Plagued by rumours that she poisoned her fiancé, Lucinda Bromley lives on the fringes of polite society, tending her beloved plants - and occasionally consulting on a murder investigation.
But the death of a lord has shaken Lucinda to her core. At the murder scene, she picks up traces of a poison containing a very rare species of fern - stolen from her conservatory just last month. To keep her name out of it, and to find the murderer, Lucinda hires fellow Arcane Society member, Caleb Jones.
As desire blooms between them, they are drawn into a deadly conspiracy that can be traced to the early days of the society - and to a legacy of madness that could plunge Caleb into the depths of his own tortured soul...

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
A short time into this book I had to give up. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. With every help from the narrator it sounded like a not very funny Monty Python sketch.
"hard to get in to"
This was a really hard audio book to get in to, in fact I never really did. The narrator?s voice is like a drone and I found that it was easy to blank out and ignore unless I really concentrated. This was a shame as from the blurb I thought I would really enjoy it.
