Synopsis

A GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL

In the cheerful community garden where struggling freelance writer Liz Sullivan grows her veggies, someone is raking up old, hurtful scandals. So when a dead body turns up in nosy Lois Humphries's meticulously maintained plot, Liz is labeled a murderer!

With her reliable friend Detective Paul Drake out of town, Liz has a hard row to hoe--until she digs up dirt on some fellow gardeners who seem more than capable of giving the grim reaper a hand. But it'll take a deadly encounter among the cornstalks to catch a green-thumbed killer red-handed. . . .
