Synopsis: State bar attorney-investigator Nan Robinson, first introduced in A Pocketful of Karma, again has jumped headfirst into solving a tough California crime. Tangled Roots burrows beneath the fragrant beauty of the flower industry, emerging in a stunning dramatic conclusion that could only take place in Southern California.
From the Inside Flap:
IN CALIFORNIA'S FLOWER-GROWING COUNTRY, MURDER IS BLOOMING. . . .
Shane Pettigrew is dead. His oldest friend, Adam Chandler, is accused of killing him. Adam's only defense is his claim of innocence, and for his sister-in-law, L.A. attorney Nan Robinson, that's enough. Despite the fact that Nan's sister, Julie, admits to having an affair with Shane. And that Adam's gun is the murder weapon.
But if Adam didn't kill Shane, who did? Nan's race for the truth takes her deep into Southern California's lucrative floriculture business and Shane's rampantly promiscuous personal life. It stirs up the old feuds and sorrows of the Pettigrew family. And inexorably and fatefully it lures Nan into a trap whose only exit is death. . . .
"If reviewers gave roses, Taffy Cannon would receive dozens of the finest long-stemmed blossoms. Nan Robinson is wonderful company for mystery lovers."
"TANGLED ROOTS is likely to turn more readers into Nan Robinson (and Taffy Cannon) fans."
"Tense, entertaining, and satisfyingly thorough."
