When I read the first book in the Greenhouse Mysteries, A MUDDIED MURDER, I was amazed at how quickly I was hooked. And, again with the second installment, BITER HARVEST. Author Wendy Tyson pulled me in with her easy writing style. You know the kind? Every word she writes belongs in the story. She doesn’t “over” describe things or add a bunch of words just to stretch out her word count. Her stories flow across the pages inviting you to drift with them.

With that said, while I loved the plot of SE

“Seeds of Revenge” earns 5/5 Vials of the Sweet Aroma of…Revenge!

I am very aware of the countless rave reviews for Wendy Tyson’s Greenhouse Mystery series, and am thrilled to finally join in with others to voice my excitement. Although I started with the third book, I never felt at a loss with the backstory or character connections. Wendy brings us Megan Sawyer who had given up her Chicago-based law career for the peace and quiet Winsome, Pennsylvania, helping to open a store and café featuring
WOW! I've enjoyed this series from the start, but this third in the series has set it for immediate addition to the Nook as soon as I hear the next one is released. Probably an immediate read too once downloaded.
I love the setting and the premise, the main characters, side characters, everything. Megan is an organic farmer. She's smart. She loves her life, her farm, her family. She has a great guy in her life. I like how real she feels to me as the reader. I can identify with her which I don't
Review to come soon.

Quick thoughts:
Really enjoy the series. Great characters, setting!
Megan offers a ride to a stranded motorist who turns out to be the niece of one of Winsome's shop owners. Becca is hoping to kick off her love potion business, but ends up a prime suspect in the death of her estranged father. When Megan's aunt is also implicated in the death, it becomes personal and Megan feels compelled to find out what really happened.

I've enjoyed the previous books in this series – the characters, the setting and the gardening aspects of the story, even though I'm not a garde

Wendy Tyson has written another stunning book with more twists and turns than the original Labyrinth!

Snow is falling in Winsome and as Megan drives home after pitching her produce to some out of town chefs she comes across a stranded motorist, who turns out to be the niece of a Winsome resident, Merry Chance, when Megan drops Becca (the stranded driver) at Merry's house she ends up witnessing something that is NOT in the spirit of the season, apparently Merry hoped to bring an estranged family b

Seeds of Revenge by Wendy Tyson is an engaging cozy mystery that will leave you wanting more.

Christmas in the small town of Winsome seems beautiful and I was ready to enjoy this cozy mystery.
Was I surprised when this story took a wild turn and left me at the edge of my seat, gripping my kindle tightly, waiting for the next explosive situation.

Megan Sawyer lives on the farm with her grandmother, Bibi. She enjoys her life and her relationship with Denver, the local veterinarian.

The third book in the Greenhouse Mystery series is even better than the first two, I know.. hard to believe.
Organic farmer and ex-lawyer Megan Sawyer is drawn into another murder committed in her small Pennsylvania town. A relative of neighbor Merry Chance is murdered in such a way to suggest it's not quite kosher.
Odd things happen, some mirroring a local author and relative's murder/mystery tales, and it seems the locals have hones in on a suspect...but it doesn't feel right to Megan.

It was definitely Christmas in July, when I was lucky enough to get a chance to read this book. I received this book through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review. Receiving this book in no way altered my opinions, or review of this book. Wendy has a way to make you just fall in love with her character's, as well as wanting to move in to their town. Winsome is having a hard time slowing down with all the secrets that have been lurking. This book is the best one yet in this series. However, ...more

I read an e book ARC from Henery Press through Net Galley.

The town and people of Winsome Pennsylvania are the connecting threads in the Greenhouse Mystery series centered on Megan Sawyer, her Grandmother Bonnie aka Bibi and their Washington Acres Farm and Cafe.

Book 3 features Merry Chase, owner of the garden nursery, and the return of her extended family; Paul, Luke and Becca Fox.

Megan is drawn into the drama when Becca is suspected of murdering her father, Paul.

Another winner from Wendy Tyson, book 3 in her Greenhouse Mysteries series. I love the depth of the characters, the storyline taking place during the holidays, and Megan's various relationships between family/friends/loves. I really enjoy this series and love the way the book pulled me in from the first page.

*I'd like to thank the author/publisher/Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review*

Loved this book so much! Loved the ending. Very complex storyline, lots of twists and turns. Great mystery! Very enjoyable read. Hard to put down
I hope those of you who read mystery series take my suggestions seriously. Wendy Tyson's Seeds of Revenge is a fascinating mystery with well-developed characters in a small town. There's a complex, character-driven plot. But, I'd recommend that you start with A Muddied Murder, the first in the series, if you can. The main character, her family and friends, are so interesting in this third book that I wish I had started with the first one.

This is the third book in the A Greenhouse Mystery series by Wendy Tyson.

This is another one of those series that first pulled me into the cozy genre. I really enjoyed this garden mystery with all its revenge and angst.

In the town of Windsome, things aren’t always what they seem as our main character has learned. Megan Sawyer, is trying to make her greenhouse into a year round endeavor. When she comes back from a trip to Philly, she rescues a stranded motorist and thus gets pulled into

I know some readers really enjoy reading holiday-themed mysteries at the appropriate season, and this mystery takes place during the Christmas season, but I see it more as a wintery than Christmasy story, perhaps because I have spent the last 18 years living in California without ice and snow. Like its predecessors in the Greenhouse Mystery series, it's a well-plotted story, although not very difficult to figure out, and I really like the main character of Megan Sawyer. Part of the reason her ch ...more

On the way home during a snowstorm, she meets a young woman on the road who is coincidentally headed back to Winsome as well so she gives her a ride. It turns out the girl, Becca, is Merry's niece and Merry was hoping to reunite Becca with her father, Paul but when Becca found out, she wanted no part of that, in fact she's convinced that her ...more

Seeds of Revenge is the third book in the Greenhouse Mystery series by Wendy Tyson. Set during the Christmas season in Winsome, Pennsylvania. Meghan is returning from Philly in the middle of a snowstorm. She had ventured to Philly with coolers of greens in hopes of selling them to restaurants so that she could keep her farm and organic café. It’s great to see the same main character and the same setting. Family is a key item in Wendy Tyson’s book and although there are evil doings in this book, ...more

It's the Christmas holidays in Winsome, Pennsylvania, and Megan Sawyer is on her way home after a business trip to Philadelphia. She picks up a stranded motorist on the side of the road during a snowy evening. The young woman, Becca Fox, turns out to be the niece of Merry Chance, and she's been invited to town to sell her products during the season.

But when Megan drops the young woman off at Merry's home, there's another visitor - Becca's father Paul, and while he apparently wants to speak with
I loved BITTER HARVEST so much that I was afraid SEEDS OF REVENGE would be a letdown. Boy, was I wrong! Tyson takes the thrilling nature of her mysteries up a level in such a way that feels utterly natural, but still had me staying up way past my bedtime to finish it.

The usual cast of characters are back and I've been loud and clear about my love for Megan and her grandmother, but the addition of Becca is really lovely. Digging into Becca's father's death leads Megan to dig into her own history

Far-fetched even for a cozy, over-complicated, confusing, and ended with kind of a thud. And will this new character and her "Love Potions", a whole plot thread that went absolutely nowhere, disappear after this book?

I give the series some credit for tolerable writing and an almost realistic view of finances (almost) (kind of), but at least in e-book form this is in severe need of an editor. Not as bad as some I've seen, but more than enough.

STORY - 4.5/5 ( I love this book! It's my favorite in the series so far. I felt like the stakes of the mystery were the highest they've ever been and the clues were awesome. I only docked half a point because I didn't love the ending but I don't know really know why.)

Seeds of Revenge is the third book in the Greenhouse Mystery series by Wendy Tyson, and after reading the first few pages, I found myself wondering "why haven't I read these books before?"

However, things are not all merry and bright in Winsome when former resident Paul Fox returns to town under suspicious circ ...more
The Greenhouse Mystery series is shaping out to be one of my favorite. The books are all connected but can be read as a standalone if a reader doesn't feel like starting from the very beginning.

Seeds of Revenge has our protagonist, Megan in the middle of a murder mystery involving a man whose dealings may have gotten him killed. Add in the possibility of Megan's great aunt being involved, especially since her books plot seems to be the playbook the murder is following. As the mystery continues

This is the third entry in the Greenhouse Mystery series and a superior cozy. Main character Megan Sawyer, formerly a lawyer in the big city but now an organic farmer living with her grandmother in the country, is a nicely drawn heroine. The rest of the cast, which includes Megan's boyfriend hunky Scottish veterinarian Denver Finn, along with Megan's employees, her grandmother Bibi, and various neighbors and friends, are well fleshed out and appealing.

Actually 4.5 stars. What is a love chemist? Find out in the third installment of the Greenhouse mystery series. The protagonist, Megan Sawyer picks up a stranded motorist. This motorist’s estranged father is murdered. Megan needs to clear her aunt.
What a great story. Well written, good characters, and twists. You can pick this up without reading the others. That’s what I did. Thanks to Netgalley, Henery Press, and the author for an opportunity to read this book.
