Rosemary & Thyme: Series 1 - 3 on DVD

Rosemary & Thyme: Series 1 - 3
[DVD Rosemary]

Rosemary Box is a former university lecturer on plant pathology and Laura Thyme is a former police woman. When they meet in the first episode Rosemary has just lost her job and Laura's just been through a divorce. They start doing gardening jobs together, but it's a mystery series so each time they get a new job, there is a new murder mystery and sometimes a botany mystery to solve. I like the balance this show has between the mystery and gardening aspect. I feel in some mystery series it's rather unlikely that one small village has murder after murder. However, these two take jobs around England and Europe so it seems less odd that there is a murder in each and every show. I also like the character development over the three seasons, particularly with Laura. She moves on with her life after the divorce, heals relationships with her daughter and becomes comfortable with life as a gardener. There is nothing graphic in nature so even if you like lite mysteries I'd recommend this. I really enjoyed the series. -- recommended by Kristen A. - Gere Branch Library [ see Kristen's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]
