    Witty Series

    Paula Holliday is a good gardener; but without realizing it, she's a much better investigator. Her pals are quirky; the cop who always shows up may (or may not) be wildly interested in Paula. Her friend and almost business partner is discovered to have a past worthy of any famous escaped convict and it falls on Paula to search out the truth of the matter.
    This series is well thought out, sparkling, witty and nervously exciting. Well worth the read, and I'm sure to enjoy the others Ms. Harris has written. You will be glad you took the time to read this - I am!

    Review: Dead Head by Rosemary Harris
    4 STARS
    I enjoyed reading Dead Head. It is the third Dirty business mystery. I now want to go back and read the first two and look forward to the fourth one coming out soon.
    Paula Holiday is a gardner and she is known to look into things sometimes. She doesn't have an office but she hangs out in a diner and does planting for it.Caroline A friend wants to go into business with her and buy the old Nursery plant business. Caroline would front the money and put it in Paula's name.
    Before Paula could except Caroline was arrested for a jail break. Monica was her real name and when she was a cheerleader busted for selling drugs and got 40 years sentence. After 18 months she was on a work release job and got away.
    Grant Caroline's husband had no idea that his wife had hidden such a thing from her. Grant hired Paula to find the mystery caller that turned his wife in.
    Than Grant and most of the town thought it was Paula herself who turned Caroline and Paula was looseing lots of business. So to clear her name she needed to keep looking.
    It was a good mystery that kept you guessing who was doing what and why.
    Plus some comedy of errors. I was given this book by Rosemary and asked in exchange to give honest review.

    DEAD HEAD by Rosemary Harris is an intriguing contemporary cozy mystery set in present day Connecticut. It is the third in "Dirty Business Mystery",but can be read as a stand alone. Book One,"Pushing Up Daisies,Book Two, "The Big Dirt Nap". It is written with depth and details.The characters are witty,intriguing,and love capture your heart. The plot is easy to follow and believable.It has a fugitive from justice,murder,female gardener's, mystery,suspense,Paula Holliday,a wise cracking amateur sleuth,unraveling the past,and finding justice. This is a fast paced story that will have you laughing in some parts and crying in others. It is a fresh look into mystery/murder with a female sleuth,friends,and of course a little dirty business.This is not just an amateur sleuth book but it also has a little romance,with a mix of social wit and a gutsy heroine with some very offbeat characters.If you enjoy a cozy,intelligent,story with lots of character and style this is the book for you. It will appeal to all cozy mystery readers,and some romance readers.This was a read,must read story that will leave you refreshed and in need of the next installment.This book was received for the purpose of review from the author and details can be found at Minotaur Books,A Thomas Dunne Book, an imprint of St. Martin's Publishing Group and My Book Addiction and More.
