9780099534143: Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire

Lila Nova never imagined her desires could prove so dangerous. And she never dreamed of the exotic turn her life is about to take. Stumbling across a steamy New York laundromat overgrown with ferns, Lila is captivated by the strange owner, Armand. More interested in plants than laundry, in Lila he recognises an untapped energy. A kindred spirit. When Lila betrays his confidence and his livelihood is destroyed, she offers to do anything to make amends, never expecting that his response will lead her to the Yucatan. Through the isolation, mysticism and adventure of the Mexican rainforest, Lila's eyes are finally opened. And what she discovers about herself is both terrifying and exhilarating.

Amazon Exclusive: Christina Schwarz Reviews Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire

Christina Schwarz is the author of So Long at the Fair, All Is Vanity, and Drowning Ruth, a #1 bestseller in both hardcover and paperback, which was selected for Oprah’s Book Club and optioned by Wes Craven for Miramax. Read her exclusive Amazon guest review of Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire:

Debut novelist Margot Berwin gives her fecund imagination free play in this lush and steamy summer read. Recently divorced and craving a blank slate, 30-something advertising copywriter Lila Nova moves into a new studio apartment “with absolutely no character” on Union Square. Lila, the sort of contemporary heroine given to amusing self-deflating wisecracks, is not, however, destined to inhabit a clean, white box for long. Within a few chapters, packed with romantic betrayal, plant lore and a couple of visits to a surreal Laundromat in the East Village, she’s on her way to “high adventure” in the Yucatan rain forest, where she’ll encounter ancient magic, poisonous creatures, a murderous exotic plant dealer, and, yes, true love. A wildly inventive novel as vivid and colorful as a jungle flower.
