Part-time garden shop owner/part-time forensic botanist, Peggy Lee is trying to discover if the death of Ann Fletcher 20 years ago was an accident – or foul play. In return, she hopes to receive more information about her first husband’s death. She knows John Lee was murdered, but questions have arisen as to why he was killed. She is working with a private detective who stumbles across his own feet, but her Internet friend, Nightflyer, says that Harry Fletcher has the answers. When Harry is murdered by convallatoxin, from the lily of the valley plant, Peggy begins to understand her role in everything. Now she has to stay alive long enough to prove her theories – and keep her son, Paul out of trouble too!
Lethal Lily by Joyce and Jim Lavene is the eighth release in their well-reviewed Peggy Lee Garden Mystery Series. This is the first time I’ve really read this series, and I definitely enjoyed it! Peggy is an enjoyable character. It was fascinating to learn about forensic botany as well as all the different plants throughout the book. I liked the mystery and the plot kept me hooked and wanting to solve the mystery. This is a series that I need to go back and read, as I really think I’d enjoy the earlier books as well. Lethal Lily is a wonderful cozy mystery, perfect for curling up and reading on a nice spring afternoon.
