While the plot held together and kept my interest, I found the main character, Peggy Lee, to be a little bit too good to be real. I mean, a business owner who is also a PhD and teaches college, who also creates new breeds of roses in the basement of her 25-room house, who also stays up half the night on the internet . . . and still has time to solve crimes? She's supposed to be my age, and the business alone would exhaust me.

First book in the five book series. I was hooked within the first few pages. Peggy Lee is a part-time college teacher of botany at the local college and also runs a garden shop called "The Potting Shed." With the employees she has in the shop, her son, who is a police detective, some college students and a new man in her life she performs some interesting maneuvers to get at the truth of who poisoned the wealthy man found dead in her shop. Excellent.

Great book. The authors always keep you in suspense until the last moment of the story. Can't wait to read the next one.

Liked this series beginner very much! A lot of plot twists, but even I figured it out 3/4 of the way through.

Enjoyed this first in this series. Good mystery, guessed right, but didn't know for sure until the end.
Good characters, enjoyed them all.
