Acts of Violets by Kate Collins

Acts of Violets isn't the first of the Flower Shop mysteries by Kate Collins, but it was on my ever-growing list of TBRs. Regardless, you don't need to read them in order to pick up on the characters and their backgrounds, but I really liked this one and will go back and read the others. I also found out that Dearly Depotted (all the books have quirky titles) will be aired as a Hallmark movie in September starring Brooke Shields. I'm always a little disappointed when movies don't match up actors with the book characters. Abby Knight is described as a busty, 5' 2" woman with flame red hair and freckles!

From the cover:
Abby has been dating Marco - ex-cop, bartender, and all-around hunk - for several months when the Pickle Fest starts. But he's still a mystery to her. And after he disappears for a day, she's stunned to read in the paper: Ex-Cop question in Man's Death. It seems the authorities have found Snuggles the Clown pushing up water-spurting daisies - and Marco was the last person seen leaving Snuggles's house.

I am so glad you stopped by my blog and happy to find your blog now too.
I've been looking for something new to read and I think I will give Acts of Violets a try. I am intrigued by Dearly Depotted as well.
What a title!

I so enjoy this series by Kate Collins. The titles make me laugh. I've been wondering how Brooke Shields will be playing Abby. She not quite who I pictured for the part.
