Bestselling author Marty Wingate “plants clever clues with a dash of romantic spice,” raves Mary Daheim. Now Wingate’s inimitable gardening heroine, Pru Parke, is importing a precious bloom from Texas—and she won’t let a vicious murder stop her.
Pru’s life in England is coming full circle. A Texas transplant, she’s married to the love of her life, thriving in the plum gardening position she shares with her long-lost brother, and prepping a Chelsea Flower Show exhibit featuring the beloved bluebonnets of the Texas hill country. Technically, Twyla Woodford, the president of a gardening club in the Lone Star State, is in charge of the London event, but Pru seems to be the one getting her hands dirty. When they finally do meet, Pru senses a kindred spirit—until Twyla turns up dead.
Although Twyla’s body was half buried under a wall in their display, Pru remains determined to mount a spectacular show. Twyla would have insisted. So Pru recruits her husband, former Detective Chief Inspector Christopher Pearse, to go undercover and do a bit of unofficial digging into Twyla’s final hours. If Pru has anything to say about it, this killer is going to learn the hard way not to mess with Texas.
My Review 
This book is really exciting, intriguing, full of mystery and suspense, with lots of false leads.Pru has moved from Texas to London to pursue her dreams and work in the creation of beautiful gardens. She and her brother have opened a business together and now are trying to import a species of Bluebonnnet, the typical flower of Texas. She has found the love of her life very late and got married at fifty years with a former inspector. During an important and prestigious assignment ,one of her recruiters dies but she is determined to complete her work. She gets help from her husband in the investigation.
Although the fifth book in the series can be read as a standalone but once read one makes you want to read them all.It 's a story written beautifully well, really addictive, full of humor. I loved the descriptions of the gardens' architecture and of bluebonnets, I adore this flower, is one of my favorites.This book is a must read for those who love cozy mystery and gardening.
