Ms Marty Wingate, I have read all your Potting Shed Mysteries to date and feel that I'm welcome back home to each new addition. This is the best one yet. Applause.
Waiting on # 7.
Ms. Erin Bennet thank you for your efforts. Your British accents help make me feel back in England, and your ability to switch to that Texan twang of Pru's, just makes it all more visible. Congratulations.
The story takes you back into the life of Pru (Texas gardener extraordinaire), and husband Chief Inspector Christopher Pearse, go on a job and vacation mix. Pru looking forward to another English garden to get her hands into, and husband as backup. Even though it starts with a simple beginning, things go wrong. But that is where the entertainment lies--in all the little things that keep adding up. There is an death that is abruptly thrown in to stir things up, and when they we go into detective mode we know we are in 3rd gear. Nosy Texan meets inquisitive Brits in the country side--who will figure it out first. Pleasurable sleuthing creates for great entertainment.
Worth the listen, worth the credit
Great listen/read--try all of Marty Wingate's other 5 books first. I can personally tell you the story develops with each new book, developing into a great cozy mystery.

I realize these books are cozy mysteries and are full of fluff, but the murderer has been obvious early on in the last two books. There really is not much mystery to the story. However, as a southerner who used to live in England, I enjoy the descriptions of the countryside and the language difference. I like that characters from previous books are revisited. I love the examples of all the different ways to family.
If you are looking for a mystery that keeps you guessing, this is not the series for you. But if you want an easy listen to pass the time, this is a good option.
