Baker & Taylor
Accompanying her friend Lucy on an all-expense-paid trip to the Titans Hotel, gardener Paula Holliday is delighted to get the opportunity to write an article on the rare titan arum flower on display at the hotel, but her trip goes awry when Lucy is detained, the corpse flower refuses to bloom, and a would-be suitor turns up dead. 25,000 first printing.

“A smart, engaging heroine who isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty—literally.”
- Brian Freeman, author of Stalked

A hit with mystery lovers and gardening fans nationwide, Pushing Up Daisies introduced Paula Holliday, ex-NYC media exec turned Connecticut gardener, in Rosemary Harris’s celebrated series debut. Now in The Big Dirt Nap, Paula is back in a second scent-sational thriller.

Something stinks to Paula Holliday, and it isn’t just the corpse flower, titan arum, named for its off-putting fragrance. When Paula’s friend Lucy asks her to tag along on an all-expense-paid junket to the Titans Hotel, it seems like a good idea. Paula even manages to squeeze a few bucks and a byline out of the local paper for writing an article on the titan arum, a rare flower that’s just about to bloom and on display at the hotel.

But when her friend is unavoidably detained, a would-be suitor is found with a gaping hole in his head, and the corpse flower refuses to bloom, the entire venture starts to seem like less of a good idea.

Brimming with wit and wisecracks, The Big Dirt Nap is sure to win rising mystery star Rosemary Harris a whole new slew of ardent fans.
