    "Mulch ado about nothing"

    I bought this book when I was bored and looking for something a bit different and I wish I hadn't bothered. For those looking for a traditional crime thriller, the book reads more like chick lit. The first murder doesn't happen until chapter 8 and the supposed 'detective' of the book, the wife, doesn't really do any detecting. Indeed the murder announces themself to her without her even suspecting them in any serious way. It passed a couple of hours but for those looking for big body counts and serious detecting they should give this a miss.

    "It's just so much compost"

    I did not like this one. It was very slow and drawn out. You know that a book has lost your interest when you haven’t a clue who the characters are much less care. At the end, the murderer was revealed and I still don’t remember him/her. The reader doses not help the situation. There is no suspense in her voice. She might be good reading a romance novel but is atrocious with a mystery. Who knows, you may like this one. But, as for me, it was just so much compost.

    "Average"

    I was interested in the gardening aspect of the story but over all I did not think this was a strong mystery. Washington DC social settings and White House intrigue impact a family that has moved to the area for the CIA spy husband's new assignment. I found it interesting enough to listen to the end and I will try one more in the series. The performance was ok. I could hear paper pages turning in some parts.

    What did you love best about Mulch?

    I found this a really fun book - humorous, quirky, honest, great characters and lovely little snippets of garden lore. Quite delicious.
