    fantastic amateur sleuth

    Peggy Lee, who lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, is a widow and a botanist who teaches part time at Queens College and owns the Potting Shed. One fall day her bicycle bumps into Steve¿s car, Saturn Vue, she adopts a dog the size of a small horse and she finds the body of a dead man in the warehouse space in the back of her store. His head was bashed in by a shovel and when the police are called, another shop owner tells them about the homeless man who hangs around the mall.--- Peggy has befriended the man, giving him food and money and doesn¿t think he could have killed anyone. When the homeless man Mr. Cleever is arrested they find the victim¿s wallet and shoes in his possession. One of Peggy¿s clerks, Keely Prinz was having an affair with the victim who was a married man. She was pregnant with his child and also had a motive to kill him. If Peggy finds evidence that will free Mr. Cleever, suspicion will fall on Keely. Peggy with the help of Steve who makes his interest in her plain, decades to investigate so that both suspects will be cleared of all suspicions.--- Joyce and Jim Lavene have written a fantastic amateur sleuth mystery where the protagonist goes to outrageous lengths to prove the two suspects innocent. Peggy proves life can be rich and rewarding after fifty and the beginning of a romance with a sexy younger man adds an extra ingredient to a charming story. This mystery will appeal to men and women of all ages as PRETTY POISON is a great tale.--- Harriet Klausner

    GREAT COVER ON THE BOOK; GOOD MYSTERY; GOOD SUBJECT

    This book attracted me to the cover. I loved it. It was most attractive. I was looking for a good mystery and found it, The background of plants made it that much more interesting and teh characters were quite real. I would definitely read more by the Lavenes.

    Love the series. Very far fetched and some of the characters seem angry for no reason. But I care about the main characters and can't wait to see what Peggy gets into next

    Peggy Lee (not the singer) just naturally gets involved in solvi

    Peggy Lee (not the singer) just naturally gets involved in solving crimes. She is environmentally conscious & rides her bike whenever possible, thus meeting an interesting new man. The characters are natural & believable. There is humor along with the serious business of being a widow & solving mysteries. I read the first 4 books in the series non stop. I love Joyce & Jim Lavene & have read their Renaissance Faire & OBX series also.
