Garden Mystery Book & Garden Glove Give Away!

Category: Presenting "The Curious Gardener"

Garden Mystery Give Away

We have two paperback copies of Rosemary Harris’ Pushing Up Daisies to give away, along with a pair of Womanswork nitrile weeding gloves. Pushing Up Daisies is Rosemary’s first novel, and it won her the “Anthony and Agatha” nomination for best first novel. This week she launches her third book, Dead Head, published by St. Martin’s Minotaur imprint. I read it this weekend and it is as much fun as the first two were. Her books fit into the category of cozy mysteries. I found this definition at “Cozies are the kind of stories one might read while curled up on the couch with a cup of tea.”  There’s no gore or gratuitous violence.

The main character in Rosemary Harris’ “Dirty Business” series is Paula Holliday, a cheeky 40-something woman, newly single and launching a landscaping business in a small town in Connecticut after being downsized from her big city career in video production. It turns out she has a knack for getting to the bottom of things, and finds herself at the center of a whodunnit in every plotline. Her landscaping business figures in her stories, which makes it a bonus for gardeners to read.

Rosemary Harris' Third Garden Mystery
I met Rosemary Harris for coffee at The Lakeside Diner (aka Paradise Diner). Read her books to find out the significance of that! I was impressed by the fact that she wears two hats. She is not only a writer, which is impressive enough, but she is a businesswoman. These days, you have to be willing and able to think like a marketing person because most publishers have limited resources for that. I commented that her lead character reminds me of  a Womanswork woman. She’s independent minded, a hard worker and likes to garden. That’s why we decided to cross promote Rosemary’s books with Womanswork gloves. We hope to work with the publisher in the future to do more.
Write a comment and we will do a random drawing for the books and gloves around this time next week. Let us know your glove size (size chart is here)

  1. Reading either of those mysteries would be a perfect way to relax after a day of gardening. I can picture it now: sitting on the deck under the awning in a comfy lounge chair with a glass of minty iced tea and some lemon cookies! (My glove size is Large.)

  2. Thank you Heather! I agree that it would be a nice relaxing way to spend the day, after gardening.

  3. Count me in! I wear a medium.
