Tuesday, March 1, 2022

Against her better judgement Maggie is convinced by her husband to try and prove Rochelle innocent in the murder of a young girl in the lavender fields where the girl worked. Her husband is old fashioned and they have 2 children. The girl is absolutely impossible-a normal teenage girl--the son wants to be an actor. Maggie is forever trying to keep the peace between the children and their father. He is at his wits end.

Rochelle had been locked up but was finally released. She befriends the daughter--but what she does--you are never going to beleive it. As for who actually murdered the young girl and also a mentally challenged young man--you really are not going to beleive it!!

This is truly a clean murder mystery with a delicious recipe at the end which I enjoyed and think you will too.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Evil doesn't always have a bad smell.

In fact, sometimes it's downright heavenly.

When a young homeless girl is found dead in the lavender field she was hired to harvest a friend of Laurent's is arrested for her murder. In spite of her personal misgivings, Maggie promises her husband to work with the local authorities to either clear Rochelle or find the real killer.

When Maggie begins to look closer into the business of lavender production it soon becomes clear that much more sinister forces are at play than drawer sachets and soap.

Will Maggie listen to the facts or what her gut is telling her about the crime? And when a well-guarded secret threatens to bring down everything she and Laurent have built in France, will she make the right choice—even if it goes against everything she believes in?
