This is book number 4 in the Greenhouse Mystery series.
It's summertime in Winsome. Washington Acres is abloom, Megan is preparing for the grand opening of their wood-fired pizza farm, and things with Megan's beau, handsome Dr. Finn, are getting as hot as the August temperatures.
But when Megan's ne'er-do-well father arrives in Pennsylvania with his high-maintenance Italian wife, Sylvia, and announces they're staying at the new yoga retreat center a town away, a sweet occasion sours.
Eager to secure pieces for her Milan boutique, Sylvia finagles a meeting with up-and-coming artist Thana Moore, whose work is showing at the retreat center. After their explosive encounter, Thana is murdered and Sylvia becomes the prime suspect.
Only Sylvia isn't the only one with ties to the artist--once upon a time, Thana Moore had been Megan's best friend.
As Megan delves into Thana's past, piecing together the years since their falling out, she realizes that something sinister is afoot in Bucks County. Unless Megan can find the killer, this idyllic summer will turn nightmarish. Innocent people may be imprisoned--and even more could die.
