The second book of the Lovely Lethal Gardens series has Doreen working on Mack’s Mother’s Garden. Her fur friends accompanied her and add humor to the tale. Mugs find a stray bone in the begonia beds. Again Mack has another cold case to investigate. Doreen takes the animals to Man’s retirement home for add humor. Man sets up little bets and often wins the bet. Thaddeus is adapt to picking up what people say and repeating at times. Doreen is slowly going three the contents of the house and finding cash among them allowing her to buy food. The animals have minor roles so there are laughs before Doreen finds the answer to the bones and put herself in grave danger. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND SERIES.
