The eagerly-awaited novels from the hit Channel 7 TV series starring Felicity Kendal and Pam Ferris. Meet Rosemary Boxer and Laura Thyme, two women who battled back from personal setbacks to make a fresh start in life by starting their own gardening business. However mystery is never far away and Rosemary & Laura's inquisitive nature never let them rest until they have found the solution... When Laura Thyme discovers that her husband has left her, she travels straight to the house of her best friends, Sam and Vickie Trent, for some much-needed sympathy. Meanwhile, Rosemary Boxer, who is having man-trouble of a different variety, is invited to visit Daniel Kellaway, an ex-student of hers, at his country estate. Winterbourne Manor is beautiful, with breathtaking gardens, but its owner Daniel is bedridden with a curious and debilitating illness, and has to rely on Sam Trent to keep their successful gardening centre business going. After a fatal car crash, followed by further puzzling "accidents", the women's noses for trouble start twitching. Armed with Rosemary's horticultural knowledge and Laura's former police background, the pair sense there's a mystery to be solved, and set off to find out the truth.
