    1. I have to say I am torn between two or three stars. The thing I dislike is knowing who the killer is and the storyline going back-and-forth from killer to heroine just lost interest. I love the Gardening aspect of the book but to be honest it's hard to write a review when I got lost as some points and the storyline just did not catch me. I found myself rereading some pages. Louise is a likable character but idk maybe reading it on kindle is different than a hard copy.


    2. #1 in the Louise Eldridge series. Very good series debut with an appealing main character and organic gardening as the series hook. This first entry does an excellent job of using the organic gardening in a logical way to uncover the crime.Louise Eldridge is settling her family into their new northern Virginia home, in the neighborhood where Peter Hoffman, a candidate for undersecretary of defense, lives. Louise, an organic gardener, collects bags of leaves from her neighbors' curbsides to fill [...]


    3. It wasn't as cozy as I expected, and Latin botanical names are used confusing this truly amateur gardener! Plenty of people / neighbors are introduced as the Eldridges settle into their new neighborhood, providing ample opportunities for future mysteries. And, Bill's undercover job for the State Department is another tangent for storylines. A teenage daughter at home and another at college further the possibilities. But about this murderLesson #1, don't collect other homeowners' bags of leaves. [...]


    4. If you're up for a light read this late spring and summer, Ann Ripley's Gardening Mysteries are the cozies for you. In Mulch, she introduces us to Louise Eldridge and her family. They moved to a ritzy Washington D.C. neighborhood from Bethesda, Maryland. They make waves and new friends, while Bill works for the government and Louise is an organic gardener and freelance writer. When they discover body parts in mulched garden bags, her family's under suspicion. But one of their neighbors has in it [...]


    5. Mulch by Ann Ripley is the first book in the gardening mystery series. Organic gardener, Louise Eldrick has collected several bags of oak leaves to fill in a low area on their new property and when she starts to spread the mulch, she finds body parts in amongst the leaves. This is not your typical mystery as we are told from the start who the murderer is. It is more an introduction to Louise and her family and how they get caught up in the murder. It was still an interesting and quick, light rea [...]


    6. First in series of gardening/mystery books. Like the cozy read setting in Leafy VA suburbs of DC. Establishment family of Louise & Bill with daughters Jane & Martha. Escapist reading into a world of characters up & down the socio-economic scale, yet there is a simplicity in the main characters & their way of life.The murder in this book was too grisly and awfully described for my reading pleasure.


    7. Great start to a series.[return][return]Good characters. Quick read. A couple spots seemed to jump a bit, but the book was still enjoyable.[return][return]Family moves to Washington area. Mother is an organic gardner, and gathers leaf bags from around the neighborhood for mulching purposes. Unfortunately, someone disposed of body parts in the bags.


    8. An excellent mystery even though you find out who the murderer is at the beginning. The only thing I found disturbing was the language. Totally unnecessary. I think some of the more modern cozy-murder writers think that that modern mysteries need modern language but this book could have done without it. Will definitely read the next one!


    9. Mulch was an easy read mystery set in VA. I enjoyed her style and its gardening tips and plant names woven into it. I gave it a 3 because it was predictable I would read more of these in the future though great for gardeners that love mysteries.


    10. Ummmhad hopes this would be an diverting cozy style mystery to listen to while I catalog dreary education administration books. I could hear paper moving while the reader narrated. Not a terrific listen or story.


    11. Good mystery series at firstfun books for gardeners. I wanted to read the entire series but the books all started melting into the same old story House mom gardener finds dead body and gets all mixed up in a murder mystery and solves the mystery.


    12. I kept this book in my luggage so every time I was stuck on an airplane I would have something to read during take offs and landings. Can't say I liked the heroine, but that didn't keep me from enjoying the story.




    13. I liked this book but the style of writing was different for me.I will try the next in series to see if I get into it better than this time around.
