Baker & Taylor
Delighted to undertake a project to redesign her sister's backyard as a respite from her unfaithful husband, teenage terror of a stepson, and a crazed Chihuahua, landscaper Nina Quinn suddenly finds herself in the middle of a bizaare case when her makeover uncovers a couple of inconvenient corpses and her sister's fiancé mysteriously vanishes. Original.


Landscaping is Nina Quinn's business, but trouble seems to be her middle name. Saddled with a recently expelled, faithless local–cop husband, a teenaged terror of a stepson, and the yappiest, most unhousebreakable Chihuahua in captivity, Nina needs a respite –– and the backyard makeover she's undertaking for her sister Maria and Nate, Maria's fiance, may do the trick.

But, of course, Nate vanishes mysteriously, and Nina's gardening magic inadvertently turns up a corpse. And with a thief on the prowl who's preying on the neighborhood elderly, a suspicious Pandora's Box of a package arriving on her doorstep, and yet another body inconveniently turning up, Nina's going to have to dig into her community's dirtiest little secrets to regain her peace and sanity –– if she can manage to stay alive long enough to enjoy it.
