  • Entertaining

    This is the fifteenth book in the "Lovely Lethal Garden" series, each one a standalone and each one as entertaining as the last. It wasn't very often that Corporal Mack Moreau and Doreen Montgomery went out together even though they were best friends, today they were going to the Orchid Festival which entailed visiting the homes of the competing growers, Doreen was so excited. Doreen had lived in a gilded cage with her soon to be, cheating, ex husband, she was living in a house given to her by her Nan and Mack was teaching her how to cope on her own. Doreen had nothing to do, she had no job or qualifications and money was tight, she did however have a talent for weeding out information and solving cold crime cases, much to the frustration of the long suffering Mack. As with all this series of tongue in cheek books, it wasn't long before the first murder occurred and then they escalated, some cold but some still hot, Doreen was once again to put her life in danger. I love slightly dippy Doreen and the fact that she and dependable Mack are getting even more cosy together. I love her interfering Nan who is always there for Doreen and appears to know everything about everyone in the small town of Kelowna and I love Doreen's menagerie of pets, Mugs the Basset Hound, Goliath the cat and Thaddeus the outrageous parrot. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • Keeps You Guessing & Laughing

    This is another wonderful entry for this series that I'm always thrilled to dive back into. What do they say about best laid plans? Well, that certainly holds true in this new outing for Doreen and the crew. The smartly crafted combination of mystery, drama, humor and twists, quickly pulled me in and had me snatching every spare moment I could to squeeze in a couple more pages. And let us not forget about the slowly simmering and oh, so enticing relationship brewing between Mack and Doreen. This was really just an all around excellent book. It kept me guessing, made me laugh and had me rooting for these beloved characters. This is my independent, impartial review.

  • Orchids and Down Time . . . Until It IS Not

    A local orchid show, a time to relax for Mack and Doreen. Simple, right? Relaxing? Never so simple. Each book of the Lovely Lethal Gardens is a standalone but each builds on the story of Doreen and finding herself, finding out her friendship with Mack. A warm book for all ages, a gentle romance and beloved (and colorful) characters. Unexpected turns are the norm, making it a page turning book of mystery. I look forward to each book in the series.

  • Murder and Love

    Offed in the Orchids is the 15th book in the Lovely Lethal Gardens alphabet series. In each book, Doreen either finds a clue in a garden, or murder has occurred, and the body is found in a garden. Mack is Doreen’s friend and a local police officer. Mack hates it when Doreen gets involved with his current cases. Over time they have come up with an understanding that Doreen won’t get involved in current cases, but she will continue investigating cold cases. Just like in other books, Doreen is threatened by the murderer and her menagerie of pets (parrot, cat, and dog) saves the day. On the personal side, Doreen and Mack have started going on dates leading to a more romantic relationship. Mack has always been frustrated with how Doreen always gets herself in trouble and in this book, you see how much he cares for her and how worried he is about her safety. Unfortunately, due to issues with Doreen’s divorce, Doreen can’t get too involved with Mack until her divorce is worked out. These books are very enjoyable and easy to read. I really like Doreen’s quirkiness and her relationship with Mack. I can’t wait to find out how that all works out. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
