Very fun gardening-themed cozy. The second in the White House Garden mystery is now out: The Scarlet Pepper.

I like a mystery novel that surprises me. Most of the time I figure out who did it very quickly. I had it narrowed to 2 people. Let me just say, I was wrong and should have gone with (to me) the more obvious.

A very fun, light and clean read. This book is a good read for teens and above, although teens might find it a bore because the characters are about adults and as you expect polictics play a role in the theme of this book. There is love, heartache, drama, and humor all rolled into this book. Read this book, I don't think you will be disappointed.
