GARDEN OF DEATHGarden of Death:
A Natural Remedies Mystery

Series: A Natural Remedies Mystery (Book 3)
Mass Market Paperback: 400 pages
Publisher: Pocket Books (March 24, 2015)
ISBN-13: 978-1476748917


Murder is unearthed when an outspoken surgeon turns up dead in Willow McQuade’s medicinal herb garden.
When a local doctor is found dead in Willow McQuade’s medicinal garden, she must find the killer to clear her boyfriend’s name in this third clever book in the Natural Remedies Mystery series.
Dr. Willow McQuade, owner of Nature’s Way Market & Café, has put the finishing touches on a new medicinal plant garden for Greenport’s annual Maritime Festival and is ready for the festivities to begin. But it’s not all flowers and sunshine at the grand opening, when Willow discovers the body of another contestant, Dr. Charles White, face down in her garden.
Willow’s hunky boyfriend, Jackson Spade, immediately becomes a suspect due to a recent fight with Dr. White. Willow knows she has to remedy the situation, but it won’t be easy with the other applicants’ vendettas and vandals wrecking her garden at every turn. And when she finds buried treasure in her garden that just might belong to the legendary Captain Kidd, the stakes become even higher. Was Dr. White searching for that treasure? Did someone kill him to get to it first? With the help of Jackson and her eccentric ex-boyfriend, Willow follows the clues to uncover the truth that someone wants buried…
But can she dig up enough evidence before she becomes the killer’s next victim?
My Review:
With Spring just around the corner, this is a great read. Flowers, gardens, sunshine and murder make up this well written, fast-paced book.  You will instantly be swept into the festivities and helping Willow find out who killed the local Doctor. When Willows boyfriend is named suspect, she has to find out what really happened and clear his name before they are too late. This great cast of characters and plot twist will keep you reading and eagerly wanting more. I am looking forward to see what Willow will get herself into next.

About This Author
I love natural remedies and I’ve been using them for as long as I can remember. When I was growing up, my mother practiced natural cures such as tea bag baths for sunburn, homeopathic remedies for colds and allergies, arnica oil for sprains and bruises and, of course, chicken soup with garlic was always a staple.
My interest in natural remedies continued after I graduated from Boston University with a degree in communications and subsequently dabbled in various vocations including advertising and television production in Hollywood. In 1998 I moved back to my hometown, Greenport, NY and set up my own writing business. I’d always wanted to be my own boss and write full-time.
My focus was, and is, health, and in particular alternative medicine which includes natural remedies. As a freelance journalist, I’ve written about natural cures for Natural Health, Mother Earth Living, Spirituality & Health, and Vegetarian Times, as for over five years I was the Good Nature columnist for Remedy magazine.

  8. I don't have a garden anymore. Too much traveling and no good place to have one. But if I did, it would certainly have tomatoes (home-grown are so much tastier than store bought) and Four O'Clock flowers would be in it. This sounds like a good book to look for! Thanks!
