LET'S GET COZY! FLORIST GRUMP: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
FLORIST GRUMP
A Flower Shop Mystery
BY KATE COLLINS

ABOUT THE BOOK:
From the New York Times bestselling author of A Root Awakening, feisty florist Abby Knight is back with another knotty murder to solve in the next Flower Shop Mystery…

Life in Bloom

Stopping to smell the roses should be a must for flower shop owner Abby Knight, but stress has turned her into a major grump. While their house is under construction, Abby and her new husband, Marco, are living with her parents, who are driving her nuts. Not to mention that everyone has babies on the brain, with her cousin Jillian’s bundle of joy popping up in every conversation, and Marco’s mother dropping hints that she expects a new sprout from Abby and her son—as soon as possible!

But things get even thornier after a flashy former banker pushes up daisies. With a beloved window washer the prime suspect in the murder, other New Chapel shop owners rally around Abby and Marco to prove his innocence. With Abby’s energy wilting, she has to be on high alert—or she and Marco may not live to see their new home…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Her books have made the Barnes & Noble mass market mystery best-sellers’ lists, the Independent Booksellers’ best-seller’s lists, as well as booksellers’ lists in Australia and England. All of the books are available in hardback, large print editions both in the U.S. and in the UK. 

An Indiana native, Kate graduated from Purdue University with a master’s degree in education. She taught elementary school for six years, but after the birth of her first child, gave up her teaching career to pursue a long-time dream of putting her stories to paper. After writing short humorous stories for children’s magazines and working part-time as a legal secretary, she sold her first historical romance novel in 1995. Since then she has published seven historical romantic suspenses and eight mysteries. 

Kate is currently working on a book in the Flower Shop series. When not growing roots at her computer, Kate loves to grow flowers and vegetables in her garden. Other passions include yoga, exploring the Greek Isles, decorating, power walking, spending time with family and friends, sampling great wines and dark chocolate, and enjoying every moment of life. The author lives with her husband in Northwest Indiana and Key West, Florida.

I love the title...it makes me laugh. Interfering family is a pain. I guess it comes with living together. I'd like to see how she figures this out and proves Marco has nothing to do with it.
