Her Cousin, Much Removed, by I. L. Wolf
Venetia Shipman wasn't exactly fond of her cousin(ish) Delenda O'Brien, and Delenda's sudden death didn't really change that, especially since it looks like Delenda was trying to frame Venetia for something. What, she doesn't know, but now this lawyer-turned-urban-gardener is in it up to her eyeballs thanks to her, and, to make it worse, Delenda died without even returning Venetia's platter.

Now she may never get it back.

Detective Cadby James is on the case, and while he may not be too bad looking, Venetia isn't so sure he can solve the murder without her help. Whether he wants it or not.
