Title: Final Arrangements
Author: DonnaHuston Murray
Review: A story of murder at a Philadelphia flower show. The amateur sleuth is Ginger Barnes. The story moves at a slow but sure pace as the murder is solved. I will admit that I was taken by surprise at who the actual murderer was in the end. Some of the clues were there but I do not think they were all presented. This book is part of a series called Main Line Mysteries.
I would rate it at 3 stars. Enjoyable but not memorable.
I picked this book up at kindlebuffet.com because the synopsis peaked my interest.
Thanks Frank for this review.

Synopsis: Gin Barnes never expected to become a detective, but when the Main Line horticulturist she escorts to the Philadelphia Flower Show is strangled, she finds herself seeking a vicious killer among the world's most famous green thumbs.
Author Information: Donna Huston Murray has been writing since she was ten, but just let one of her books achieve #1 on Amazon’s Top 100 in addition to #1 for Female Sleuths and now she refuses to stop. Her seven Ginger Barnes Main Line Mysteries (originally with St. Martin’s Press) feature a woman much like herself, a headmaster’s wife transplanted to an upscale neighborhood by her husband’s job.
Donna also created Lauren Beck, a young cancer survivor and former cop, whose debut, CURED…BUT NOT OUT OF DANGER, was described as, “a real gem of a novel” by a judge for the Writer’s Digest 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards, and ranked among her top picks.
