LET'S GET COZY! FLORAL DEPRAVITY: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
FLORAL DEPRAVITY
A Bridal Bouquet Shop Mystery
BY BEVERLY ALLEN

ABOUT THE BOOK:
In the latest Bridal Bouquet Shop mystery, florist Audrey Bloom creates an arrangement for a one-of-a-kind wedding, but ends up pruning a one-of-a-kind criminal...

As the co-owner of the Rose in Bloom Flower Shop, Audrey knows how to put together unique wedding bouquets, but this one takes the cake. The daughter of a local historian is getting married in a medieval-themed, hand-fasting ceremony, and Audrey is responsible for providing period-accurate blooms.

But making sure she gets her roses right turns out to be the least of Audrey's problems. Shortly after the vows are exchanged, the father of the groom suddenly drops dead. When Audrey discovers the man's death stems from monkshood poisoning, it's a clear-cut case of murder. Now, faced with a suspect list that rivals the guest list, Audrey needs to root out the toxic killer...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Barbara Early (A.K.A. Beverly Allen) grew up buried in the snowy suburbs of Buffalo, NY, where she developed a love for all things sedentary: reading, writing, classic movies, and Facebook Scrabble. She holds a degree in Electrical Engineering, but her penchant for the creative caused her to run away screaming from the pocket-protector set.

She taught secondary English and science for several years before home schooling her daughter successfully through high school. Barbara cooks up cozy mysteries with a healthy dose of comedy and sometimes a splash of romance.

When not reading or writing, she enjoys cooking, crafts, home-improvement projects, and spending time with her husband and daughter.

FLORAL DEPRAVITY sounds like a fun mystery! I like the medieval theme of the wedding, and I think it is interesting the wedding requires having correct time period blooms. I am looking forward to reading this book. Thank you for the giveaway.

My neighbor worked in the theater arts dept of a college in costuming so I understand doing things in period design but never heard of it for flowers. What an odd way to poison someone. I'd like to read this. It would be interesting.
