  • Good book. I like gardening and audiobooks; book was available via Hoopla and a perfect way to spend the weekend working in the yard. Not a super thriller, but well done.


  • Another mystery that's been hanging around for awhile in one of my TBR piles. I think I got this from my county library book sale since it was with others books I got there a few years ago. Not the first of the series, and I always prefer to begin at the beginning, but it's here NOW, so I'm reading it.Well, it's more of a 2.5 stars, but I upped it because I did like the mystery, but I began to be irritated by the sections on gardening when all I wanted to do was read the mystery part of the book [...]


  • #4 in the Louise Eldridge series. 1999 entry in the series about an organic gardener with her own TV show.Louise Eldridge travels with her family to the Litchfield Fall Inn in CT to tape two segments for her gardening show. An attempt on the life of the owner is suspected to be an attempt to hasten inheritance. Accusations of the theft of red iris genes, a tough love ministry, and college exam cheating muddy the motives for two subsequent murders. Louise investigates.


  • This book is really smart! The plot started out in a nice and smooth introduction. It called out my eagerness plus the garden tips. This is a one of a kind suspense novel. I love the characters. The scenes were unique to the point were you have to focus on some points not to form wrong ideas about how the story would end up. The nerve whacking arguments and investigations make the story bold and strong.More power to Ann Ripley!


  • This author and this cozy mystery plucks at my heart strings with both it's content and gardening themes. The reader is provided with a lot of insightful, interesting information on flowers and gardening while being swept along on sleuthing expedition. A very satisfying read for those disposed to those passions.


  • "I enjoyed this garden mystery, though found it frustrating in places when obvious clues weren't picked up on. Also, bad production in the audio book, with bad timing, mistakes throughout, questionable pronunciation, which I rarely have experienced in other audio books. ("Books in Motion", never heard before.) 4th in the series."


  • I disliked this book. I read it only to read it. The plot was boring, the characters not developed. The most interesting part was the bits of flower info throughout and only some of this was interesting. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.


  • An interesting, fast read with short chapters on gardening information tucked into the story--kind of like Nora Ephron does with food.


  • 2.5 - 3 stars. I liked the gardening theme. The plot was good. The language was decent, but not great literature. It is a fun, fast read.
