Praise for the Gardening Mysteries of Ann Ripley:

Death of a Garden Pest:

"A hybrid of a traditional whodunit and an up-to-the-minute gardening guide."
–The Denver Post

"Gardening and murder make a fascinating combination in Death of a Garden Pest.  Gardener-sleuth Louise Eldridge offers an enchanting view of gardens while facing down dauntingly evil opponents."
–Carolyn G.  Hart

"Another mystery featuring that delightful gardener Louise Eldridge and her resourceful band of family sleuths.  Death of a Garden Pest is as tangled and full of surprises as the best nativist garden."
–Margaret Coel


"Ann Ripley plants clues in unexpected places, develops a plot with interesting dirt, and seeds her story with colorful characters, including a captivating noxious villain.  Mulch is not your garden-variety mystery."
–Diane Mott Davidson

"Mulch is one of those little gems."
–Mystery Lovers Bookshop News

"Louise is a smart, appealing heroine."
–Kirkus Reviews
