Publisher's Summary

Poppy is settling into life in an English village and gaining some green fingers at last as she restores the beautiful cottage garden nursery she's inherited. When she meets a wealthy dog lover at the village fête and is hired to create a "canine scent garden", the future looks rosy...until the day ends with a vicious killing, and she finds herself spade-deep in a murder investigation once again.

Meanwhile, Einstein the terrier has fallen head-over-paws for a pampered poodle, and Poppy has her hands full keeping him out of trouble. With vandals attacking her cottage and orders for flowers flooding in, she barely has time for sleuthing! But when unexpected help comes from her mad scientist neighbor Bertie, as well as crime author Nick Forrest and his talkative cat Oren, Poppy is sure she's found the killer.

The only problem is - with false clues and suspects galore, could she be barking up the wrong tree?

Hilarious!

I was laughing out loud throughout much of this book. Bertie is easily one of my favorite characters. He's hilarious! What a character. <3 There were times I was vocally upset over Poppy's choices, but in the end, her choices turned out to be for the best, so I was happy again. My favorite book in the series so far!

Pleasant, Fun Read

I enjoy this series. It’s a stress free fun read that has enough mystery to make me think but, happily, is not filled with gore. Not only is Hannah’s writing delightful, Hewitt’s reading is excellent!

Great read/listen

Doom and Bloom (English Cottage Garden Mysteries #3), my 20th read/listen from author H.Y. Hanna & the third book in her new English Cottage Garden Series. An enjoyable cozy mystery. I love the narrator’s British accent; I was impressed and enjoyed the vocal variety & inflections of narrator Pearl Hewitt, especially her oh so cute animal sounds & really enjoyed the read. Cozy mystery/romance, captivating primary character, what other blurbs can I use to describe these books? Oh well, buy the book, read the books, get into a good author and some good characters as I have. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. This series is so good that we listened to it on Black Friday while traveling to our daughter's home in Toledo. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

So Enjoyable, Fun, Never a Dull Moment!

I Love every thing about these story's! The characters are all delightful. Adore the wonders of Oran the cat. Funny little dog named Einstein. Poppy chose a whole new life full of wonder and beauty. Such determination to learn and work hard with blind faith. Not many writters touch my heart as H. Y. does. Pearl Hewitt is the best and most Amazing narrator I've Ever heard!! Every character comes to life and I can see them before my very eyes!!! Even the animals are truly belevable!! My hope is all of H.Y. Hanna and Pearl Hewitts series never end!! Thank You for sharing your talented gifts with us!!

Great series. Loads of fun.

A thoroughly enjoyable third book in the series.
The mystery had me guessing and I really enjoyed watching Poppy develop her business and become part of the community. I thought the idea of a scent garden for the dog was a cute and interesting idea.
I love the side characters in this series especially Bertie and Nick as well as their four legged friends.
This a fun series that gets better with every book.
I'm looking forward to reading book four.

I voluntarily reviewed an advance reading audio copy.

just... please don't

I have now listened to THREE books in this series. Why I don't know.

My advice to you is simple. Please don't.
