“A Botanist’s Guide to Parties and Poisons”

by | Apr 2024

In honor of spring and Earth Day, A Botanist’s Guide to Parties and Poisons by Kate Khavari is a historical mystery about a female botanist, who uses her knowledge of plants to help clear the name of her favorite professor, who’s been wrongfully accused of murder.

As a female scientist in academia in 1923 London, the heroine, Saffron, faces many barriers in her chosen field and in solving the murder. Khavari’s incorporation of botany makes this murder mystery unique, and as readers are swept away in finding out who done it, they may find themselves absorbing fascinating facts they never knew they wanted to know about plants and their vast uses.

Currently a three-book series, if you enjoy this book, you can look forward to more to come with this intrepid 1920s British heroine and her knack for solving mysterious botanical murders.
