Near an isolated mansion lies a beautiful garden. In this garden grow luscious flowers, shady trees...and a collection of precious "butterflies" - young women who have been kidnapped and intricately tattooed to resemble their namesakes. Overseeing it all is the Gardener, a brutal, twisted man obsessed with capturing and preserving his lovely specimens.

Narrative was very good but the story was slow and hard to keep up with. Jumped around to much. I listened to the whole thing but if I had to read it I would never have finished it

For Jay Owens, being a celebrity was exactly what he wanted. Access to the clubs with the best parties. Devoted fans who would give anything for a picture with him. First-class travel around the world. But as the luster of his fame began to fade, he became desperate to find a way to retain his stardom. Jay was once again prime tabloid fodder when he married actress Heather Garrison, catapulting him back to the top of the charts. Wedded bliss wasn't Jay's plan, though. Publicity was.

Death by Roses is an outrageous, laugh-out-loud exploration of life and love before and after death. Leading us on a journey full of shocking revelations, eccentric characters, and perhaps even enlightenment, Vivian Probst is a master of her craft. Death by Roses mixes just the right blend of irreverence, ingenuity, and heart-felt sincerity in a touching story of life and relationships as the universe's sense of humor unfolds.
