a few young couples. But it has to be said the village has more elderly residents than anything else. It’s a beautiful place, with a duck-pond that’s more like a lake, a second pond at the other end of the village, and a lot of open green spaces.
Daisy has been married to Aidan for thirty-five years. No one in the village knows that, because although he spends most of the time in Daisy’s thatched cottage, he has his own place just around the corner.
Given what Daisy used to do before she retired, and the very unfortunate incident in London, they both decided it was best people didn’t know just how much of a couple they actually were.
Daisy is seventy-one now. But for her, old habits die hard. And for some strange reason, trouble seems to follow her around. It’s been a peaceful twelve months settling into village life, but that’s about to end...
‘The Root of all Evil’ is the first book in the Daisy Morrow series. After some strange goings-on and a murder in the village, Daisy and Aiden, together with a young police-woman called Sarah, whose curiosity gets the better of her, set about solving the mystery.
They discover the village is being secretly abused by some very unsavoury people, a fact Daisy has very good reason to hate, so she sets off on a personal vendetta against those responsible. Yes indeed, old habits die hard!
And it all begins with a rose bush, mysteriously uprooted in the middle of the night...
