Description
In Scent to Kill, the second novel in the Natural Remedies cozy series, Dr. Willow McQuade must solve the murder of a producer of a new psychic television show.
A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO SOLVING CRIME? AT THE NATURE'S WAY MARKET AND CAFE, A GENTLE TOUCH, A DOSE OF AROMATIC HERBS, FRESH EVIDENCE, AND INSPIRED INVESTIGATING ARE THE ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS TO CATCHING A KILLER
When naturopathic doctor and shop owner Willow McQuade's ex-boyfriend Simon Lewis invites her to a party for the cast and crew of a new television show at Long Island's scenic Bixby Estate, she's most excited to visit the property's exclusive lavender farm. But a whole field of her favorite stress-reducing herb can't provide enough soothing support to calm the effects of a murder
Even the show's psychic star didn't predict the demise of Roger Bixby, the estate's owner and estranged husband of Simon's new girlfriend. Now Simon, who's been collared by police, needs Willow's help to remedy the situation. As Willow snoops about the mansion, offering natural cures to ease the mounting tension, a strange energy--and the discovery of an eerily similar unsolved murder decades earlier--makes her wonder whether the alternative source of the crime might actually be . . . supernatural. Can she find harmony between mind, body, and possibly even spirits before somebody else goes up in smoke?
