    One thought on “Roots of Murder”

    1. A cozy small-town murder mystery centered around flowers. Not really gardening, as the cover states. Bretta Solomon has recently lost her husband. She runs one of the small town's flower shops with a friend. When her flower supplier, an Amish man named Isaac, whose brother bought Bretta's family farm in the next town, dies under mysterious circumstances, Bretta is both saddened and alarmed. Isaac's brother, Evan, begs her to find out what happened, and Bretta is pulled into a mystery where half [...]

    2. This is a book about friendship and three women from different circumstances who have a gradening business. When the ex-husband of one of the friends turns up dead in the gardening bed they are working on, all clues point to the friend. Of course, there are many suspects, many motives, involvement by the police, etc but when it comes down to it, can you trust your friend or not? I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Can't wait to read the next one.

    3. Kinda cute - it's the first in a series about a woman that owns a flower shop, lost her husband a little over a year prior and lost a lot of weight in the process. She's good friends with someone in the Amish community who bought her childhood home. Bretta is curious and wants to help her amish friend find the person who murdered her brother. The funniest part was when she filled her gas tank for $12!

    4. Bretta, a widow, is running a flower shop in a small town. When a local Amish supplier of her flowers is murdered, she gets drawn into the investigation.I found Bretta to be a bit abrasive and not very compelling. The story itself had a few interesting turns, but it was too predictable. Plus, there were some very "preachy" parts that got on my nerves.

    5. This was a good, weekend read, about a florist who is newly widowed in a small town. She is known for "helping" her husband, who was a detective and her busybody ways are still kicking. She has some dealings with the Amish in Missouri, a flower wholesaler, farmers and a funeral director. All in all, Roots of Murder is an entertaining mystery.

    6. I'm tearing through this series. Sad that Harrison hasn't published a new book since 2005! I find the protagonist funny and sharp. The mysteries are fun to read and VERY quick. I wish she would write more!

    7. I read this book ten years ago, but just this morning found the concise note I wrote when I finished: 'Too much metaphor and simile use, but not a bad book.'

    8. JANIS…WHERE DID YOU GO??? I loved all the books in this series…come back and tell us more about Britta….

    9. Great find for me - a new "detective" series to read! Enjoy the gardening / florist theme and the character is someone I could call a friend.

    10. The opportunity for a great cozy is here in this storyline, but the characters are too one-dimensional and the dialogue to predictable. Falls flat when it could have soared.
