This third book in the Amish Greenhouse Mystery series can be read as a stand alone. Events that previously happened may be referred to but with enough explanation that the reader doesn’t feel anything lacking in the story.

Belinda King is attempting to keep her greenhouse business going with the help of her son and daughters after the tragic death of her husband two years earlier. And despite the threats and vandalism that continue to plague them. But business is not all that is on Belinda’s mind. Two Amish men are trying to woo her and she is not even sure she wants to entertain the idea of marrying again.  Add to all this, Maude “the crazy lady” (according to Belinda’s son Henry) and Virginia, their very unhappy and disgruntled neighbor and you have a lively story with many scenarios keeping things interesting.

This reviewer is a fan of Amish function but feels the author’s writing in The Robin’s greeting is not her usual fare but a little stilted. Yet still an interesting read for those who enjoy reading about the Plain people.
