The Black Thumb – In Which Molly Takes On Tropical Gardening, A Toxic Frenemy, A Rocky Engagement, Her Albanian Heritage, and Murder
When a violent death disrupts the monthly meeting of the Pua Kala Garden Society, Professor Molly Barda has no intention of playing amateur detective. But Molly's not just a witness. The victim is Molly's house guest and grad-school frenemy. And Molly quickly finds to her dismay that her interest in the murder of the stylish and self-centered Melanie Polewski is more than just...academic.
The Black Thumb is for mystery lovers, Hawaii expatriates, frustrated gardeners, and disillusioned academics.
