Penelope Summers often finds a body where she has hoped to find only beauty. She’s become a gardener, at least part time, and hopes that her obsession with toiling in the soil will eventually allow her to quit her public relations day-job on State Circle in Annapolis.
In her second mystery, Penny and her Landscape Design professor from Annapolis Community College are in North Carolina to visit the famed Brantleigh Manor Gardens. After George Vanderbilt’s Biltmore Estate in Asheville, Brantleigh Manor was the last residential commission for the famed architect of Central Park in New York, Frederick Law Olmsted.
She and her professor are staying with Penny’s Great Aunt Zelma in nearby Flat Rock while she attempts to solve the mystery of the body at Brantleigh Manor.
