The Big Dirt Nap * review *

The Big Dirt Nap
by Rosemary Harris

Second book in the Dirty Business Mystery Series

An all-expenses paid weekend at an upstate hotel with her oldest friend seems like a good idea to Paula Holliday. After all, gardening season doesn’t really kick in for another few weeks and she and Lucy Cavanaugh haven’t had a chance to catch up since they worked together in the television business. Besides, the hotel is playing host to a rare corpse flower which is just about to bloom. But when Lucy doesn’t show up and a dead guy does, it seems like less of a good idea.

Add some Ukrainian mobsters, a pair of ladykilling brothers, a bankrupt businessmen and a group of college kids who know how to party, and Paula has her hands full trying to find her friend and figure out what it is that everyone seems to think she knows . . .

You can read an excerpt of the book HERE.


I love the Dirty Business Mysteries! They are, by far, the most "fun" mysteries I have ever read. The Big Dirt Nap kept me interested and entertained all the way through. I get a kick out of the main character, Paula, and the humour mixed with intrigue is very appealing. Rosemary Harris does a fantastic job of writing in a way that engages the reader right from the start. As with Pushing Up Daisies - the first book in the series - I loved that I didn't know the ending until the actual end of the book!

The Big Dirt Nap is the second book in the series but it could be read as a stand-alone novel without too much confusion. 

Thanks so much to Rosemary Harris for sending me a copy of her fabulous book to review! You can find my review of the first book in the series- Pushing Up Daisies and keep an eye out for my review of the newest book Dead Head.
