Tish Tarragon’s preparations for Coleton Creek’s annual garden club awards luncheon are threatened when one of the prime contenders is murdered.
Literary caterer Letitia ‘Tish’ Tarragon is preparing her English Secret Garden-themed luncheon for Coleton Creek’s annual garden club awards, but when she is taken on a tour of some of the top contenders with the garden club’s president, Jim Ainsley, Tish is surprised at how seriously the residents take the awards – and how desperate they are to win.
Wealthy, retired businessman Sloane Shackleford has won the coveted best garden category five years in a row, but he and his Bichon Frise, Biscuit, are universally despised. When Sloane’s bludgeoned body is discovered in his pristine garden, Tish soon learns that he was disliked for reasons that go beyond his green fingers. Have the hotly contested awards brought out a competitive and murderous streak in one of the residents?

WHAT I THOUGHT:
I liked this, nice easy reading nothing to think about, well apart from who committed the crime and no I did not guess who it was, I wasn’t even close! A nice entertaining read and I do like a book like this every so often as my brain gets very overloaded with too much murder and gory crime. This included a bit of gardening and cooking for the main event. But who disliked who? The secrets come out as you read through this book, often changing who you thought the culprit might be. Very enjoyable.
