I really enjoyed the first book in the series, and completely disagree with some of the reviews that I read before picking the book up at my local library. I read a lot of cozy mysteries, and love the genre. Not everyone will, however, so if you are not a fan of cozies, I would look elsewhere, as it definitely follows the cozy style. I thought the book had an interesting setting, a likeable main character in Abby, great supporting characters in Abby's family and friends, and plenty of romantic tension. I found myself laughing aloud at times...and enjoy the fact that this series offers a bit of humor to go along with the good mystery. If you are a fan of Heather Webber, Donna Andrews, or Maddy Hunter, give this series a try.
The second book in the series is called "Slay it With Flowers". Enjoy!
In her determination to find the person who wrecked her car, Abby becomes involved in a murder that happened in one of the nearby apartments. A young drug addict is murdered and Abby begins to wonder if the man she's seeking may have been the killer.
Threatening phone calls, almost fatal accidents make Abby wonder if a murderer isn't also looking for her. But is it the man in the SUV or is the husband of Pearl, who made several threatening remarks to Abby after she helped his wife leave him and found her snooping into his financial affairs.
With the help of ex-cop, Marco Salvare, Abby has to decide is the killer, the bad driver, an angry husband, or is it something more, a murder which reaches high into the local government and police officials.
Abby is a great character. She is so determined to find who smashed her car that looking for a murderer just seems a natural extension of that.
Marco Salvare, former cop, new bar owner, always seems to be around when Abby needs him.
Not a lot of supporting characters yet, but her employee's are interesting and more characters should be added as the series goes along.
Good mystery. Very complicated, but never cheats.
Abby's flower shop. I can't see how this could possibly make any money when there's a discount flower franchise nearby.
A nice start to what could turn out to be a very good series.
The love interest, Marco Salvare, is pretty much a cliché - a gorgeous Italian ex-cop who for some unknown reason finds her interfering ways attractive. And you know, as a reader, you're in trouble when one of the adjectives used to describe a kiss is "manly".
The mystery itself wasn't too bad, with a lot of red herrings, but it was pretty clear early on who was doing what. The book was well-written but nothing special. All in all, a rather pedestrian offering to the mystery sleuth genre. I won't be buying the next installment.
