Nightshade for Warning
An Enchanted Garden Mystery
- Cozy Mystery
- Women Sleuths
Ellie's business and personal life have been flourishing in her hometown of Poppyville, California, since she opened Scents & Nonense. She uses her very special skills to craft perfumes that almost magically ease heartache, inspire change, and bring joy - and her customers love to relax in the beautiful garden behind her shop with her corgi, Dash, and her cat, Nabokov. She even lives right next to the garden, in a compact "tiny house" - and she's excited to hear that a journalist is going to write a feature about her home and garden for a national magazine.
But then the journalist is found dead, and suspicion falls on the last person to see him - which just happens to be Ellie's brother's girlfriend. So before everything goes to seed, Ellie must rely on her powers - observational and otherwise - to pick out the real killer from an overexpanding bouquet of culprits...
