"Move over, Stephanie Plum. Abby Knight has come to town."—Denise Swanson, Author of the Scumble River Mysteries

When I swapped the thorny problems of law school for the budding business of my flower store, Bloomers, I vowed that I, Abby Knight, wouldn’t be caught dead visiting that hateful campus ever again. But sometimes a girl’s got to face down her dragons....

PLANT OF ATTACK

Someone orders a black rose for Abby’s old law school nemesis, Professor “Snapdragon” Puffer. But her plans for a speedy delivery are foiled when he catches her putting the bloom on his desk and sends it straight into the trash. Abby flees in terror, only to run smack into Carson Reed, the professor who recently had her arrested at an animal rights protest. After a biting exchange, Abby storms out of the building. But if there’s anything she can’t stand, it’s injustice and bullies. So, even though she knows bad luck comes in threes, she ignores the advice of her sometimes boyfriend, hunk-a-licious Marco Salvare, and heads back in to retrieve her dignity and her flower—only to find the rose now decorating a dead professor, and herself the prime suspect....

“A bouquet of irresistible characters.”—Elaine Viets, Author of the Dead-End Job Mysteries

“A spirited sleuth....Here’s hoping we see more of intrepid florist Abby Knight.” —Nancy J. Cohen, Author of the Bad Hair Day Mysteries
