When Fiona Robins inherits her grandmother’s home in rural Oregon, she’s grateful for the chance to start fresh. The sleepy town of Lilac Springs, Oregon is picturesque and full of welcoming neighbors—a bubbly florist, a helpful park ranger, and a reclusive lumberjane. It almost seems too good to be true. Which it is. Because one of Fiona’s new neighbors definitely killed her grandma. Ingratiating herself to the townsfolk while mastering the art of gardening is a lot to juggle, and Fiona will have to shake a lot of hands and dig a lot of holes to solve this crime. But some secrets want to stay buried.
