Kate Adams has lost her friend in mentor to death. The police and the coroner have declared the death of Daisy Leacock as an accidental death by poisoning of herbs. Kate is convinced that Daisy would never make such a mistake or take her life because of her faith and knowledge of herbs. Kate goes to the police and meets detective Tom Parker who has just returned to town and convinces him to consider investigating Daisy’s death unofficially. When Kate and Tom meet sparks begin to fly and so do the mishaps.
This is a gentle mystery that began slowly for me. As the story progressed, I began to wonder who killed Daisy and the story began to move. Towards the end of the novel, I couldn’t put it down dying to know who did it. The budding romance between Kate and Tom kept the story moving forward and became clear that this is the beginning of a series.
I would recommend this to any reader looking for a gently mystery. If you love mysteries that are fast-moving from the beginning this is not the book for you. If you love just a light mystery with a subplot of romance this is the book for you.
Note: I received an electronic version of this title through NetGalley from Revell for an honest review.
