In this delightful new series by the New York Times bestselling author of the Flower Shop Mysteries, Athena Spencer comes back home to work with her crazy big Greek family at their garden center. But she never expected a return to her roots would mean protecting her family from murder . . . After her divorce, Athena has returned to coastal Michigan to work in her family’s garden center and raise her son, while also caring for a mischievous wild raccoon and fending off her family’s annoying talent for nagging. Working alone at the garden center one night, Athena is startled by a handsome stranger who claims to be the rightful owner of a valuable statue her grandfather purchased at a recent estate sale. But she has even bigger problems on her plate. The powerful Talbot family from whom her pappo├║s bought the statue is threatening to raze the shops on Greene Street’s “Little Greece” to make way for a condo. The recent death of the family’s patriarch already seemed suspicious, but now it’s clear that a murderer is in their midst. Athena will have to live up to her warrior goddess namesake to protect her family from a killer and save their community from ruin . . .
 REVIEW
 *I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

I had way too much fun with this book! We meet Athena who returns home to her roots after a nasty dicvorce. Family embraces her even creating a job for her at the family garden center. One night there alone late she heard a noise outside. When she investigates she finds a man inspecting the statue they have eventually claiming that it was stolen from his family. She gets rid of him hoping that's the end of it. Of course it's not the end of it to say the least. The same man is caught on video fleeing the scene of a recent murder making him a wanted man. He comes to Athena for help and after !ugh convincing she agrees to look into things. What follows is true picture of small towns as we get a wide range of characters introduced in ways to really help you I ow who they are. Athena's family alone could keep you entertained all day. A fantastically written cozy that will keep your attention all the way to the very end. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
