Part-time garden shop owner/part-time forensic botanist, Peggy Lee is trying to discover if the death of Ann Fletcher 20 years ago was an accident – or foul play. In return, she hopes to receive more information about her first husband’s death. She knows John Lee was murdered, but questions have arisen as to why he was killed. She is working with a private detective who stumbles across his own feet, but her Internet friend, Nightflyer, says that Harry Fletcher has the answers. When Harry is murdered by convallatoxin, from the lily of the valley plant, Peggy begins to understand her role in everything. Now she has to stay alive long enough to prove her theories – and keep her son, Paul out of trouble too!

This NEW release continues the story of Peggy Lee, a botanist associated with the medical examiner when there is a possible poisoning.  She still doesn't have closure on her husband's murder despite her marriage to Steve, who was John's FBI partner.  Her efforts to hide her own investigation from Steve and from her son backfire when the person who is supposed to have some of the answers is poisoned.  Peggy continues to work on the case but it gets complicated and potentially dangerous for Peggy. Even when many questions are answered, there are still some questions.  LETHAL LILY was only released last week, and I am hoping Joyce and Jim write fast.
