The story continues Fern Green's career as a garden designer, and her relationship with hunky Welsh detective, DI Ross Drummond. When the body of a newborn baby is discovered in the long-neglected garden of Plas Graig, Fern discovers that the secrets of the past still haunt the living. Now a girl has been found murdered in nearby woods, and the echoes of past wrongs can no longer be stifled. But Fern soon discovers that there are some in the village who would prefer the past remained buried. As she tries to find a link with an apparent suicide six years before, her quest to unearth the truth puts her own life in danger.

"This is so well-written! The storyline begins on a rather quiet note and then slowly builds up to the discovery of the baby's bones in the garden which of course makes the reader want to read on and discover what exactly is going on "
"I loved everything about this excerpt - from the setting (the damp, rainy countryside, and let's not forget the potentially beautiful gardens), to the sense of loss woven throughout the excerpt, and then to the characters. There is almost a barely concealed anger to Owen, and if you enjoy mysteries that immediately sends up red flags ... And then there is the mystery of the baby found in the garden ... There is a wonderful sense of familiarity here as well, I instantly felt like I could know the characters, which made me invest in them right away. Excellent"

5* Reviews on Amazon
"If you like your crime novels cosy with an unusual background then I would recommend this book and its predecessor, Death in the Physic Garden "
"More gorgeous gardening from the talented and capable Fern Green. I fell in love with her in the previous book (Death in the Physic Garden), and this time around that love deepened. An enjoyable read... I look forward to another instalment"
