    enjoyable series

    This series is fun. Being a retired florist, makes it very interesting to me. I like the plots, that keep your interest. All in all I have enjoyed the series. I have read them all, and always look forward to the next one.

    This is a series that is for the reader who wants entertainment. No big life lessons, just fun, relaxing reading.

    Review of Dearly Depotted

    Female-Sleuth Abby Knight is fresh out of law school - by way of flunking out. She is smart and spunky. Her flower shop is named Bloomers (catchy name) and she is always scrambling for new customers so she can pay her bills. She has a knack for finding dead bodies and for solving the crime. She fantasizes about her new friend, hunky Marco Salvare, who owns a restaurant down the street from Bloomers. He is a former cop and part-time private investigator and the perfect crime-solving partner for Abby. <BR/><BR/>In Dearly Depotted, Abby is a bridesmaid in her cousin Jillian's wedding. Jillian has a habit of backing out of her previous engagements and since Abby is doing the flowers for this wedding, she is nervous that Jillian will call off the wedding once again. But Abby can breathe a sigh of relief since the wedding goes as planned. <BR/><BR/>Well, not quite......somebody finds a dead body and Abby is off hunting for the killer. <BR/><BR/>I really like this series and am looking forward to reading the next book.

    Murder at a wedding

    Abby Knight is a bridesmaid in her cousin Jillian's wedding. Will Jillian really marry Claymore Osborne? She's been engaged many times but hasn't made it to the altar yet. When the groomsman Abby is to walk down the aisle with ends up injured and can't make the wedding, she gets Marco Salvare, her hunky boyfriend and owner of Down The Hatch Bar & Grill. Plus Abby is put on grandma duty to watch Claymore's 90-year-old grandma. When Abby loses the grandma at the wedding, she sets out frantically to find her. Unfortunately when she finds her, she's standing outside the gazebo where the dead body of Jack Snyder lays. He recently got out of jail. There are many suspects. Jack had gotten Jillian's cousin Melanie pregnant and dumped her. He and Melanie's dad Josiah went at it right before the wedding, too. But the police seem to put their sights on Richard Davis for the murder. Grace, an employee of Abby's, is dating Richard and asks for Abby's help. Can she find the real killer? This is one of my favorite series. The sexual tension between Abby and Marco is fabulous. Just enough information without going overboard to know it's there. Abby is such a wonderful sleuth, too. She can get herself into some terrible situations, but I don't find myself yelling at her or throwing the book like in some series. I usually read the books in this series in 2-3 days because they are so much fun and such an easy cozy series to read. I highly recommend this book and series.

    Spirited snooper, sleuther Abby unearths the killer again!

    Abby is in the thick of things again. She has to wear an ugly dress since she is the bridesmaid in her cousin's wedding. A fight breaks out at the ceremony which starts off a chain of events with a man winding up dead behind the minister's pulpit. There are many good suspect's in this story which will keep you guessing tell the end. There are new sub-plots created which adds dimension to the story and it's characters. I wish the romance between Abby and Marco had more fire in this book. Let's hope the romance between those two pick's up more in the next one!

    An exciting who-done-it

    After flunking out of law school, Abby Knight buys Bloomers, a New Chapel, Indiana flower shop from the original owner Lottie who sold the store when her husband¿s medical bills nearly forced them into bankruptcy. For the Fourth of July weekend, one of Abby¿s clients ordered begonias in red, white, & blue but the supplier sent pink carnations forcing Abby to spray paint them red................ She is also the bridesmaid at her cousin Jillian¿s wedding, the same relative who stood up four husbands-to-be. Abby makes sure that her cousin goes through with their wedding but after the nuptials, she finds a dead body in the gazebo. The dead man is the father of Melanie¿s child (jillian¿s cousin) who had a fight with Melanie¿s father. Instead the police arrest the boyfriend of Abby¿s assistant because he threatened the victim after he discovered he was embezzling from his company and has a record that says he murdered someone in Texas. Abby sets out to prove he is innocent even though it puts her life in danger....................... Dearly Depotted is an exciting who-done-it because there are so many suspects who had reasons to kill the victim that readers will become absorbed in the story and will finish in one sitting. The heroine is loyal to her friends and is determined to find a suspect other than Richard while she is trying to figure out if her friend Marco who she is attracted to is ever going to take her out. Kate Collins¿ amateur sleuth tale is original and charming with so many unexpected twists that readers will have a hard time trying to figure out who the murderer really is..............
