Killing Weeds
by Joyce and Jim Lavene

The cast of characters and the story line will keep you on the edge of your seat.
~Shelley’s Book Case​

The mystery was interesting and full of twists and turns, the characters were likable without being too perfect, and I’m not sure there’s a more perfect time to read a book that centers around gardening!
~I Wish I Lived In a Library

I love this series by Joyce and Jim Lavene… I love flowers and gardening so this series is perfect for me. I loved all of the floral descriptions as well as the gardening info.

Fun, colorful characters, a furry friend, and, or course, a murder. One that wasn’t easy to solve. I had an idea, then I didn’t, then I did.

The Peggy Lee series is the series that started me loving Joyce and Jim’s books…The novel is fast paced and fun, and just when you think that everything is wrapping up, there’s more.
~A Chick Who Reads

This is a fast paced, complicated mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end — with an additional end complication that guarantees you won’t want to miss whatever happens next.

It’s spring in Charlotte, North Carolina, home of forensic botanist and garden shop owner, Peggy Lee. This spring has been beautiful, as always, with flowering trees and blue skies.

But a killer is on the loose, and seems determined to destroy everyone and everything she cares about.

When her garden shop, the Potting Shed, is brutally vandalized, Peggy doesn’t realize that it is only the beginning. Her son, Paul, who has been moonlighting as a private detective to investigate the death of his father, John Lee, is suspected of murder when a mink coat lined with poison kills the woman who is wearing it.

Peggy identifies the particularly virile blend of botanical poisons in the coat. Unfortunately, her work as a specialist with plant poisons makes Paul even more interesting to the police. When attacks against her and her family continue, Peggy must go back through her years of sleuthing to finger the person responsible . . . before it’s too late.
