Seeds of Revenge
A Greenhous
e Mystery Book Three
by Wendy Tyson
In A Muddied Murder, Wendy Tyson introduced readers to Megan Sawyer, a woman who gives up her Chicago law career to care for her grandmother and run Washington Acres, the family’s organic farm and its cozy store and restaurant, Washington Acres Café and Larder. But Megan’s move to Winsome, a small town in Pennsylvania’s quaint Bucks County, hasn’t been so smooth. In Tyson’s first Greenhouse Mystery, a zoning commissioner is found dead in her barn and M
egan is considered the chief suspect; and in the second edition, Bitter Harvest, the town’s pub owner is killed after he accuses another brewer of rigging the sponsorship lottery for Winsome’s first  Oktoberfest. Megan follows her intuition and uses her knowledge of the law to solve both murder cases—even when they put her life in danger and exasperate the local police chief, Bobby King.
Megan returns f
or the holiday season in SEEDS OF REVENGE: A Greenhouse Mystery Book Three (Henery Press; November 14th, 2017; ISBN 9781635112757; Trade Paperback). A heavy snowstorm hits while Megan is on the road, and on her way to Winsome she picks up a woman who stranded her car from the weather. The stranger turns out to be Becca Fox, a chemist and the niece of nosy local nursery owner Merry Chance. Merry has invited Becca to stay with her so she can sell her “love potions” at holiday events. But Merry has an ulterior mo
tive in inviting Becca to Winsome—to reunite her with her estranged psychologist father Paul Fox, whom Becca despises because she believes he murdered her mother. When Paul turns up dead in a house he is renting, all signs point to Becca as his killer when she begins to display erratic behavior…and it turns out that Paul may have been poisoned by a gaseous mixture that only a person with a chemistry background would know how to create.
Megan has a soft spot for Becca and doesn’t want to see her incarcerated by Chief King. Her suspicions grow when she starts digging around Paul Fox’s past and finds it too clean. But she also soon discovers that Becca isn’t the only person in Winsome who despised Paul—Megan’s aunt Sara
h, a famous mystery author, has a shadowy past with him. Megan’s love interest Denver, a sexy Scottish country veterinarian reminiscent of a James Herriot novel, also has an aunt who once worked with Paul but refuses to discuss him.
The plot of SEEDS OF REVENGE takes a twist when it appears that the way Paul was killed is exactly the same as a murder in one of Aunt Sarah’s mystery novels…and soon other events take place that imply that this killer may be her biggest fan.
Megan enlists the help of Winsome’s quirky and loveable residents to solve the case: her spunky grandma Bibi; the kind and loving Denver, who is hinting to Megan that he wants a more committed relationship; Emily, a family friend whose rental Paul’s body was discovered in; overworked poli
ce chief Bobby King and his on-and-off girlfriend, Clover; and Alvaro, Washington Acres Café’s grumpy but spectacular chef.
In SEEDS OF REVENGE, Megan must rely on her environmental law background, her deductive reasoning skills, and her instincts to follow the literary clues of Aunt Sarah’s novels to solve the murder of Paul Fox—but can she uncover the truth before someone else is murdered?
