Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0395791235, Hardcover)

Garden photographer Richard Brown spent years enjoying the fruits of others' horticultural labor and planning his own ideal garden in his head. When the time came to plant his fantasy garden on his Vermont property, he found (after several seasons' hard work) that its proportions were out of whack and the plants were wrong for the climate. Back to square one for the gardener. Brown describes--at length, and not without humor--how he has learned to work with his garden, not wrestle with it.

Though this is a book of gorgeous photographs, not one of them is of Brown's garden--which is slightly frustrating, like hearing the beauty regimen of a veiled lady described. But Brown's gentle insistence that a gardener must, first of all, be true to his or her own space does sink in. In the end, this is less a book about his garden than about yours.

"After nearly being killed by both a hired hit man and her former secretary, Agatha Raisin could use some low-key cases. So when Robert Smedley walks through the door, determined to prove that his wife is cheating, Raisin Investigations immediately offers to help. Trouble is, Agatha hates divorce cases - especially when the client is as pompous as Smedley - but she has a business to run and she's not about to turn away a paying customer. Unfortunately for Agatha, Mabel Smedley appears to be the perfect wife - young and pretty and a regular volunteer at church." "Although Smedley's case doesn't look promising, Agatha's attentions are diverted when she stumbles across the body of missing teenager Jessica Bradley. In a sudden gesture of kindness (and good public relations), Agatha offers to investigate Jessica's death free of charge."."Agatha's two biggest cases are turned upside down when Robert Smedley is poisoned. The prime suspect, his sainted wife, Mabel, immediately hires Agatha to find the real killer." "With the help of her old friend Sir Charles Fraith and some newly hired staff, Agatha Raisin sets off on another crime-solving adventure in the English Cotswolds."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
