Courtney Kelly has a shop full of delights, a cat named Pixie, a green thumb - and a magical touch when it comes to garden design. But in Carmel-by-the-Sea, things aren't all sweetness and fairy lights....  

When Courtney's friend Wanda gets into a ponytail-pulling wrestling match in public with a nasty local art critic, Courtney stops the fight with the help of a garden hose. But Lana Lamar has a talent for escalating things and creating tension, which she succeeds in doing by threatening a lawsuit, getting into yet another scuffle - in the midst of an elegant fundraiser, no less - and lobbing insults around like pickleballs.     

Next thing Courtney knows, Lana is on the floor, stabbed with a decorative letter opener from one of Courtney's fairy gardens, and Wanda is standing by asking, "What have I done?" But the answer may not be as obvious as it seems, since Wanda is prone to sleepwalking and appears to be in a daze. Could she have risen from her nap and committed murder while unconscious? Or is the guilty party someone else Lana's ticked off, like her long-suffering husband? To find out, Courtney will have to dig up some dirt....

Courtney's friend Wanda gets into a fight with local art critic Lana. A few days later, Lana is found dead with Wanda standing over her with her hand on the murder weapon. Courtney is determined to help the local police figure out what happened, whether they want her to or not.

I don't think I connected to this book as much as I did with the first one. I don't know if it was the book or if it was me. I really enjoy the fairy gardens and the fairy characters. I'm enjoying getting to know Courtney and all of her friends. I really like the dynamics in the book, I just wanted to connect with it more. I'm excited to see what's next!
