Listen to another Gardening Mystery.

"Certain to appeal to mystery readers with green thumbs!" (The Denver Post)
I did not like this one. It was very slow and drawn out. You know that a book has lost your interest when you haven’t a clue who the characters are much less care. At the end, the murderer was revealed and I still don’t remember him/her. The reader doses not help the situation. There is no suspense in her voice. She might be good reading a romance novel but is atrocious with a mystery. Who knows, you may like this one. But, as for me, it was just so much compost.
I was interested in the gardening aspect of the story but over all I did not think this was a strong mystery. Washington DC social settings and White House intrigue impact a family that has moved to the area for the CIA spy husband's new assignment. I found it interesting enough to listen to the end and I will try one more in the series. The performance was ok. I could hear paper pages turning in some parts.
This book keeps you interested. Well writen and fun. I listen to a lot of books. I don't usually rate them but this series is worth it.
