Book Description

 May 10, 2013
A Peggy Lee Garden Mystery – Book 6, 55,000 words.
Peggy Lee and her gardening friends have managed to persuade the International Flower Show to move to Charlotte from Atlanta this year. Excited and enthusiastic, Peggy agrees to step into the role as director of the event, but on opening day, a good friend of hers is found dead in the middle of the show.
Dr. Aris Abbuto, an orchid grower from South Africa, has been shot and buried in a makeshift grave covered with pink thyme. Peggy is especially devastated since he came at her personal invitation. The presence of the pink thyme, a plant once used for ancient burial rites, tells her it’s possible one of the show’s growers may be involved in his death.
She plans to work with the Charlotte Police on this one, in her position of contract forensic botanist, and is surprised to learn of the Charlotte FBI’s interest in the case—which means her husband, Steve is involved too.
Peggy is focused on finding her friend’s killer and running the flower show with hundreds of sometimes disgruntled vendors. Her questions will find a devious plot with her friend and his young daughter, unwittingly, at the heart of it.
Asking the wrong questions can be dangerous, however, as Peggy knows so well. If she isn’t careful, finding her friend’s killer might also lead to a flower-covered grave for her.

My Review:

Peggy Lee runs a gardening Shop and is the Forensic Biologist for the Police. She is Happily married to Steve who helps her run the shop as well.

Peggy is the chairperson for the International Flower show in Atlanta this year and with the help of her husband, she want's to make sure the show is a huge success. At one of the visits to  the convention center to make sure everything is going well she comes across what looks like a freshly made grave. She calls for the Police and when they dig up the grave the find the body of Peggy's friend, Aris Abutto. The Police also find Thyme in the grave which has Peggy wondering why it was there and who put it there. Then there is the missing sachtel and the skunk that got away. Peggy has her hands full and she still has a show that has to go on.

This fun, fast paced read was very enjoyable and delightful to read! Thank you Jim and Joyce for another Fantastic book!
