LET'S GET COZY! NIGHTSHADE ON ELM STREET: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


GIVEAWAY ENDED
NIGHTSHADE ON ELM STREET
A FLOWER SHOP MYSTERY 
BY KATE COLLINS
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Enjoy her wedding shower…or receive a cold dunking?

In addition to running her flower shop, planning her wedding, and juggling two mothers who both want to host an elaborate bridal shower, Abby Knight is facing another complication. Her ditzy cousin Jillian asks her and her longtime beau, Marco, a private detective, to find a woman who’s gone missing from the exclusive beach house belonging to Jillian’s in-laws, the Osbornes. The missing woman is also the fiancée of Pryce Osborne, a wet noodle with a big bank account who dumped Abby just before their wedding several years ago. Merely being anywhere near Pryce makes Abby’s insecurities grow like kudzu….

Then a woman’s drowned body surfaces, and Pryce becomes a prime suspect in her death. Unless Abby and Marco can get a killer to come clean, their bridal shower will turn into a complete washout...and Pryce will be exchanging a sunny beach for a prison cell.

I have been wanting to read this series for years. It looks so cozy and so great, that I don't even know why I have yet to pick it up. I would love to win this book as it really does sound like something that I would love. Thanks for the giveaway.

Poor Abby...working instead of enjoying her shower time. Pryce should just flounder for leaving her hanging. This sounds good.

I like the flower shop connection to the book---with winter setting in just dreaming of flower and smelling them in a flower shop sounds great to me.
