Fiftyish Dr. Peggy Lee is coming back to life after the death of her beloved husband two years ago. Although she is still teaching at the college, her heart is with her garden shop, The Potting Shed and she has a new man in her life, Steve, a vet seven years younger than her. She wonders if she should give up teaching to work full time at the shop and as a forensic botanist consultant to the police.--------------- While collecting endangered plants to replant in the Community Garden that is part of Feed America and led by her friend Darmus, she meets his brother Luther, who tells her he is dying of cancer. On impulse she goes to Darmus¿ house and smells gas the place explodes and Darmus is declared dead. However when she looks at the corpse, she knows this is not Darmus. Luther who now heads Feed America dies a few days later. An autopsy reveals he was poisoned with the evidence pointing towards his sibling Peggy thinks otherwise and plans to prove it.------------------- Joyce and Jim Lavene are a fabulous team who create poignant entertaining mysteries. The investigation is cleverly plotted and potted so that readers struggle with the identity of the killer as Darmus looks guilty, but the heroine thinks otherwise fans will wonder if she could be wrong. The support cast from her parents to her friends to her new man adds depth to a delightful botany mystery.----------- Harriet Klausner

Loving the fun with Shakespeare the Great Dane & her love interest. Also enjoy the idea of an "older" detective with a "younger" man.

Dr. Peggy Lee didn¿t plan on becoming involved in a murder investigation during her family¿s visit, in the midst of her garden shop¿s busy season. But her dear friend, Darmus, has died in a terrible gas fire, followed by his brother, Luther, soon after. Now the police want to know why there was a flower in Luther¿s pocket, and who put it there. Steve, her reliable new boyfriend, comes to the rescue and entertains the family while Peggy searches for clues. And her father is more perceptive than the others and insists on helping. Although she would prefer to keep the investigation to herself, she¿s grateful he tagged along when she gets into some tight spots. Things are not always what they seem, as Peggy finds out from her mysterious internet friend. And her relationship with Steve is about to change in ways she never expected. Peggy Lee is a middle-aged widow with a lot of spunk, who gets herself into situations no average woman would attempt. While her character is very well developed, this reviewer would have enjoyed getting to know several of the secondary characters a bit better, also. Poisoned Petals blends a love of gardening with a well plotted murder mystery. It¿s an enjoyable and cozy read, perfectly suited for lounging in the garden on a summer day.

Poisoned Petals is the third book in the Peggy Lee Garden Mystery Series and it is the best one yet! Authors Joyce and Jim Lavene get their protagonist, a 52-year-old botanist with a garden store, in and out of more intriguing situations as she discovers the death of a fellow botanist is not an accident.
