Description:

Abby and Marco's new neighborhood isn't as rosy as it seems in the latest Flower Shop Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Florist Grump and A Root Awakening.

Flower shop owner Abby Knight and her husband, Marco, are ecstatic to finally be moving into their new home, despite the prospect of unpacking a seemingly infinite number of boxes. After all, Brandywine—their new subdivision—seems like an oasis with its welcoming neighbors and beautifully manicured lawns. 

But their idyllic community is suddenly uprooted when a body is found floating in a nearby pond. The police think Abby and Marco's helpful next door neighbor is the culprit, but the newlyweds aren't convinced. 

Meanwhile, Marco distrusts his mother's slick new boyfriend, and Abby's cousin Jillian has agreed to decorate their new home, resulting in comic chaos. Even worse, as Abby and Marco dig through Brandywine's secrets in search of a killer, they discover that some flowers come from very bad seeds...and danger stalks even the sunniest small-town streets.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Abby Knight and her husband Marco as they have moved into their new home and are meeting their new neighbors when they find a body floating in the pond when all leads point to their new neighbor Abby has trouble buying the sweet old lady next door could have killed the man in the pond.

Marco and Abby has their hands full trying to figure out who killed the Dirk unfortunately there are no shortage of suspects from a flirt who betrays her friends by sleeping with their husbands to all the many people Dirk the deceased was blackmailing.  Or could it possibly be his wife?  She has plenty of motive to be had.

I love reading about Abby and her team of friends and family.  You always know Abby will get her guy or gal. I love watching them comb through the suspects to get to the bad guys can't wait to see what is next for Abby and Marco!
