Dollycas’s Thoughts Things get crazy in this 19th installment of the Flower Shop Mysteries. Abby and Marco are settling in to their new home and it is time to do a little landscaping. While shopping for shrubs Abby makes a strange discovery. They then learn the owner of the nursery is missing and Abby’s BFF Nikki may be involved. Nikki begs Abby to help her but Marco is working another case. She starts to do a little investigating on her own and unearths several reasons the man may be missing or dead. Just when Marco is ready to dig into the case Abby finds him unconscious and has to call 911. Now it is up to Abby to plow through all the clues and save Nikki and Marco too. This was such a fun read. Kate Collins always delivers a captivating cozy mystery starring characters that are some of my favorites. I was so glad to see Nikki play a prominent role even though I wanted to climb into the book several times and shake her by the shoulders or kick her in the butt. Abby is much more patient that I am but her frustration was very evident to everyone but Nikki. Marco and Abby are the perfect match. I love the way their relationship continues to grow and grow. Their love just blooms within these pages. I always love visiting Bloomers. Lottie, Grace and Rosa are such wonderful women with such positive outlooks. Jillian and Abby’s mom drop by the shop to give us some shake your head moments and a few giggles. Ms. Collins has written a story that moves along at a good clip. The plot in the story was like riding an emotional roller coaster and full of twists. The drama at times was intense. I was worried about Abby, Marco and Nikki. I couldn’t put the book down. The final twist took me totally by surprise. This was one of the first cozy mystery series I found way back when and instantly Kate Collins became one of my favorite authors. The stories are always fresh, fun, and entertaining. A difficult job when you get this deep into a series. You can jump into the series anywhere but you are going to want to go back and read them all. I am so looking forward to my next escape to New Chapel. This visit ended way too soon.

Super read. Fast paced and wow hold on to your seats. I cannot believe this is the 19th book in this series. It is so fresh and well plotted. I love these characters. I was not able to put this book down. You can read it as a standalone but if you havent read any in this series before I recommend you do. I loved "Yews with Caution". This series was one of the first I read when I started reading cozy mysteries and one of the reason it is the one genre' I love best. This is a fabulous book and so well written. Enjoy and hang on to your seats.

Once again author Kate Collins has plotted a garden of mystery, intermixed with mayhem and humor that is guaranteed to thrill readers’ senses. Making it to book nineteen in a mystery series is no small feat for an author. They have to develop storylines consisting of the same characters, come up with new ways to kill off the victim, stay on canon with the rest of stories, and they have to keep readers wanting to come back for more. Lots of hard work for sure. But with a book like, YEWS WITH CAUTION, Kate Collins proves that it can be done, and done well. Had I been drinking something as I read the end of chapter one of, YEWS WITH CAUTION , I would have done a spit take all over my book. As it is, I made an unladylike “HA!” starling my dog, my rabbit, and yes, even myself. Good thing no one else was home. Even as I type this review I’m laughing again at what I had read. This was such a fast paced, witty, you-never-know-what-the-next-page-will-bring mystery. Seriously, I flip flopped from holding my breath, to laughing out loud, to biting my bottom lip in anticipation. Sometimes all in one chapter! I couldn’t tear myself away from Abby and Marco, and all of the wonderful characters, and excitement between the covers of YEWS WITH CAUTION. Even after I had read the action filled reveal, and the tender ending, the book spoke to me the rest of the day.
