The Bluebonnet Betraya (Potting Shed Mystery, #5)The Bluebonnet Betraya by Marty Wingate
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An intriguing cozy set in England, specifically the Chelsea area of London, by accomplished and prolific author Marty Wingate, whose mysteries are right on target every single time. Transplanted Texan Pru Parke is tapped to help out at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show. She isn't sure why, but an opportunity to garden is never rejected, and she's delighted to assist. She certainly is not expecting to be the temporary person-in-charge, nor could she expect a vicious murder to occur in the confines of the area being prepared by the Austin [TX] Rock Garden Society. But Pru also cannot resist a mystery on her very doorstep (figuratively) especially when the deceased continues to address her. So with the help of husband Christopher, former Met Detective Chief Inspector, she is off to discover and uncover the truth.

I especially appreciate this series. the Potting Shed Mysteries (this is #5) because the protagonist Pru is fiftyish, married for the first time, deeply in love with an equally devoted husband, and although an American native, feels at home in England. I am exposed to so much of the scenery and culture of the English through reading these excellent stories.
