Ergh. I wanted to read a cozy after finishing Stephen King's latest. Don't get me wrong, I loved the King, but it was very dark, like darker than usual for him, and quite depressing and hopeless. When I finish a book like that, I need the comfort of a cozy mystery. Some people use chick lit as an antidote, I use cozies as they are fun, and still have a dark under current. On top this a Christmas mystery, that I thought would add to the fun factor. Christmas was simply the background to the story and didn't really have much to do with it.
Well unfortunately, this one disappointed. The writing was wooden; heh, coming from a person who writes about botany and gardening, maybe that was to be expected, and the story and characters, just not that interesting.
The reason I gave it two stars rather than one, was for the very interesting essay at the end of the novel about xeriscaping and native plants which is part of the theme of the actual story. If only the author had written as passionately and clearly in her novel as she did her essay, it would have been a winner.
