Description
The good old ladies of Darling, Alabama, are determined to keep their town beautiful, even during the Great Depression, and in this first installment in their series (from the creator of the China Bayles and the Beatrix Potter mysteries), the Darling Dahlias garden club is off to a good start, having been bequeathed a new clubhouse and garden. But life in Darling is not all garden parties and rosemary lemonade, and when local blonde bombshell Bunny Scott is found in a suspicious car wreck, the Dahlias decide to dig up a few secrets.

"Cozy fans will be delighted to learn that the prolific [Susan Witting] Albert—known for her clever puzzles, engaging characters, love of nature, and outstanding historic research—is debuting yet another exceptional series. This one begins in May 1930 in the small town of Darling, Alabama (population 907). The Dahlias comprise the 12 members of a gardening club dedicated to beautifying their town while struggling to survive the Depression. Even small towns can have their share of mysteries, and Darling is no exception—fortunately, the Dahlias are sleuths as well as gardeners. Before long, they are searching for an escaped prisoner and a stolen car and investigating troubles at the local bank. And then there is the mysterious death of a young woman. By the end of the account, the mysteries are solved, and readers are thoroughly smitten by Lizzy, Verna, Ophelia, Myra May, Bessie, and the other garden club members. Hints on how to stretch resources (1930s style) and favorite recipes from the period are also included."—Booklist (starred review)
