In the novel The Sittaford Mystery, Miss Davis is the nurse of the invalid Robert Gardner.

Robert's wife Jennifer Gardner disliked Miss Davis intensely but Robert thought of her as a wonderful nurse. While investigating the death of Captain Trevelyan, Emily Trefusis thought that while Miss Davis appeared like a highly professional nurse, there might be something going on between her and Robert. She proved it with a subterfuge she used often. After seeing Robert, she "left" her gloves behind. Rushing back into the room to get them, she found Robert and Miss Davis sitting hand in hand. However she decided not to tell anyone about it as she did not think it was relevant to her case.
