DescriptionThe New York Times bestselling Novel Idea Mysteries make their return with Lila Wilkins, literary agent and "murder magnet," planning a book signing garden party. But things aren't coming up roses when she has to weed out a dangerous killer... The owner of the Novel Idea Literary Agency is thrilled when former local boy and popular television show host Damian York returns to Inspiration Valley, North Carolina, to launch his new gardening book. But Lila is less than excited about the hubbub when she sees her mounting to-do list. Between planning York's gala and sprucing up her yard for another event, she's spread too thin--especially after she finds a skull buried in her flowerbeds. As Lila's macabre discovery leads to other secrets hidden in Inspiration Valley's past, a member of the local garden club is found slumped over her prize roses--murdered. Now it's up to Lila to dig through old mysteries and new clues to unearth a murderer before someone else is found pushing up daisies...

Praise for the New York Times Bestselling Novel Idea Mysteries "Food fame can come at a price, as Paula Deen, Nigella Lawson, and Martha Stewart can testify. But death?...[A] suspenseful story written with delectable style."--Richmond Times-Dispatch "Nice plotting for the characters to work with, interesting sub-plots as well, and enough clues to make your head spin."--Kings River Life Magazine "Inspiration Valley is a town everyone would love to visit, from Walden Woods Circle to the Expresso Yourself Coffee Shop to the Magnolia B&B and everywhere in between. Lucy Arlington has created the perfect setting for this cozy series."--Escape with Dollycas "Mysteries, books, and food just go hand-in-hand...A charming story."--Lesa's Book Critiques "A wonderfully crafted tome that kicked up the suspense a notch as the pages progressed towards a finale worthy of this terrific novel...[A] fabulous series."--Dru's Book Musings "This cozy debut...excels at describing bucolic North Carolina. Think Kate Carlisle for her intergenerational ensemble style or Mark de Castrique's series for regional Tar Heel flavor."--Library Journal
