Poppy McGowan returns in this sequel to Digging Up Dirt (which I reviewed last year). I’ve been eagerly waiting for this!
Poppy is a TV researcher who is happiest behind the scenes. When a photograph of her with rock god Nathan Castle pops up on celebrity gossip sites, she’s not happy about the media feeding frenzy that follows.
Nor is she pleased that Daisy, Nathan’s elderly mother and best friend and neighbour of her Aunty Mary, is found bleeding and unconscious in her bedroom. While Poppy tries to make sense of it all, a murder occurs outside Daisy’s flat and the police finally get involved.
Poppy is a great character, feisty yet sensible. I enjoy the way she juggles the various strands in her life – renovating a house, researching for a children’s TV show, being part of a huge and inquisitive family – while trying to clear her boyfriend, Tol, of the murder.
It’s ripper story and moves along at a cracking pace. More Poppy please, Pamela Hart!
