I had a hard time getting into this story... I felt there was a little too much going on all over the place.. Too many details, too many people.. even too many mysteries!
I did enjoy the main character, but there were too many other characters to really get to know anyone else well enough.
I will give this series another try since the 2nd book I received as an Advanced Reading Copy
Description from the publisher:
Meet Paula Holliday, a transplanted media exec who trades her stilettos for garden clogs when she makes the move from the big city to the suburbs to start a gardening business. Paula can handle deer, slugs, and the occasional human pest---but she’s not prepared for the mummified body she finds while restoring the gardens at Halcyon, a local landmark.
Casual snooping turns serious when a body is impaled on a garden tool and one of Paula’s friends is arrested for the crime.
Aided by the still-hot aging rocker who owns the neighborhood greasy spoon, a wise-cracking former colleague, and a sexy Mexican laborer with a few secrets of his own, Paula digs for the truth and unearths more dirty business the town has kept buried for years.
