Heroine is a widow who had several miscarriages. her mother killed her husband secretly.

Hero, pretends to be a researcher on her behalf, because she studies plant genetics. He has a dying brother.

Moving to Unsolved since it sounds like you're looking for a specific book.

The Countess Conspiracy by Courtney Milan seems to match your description.

Reviewers on Amazon say, "The heroine, Violet, suffered nineteen miscarriages before her husband died..." "[The hero] Sebastian is known throughout Victorian England as the preeminent expert on the science of inheritance (after Charles Darwin)...he's actually a mouthpiece of Violet, who made all of the discoveries but can't lecture or teach because, as a woman, no one would pay any attention to her." "Sebastian has shocked some of Victorian society with his scientific presentations of the reproductive qualities of plant life. At the end of chapter one, he tells Violet that he will no longer misrepresent himself as the discoverer, when it is she who is the scientist."

If that's not it, what year did you read this book?

What's the time period and location/country?
