Casey Calhoun. White House Assistant Gardener
From: Dorothy St. James's White House Gardener Mysteries
(The Scarlet Pepper, coming in April 2012)
Tis the season when I start humming silly tunes without even realizing it. And craving frosted cookies. Please, tell me I'm not the only one!
This year, my first year at the White House, I've gone holiday crazy! There's even a bright red bow in my hair. But really...how can I not get into the spirit of things when I'm surrounded by a wonderland of holiday decorations?
The day after Thanksgiving, Christmas started to take shape around here. With the assistance of 136 volunteers from 36 states, in just five days the president's residence was transformed into a holiday show-stopper!
Dorothy St. James writes the White House Gardener Mysteries for Berkley Prime Crime. Flowerbed of State is the first book in the series. Be sure to grab your copy while they're still available! Visit with Dorothy on the web or at Facebook. Or follow her on Twitter.
Praise for FLOWERBED OF STATE:
