There’s something growing in the garden . . . and it’s not a flower. A mystery is growing in the garden!

Greenhouse expert and horticulture Professor Heather Moore gets a new lease on life when she inherits her grandparents’ estate in New England.

The garden she loved as a child has seen better days, but she is determined to restore it to its former beauty with the help of her four-legged companions.

Knee deep in soil, Heather digs up an even bigger challenge—human remains.

Since she discovered the remains, she should get to solve the case, right?

It will likely land her in harm’s way with her family’s legacy hanging in the balance.

To make matters worse, a fellow flower enthusiast, Lars Oslo, walks into her life at the worst time.
He is the man of her dreams, there’s no doubt about it, but can she juggle the case and a new romance?
