Holiday Gift Guide #12 - The Blue Rose by Anthony Eglin
I am in the middle of this book, part of a series of "English Garden Mysteries", but I wanted to tell you about it, even before I reach the end.
A great combination of gardening and mystery, The Blue Rose, tells the story of a couple who, upon purchasing and refurbishing an old parsonage garden, come across a once in a lifetime discovery...a blue rose.
I am in Chapter 9 and things are beginning to heat up as word about the rose leaks out. People and companies across the globe want to have this rose, some more unscrupulous than others.
Perfect reading while you sip lemonade in your favorite garden chair.
Eglin just released the second book in the series, The Lost Gardens
