In the short story Problem at Pollensa Bay, Mrs Adela Chester is on holiday on Mallorca with her son Basil. They live in Holm Park, Devon. After hearing Nina Wycherley praise Parker Pyne's abilities, she approached him to help with her son who was seeing a woman she considered unsuitable.

Adela Chester is described as about fifty five with grey hair of a pretty tone. She dresses sensibly but not fashionably in a tweed coat and skirt and has the "comfortable self-possession with marks an Englishwoman used to much travelling abroad."
