The Final Arrangement
The Flower Shop Mystery Series, #1
The Vulture is dead.
The body of Quincy McKay’s nemesis and biggest competitor in the floral business has just been discovered in a casket at the mortuary, complete with flowers on the lid.
Derrick Gibbons, aka The Vulture, stole all of Quincy’s funeral business, and now she’s on a mission to get it back. But there’s a problem—Quincy is now the main suspect in The Vulture’s murder.
Armed with only her Zombie delivery van, good intentions, and the business card of a handsome cop named Alex, she must find the killer, save the flower shop, and keep from ending up in the next casket. If she can dodge burning bushes, the plague of a polygamist ex, and her mother’s Mormon Mafia Spy Network, her life with Alex and her shop could become the perfect arrangement.
Annie Adams is the author of The Final Arrangement, book one in The Flower Shop Mystery series. She lives with her husband, two giant dogs, and two too giant cats in Northern Utah at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains. When not writing she can be found arranging flowers or delivering them in her own Zombie Delivery Van.
The Final Arrangement is the first book in the new Flower Shop Mystery Series. I absolutely loved it! Quincy McKay is an intelligent, stubborn character and I felt I could relate to her right from the beginning. She is just trying to ‘glide’ through life unnoticed for the most part, when her life becomes tangled up with the death of a fellow florist and things start to get out of control. For Quincy, being in control of her situation as well as her emotions is something that’s very important. Unfortunately for her, she ends up in situation after situation where she is not in control of much of anything.
This was a really good mystery, and I enjoyed the flower shop elements of the story. I also liked the budding romance between Quincy and Officer Alex Cooper. This is a great start to a new cozy series, and one that I highly recommend.
