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?

Love this series!

I love all of H.Y Hanna’s series, and this is no exception! I enjoy these characters and the antics they get into, mixed with just enough humor, charm and mystery!

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!

Thouroughly Enjoyed One

I loved the descriptions of the gardens. So English. The manor character was so ridiculous she seemed cartoonish. However this only added the lighthearted tone of the book. I really had a chuckle at some parts. Such imagination! This was just what I needed. I’m enjoying all of H.Y. Hanna stories, and Pearl Hewitt is the perfect narrator. Perfect voice for all of the stories. I look forward to listening to more!

Love this series

Once again a winner. And some puppy love. Pearl narrates beautifully. Poppy and Birdie had me in stitches. Love this story.

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.
