With hundreds flocking to her inaugural garden party, meticulous Lilly Jayne hasn‚Äôt left a single petal out of place. But the picture-perfect gathering turns unruly upon the arrival of Merilee Frank, Lily‚Äôs ex-husband‚Äôs catty third wife. Merilee lives for trouble, so no one is surprised after she drinks too much, shoves a guest into the koi pond, and gets escorted off the property. The real surprise comes days later‚Äîwhen Merilee is found dead in a pile of mulch. Lilly wishes she could stick to pruning roses and forget about Merilee‚Äôs murder‚Äîuntil her best friend and ex become suspects in the overgrown homicide case. Now, aided by the Garden Squad, an unlikely group of amateur crime solvers with a knack for planting, Lilly knows she has limited time to identify the true culprit and restore order to Goosebush‚Äîbecause if the murderer‚Äôs plot isn‚Äôt nipped in the bud, another victim could be pushing up daisies!
