She killed him, she killed him not...
When interior decorator Madison Night finally meets the family of boyfriend and police captain Tex Allen, the circumstances are less than joyful. His sister's broody botanist husband left Lily to raise their four rambunctious boys on her own, and she's at wit's end. The only bright spot is the mid-century ranch he gave her in their divorce settlement.
The soon-to-be-ex has one request: a face to face with Lily before he says goodbye. Madison offers to go along for moral support, but in lieu of signed settlement papers, she finds the ex's body crumpled in the corner of the arboretum where he works. When swarm of angry bees sideline Tex, it's Madison's job to dig up the secrets that led to the murder — but if she's not careful, the dirt she uncovers could fill her grave instead.
Can Madison weed through the daisy chain of clues or will she risk pushing up daisies herself?
PLEASE DON'T PUSH UP THE DAISIES
PLEASE DON'T PUSH UP THE DAISIES is the eleventh book of the Mad for Mod Mystery series written by Diane Vallere. A solid, well-written, well-plotted, well-paced mystery with an interesting cast of new and familiar characters, as well as a lot of danger, excitement and fun. There are plenty of clues but you’ll still be guessing right until the end and you’ll enjoy seeing yet another side of our Madison. Loved the book, loved the series, recommend this and everything else this author writes without hesitation. I received an advanced reader copy from the author and am voluntarily leaving a review.
BEST OF THE SERIES!
Author Diane Vallere writes the delightful Madison Night Mystery Series and, in my opinion, her latest release, Please Don’t Push Up the Daisies, is the best of the series! Vallere’s reoccurring characters are quirky, fun, likable, and excellent at their chosen careers. The new characters in this book make it entertaining and keep you wondering if they are part of the problem or the solution. This plot is filled with mischief, havoc, and murder. This whodunit will keep you guessing until the end! Vallere makes this one a wild ride from start to finish!
Clever and Absolutely Delightful
This clever and absolutely delightful mystery is beautifully crafted by one of my favorite contemporary authors. Madison finally meets Tex’s family when his sister & nephews hit town. Murder is not far behind when Madison finds the body of the sister’s estranged husband. This book has it all! Plenty of suspense and plot twists, nicely developed characters, and great writing, all topped off with a big dollop of mid-century modern design. I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next in the series. I received a complimentary copy of this book and chose to write a voluntary, unbiased review.
