There was a time, about 20 years ago, when we went through a Celia Grant period. You, know, John Sherwood's widow cum horticulturist cum mystery solver, with the hunky side kick. Celia of the cupid's bow lips...anyhow, we read almost all the mysteries, lapping up the horticultural references.

This was one we read and owned, and eventually BookCrossed.
