Now, the hunt is on for a clever killer with a deadly knowledge of poisons. Luckily, Poppy can count on her "mad scientist" neighbour Bertie to help her sort the cyanides from the cycads, and she soon finds that her sleepy English village is crawling with suspects. There are hostile colleagues with scores to settle and jilted ex-girlfriends with points to prove... but was the murder connected to the victim's job? Or was the motive more personal?
Meanwhile, Poppy is grappling with problems at the cottage garden too, from mysterious pests attacking her roses to disgruntled customers leaving in droves—not to mention a runaway slug leading her on a merry chase! Then there's Oren, the cheeky ginger tomcat, poking his paws where they don't belong. But when a threatening note arrives, Poppy realises that cats aren't the only ones killed by curiosity. Can she solve the mystery and live to prune another day?
