Dirty Rotten Tendrils

What Do You Call One Murdered Lawyer?

Spring is blooming in New Chapel, Indiana, but Abby's beloved small town has become a media circus. Singer Cody Verse has returned home after winning on America's Next Hit Single with his song "Code Blue". He has brought high-powered lawyer Ken "the Lip" Lipinski with him to fend off a lawsuit from his former songwriting partner.

Then the Lip is in need of a code blue himself when he's found dead from a suspicious overdose. Abby finds it hard to swallow the opposing counsel - and her old boss - Dave Hammond could be the killer. Now Abby and her hot boyfriend, Marco, must prune the list of suspects for the murder of a man who had more enemies than his client has fans...

I've been reading the Flower Shop Mystery series for years and in my honest opinion that hasn't been a bad book in the bunch. And I'm hoping that it will continue to be that way... Of course there is always the odd book that doesn't quit measure to the rest, but it is a very entertaining series.

And this book didn't disappoint. Abby is being her usual self, nosy and pertective of her loved ones; and Marco is trying to keep her out of trouble, the usual. Add the rest of the gang, and a few new characters and you have a very interesting story to tell. Usually I'm able to figure it out halfway through the book, but with this one I was stunned on who the murderer was.
