#PRUNING THE DEAD by Julia Henry


The first book in a new series Lilly Jayne mysteries and a new author for me. Lilly has been grieving for husband and at the urging of a friend has opened her spectacular garden. The party brought huge number residents to visit the garden. At the appearance of her first husband and his 3rd wife, Marilee Frank the mood of the party changed. Lilly is now aware of the negative aspects that are occurring in the town. She forms the Garden Squad to correct the problems. On the cleanup of the town's park, Marilee murder body is found. Lilly is involved in the investigation as her first husband, Pete Frank is the main suspect and Lilly feels he is not guilty. Will Lilly's effort to clear Pete is a success, or will Pete end up in prison. I highly recommend this book.
Gardening tips are included.
