Joyce and Jim Lavene. Poisoned Petals. New York: Berkley, 2007.

In Poisoned Petals, the third of the Peggy Lee Garden Mysteries, botanist Peggy’s Spring is a busy one. She is juggling teaching responsibilities, work at The Potting Shed, and her romance with boyfriend Steve. When the “accidental” death of an old friend–and a fellow botanist–is followed by his brother’s mysterious death only a few weeks later, Peggy adds more to her plate and starts poking around in both cases. Plant-based clues and the fact that both men were tied to the same charity add more fuel to the mystery, and hints dropped by Peggy’s online chess partner and sometime-informant, Nightflyer, help her on her quest for the truth.
