Louise comes to the Bethesda Garden Club's famous spring plant sale hoping to get great footage for her public television show, Gardening With Nature. She should have known she'd land in a nest of publicity-hungry viper. At least she'll get to visit with her dear friend Emily Holiday, the club's vice president. But companionable chats take a back seat to sluething when Club President Catherine Freeman is shot point-blank in her own driveway.
I enjoy mystery books and I enjoy gardening books. I had never heard of this author or her "Gardening Mystery Series", so when I saw it offered on PBS, I ordered it. It was a great disappointment to me. I read on to the biter end, thinking it couldn't get any worse, but it did. There is even a gardening essay included on growing plants in time of drought and this I found helpful and took some notes on suggested plants.
However, the characters are not well developed and there are so many characters that it is difficult to follow all of them, thus the plot is muddled. Big scene at the end where our heroine is knocked down a flight of stairs, hit, shot and what-have-you. But don't despair, then comes the advice on growing plants in a drought??
