    Love her books, great story lines.

    I loved this book and I like the writing style of this author. She keeps you on your seat with many plots happening at the same time so a person doesn't get bored with story. I've read all 7 in this series in 1 week. Patiently waiting for the next books. Can't come fast enough for my liking. Great job Dale love your writing style.

    Lovely read

    This is the second book that I have read from the Lovely Lethal Gardens series but as it is a standalone book, the fact that I hadn't read all the previous ones didn't detract from my enjoyment, This is a lovely gentle story, Doreen Montgomery is a pleasantly eccentric divorcee who was married to a very wealthy man so consequently lacked any domestic skills, her equally eccentric grandmother has moved into a nursing home and left her cluttered house to Doreen. Since moving to Kelowna Doreen has decluttered her grandmothers house, started a gardening business and set herself up as an armature sleuth. Corporal Mack Moreau of the police department has befriended Doreen and is teaching her to cook, he is amused and exasperated in equal measures at Doreen's interference in cold cases making more work for Mack and his team. This story is based around houses that have been burned to the ground and the charred bodies in them......who are the victims and who are the arsonists and what is the reason? Doreen suspects that Steve Albrough, a fixer for a local biker group is responsible for the murders and much to Mack's despair she sets out to gain proof. Doreen's life is in danger, can Mack save her ? there is definitely a gentle chemistry between Doreen and Mack.. Quite a lot of this sometimes amusing, but also serious story, is tongue in cheek, Doreen along with Thadeus the parrot. Muggs the dog and Goliath the cat add to the humour. If you are looking for nail biting suspense or hot romance then perhaps this isn't the book for you, but if you are looking for something different but equally enjoyable then I can recommend this book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    So much happening in such a short time

    Still smarting from the headwound she suffered in Book 5, Doreen now faces false rumors that she fabricated the allegations against her former new friend Penny Jordan. With the support of her good friend Corporal Mack , along with her 2-legged, 4-legged, and winged family members and an unexpected diversion from her neighbor’s finding a gun in his gardenias, Doreen is able to resolve completely several open questions from the cases in Books 5 and 6, as well as some new, now-related cold cases. Never a dull moment, even on the days when she is determined to rest so she can finish cleaning out her old house now that the valuable antique pieces have gone to the auction house. A good mix of excitement, danger, and exhausting housework in this, Book 7 of the Lovely Lethal Gardens series. Can’t wait to see what happens next!

    What crime will Doreen solve this time?

    I have read a few cosy mysteries but none have ever come close to Dale's books. I love this series so much. The funny relationship between Doreen and Mack has me giggling sometimes. They like each other even though Doreen has the habit of getting into trouble or rather trouble finds Doreen. Her nan is so hilarious and I love Thaddeus the parrot, Mugs the dog and not forgetting Goliath the cat. So a gun was found, Steve issued some threats, acts of arson were found, a deathbed confession was recorded and a person who should be dead is not dead but wants someone else dead. ‍♀️ Read it and it won’t be so confusing lol. A great read with some laughs thrown in and a blossoming relationship that may or may not go far. Can’t wait for book 8.

    Truly embodies "cozy mystery"

    (4.5) I want to live next door to "Bone Lady" and her fur babies. I want to see Mack up close and personal and go lay a few bets with Nan. I feel like I know Doreen and I want to know her better. I have a few things she could certainly investigate for me :) This is another enjoyable read one that takes you out of your day to day as you go along for a fun ride as Doreen delves into more mysteries and cold cases. She has really grown since Arsenic in the Azaleas. I like her thinking things through, going the extra mile for loved ones and her growing friendship with Mack. I wanted to give this a 5 but I just couldn't understand how Steven got a way with so much when he seems to be a real clutz, and fool. It just nagged at me. Gun in the Gardenias made me smile, gave me family, a mystery and warmth. It truly embodies "cozy mystery" Thank you Dale, Booksprout and Valley Publishing for the arc. I freely volunteer my opinion.
