Overview

Garden center manager Heather Cameron is DIGGING FOR DEATH to prove her old family friend, mentor, and employee, Walter Sims, is innocent of murdering the meanest man in town. Heather can’t trust the police to find the real killer when all clues point to poor Walter. The dead man was beaten to death with Walter’s shovel several hours after they were overheard arguing, and the two men had a long history of enmity. Walter definitely looks guilty, but Heather is sure—well, almost positive—okay, she certainly hopes her friend and mentor is innocent.
Heather is compelled to scour the fictional North Central Texas town of Gamble Grove to exonerate her old friend. She’s encouraged when the new police detective in town, Kurt Steele, shows interest in helping her look for clues.
The deeper Heather digs into the dead man’s life, the more she justifies his ruthless reputation. Walter is indicted, but police begin to suspect the victim’s stepson as murderer. Heather is convinced the stepson couldn’t have murdered anyone either—although it’s clear no love was lost between the two men. The attempted murder of the victim’s real son creates a new twist. Can Heather solve the murder without becoming the killer’s next victim?

Editorial Reviews

Amazon Kindle - Stan :aw
She--with a gentle wiggle of her hips, he--a macho, ex-marine detective. What could go wrong? Well, a matter of murder. The good are good, the bad are bad, and preferably dead. I didn't sit on the edge of my seat, but rather refilled my Scotch, sank deeper into my armchair, and lost myself in a small town where everybody knows everybody, and the heroine, a delightful young woman, not quite sure of herself, but determined to find the truth.

While at times the book relaxed me a trifle too
Amazon Kindle - Karen K. Arnold
I picked up this freebie and I really enjoyed the start of a new series. I liked the characters and the plot was pretty much the usual formula for a cozy so it made for a nice read at the lake. I was disappointed there were no other books yet but I will be watching for more
Amazon Kindle - Carol B
The main character is Heather Cameron who has recently taken over the family gardening business. A client's husband is murdered with the shovel belonging to one of Heather's employees so naturally this self described Nancy Drew must get involved.
The story was interesting and the characters were extremely likeable. The mystery was very good and I wasn't certain "whodunnit" until Heather figured it out.
I enjoyed this so much that I want to purchase the next book in the series.

    A fast-paced romantic mystery

    As the new manager of the family garden center, twenty-eight year old Heather Gillentine works hard to prove she has what it takes. Then a difficult customer turns up dead, bludgeoned by one of her crew’s shovels. The evidence points to poor old Walter, but Heather knows he couldn’t have done it.

    Detective Kurt Steele is determined to get his man and enjoy a side serving of garden manager. Much to Heather’s dismay, living in her matchmaking grandparents’ backyard at the garden center disrupts her love life. Sparks fly as Heather and Kurt match wits and track down leads.

    For the green-thumbed gardeners out there, this book will make you feel right at home amidst the verdant rows of Gillentine Gardens. My favorite character was spunky great-grandmother Gigi who had the best lines. Clemmons handles first-person point of view well for a very enjoyable read.
