A Thyme to Die Peggy Lee and her gardening friends have managed to persuade the International Flower Show to move to Charlotte from Atlanta this year. Excited and enthusiastic, Peggy agrees to step into the role as director of the event, but on opening day, a good friend of hers is found dead in the middle of the show. Dr. Aris Abbuto, an orchid grower from South Africa, has been shot and buried in a makeshift grave covered with pink thyme. Peggy is especially devastated since he came at her personal invitation. The presence of the pink thyme, a plant once used for ancient burial rites, tells her it's possible one of the show's growers may be involved in his death. She plans to work with the Charlotte Police on this one, in her position of contract forensic botanist, and is surprised to learn of the Charlotte FBI's interest in the case-which means her husband, Steve is involved too. Peggy is focused on finding her friend's killer and running the flower show with hundreds of sometimes disgruntled vendors. Her questions will find a devious plot with her friend and his young daughter, unwittingly, at the heart of it. Asking the wrong questions can be dangerous, however, as Peggy knows so well. If she isn't careful, finding her friend's killer might also lead to a flower-covered grave for her. Buried By Buttercups Peggy Lee, owner of The Potting Shed garden shop, is involved in another murder investigation. After two years of being on the 'outs' with the Charlotte Police, new homicide Lieutenant Al McDonald, asks for her help. The choice of weapon for the killer is flower poison, starting with angel's trumpet. No one knows botanical poisons as well as Peggy. The investigation turns personal for her when she realizes the killer has used poison to draw her out. Two men with her dead husband's name have already died. Is the killer working toward getting rid of Peggy too?
