    Fair at best

    An ok way to pass time in an airport waiting for your plane to arrive, not likely you will get so engrossed in the story you will miss your boarding announcement. The plot is not bad but the author spends too much time describing food & fashion in detail. Police chief gives main character way too much access to evidence and encourages her to assist with investigation even though they just met, he doesn't know her, and she is a writer for a gardening magazine not a cop or P.I.

    I was willing to give this book a try, but I was sorry I did. T

    I was willing to give this book a try, but I was sorry I did. The author spends way too much time describing thing in detail like: the food the characters are eating (it's a wonder the main character doesn't weigh 600 lbs with all she eats in this book); clothing; hairstyles that have nothing to do with the story. I'm a dog lover, but really?? She describes in way too much detail (again) as to what the dog is saying to the main character. I tried to get thru the whole thing but just couldn't started skimming at page 300. I agree, too far-fetched the police captain would never give this person these liberties in real life. Thankfully, this was free. I wouldn't bother if I were you.

    416 pages, poorly edited, inane story

    This free mystery was poorly edited. Several times the tenses were mixed up. It was also inane. It is 416 pages after the reader discounts the brag and introduction pages. There is no sex, romance, gore, cursing, religion or much plot. I can' t fathom a police chief involving a woman gardener, who writes for a magazine, in a murder investigation. All because she finds the body, she becomes lead investigator on the case. How stupid does the author think readers are? Of course she solves the crime on her own. Have a pen and paper handy, so you can make a list of who is who, there are a lot of characters in this novel. Many of whom do nothing. For ages 16 and up. But I recommend you skip this one.

    A garden combo mystery

    Nice cozy think ive read one or two of the others but it may be another author with same combo note that responsible travelers ususlly have a nylon portable dog crate for roons and solid for auto. Dogs can get loose and lost and many hotels will not allow maids to service a room with a loose animal or one shut in bathroom. Dog rooms often special rooms on ground or first floor so dogs dont ride in elevators. Page counter and"Bubba"

    Okay book.

    Like a murder she wrote story onlyless dramatic. A little comedy would've spiced it up.
