    One thought on “Bindweed”

    1. Last book in the Bretta Solomon Gardening Series (as far as I can tell--this was published in 2005 and I cannot find a website or blog for Janis in order to contact her regarding her writing status). I had read this before but for some reason did not mark off my list. So I reread it. This was a good read. The murderer definitely used interesting ways to kill his victims. I really wish that Janis would continue this series. If anyone knows of a way to contact this author please let me know.

    2. Although the prose was somewhat flowery(get it?, get it?) it was an enjoyable mystery. Didn't know till almost the end of this whodunit.

    3. Before she died, Agnes Sutton made arrangements with several shop owners that her slow-witted son Toby would do odd jobs for them. All of the shop owners, including flower shop owner Bretta Solomon, like Toby and are happy to oblige. Toby was liked by all, which is why it's so perplexing that someone would murder him by rigging a hornet's nest set to fall and break open when Toby opened his bedroom door. Even more perplexing, the motive seems to be that Toby discovered someone was stealing his m [...]

    4. This mystery is part of a series featuring flower shop owner Bretta Solomon. Set in River City, Missouri this series is billed as gardening mysteries.A young man with developmental disabilities, and who has lived on his own since his mother died is the first victim. Toby seems harmless, making spending money by working for a number of town merchants that his mother introduced him to before her death. Toby sweeps sidewalks, washes windows and does other small odd jobs. But someone considered him [...]

    5. In this gardening mystery, florist Bretta Solomon tries to solve the mystery of who would want to kill the nice, somewhat retarded adult helper of her shop and those along the main street in their small town. She is also trying to deal with her father coming back into her life and wondering why he keeps pressing this new decorator on her. Although the mystery was pretty good, I doubt the ending was really guessable from the info given; also Bretta was a bit too brusque and obtuse about her fathe [...]

    6. This is my favorite of the Gardening Mysteries so far. I would rather give it 4.5 and the others 3.5, something like this, or give stars out of 10 than 5, but, there we are. As "cozies" I'm willing to rate them in their own place in the world, you see. They compare to themselves, not necessarily to literature at large. But this one had something more to it, some striking depth, almost from the opening page, and I had a real sense of how much more this author can do with a story if she continues [...]

    7. It's my own fault for picking up mysteries with cover art and blurbs that let me know they are not just "cozies" but probably "sillies." I keep wanting to find another M.C. Beaton, an author that can write a light mystery well, but it's really very hard. Bindweed is Chick Lit with a mystery twist, an improbable story line and the solution is ridiculous. You might enjoy it, but don't say you haven't been warned.

    8. Although I enjoyed this last book of the series, I was rather disappointed that Bailey didn't have more input into this last murder mystery. I thought it would have concluded the series more, seeing that he and Bretta's relationship grew together in solving the murders.Also, I wanted to read more about how the boarding house was evolving and have it completed at the end. The book kind of left me wanting another book to follow.

    9. This was a simple little mystery, but nice for a light read, entertaining and clean. Of course I loved the gardening and flower references. Also written by an author in Missouri, and set in a small Missouri town, so it was easy to picture having lived in one myself. The quirks of the small town people were well described!

    10. Miss Marple in South Carolina! Read this because I found it in the beach house we were staying in. Simple, fast read, and enjoyable enough if you can get past the main character constantly missing clues that are as obvious as an elephant in a swimming pool. I learned a bunch about various poisonous plants though, and really icky ways to die - poison ivy bubble bath anyone? Yeeech!!!

    11. Although this is the 6th book in the series it was my first. It was a fun little mystery I enjoyed the characters. If I happened across another one of her books, I would read it.Most of the book I read are free from various sources.

    12. Everything I expect a cozy to be. I didn't know it was part of a series until later (oops) and I can't say that I would go back and read all of them but this book was perfectly fine for a lazy Saturday afternoon.
