    Murder at a funeral directors convention

    Abby Knight, owner of Bloomers flower shop, has agreed to attend the Midwestern Funeral Directors Convention to try to drum up more business. She shares a booth with her friends Delilah and Max Dove. Considering there is a casket race and a coffin decoration contest, Abby soon finds out it isn't as dull as she expected. Delilah becomes the prime suspect in Sybil Blount's murder because Delilah had arrived to the banquet late because she was repairing their decorated coffin for the contest and Sybil was found murdered in a decorated coffin. Plus earlier Delilah had had a run-in with Sybil over the size of their booth. Sybil was the organizer of the convention. Abby believes the urbane twins Ross & Jess may be responsible for Sybil's death due to some of the pranks they'd pulled on Abby. Could Sybil have been blackmailing someone? How did she get Chet Sunday, the handsome cable TV star, to appear at the convention? Abby and her boyfriend Marco, an ex-cop and owner of Down the Hatch Bar and Grill, set out to clear Delilah and find the real killer. What a great setting for a mystery! I enjoyed the various suspects, of which there were many. Abby and Marco are fabulous together. I like it when they work together, as much as Abby will work with anyone. This series is a fabulous cozy mystery series, and I highly recommend it and this book!

    amusing graveyard amateur sleuth mystery

    In New Chapel, Indiana, flower shop owner Abby Knight worries about her business failing. She needs new customers and knows that flowers and funerals go together like bacon and eggs. Thus she decides to open up a ¿tasteful¿ floral booth at the Funeral Director Society¿s annual convention.--------- On the down side Abby will deal with some creepy souls who appreciate the DEARLY DEPOTTED as no one else can dig them. For instance the Colonel who is president of the FDS is the self anointed Master Mortician who insists he knows everything there is in converting a corpse into a living tribute and is willing to tell anyone who is not afraid to ask him for a consultation. Then there is the environmental ground hugger Eli ¿Green Guy¿ Cotton who believes Kermit is right that grieving relatives should send their loved ones off in green. The lively gala turns morbid when cosmetician to the dead Sybil ¿the Diva of Death Masks¿ Blount is killed. Unable to resist, Abby investigates who was drumming up business.--------- The latest Flower Shop mystery (see MUM'S THE WORD and ACTS OF VIOLET) is an amusing graveyard amateur sleuth that will have the audience laughing at the antics of the conventioneers and Abby¿s matchmaking mom. The story line is humorous as Abby knows she should have snipped her curiosity in the bud, but instead digs up clues. Harriet Klausner

    exciting

    While a lot of people may not read this series (that I know of, anyway), I for one can't wait for this book to come out. Abby is quirky and hilarious and she is always getting into dangerous (while also a bit funny) situations. Great mysteries!
