Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“First introduced in 2013’s Multiple Exposure, Sophie is a tough, relatable heroine, and with her unconventional job—not to mention her ex-spy husband—this makes for a breezy read with just the right amount of thrills.” Library Journal
“Early in Crosby’s intriguing second Sophie Medina mystery, the Washington, DC, photojournalist learns from her friend Brother Kevin Boyle, a Franciscan friar and environmental scientist, that he’s on to something big related to a conference he recently attended at London’s Kew Gardens…Compelling.” Publishers Weekly
“In this second Sophie Medina mystery, the plucky protagonist travels between her native Washington, DC, and London, where she lived for years…A solid, scenic mystery by the author of the Virginia Wine Country series.” Booklist
“A photojournalist searches for clues to a suspicious death…The second in Crosby’s new series is a quick-moving mystery with a wealth of fascinating material on gardening in Colonial times and the value of plants in sustaining life on Earth.” Kirkus Reviews
