Flowers and Foul Play A Magic Garden Mystery #1Aig’s fixation on Uncle Ian’s loyal caretaker Hamish as a prime suspect that really makes her worried As Fiona strolls the town she uickly realizes there are a whole bouuet of suspects much likely to have killed Alastair Croft the dead lawyer who seems to have had enemies than friends Now it’s up to Fiona to clear Hamish’s name before it’s too late in Flowers and Foul Play national bestselling author Amanda Flower’s enchanting first Magic Garden myster. I absolutely loved this book It has the elements that I enjoyed so much in the Magical Bookshop series but it was set in beautiful Scotland near the sea Fiona Knox's uncle and godfather Ian MacCallister had left her his cottage and grounds After a disastrous folding of her flower shop in Nashville TN and losing her fiance to their cake decorator Fiona had nothing left to lose She packed herself up and went to Scotland only to find her uncle's dead lawyer in the garden and the handsome chief inspector looking at the elderly caretaker as a person of interest Fiona had to learn about the garden as well since a letter outlining everything from Ian was somehow lost in the mail or was living at her parents' house Trying to get police attention away from Hamish take care of the magic garden which thrived beautifully now that she was there and uestioning possible suspects took most of her first few days in Scotland I had suspected the person behind it but definitely didn't know the motive behind it The showdown was pretty exciting and the ending was very satisfying and sweet I loved the last couple of sentences and had leaky eyes even though I had suspected that all along I won't spoil it you'll just have to read it and see My favorite characters were Fiona of course Hamish and Neil Craig the chief inspector Hamish had a few secrets but I also knew down deep he was a good man I'm hoping something definitely develops between Neil and Fiona He really seemed to care about her as he gave her the usual warnings about investigating I think he honestly was worried about her than worried that she'd mess up his case The character of the police chief was kind of a comic relief at least to me He was a volunteer and seemed so ridiculous I had to giggle at him once when he stormed into the pub saying if he'd been in charge of this murder it would have been solved I kind of pictured Constable George's character on the Murdoch Mysteries only with a little bravery to his voice lolI voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book provided by Crooked Lane via NetGalley I'm anxious to read the next book and am happy to have been approved by the publisher to read and review it as well
