This is a new first series in the cozy genre. However, it has a little more meat than a typical cozy. It is a gardening series and while there is some gardening tips, I'd like to see more tips in future books. There is a few twists in this book that make it a book hard to put down. Paula Holliday, a former filmaker turned landscaper finds a body in an old neglected garden and turns part time sleuth. The book has a great cast of characters, including a cute but slighty pudgy cop and a hot best friend as well as numerous other memorable characters.
This is the 1st one that I have read by this author and I enjoyed it. I give it a 4 1/2 stars rating.
kinda cute...but sometimes hard to follow the characters...and not a lot of typing up of loose ends until the end
This is a very entertaining first book from Rosemary Harris. Her characters are witty and enjoyable. Quick read. Read it in a day. Worth keeping an eye out for her next novel...hopefully this is the beginning of a series.
I liked this book. Good mystery plot with other mini mysteries that pop up along the way. I will definitely get the next title in this series.
The first book in the Dirty Business Mysteries introduces a gutsy heroine with an offbeat supporting cast.I really liked it and would recommend it to someone looking for a fast pace intriguing mystery with great characters along with being very funny.
Pushing up Daisies: a non-stop intensity about murder - driven in a vicious circle from garden to pub to police. Funny, too.
I enjoyed this book very much. In addition to having an interesting plot, you get an insight into landscaping.
