The Bluebonnet Betrayal, a great addition to the Potting Shed Mystery Series by Marty Wingate, just came out on Amazon. Living in Texas, and a lover of flowers, I was drawn to the cover featuring bluebonnets and Pru’s dog, Boris. Marty’s main character, Pru Park, talks about driving around the Hill Country of Texas looking for bluebonnets, and I immediately identified with it! Yes, I’ve done that with my family. It’s quite a treat when you all of a sudden come upon a giant patch of deep blue flowers. It’s just one of the reasons I love Springtime! Like that sapphire field over the next hill, this book was a found treasure.
My Review: 5 Stars
Bluebonnets are one of my favorite flowers, so I was excited to see them in the title of a cozy mystery.
Pru Parke, a Texan living in England gets the chance to work with a group of women from Austin to create a unique Texas garden display at the Chelsea Garden Show. The flower that will be featured will be the beautiful bluebonnets of Texas. When one of the members of the Texas group is found dead, Pru and her loveable English husband investigate the murder. There were so many things I liked about this story! This well-written mystery is a challenge to solve although the murderer was on my “possible suspect” list. I especially loved the ending chapters. Marty Wingate had me at bluebonnets!
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
