In River City, Missouri, the "wedding of the year" is causing florist Bretta Solomon one headache after another. Bretta and a few other River City business owners have been hired by a newcomer to this small Midwestern town to throw an unforgettable party for Evelyn Montgomery's daughter, and Evelyn wants every lavish detail to be perfectly done. Bretta; Oliver, the landscaper; Sonya, the wedding coordinator; Claire, the beautician; Dana, the caterer; and Kasey, the photographer; are all being driven nuts by Evelyn's last-minute, over-the-top demands.
Furthermore, during the week leading up to the wedding, Bretta's estranged father shows up for a "surprise" visit and moves himself into her house. And as if these two events alone weren't enough, the enigmatic Bailey Monroe, a DEA agent Bretta met during a previous adventure, also has arrived in town claiming a desire to get to know her better. It's shaping up to be quite a week.
But just when she thinks things can't get any worse, two wedding workers die suspiciously on the same day, and Bretta can't help but think there's something more sinister in the air than love and marriage. In Reap a Wicked Harvest, it's up to Janis Harrison's delightfully determined gardening sleuth to figure out just exactly what's going on before the big day.
