PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Interesting Books to Your Attention

The Malice Plant
Check this one out. How could I resist a book that reminds someone of my own work? This is the first of a new cozy series that I highly recommend. The Malice Plant eBook: Ainy Rainwater: Kindle Store: "Gardening with intent to kill.... Ainy Rainwater's fast-paced and witty mystery is a winner. Her Cedar Lake reminds me of Bill Crider's delightful small-town Texas, and she handles the gardening aspects of the story with such a sure hand she made me believe in the malice plant." Lillian Stewart Carl, author of the Jean Fairbairn/Alasdair Cameron mystery

After Ivy Willowby dies in her garden with a Malice Plant in her hand, Rosemary Wilde is stunned to find she's the beneficiary of Ivy's will---if she outlives the survivorship clause. With potential heirs buzzing around like angry bees, burglaries, and unexpected liaisons, the Cedar Lake Garden club isn't lacking either dirt or manure. But who---or what---killed Ivy? When Rosemary decides to test the "curse" of the Malice Plant, she finds there's more than enough malice to go around.
