Would love to read this series

What an interesting tale! The title first grabbed my eye because I love roses so much. It isn't my usual mystery either - it doesn't have as much action as I normally like and the beginning was slow, but it felt so right for this story.

The story revolves around Alex and Kate Sheppard. They buy a new house and discover in their new garden a beautiful blue rose. A blue rose does not currently exist - so this is quite a find and many people are interested in getting their hands on this new rose.

Lawrence Kingston, who is a gardening expert comes in to help them figure out what to do. Here's where I admit at first Kingston rubbed me the wrong way - he's very formal, very smart and seems to know everything about everything. But by the end, I had come to realize what a gem he is!

I have already checked out the next book in teh series and can't wait to read it! ( )
