Carolyn P. Schriber about this book: "What Grows in Your Garden" expanded as I wrote it--much like the gardens that inspired the title. it started as a simple cozy mystery. A new college professor (Sarah Chomsky) faces a series of escalating challenges from a student who suffers from a bipolar disorder. Then the book takes on some romantic features as Sarah meets a handsome policeman who fits her mother's prayer for a "nice Jewish boy." A third category emerges as the troublesome student decides to experiment with witchcraft.
Those three aspects should be enough to keep the reader guessing, but there is more to come as the story progresses. A special cat wanders through the story, adding his own unique character to the mix. The college setting provides several interesting minor characters, as well as a time frame that influences events. And the last chapter provides recipes for some of the unique dishes that mark Jewish holidays. Within this tight framework of academic schedules and religious observances, the main characters struggle to keep their lives on an even keel.
