DIGGING FOR DEATH by Caroline Clemmons

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?

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.
