HASH(0x936ec1d4) étoiles sur 5 A Wonderful Start To A New Series!! 4 mai 2011
Par Lori Caswell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Casey Calhoun is not your typical assistant gardener at the White House. She was brought in by the First Lady to make the gardening at the White House more organic, more earth friendly. Casey is also very organized, observant and detail oriented. While getting the grounds ready for the annual Easter Egg Roll she is also developing a plan to present to the Grounds Committee for implementing her new organic ideas.

Fighting back a case of the nerves about her presentation she ventures out to weed one of the park's gardens. While there she is attacked from behind and ends up face down in the garden. As she comes to and is explaining what happened to a Secret Service Agent, she notices some broken limbs on a tree. When she works her way over to the damage, it leads both her and the agent to make a shocking discovery. A dead woman that has been stuffed into a trash can. Casey can't help herself from digging into case and trying to root out the killer. Doing so she puts herself not only in danger from the assailant but also may lose her job before she even has a chance to bloom.

A wonderful start to a new series!! Casey Calhoun is a gutsy, full of life character, who is not afraid to get her hands dirty. Her character develops perfectly throughout this story. You couldn't have a more perfect setting and the plot is entertaining and fast paced. A friendship that may bloom into love is also planted that I cannot wait to see flower in future editions.

Flowerbed of State is the perfect Springtime read. It also includes information on how to keep our yards and gardens blooming in more earth friendly ways as Casey prepares her presentation and fights for at least gradual change. I can't wait for the next book in this series to see where Casey takes us.

I really wanted to like this book. I've read and loved Julie Hyzy's White House chef series and looked forward to another series set at the White House. Boy was I disappointed. Where Julie Hyzy's chef Olivia Paras is a strong and smart woman, gardener Casey is an immature, disorganized, scatterbrained, frivolous, silly little girl.

The plot revolves around Casey discovering a dead body and her determination on solving the crime. After all, she reads mysteries and is therefore more highly qualified than the police and the Secret Service. In her pursuit of justice, Casey predictably puts herself in harm's way and is saved by the requisite handsome Secret Service agent who, for whatever reason, is besotted with dimwitted Casey. Ugh.

Time reading Flowerbed of State was well spent. It's a light, well-written mystery with a heroine who is sympathetic and likeable. I will order the next book in the series.

My only problem with the mystery was that to me, it wasn't. I felt that the killer was too obvious from almost the beginning. Other than that, I enjoyed the book very much.

HASH(0x936c5a2c) étoiles sur 5 A Great Beginning To A New Series 17 mai 2011
Par F. Yoder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Flowerbed of State is the first in the A White House Gardener Mystery by Dorothy St. James. This is a wonderful first book and wouldn't be surprised if doesn't garner some Best First Novel awards. I though there might have been more behind the scenes" gardening at the White House, but that is only negative thing I have about this book.

Casey Calhoun was hired out of Charleston, SC to implement the First Lady's plan for an Organic Garden policy at The White House. On the day that she is going to present her plan to the First Lady and the White House Gounds Committee, she is doing some last minute weeding across the street and is attacked. A Secret Service agent comes to attempt to help her and she sprays pepper spray in his face as she thinks he is attacking her. Upon returning to the White House grounds Casey finds the body of a bank auditor from the Treasury Department in a trash can.

The question is: is this tied to the Banking Summit that is being held at the White House or with the group of protesters that are protesting the bankers meeting? Throw in a controversial Senator who is trying to pass new banking regulations and aslo seems hard pressed to have Casey lose her job as assistant gardener.

Of course the Secret Service is being tight lipped so Casey must try and find answers on her own to save one of her co-workers and of course her job.

An excellent story and a book that will be hard to put down.

HASH(0x936c25b8) étoiles sur 5 A Delightful Debut 19 mai 2011

What a great debut series. Casey is attacked and from that moment on is following leads she collects to find a killer. The closer Casey gets, the nervous she is making the killer who is intent on causing her and those near her harm. This cleverly-written, action-packed story is full of intrigue and suspense. I love the wonderful cast which includes Casey, Jack, Gordon, Alyssa and the ever-friendly Milo. With a great setting, engaging dialogue and a comfortable feeling, this delightful series will keep you bloom-fully entertained.
