Till Dirt Do Us Part by Teresa Trent
Cozy Mystery
Pecan Bayou #7
Approximately 219 pages

Not everything stays buried. When Betsy, a notorious brown thumb gets roped into a gardening contest sponsored by the Pecan Bayou Gazette, she finds herself digging up more than weeds. She is ridiculed by the garden club ladies, and now her heart breaks for a newly single mom whose world has just collapsed. 

The Happy Hinter is back so take some time to revisit the cozy little town Pecan Bayou, Texas. Grab a glass of sweet tea before you turn the dirt in the garden and sit a spell with all your favorite characters who dole out heartfelt caring and compassion with a side of humor. 

Till Dirt Do Us Part includes bonus recipes and helpful hints from Betsy’s column!

Are you a fan of the old tv show In The Heat Of The Night? I get the same feel about Pecan Bayou, TX that I had about Sparta, Mississippi. Quirky characters of ALL ages, and strong family ties. Of course gossip rules the day. Nothing better to fuel interesting gossip than a lively (or deadly) competition.
The gardening competition is truly killer and the puns thrown into this book made me laugh out loud.

The strength of family as well as community bonds are tested. When Betsy's father gets a new, ambitious partner who is helping investigate a body found in a dirt delivery, previous free passes become void. As referenced above, there was an episode of ITHOTN where a certain suspect had more than one wife. Any assumptions you, as an outsider, may have about the situation can never show the whole picture. Often we look for who has the most to gain from a situation. What if we look at what others have to lose? Perspective makes all the difference.

A wonderful cozy read with lots more going on than just a murder investigation.

Teresa Trent lives in Houston, Texas and is an award-winning mystery writer.  She writes the Pecan Bayou Mystery Series, is a regular contributor to the Happy Homicides Anthologies. Teresa is happy to add her Henry Park Mystery Series to her publishing credits with Color Me Dead, the first book in the series.

Her favorite things include spending time with family and friends, waiting for brownies to come out of the oven, and of course, a good mystery.
