About the Book
Fiona Knox is in a season of loss. The loss of her fiancé, her flower shop, and her beloved godfather, Ian. But when she finds out that “Uncle Ian” has left his home and property in Scotland to her, she heads there to claim her inheritance. However, upon her arrival, she finds a man murdered in her uncle’s beloved garden and the garden itself seems to have magical elements that are somehow tied to her. Can Fiona find out what happened to the deceased man and also what is going on with this magical place?
I’ve always felt Amanda Flower writes a great cozy mystery and this is no exception. All of the elements are there. A charming setting, a main character you want to root for, and a magical story to tie it all together. It was a great book and I can’t wait to see where the author takes the series next.
