If you enjoyed the books about the White House chef by another author. This one is just as good. You will be thoroughly entertained by the characters as well as the setting.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 How does Casey's garden grow? 4 avril 2012
Par F. Yoder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
The Scarlett Pepper is the second book in The White House Gardener Mystery series. And a very enjoyable addition it is.

The time is getting close to the day that the First Lady will be harvesting from the Kitchen Garden, with the press in attendance. Casey Calhoun, along with the White House Garden volunteers are busily doing last minute work in the garden. One of the volunteers, who is also the wife of the Press Secretary for the President is very concerned about an article that is being written Griffon Parker. Casey then has a heated discussion with Parker, in front of witnesses and that evening Parker is found dead. Then out of the blue a Scotsman who has an organic gardening show is brought on board without consulting Casey, bringing further doubt to her organic methods.

There are also mysterious happenings taking place in the garden, too. Signs of digging going on which of course the First Dog is being blamed for, but then red peppers are growing where green ones should be.

Casey has to be careful, as she is not sure she can trust some of those people she has in the past, including Jack a Secret Service member assigned to the White House. But Casey and Jack soon start to trust each other more and begin to work together to solve the mysterious events taking place on the White House grounds.

I enjoy reading mysteries that take in and around at the White House, as I can only imagine that things are much more difficult than is portrayed in the books. Which is very understandable for security reasons.

Looking forward to reading the next book to she how Casey and Jack handle becoming "better friends", if Casey can begin to get closure on her parents deaths when she was a child and of course being a dog lover, looking forward to more tidbits on the First Dog.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Send for an editor, quickly! 14 juin 2012
Par Ms. Fiona Allen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Oh dear, Ms St James has got hold of some Scottish expressions but hasn't quite figured out how to use them. "Och, dinna mean to stomp on your toes, lass" is a sentence that would never, and I do mean never, come from a Scottish mouth. And there are other equally incongruous applications of faux dialect. Still, it's a decent enough read, although some of the minor characters are a bit sketchy, the subplot about the missing parent turns out to have a most surprising twist, and the bomb plot is a bit telegraphed.
I'd take "The Scarlet Pepper" on a plane journey or read it at the beach, but I don't plan to treasure it for any length of time.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Harvest of Crime 1 juillet 2012
Par L. Rigod - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Casey Calhoun, Asst. Gardener and official organic gardener is excited for the up-coming harvest of the First Lady's Kitchen Garden. The Harvest is going to be done with volunteers and school children eating the first harvest under the guidance of the White House Chef's.

A cloud emerges over the festivity when not only is someone destroying the garden, but also, is killing off newspaper reporters that have issues with Casey's project.

Soon, it becomes clear that Casey may also be in the killer's sights. Reputations are placed at risk as well as lives and the Secret Service with DCPD must try and solve this crime wave before the harvest happens.

The reader is kept busy with puzzles, hints, murders, hidden identities, and even bombs from page one until the satisfying ending.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Convoluted plot 18 juin 2012
Par Betty L. Detwiler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat authentifié par Amazon
This review is entitled "convoluted plot" as that's what this second book in the series contained. I couldn't figure out whether the plot was the budget crisis, the organic garden or one press member trying to find her father. There were too many characters to keep straight and toward the end as I was reading, I noticed a time jump within one paragraph. Too many repetitions about Casey's past life, what Jack is wearing every time she sees him, and the process that went into making the organic garden made the book even bigger than it could have been. I literally plowed my way through the book because the plot dragged and the writing jumped from one subplot to another without much warning for example, what happened with the murder mystery charity dinner that was being planned but never materialized.

Casey herself comes off as a self centered know it all and doesn't know when to keep her mouth shut. She makes accusations for no reason whatsoever and I think, deliberately places herself in danger just to get noticed.

I also wondered who really was in charge of the gardening crew as Gordon seems like a minor character even though he is the head gardener. I will not be purchasing any more books in this series as the first two are now on their way to a garage sale.

If anyone wants to read a thrilling series about mysteries in the White House, try the White House Chef mysteries. These are great!
