I bet Carmen would go with me!
I got out of bed and started to get dress.
I started to the door before he stopped me, clearing his throat. "Um, is that what you're going to wear?"
I stopped and looked down. "What? No sweats?" I asked.
I made a mental note to order a salad.
"This is going to be fun!" I told him, wondering if I should've mentioned the potential health risk...
"Carmen, I need to go take care of something real quick. Meet you at home?"
Carmen shrugged. "Sure, babe. Are you working a case?"
"Oh boy, am I ever!" I said sourly.
Boyd nodded. "That's right. I grow the plants," he glanced over towards his wife. "Susan prepares the fertilizer. She's developed an award-winning concoction."
I lifted an eyebrow and made a note. Very suspicious. "Would you mind if I poked around your garden... to make sure everything's in order?"
"What's this about?" Boyd asked, regarding me suspiciously now.
"There's been a few complaints of food poisoning at the bistro and I am attempting to trace the origins of the contamination. I would hate to involve the health department if I clear this up locally..."
Boyd immediately became conciliatory. "By all means, you're welcome to inspect my garden!"
"Oh, sorry!" he apologized to the strange woman. "I thought you were someone else..."
The food at the bistro is clearly tainted, but the supplier isn't. Who else would gain if a rumor gained hold about food poisoning at the bistro?
Perhaps someone tired of being second fiddle?
I glanced in the window to see if anyone was about. To my surprise, Narcissa was there in the kitchen and was quite startled to see me. The moment she saw me, she jumped a little and then hurriedly stuffed all the produce she had on the counter back into their containers.
"Now's not a good time," she interrupted, faking a large yawn. "I'm about to head to bed. Come back tomorrow and we'll talk."
I watched her head back inside.
Suspiciouser and suspiciouser...
