"Terrific … compelling … an intoxicating blend of mystery, history and romance, this book is hard to put down." --Real Simple
On the eve of the Second World War, the last surviving specimen of a camellia plant known as the Middlebury Pink lies secreted away on an English country estate. Flora, an amateur American botanist, is contracted by an international ring of flower thieves to infiltrate the household and acquire the coveted bloom. Her search is at once brightened by new love and threatened by her discovery of a series of ghastly crimes.
More than half a century later, garden designer Addison takes up residence at the manor, now owned by the family of her husband, Rex. The couple’s shared passion for mysteries is fueled by the enchanting camellia orchard and an old gardener’s notebook. Yet its pages hint at dark acts ingeniously concealed. If the danger that Flora once faced remains very much alive, will Addison share her fate?
Fans of Downton Abbey should rush to pick up this novel.

Who would ever have thought that floral theft was such a big thing! Although it does figure that anything rate is valuable. I really loved this book, the ups and downs and the twists and turns. I've grown to love all Sarah Jio's books and can't wait for the next one. Some of the parts of this story seemed so realistic to me that it just hurt to read those parts. Great ending as well.
Loved this story!
This book will keep you up late at night reading to find out what happens. It kept me on the edge of my seat and constantly had me guessing! I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves mystery novels.
