"What is Grace growing in her greenhouse?

"Grace Trevethan has a wonderful life, living with her husband in their beautiful house and grounds in the Cornish village of St Liac. Then one day, Grace's dream-like existence is shattered as her husband dies suddenly by jumping out of a plane without a parachute (nearly taking out an unsuspecting morris dancer in the process). Faced with huge debts that mean she will lose her beloved home, Grace is at her wits' end, under she and her gardener, Matthew, come up with a perfect, if highly illegal, solution that they believe can save her ...

"Gradually Grace becomes embroiled in a daring scheme that can either save her home or end with disastrous consequences. The events that ensue make life in the usually sleepy village more complex, nerve-wracking and entertaining than anything a city has to offer."
~~back cover

A charming, well-written, funny, understated, laugh-out-loud funny book. Nor is it your typical English village recap -- it takes place in an English village, but you'll not met Miss Marple or Miss Silver round any of the corners.

I can't wait for the movie to come up on my Netflix queue!
