Silent Bud Deadly

Silent Bud Deadly

A new British cozy mystery series from USA Today bestselling author H.Y. Hanna!
Poppy never imagined she'd move to the English countryside and fall in love with a smug, demanding, ginger-haired male. Of course, that was before she discovered that she'd inherited a cottage garden nursery, and before she met a certain talkative orange cat named Oren. Now she's embracing a new life filled with rambling roses, scented herbs, warm summer days... and weeds (lots of weeds), as she attempts to restore the neglected cottage garden to its former glory. When she lands her first gardening job at a beautiful country house, Poppy is delighted to earn some much-needed money. But she barely sets foot in the flowerbed before the meddling neighbour drops dead in front of her--murdered by a lethal poison. Now Poppy finds herself busy weeding out suspects, helped by whacky old inventor Bertie and his feisty terrier Einstein, plus a whole host of nosy villagers... not to mention Nick Forrest, the maverick crime author. But with her clients' flowerbed mysteriously dying and red herrings at every turn, Poppy soon discovers that neither gardening nor sleuthing are as simple as she thinks...
