This special holiday murder mystery takes place in the City of Blarney in your state. Your guests are invited to a St. Patrick's Day party to honor Patrick Flaherty, owner of Flaherty's True Green Plant Nursery.
When they arrive, they find out that Flaherty died the previous night after a get-together that celebrated the nursery's centennial year. Instead of having a party, your guests will be attending his wake. Family members and acquaintances pay their respects to Flaherty and, in the process, drop hints that Flaherty's death might be more than accidental. An undercover member of the local police force, who believes that foul play is prevalent, leads the homicide investigation.
Flaherty's True Green Plant Nursery has been serving the Blarney area for the last 100 years since Pader Flaherty, the nursery's founder, built a greenhouse to grow plants that thrived in his native Ireland.
Through the years, operations expanded and, ten years ago, Pader's grandson, Patrick, became majority owner of a business that is still family-run. Today, Flaherty's is a major producer of shamrocks, supplying the entire state with the plant, especially for "the wearin' of the green."
Although rumors persist that all is not well, the family has maintained an outward calm, denying all rumors of a rift. The business seemed to be going well until Patrick Flaherty's body was found in the pond at the nursery.Fiona Reilly Flaherty
