But another 11-o'-Clock Lady is never going to wake up again. Rona Jean Hancock - a telephone switchboard operator who earned her nickname because her shift ended at 11, when her nightlife was just beginning - has been found strangled with her own silk stocking in a very unladylike position. Gossip sprouts like weeds in a small town, and Rona Jean's somewhat wild reputation is the topic of much speculation regarding who might have killed her. As the Darling Dahlias begin to sort through Rona Jean's private affairs, it appears there may be a connection to some skullduggery at the local Civilian Conservation Corps camp. Working at the camp, garden club vice president Ophelia Snow digs around to expose the truth before a killer pulls up stakes and gets away with murder.

I think the first book about Darling Dahlias was The Cucumber Tree. This is a very good series written by Susan Wittig Albert. The series starts at the beginning of the depression in the 1930's. The characters are very well described and charming. This is how to write a cozy mystery. Not a romance novel . No repetitious fact rehashing ,no blood and gore, just very interesting situations and character description. Very well done.
Also, her China Bayle's mystery's are well written, although I probably would not try the herbal receipts unless I had a café in my small town. Great writing. You will enjoy these books.
I must say I have not listen to Albert's Beatrix Potter series, but I am sure they are well written.
