Time to weed out a killer!Meg Langslow’s eccentric parents have a new hobby: growing roses and entering them in highly competitive shows. Dad’s gardening skill and Mother’s gift for selecting and arranging the blossoms should make them an unbeatable team—and Meg is relieved they’ve taken up such a safe, gentle hobby. She even volunteers to help when the Caerphilly Garden Club sponsors its first annual rose show. But after a few hours of dealing with her parents’ competitors, Meg sees trouble... “As usual in this hilarious series…a good time is guaranteed for everyone except Meg.”—Kirkus Reviews  Rose growers are so cut-throat that they will do nearly anything to win the Black Swan trophy—making them all prime suspects when Meg discovers that someone is attempting to kill the wealthy woman on whose estate the competition is being held. Meg tries to leave the detecting to the local police and focus on the competition. But she just can’t help getting her hands dirty when lives are at stake… “Andrews always leavens the mayhem with laughs.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch

There were a few comedic high points that had me laughing, mainly Meg's interactions with the animals. However, it lacked a certain level of zaniness I was expecting. Family involvement felt limited and maybe that was the problem. Still a good read and I'm definitely continuing with the next book...
