Good start to this series

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.

    Really good mystery. It was a little predictable, but the romance and humor thrown in made up for it. I would read other books in this series.

    Great Mystery!

    Abby Knight is not your ordinary flower shop owner. She is your modern day Nancy Drew! Abby is one gal who does not back down no matter how much damage she gets herself into. She has awesome friends she can rely on, and an a new crush she can dream about especially when he helps her out of few predicaments. When Abby finds herself battling against men three times her size, she stands her ground, making her a role model for all women. Even when Abby comes across some deadly situations, she sticks it out! 'Mum's the Word' is a wonderful first book in a wonderful series!
