Summary

Summary

Louise comes to the Bethesda Garden Club's famous spring plant sale hoping to get great footage for her public television show, "Gardening with Nature." But companionable chats take a back seat to sleuthing when club president Catherine Freeman is shot point-blank in her own driveway. The police are convinced her husband, the controversial head of the Federal Reserve, was the true target. Louise, however, is not so sure.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Louise Eldridge plans to cover the annual Bethesda Garden Club plant sale in Maryland for her TV show, but the shooting death of the club president, the attractive and well-bred wife of a Washington VIP, upsets the azalea cart in Death at the Spring Plant Sale: A Gardening Mystery, Ann Ripley's sixth entry (after 2002's The Christmas Garden Affair) in her appealing cozy series. Once again Louise must turn amateur sleuth in a story full of menacing incident and horticultural detail. Agent, Jane Jordan Browne. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


Library Journal Review

Working on an upcoming program for her public television show, Louise Eldridge attends the Bethesda Garden Club's famous spring sale and visits good friend Emily, a club officer. Unfortunately, the pair winds up sleuthing when someone kills the club's president. A welcome series addition-which plants a few helpful gardening hints. For cozy fans. (c) Copyright 2010.
