Cut down among the flowers . . .
Britta Johnston might be a late bloomer, but after leaving her deadbeat husband and dead-end job, she’s finally pursuing her artistic passion at her aunt Elin’s floral boutique, Blooma, in Portland, Oregon. It’s on the banks of the Willamette, in a quaint district of cobblestone paths and cherry trees. The wine bar featuring Pacific Northwest vintages is a tasty bonus, offering another kind of bouquet to enjoy. But things aren’t as peaceful as they look.
For one thing, someone’s been leaving dead roses around–and a sleazy real estate developer who wants the waterfront property has put a big-money offer on the table.
Then, after a contentious meeting of local business owners, he’s found on the floor of the shop, with Elin’s garden shears planted in his chest. And before the police decide to pin the crime on her beloved aunt, Britta will have to find out who arranged this murder . . .

What about you? Do you have a green thumb?
Honestly, I don’t think I have a green thumb. However, I have managed to keep several big pots of aloe, ivy and few more that I don’t know the name of alive for several years wintering in the garage so I guess that counts for something. Now hubby has an amazing green thumb and can grow some of the most amazingly delicious veggies. My participation is picking and cooking. 🙂
Can’t wait to read “Natural Thorn Killer” by Kate Dyer-Seeley. Thanks for the chance to win a copy!
I have not met a plant I could not kill 🙂
I can grow plants but coming up with clever titles for Cozies is HARD WORK!!
I can do neither. LOL
I can grow plants outside if they don’t require a lot of pampering. I used to be able to grow house plants until I got my kitten, Hamilton. He decided he would take care of them for me, which pretty much destroyed them. Now my sister is nursing them back to health.
Uh oh. Lol!
Thanks so much for sharing! Here’s to wine and roses!
No I have never had a green thumb. well every once in a blue moon I get something to grow for more than a month. than it is a huge celebration. LOL
LOL! I feel your pain, Lori.
