This is a very enjoyable cozy mystery novel. We get to follow Shelby as she performs a complete overhaul on her life after being left at the alter. She resigns as a teacher and signs up to be the gardener/activity director at a well-to-do retirement home. Things are not looking good though when on her first day she stumbles across one of the residents dead in the greenhouse. Feeling unsafe with a murderer around Shelby, family, and friends (both old and new) decide to investigate which leads to a rather funny yet interesting string of events. I giggled quite a few times at their antics which kept the book light hearted enough to counteract the actual violence that kept happening. The story is very well written with strong characters that keep the reader engaged while still guessing what will happen next. I highly recommend it to fans of cozy mysteries and give it 4/5 stars.
