After completing one year of law school, Abby Knight realizes becoming a lawyer is just not for her. Instead she decides to focus on what she is passionate about: arranging flowers. She opens up her own flower shop, Bloomers, much to her mother's chagrin. Abby's brothers are successful doctors, with country club memberships. Abby was formerly engaged to Pryce Osborne until she realized he wasn't the man she thought he was. Her mother is constantly nagging her about the choices she has made in her life and hopes she will settle down and marry soon. Next to her shop, her yellow corvette is her prized possession. As she arrives to work one morning, her vette is hit by a black SUV and the driver doesn't stop to see if she's ok. Abby quickly decides to take matters in her own hands when the police trivializes her report. Soon, she realizes that minutes prior to her car being hit, a murder took place blocks away from the accident. Abby puts two and two together and thinks the killer smashed her car while trying to get away from the scene of the crime. Despite her employee's, Grace, warnings about meddling in the police investigation, Abby finds herself in the middle and receives threats to back off the investigation. Abby enlists the help of her roommate and employees and not to mention, gorgeous Marco to solve the crime before anyone else is killed.

    I'd skip it!

    I love mysteries - but not this one. I can honestly say that it reminded me of the Nancy Drew series. I'd have absolutely loved this at 12-14 but now it was just a time waster. I will eventually try another and see if maybe it was just a funk I was in but, unless you enjoy the wholesome Nancy Drew mysteries, I'd skip these.
