Synopsis:

PHYSICIAN, HEAL THYSELF?
Murder is unearthed when an outspoken surgeon turns up dead in Willow McQuade’s medicinal herb garden.
When a local doctor is found dead in Willow McQuade’s medicinal garden, she must find the killer to clear her boyfriend’s name in this third clever book in the Natural Remedies Mystery series.
Dr. Willow McQuade, owner of Nature’s Way Market & Café, has put the finishing touches on a new medicinal plant garden for Greenport’s annual Maritime Festival and is ready for the festivities to begin. But it’s not all flowers and sunshine at the grand opening, when Willow discovers the body of another contestant, Dr. Charles White, face down in her garden.
Willow’s hunky boyfriend, Jackson Spade, immediately becomes a suspect due to a recent fight with Dr. White. Willow knows she has to remedy the situation, but it won’t be easy with the other applicants’ vendettas and vandals wrecking her garden at every turn. And when she finds buried treasure in her garden that just might belong to the legendary Captain Kidd, the stakes become even higher. Was Dr. White searching for that treasure? Did someone kill him to get to it first? With the help of Jackson and her eccentric ex-boyfriend, Willow follows the clues to uncover the truth that someone wants buried…
But can she dig up enough evidence before she becomes the killer’s next victim?


About This Author
I love natural remedies and I’ve been using them for as long as I can remember. When I was growing up, my mother practiced natural cures such as tea bag baths for sunburn, homeopathic remedies for colds and allergies, arnica oil for sprains and bruises and, of course, chicken soup with garlic was always a staple.
My interest in natural remedies continued after I graduated from Boston University with a degree in communications and subsequently dabbled in various vocations including advertising and television production in Hollywood. In 1998 I moved back to my hometown, Greenport, NY and set up my own writing business. I’d always wanted to be my own boss and write full-time.
My focus was, and is, health, and in particular alternative medicine which includes natural remedies. As a freelance journalist, I’ve written about natural cures for Natural Health, Mother Earth Living, Spirituality & Health, and Vegetarian Times, as for over five years I was the Good Nature columnist for Remedy magazine.

My review: Garden of Death by Chrystle Fiedler
 
4 stars
 
This is exciting mystery.  Murder, pirate treasure and romance.  Lots of suspects,  don't know who to trust. It is a clean read. Makes me want to go and visit the festival and see Nature's Way Market & Café.

Willow McQuade has got her medicinal garden ready to open.   Nature’s Way Market & Café is owned by Willow. Her boyfriend is Jackson Spade.

The lot that she put her garden in was next door to her business.  For some reason she won the right to own the land.  Which made her a lot of enemies that wanted that property but lost the bid.

When checking the garden for the first tour she finds a dead body in the garden. Dr. Charles White.  He accused her the night before of cheating to get the property.  Willow's boyfriend becomes the main suspect.

Willow has solved other cases of murder this past year.  Her ex-boyfriend Simon and others want her to solve this one.  The detectives don't like her and her friends.

People are trying to shut her Garden down and calling it a Garden of Death.  Really bitter and angry results it causes.

Someone is looking for things in the garden at night.  They even find some treasure in the garden but the cops don't listen to her.

In front of each chapter is a medical herb that she likes and tells what it has been used for in the past. It is interesting and a good start to find out about the plants.

I like Willow and her friends.  I want to read the first two books of the series now.

I was given Garden of Death to read so that I could give a honest review and be part of Garden of Death book tour.
