Comments The Christmas Garden Affair

  • Helen

    From medieval anchoresses to modern American gardeners. Well, a piece of seasonal not quite fluff should be fine.Louise Eldridge, the host of a PBS show Gardening With Nature is invited to a party and conference put on by the American President-elect's wife who is hoping to set up some sort of "encourage the use of native plants in people's garden" thing. Since it is put on hold by the end of the book I'm not really sure what Maud Anderson was supposed to have had in mind specifically, but it pr [...]

    A standard mystery that probably goes a bit far describing the garden business. Certainly overblowing it's importance. Though it needs to balance the book.The writing is fine. Wish there were more descriptions of the setting of scenes. Also, though the characters were well defined, somehow I was getting confused as to who was who. It could be that my not being a fan of landscaping had me a bit detached.I read this because there is an indication by the title and the cover that Christmas was someh [...]

    The Christmas Garden Affair by Anne Rigley Love the holiday and gardening and thought this would be a good read.Louise and 47 others have been invited to visit with the first lady at the annual Christmas Garden Party. Bonnie Banfield was also invited-a rival that is trying to take over her PBS show from her.Bonnie talks to her audience in a sexual demeanor and dresses with very few clothes on and that is causing her ratings to go sky high. Louise is losing her ratingsThere are many others who al [...]

    Ergh. I wanted to read a cozy after finishing Stephen King's latest. Don't get me wrong, I loved the King, but it was very dark, like darker than usual for him, and quite depressing and hopeless. When I finish a book like that, I need the comfort of a cozy mystery. Some people use chick lit as an antidote, I use cozies as they are fun, and still have a dark under current. On top this a Christmas mystery, that I thought would add to the fun factor. Christmas was simply the background to the story [...]

    This is the third book I've tried to read by this author. I finished this one, but barely. I find it tedious and annoying when a writer changes point of view with every chapter and in some cases even within the chapter. It's very hard to care about the main character when the story is all over the place and there are ten or more characters to follow.Plus, the story was very predictable. So, for me this was not a good read.

    I really liked this book alot! I love to garden so this mystery was right up my alley! It is mainly set in Alexandria, VA where there is going to be a major gardening convention and dinner planned by the first lady elect. Everything is going along fine until someone ends up dead! Read the rest to find out how it ends. I would definitely recommend this book.


  • Pat

    Good quick read of a mystery. Enjoy the series.


  • Laura

    not bad, plot drags.


  • Sarah "Kat"

    Read half and was done. A bit predictable and didn't care for the plot. Read the last pages to see who did it.


  • Maryellen

    Not much of a Christmas theme here but the gathering of garden elite made for an enjoyable mystery.


  • Candida

    This was a nice mystery but there were so many characters it was hard to keep track of. It was also a little easy to predict.


  • Shawna

    I normally don't read a lot of murder mysteries, but I found this book interesting. The "who done it" was truly kept until the last chapter. It was fun to read
