The Christmas Garden Affair
This latest engaging gardening mystery finds PBS star and amateur sleuth Louise Eldridge searching for a killer when a rival garden show host is found pushing up daisies at Christmastime. Sex sells...even in the home garden market. And Louise Eldridge, with her ratings fading faster than the last rose of summer, finds her once-popular PBS show upstaged by the output of one Bunny Bainfield. With her barely-there outfits, the bodacious Bunny makes pruning, mulching, and planting into an erotic adventure, and her highly successful "Bunny in the Garden" label is turning gardening into a flashy, multi-million dollar business. It galls Louise to see her life's work exploited for profit, especially when she discovers that both she and Bunny have been invited to the First Lady's Christmas conference on native plants. But someone at the formal affair feels even more strongly about the ruthless blonde magnate. No sooner has Bunny networked her last deal when she falls to the floor in violent spasms, the victim of a very potent poison. Surrounded by suspects galore, Louise is soon unearthing secrets about her fellow guests that make the Christmas spirit seem more menacing than joyful. And it isn't long before another body is found. Now, it's up to Louise to restore the good name of gardening by finding the killer, but the closer she gets to the truth, the deeper she may be to digging her own grave.
