Title: Dead in the Garden
Series: Grasmere Cottage Mystery Trilogy #1
Author: Dahlia Donovan
Publisher: Hot Tree Publishing
Genre: Sweet M/M Cosy Mystery
Release Date: October 6, 2018


Join bestselling Dahlia Donovan on a cosy mystery adventure in the Grasmere Cottage Mystery trilogy. With love, wit, and a murder to solve, life for Valor and Bishan is about to get bloody complicated.

Dead body in the garden? Check.

Mystery to solve? Check.

Police focused on the wrong person? Not good.

All grown up and graduated, Valor Tarquin Scott, son to Earl and Countess Scott, owns The Ginger’s Bread, a biscuit shop, in Grasmere in the Lake District. The love of his life, Bishan Tamboli, has turned his music studies into a successful career playing with the London Symphony Orchestra. It’s a perfect life with their cat, spending evenings watching Poirot on the television.

The nightmare begins with one dead former schoolmate, leading police to believe Bishan is responsible.

Valor struggles to solve the cryptic puzzles left behind in a race to prove Bishan’s innocence.

He can’t help wondering how far the body count will rise before they manage to stop the killer.

I just loved this book so much! A lot of romance mysteries are to much of one or the other. This one was able to balance everything so well. You have Valor the son of an earl who was disowned for his life choices. He is sarcastic and funny and so caring. Then you have his partner Bishan who has this loving family, he paints and plays music and is autistic. They both went to school together and are just a realistic amazing couple. They wake one day and find a dead body in their garden. And if that is not bad enough all the clues point to Bishan.
I really had a hard time figuring out who was behind everything. This is the first book in a trilogy, so you really don't find out who is behind it. I could not put this book down though and as soon as I was done I needed the next book.
The story is very well written and thought out. I love all the characters. There are very many in this book, but with out everyone of them the story would be lacking. I think the biggest thing for me was How Bishan was portrayed. I have a son with autism and I just loved that there was a character like him. Bishan is brave and strong, he has things he doesn't understand but is still this amazing person who really tries. How him and Valor are together just makes me so happy. I definitely laughed and cried along the way with the story.
