Format: Mass Market Paperback
Alice, the amateur sleuth, spends most of her time in the book struggling to prove to everyone that her friend Barbara did not commit suicide, but was instead murdered. The plot was clever, but I found myself not very interested in most of the other characters. Barbara's husband Tim was a pretty intriguing guy, but some of the secrets that came out about him didn't get very far in the story. I'm also a little puzzled as to why most of the characters, whom all had very different personalities and backgrounds, all had the same reaction to Alice's declaration that Barbara was murdered. Hmmm. I'll probably try to read a few other books in the series to see if perhaps I just happened to pick up one of Adamson's weaker ones.

HASH(0xa358cb70) out of 5 stars Catnip in the Garden April 23 2009
By kntshovary-TX - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I found this book at one of my favorite thrift stores and picked it up because of the herb theme in it. Even though it was an easy read, it didn't really seem to be fleshed out enough for me. The secrets that came out weren't developed and left me wondering what was behind it all. The reactions of the characters all seemed to be the same but why? Okay, so part of the story was about dealing with grief of the death of a good friend, but it just didn't seem to flow. The herb (catnip) wasn't talked about much except for a short conversation Alice had with a store owner. There was no discussion of why this was the herb that was picked as their main crop in the garden. What made this herb 'the one'? As another reviewer said this might just be one of those 'off' books. I'll look for more of her books to see if her other books have a different feel.
HASH(0xa399adbc) out of 5 stars I bought this series because I thought it was one ... Oct. 23 2014
By T Toms - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this series because I thought it was one thing. It wasn't what I thought. The stories are kinda out there. The main character seems to be an undersexed cat sitter, part time detective, underemployed older stage actress. This is an older series that turns out is written by a man. If I hadn't already bought the series before I read the first book, I don't think I would have spent the money. The shipping fees were sometimes more than the books themselves. Read one or two, then decide for yourself.

I was in a hurry for this book, as it was the next-in-line for a series I'm reading and it was not available at my local library. I was glad that it arrived quickly and in good condition. It was also well-packaged.
