Welcome back to Springfield, Connecticut,
where weary suburbanites can rest in peace...
New York media exec-turned-gardener Paula Holliday is thrilled when her friend Lucy asks her to tag along on an all-expenses-paid junket to the Titans Hotel. On display is the rare titan arum, a notoriously pungent plant known as the “corpse flower.” Unfortunately, the flower isn’t blooming—and the only thing Paula smells is a real corpse…
“A heroine who isn’t afraid to get down in the dirt.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Lucy’s would-be suitor has been found dead—with a hole in his head—and Lucy has mysteriously disappeared. Now Paula has to start digging up clues before the police’s worst suspicions take root. Even if the odious flower finally blooms, Paula has more important things to tend to. Because murder, by any other name, really stinks…
“An absolute must-read for cozy lovers. Readers of Susan Wittig Albert and Earlene Fowler will relish Rosemary Harris’s exceptionally engaging new voice.” —Julia Spencer Fleming, Edgar finalist and author of I Shall Not Want
