Overview

Enjoy her wedding shower…or receive a cold dunking?

In addition to running her flower shop, planning her wedding, and juggling two mothers who both want to host an elaborate bridal shower, Abby Knight is facing another complication. Her ditzy cousin Jillian asks her and her longtime beau, Marco, a private detective, to find a woman who’s gone missing from the exclusive beach house belonging to Jillian’s in-laws, the Osbornes. The missing woman is also the fiancée of Pryce Osborne, a wet noodle with a big bank account who dumped Abby just before their wedding several years ago. Merely being anywhere near Pryce makes Abby’s insecurities grow like kudzu….

Then a woman’s drowned body surfaces, and Pryce becomes a prime suspect in her death. Unless Abby and Marco can get a killer to come clean, their bridal shower will turn into a complete washout...and Pryce will be exchanging a sunny beach for a prison cell.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bride-to-be Abby Knight, a New Chapel, Ind., florist, has her hands full before a murder investigation is added to her calendar in Collins’s zippy 13th Flower Shop mystery (after 2011’s To Catch a Leaf). Abby is surprised when her first fiancé, wealthy Pryce Osborne II, asks her and her current beau, bar owner and PI Marco Salvare, to locate Pryce’s current fiancée, who’s gone missing. Despite her lingering hurt, Abby agrees to take the case. Abby juggles business at Bloomers Flower Shop and logistics for her bridal shower with trips to the Osbornes’ lakeside beach house and interviews with family and neighbors. Pryce becoming the prime suspect in a drowning murder raises the stakes. Meanwhile, pregnant cousin Jillian distracts Abby with ill-advised possible baby names. Abby’s warm and caring relationships, especially with Marco, will draw readers back as this cozy series continues to grow. Agent: Karen Solem, Spencerhill Associates. (Nov.)
