Publisher Comments:

The New York Times bestselling Novel Idea Mysteries make their return with Lila Wilkins, literary agent and and#147;murder magnet,and#8221; planning a book signing garden party. But things arenand#8217;t coming up roses when she has to weed out a dangerous killerand#133;

The owner of the Novel Idea Literary Agency is thrilled when former local boy and popular television show host Damian York returns to Inspiration Valley, North Carolina, to launch his new gardening book. But Lila is less than excited about the hubbub when she sees her mounting to-do list. Between planning Yorkand#8217;s gala and sprucing up her yard for another event, sheand#8217;s spread too thinand#151;especially after she finds a skull buried in her flowerbeds.

As Lilaand#8217;s macabre discovery leads to other secrets hidden in Inspiration Valleyand#8217;s past, a member of the local garden club is found slumped over her prize rosesand#151;murdered. Now itand#8217;s up to Lila to dig through old mysteries and new clues to unearth a murderer before someone else is found pushing up daisiesand#133;

Synopsis:

The national bestselling Novel Idea Mysteries return with Lila Wilkins, who has just been promoted to full-time literary agent. But great new writers aren’t the only people she’s trying to catch…

Lila Wilkins has it all: the home of her dreams in the charming town of Inspiration Valley, North Carolina; a perfect police officer boyfriend; and a new job she absolutely loves. At the Book and Author Festival, which is sponsored by the Novel Idea Literary Agency, Lila expects to discover some talented new authors, but what she finds instead is the body of an editor to whom she bears an eerie resemblance.

 

Trouble is, the editor’s death isn’t the only literary murder taking place. Soon a blossoming author is also killed, and Lila has a gut feeling that the two murders are linked. Now she must hunt down the dark figure who killed these women—and to her surprise, she just might find the clues hidden in a manuscript…

Synopsis:

After losing her job as a journalist at the age of forty-five, Lila Wilkins accepts an internship at A Novel Idea, a thriving literary agency in North Carolina. Being paid to read seems perfect to Lila, although it's difficult with the cast of quirky co-workers and piles of query letters. But when a penniless aspiring author drops dead in the agency's waiting room-and Lila discovers a series of threatening letters-she's determined to find out who wrote him off.

About the Author

Lucy Arlington is an avid reader, cook, and gardener. If she had her way, she'd divide her time between preparing delectables in her kitchen, traveling the globe on her scooter, and sitting in a comfortable chair with a cup of coffee and a paperback until her legs cramped. Lucy is devoted to her husband and children - especially when they ply her with chocolate and gift cards to bookstores.

Full-time literary agent Lila Wilkins in Inspiration Valley, North Carolina, is looking forward to The Book and Author Festival, sponsored by her employer the Novel Idea Literary Agency. What could possibly go wrong? Well, a dead body or two can really spoil the festivities. Not only dead bodies to deflate the Festival, but Lila has some more personal problems. I love this series. I found and tried the recipe for Althea's (Lila's psychic mom) banana bread and loved it. I'm looking forward to the nest book.
