"Murder in the Arboretum by Christa Nardi is a cozy mystery. The violence is subdued and never graphic. You can sit back and relax as Sheridan goes about her work. Clues slowly accumulate like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Fitting them together to form a coherent picture requires judgement and good luck. Vital pieces of information are missing. Fortunately, Sheridan has a nose for sniffing them out."
