Fresh from solving her third mystery, Gethsemane Brown is ready to relax and enjoy her summer. Her plans include nothing more dangerous than performing in the opening ceremony of the annual rose and garden show and cheering on Frankie Grennan, who has entered his hybrid rose into the competition. But when a mysterious stalker starts leaving Frankie floral bouquets as coded messages, Gethsemane fears a copycat may be planning to recreate the still-unsolved murders of the infamous Flower Shop Killer.

Loved the complexity of the story. Wonderfully told. Especially loved the contrast between the teenage protagonist’s small and sunny outlook, and the terrors of her reality.

I love all JKR's Harry Potter books, but I think this final in the initial series is just brilliant. I've read it and listened to it multiple times. Never disappoints.

I don't know how many times I've read and listened to this book. It continues to entertain, surprise, teach, and delight. I'm a huge fan of Erdrich's work in general, and this is my favorite. I'm always sad when it's over, and carry the people who populate its pages with me.

After trying to help Benjamin Pearl, an undernourished, nearly feral 11-year-old boy living in the Montana wilderness, social worker Pete Snow comes face-to-face with the boy's profoundly disturbed father, Jeremiah. With courage and caution, Pete slowly earns a measure of trust from this paranoid survivalist itching for a final conflict that will signal the coming End Times. But as Pete's own family spins out of control, Pearl's activities spark the full-blown interest of the FBI, putting Pete at the center of a massive manhunt from which no one will emerge unscathed.

One of the best books in a while. Beautifully and unselfconsciously written, a story that kept my interest without sensationalism. A story of the darkest of humanity, yet with redemption. Narration compelling and compliments the book.
