Publisher's Summary

Ditched at the altar, Shelby Jenkins tosses down her bouquet, quits her job, and accepts a position as gardener and event coordinator at an upscale retirement community. Her first day on the job results with a dead body in the greenhouse under the orchids and with her as the prime suspect!

Toss in a handsome handyman, quirky characters, and a flirtatious grandma and the fun never stops.

    "humorous"

    This was an enjoyable listen. The story isn't very complex and the characters aren't well developed, but it is humorous and light-hearted. Great if you aren't looking for a deep read.

    Story
    "I can't eecommend it"

    I enjoy reading well written cozy mysteries that include believable characters and a realistic plot. I didn't find that in this story. Not only was the plot unbelievable, but, the characters were one dimensional and flat. I felt like the author just put something together without much of a plan as to how to develop it. The narrator didn't help either. Laurie Lane sounded like a grown woman trying to imitate a child. This book did not work for me.
