    A reviewer

    Very few people are as happy as Abby Knight is. She gets on great with her family her developing relationship with private investigator Marco Salvatore is strong and intense and she loves working in her florist shop Bloomers.-------------------- Elizabeth ¿Libby¿ Blume returns to town to Abby¿s horror as she knows how treacherous the woman is since she babysat her as a child and tried to steal her identity. Libby asks for a job at Abby¿s store, but Abby says no. Instead Libby opens up an art store up the block from Bloomers that is almost identical in looks she also manages to make herself look like Abby¿s twin. She interferes with Abby¿s relationship with Marco causing a breakup. When Libby¿s mom turns up dead, everyone assumes the daughter killed her mostly due to Abby¿s behavior towards Libby, but evidence is lacking. Abby investigates seeking the proof although two other suspects with strong motives surface including the victim¿s mentally disturbed son meds he does not always take.. ------------- Kate Collins keeps getting better with each new book she writes, which is saying a lot as her backlist is top rate (see A ROSE FROM THE DEAD). The amateur sleuth investigation is fun to follow as the key characters are fully developed especially the ¿twins¿ and Marco yet there is plenty of action filled with plausible twists. Often amusing, the fun in the tale is Abby¿s deep desire to prove Libby committed the homicide, but every clue leads away from the manipulative minx to other people. The Abby-Marco romantic subplot with its Libby-induced troubles adds to the heroine¿s need to find the proof as SHOOTS TO KILL is an entreating whodunit.----------- Harriet Klausner

    A great addition to the series

    Abby Knight is not happy to see a blast from her past, a college grad whom she used to babysit years ago. Now Elizabeth (going by Libby now) is back in town and wants to work for Abby. When Abby turns her down, she decides to open up an art studio just down the street. Her new store is almost an exact duplicate of Abby's flower shop. And that's not all that Libby's copying. Soon she's butting into all aspects of Abby's life including her relationship wth Marcus. Libby even copies Abby's hair style, buys a yellow corvette, and shows up for family dinners. This is more that Abby can take, but just when she's about to snap, Libby's mother turns up dead. Abby needs to solve this case and uncover Libby's behavior in order to recover her own life back. But are some things beyond repair?

    Great tension in terms of relationships: romance, friendships, and even family are questioned. Twists keep readers on their toes and up late at night reading til the end. (or maybe that was just me). If you're new to this years, though, start with the beginning, Mum's the Word and work your way through. You won't want to miss this series if you're a cozy mystery reader.

    Love this series!

    Abby Knight is back for the seventh book of A Flower Shop Mystery Series. This time Abby finds herself involved with a former charge who gradually steals Abby¿s life. Right away Abby feels Libby is up to no good, however everyone else thinks Abby is overreacting. Things soon turn from bad to worse when Abby is mistakenly arrested for murder. Abby thinks Libby set her up, however Abby doesn¿t have any proof.<BR/><BR/>Libby comes between Abby¿s relationship with Marco which leaves Abby no choice but to end the relationship. As Abby starts her own investigation, she finds herself, unwillingly, working with Marco. Together they try to solve the murder, while trying to avoid their feelings for each other.<BR/><BR/>Shoots to Kill is a good addition to the series. Abby Knight is an amateur sleuth with common sense. She constantly finds herself in the middle of murder investigations (sometimes she¿s a suspect) due to her meddling, but she means well. I would recommend this series to anyone looking for a new cozy mystery with a hint of romance.<BR/><BR/>4.5/5

    Murder and mistaken identity

    Elizabeth Blume has returned to town. When she was eleven, Abby Knight babysat her. Now Elizabeth is imitating everything in Abby's life and no one else seems to see it. She's changed her name to Libby, buys a similar car, and opens a shop that looks identical. She's even put a wedge between Abby and Marco. <BR/><BR/>Abby is accused of murder. Then Libby is accused of murder. Could Libby been imitating Abby just to cover up the murder. Or is someone else framing both of them? Abby sets out to figure things out before she ends up in jail for a murder she didn't commit.<BR/><BR/>I love this series. Abby is such a fun character. The sparks always fly when she and Marco are together. The two women who help Abby in the flower shop are fabulous, too. Abby's mom is irritating, but then she's supposed to be. <BR/><BR/>I always devour these books in a couple of days. I highly recommend this book and the whole series.
