Two communities. One flower competition. So much dead-heading! Aldermaston’s having a bad day. A falling hanging-basket has killed the town’s mayor, and someone is sending him death threats. This isn’t the quiet life he expected as the new Marquess of Mortiforde. It’s the annual Borders in Blossom competition, and Mortiforde is battling with Portley Ridge in the final. But this is no parochial flower competition. The mayor’s mishap looks like murder, and there’s another body in the river. Someone wants Portley Ridge to win for the 15th successive year. So when a guerrilla gardener group carpet bomb Mortiforde with a series of stunning floral delights one night, a chain reaction of floral retaliation ensues. Can Aldermaston survive long enough to uncover who is trying to kill him, and why? And can he get his wife’s greenhouse built in time?
