Reading one of Ann Ripley

Reading one of Ann Ripley's Gardening Mysteries is like reading two books at the same time. What a novel idea to combine usable garden chapters with titles like Houseguests are like Gardens---Both should be low maintenance with devilish mystery chapters.

Ms. Ripley's heroine, Louise Eldridge, is a local TV Gardening host that digs her way through clues as well as her prize garden beds. Often accompanied or, even bailed out, by her family, Louise finds murder popping up all around her, and of course, her surroundings are usually of the garden type. Louise makes gardening take on a whole new meaning

And, you can't miss Ms. Ripley's organic philosophy which comes through in, not only, the garden chapters but in the mysteries themselves. We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
