Quincy McCay is running her flower shop with the help of her driver, Karma Clackerton (I just love the names that cozy mystery writers bestow on their characters), better known as K.C. After a bad marriage left her floundering, her Aunt Rosie decided to travel the world and left her flower shop to Quincy. The book begins with preparations for K.C.'s upcoming wedding, and I laughed when Quincy got trapped in the "special" underwear the attendant gave her to better fit into her bridesmaids dress.
We quickly learn about her hunky boyfriend when Quincy's mother and sister start teasing her about him. The romance part got a little silly though. The "should we" "shouldn't we" sex discussions seem better suited for a teenager then a divorced woman, but I find that these types of books do tend to exaggerate their characters' personalities at times. Speaking of which I did smile at the actions of the overbearing mother and teasing sister throughout the book.
The mystery dealt with kidnapped and missing grooms, a murder and weird happenings that Quincy felt compelled to solve. Working with her friends and family, she gets herself deeper involved in the case and puts her own life at risk. The ending wasn't perfect...I thought there were too many loose ends...but if you are a fan of these types of books, this is a quick and enjoyable read.
