  From Amazon:

"Flower shop owner Abby Knight does not believe rumors that Vlad Serban, friend and employee of Abby's fiancé Marco, is a vampire. But how to explain that Vlad is from Romania, has prominent canines, likes bizarre plants such as bloodwort and Dracula orchid, and dresses entirely in black? 
When a local woman is found dead, her body drained of blood, the stakes become life and death. With Vlad the #1 suspect, Abby and Marco race to find the real killer, before Vlad's life really starts to suck. "

This is the 11th book in Kate Collins's flowershop series. I've read quite a few of these, reviewed  Dirty Rotten Tendrils,  and am always happy with the way Kate writes her mysteries; always well constructed and good pacing to the plot. Not to mention I am usually stumped by the mystery. Her characters are always well fleshed out  and believable. This one sounds a little different than her normal plot - a vampire character, no less. It'll be interesting to see how this one turns out.

Kate can be found at Cozy Chicks, her own webpage and at her face book page. Stop in at any of these sites and say hi!


  1. This one sounds more appealing to me than some of the vampire stories...

    Thanks for sharing.

    Here's MY WOW POST

  2. 11th? gosh that is a lot of books.

  3. This sounds like a fun vampire mystery. Great pick!

  4. My goodness, the 11th book already? :D That's fabulous! And it does sound like an intriguing mystery. I'll have to check it out, to the TBR list! Thanks for following and I'll be following right back! Happy reading! :)

  5. I've never read any of these books before. But they sound fun! I like the vampire element. I think I might check out the first book at the library! Thanks for sharing.

  6. A superb pick! It looks great. Happy Reading :)

  7. here's mine

  8. I like this series too! Looking forward to this one as well.

  9. I've never read any of these books but the cover kind of makes me that a cast on her foot?

  10. This book sounds really fun. I'll have to check it out. Thanks.

  11. This book sounds good. I bet it's funny.

    P.S. I'm your newest follower.

  12. I just finished reading books 3-4 in this series back-to-back, but though I have books 5-8 on the shelf, I need a short break for other reading before returning to Bloomers. Still missing books 9 and 10, too.

  13. 11? well that is a lot of books! Do I need to go back to the beginning or can I just pick up with this one. Sounds cute and cozy.

  14. You are such a bad influence on me...every time I stop by I need to add yet another book to my I MUST READ ONE DAY list!! :D

  15. This sounds like a fun read. I really don't read vampire books, so maybe it really isn't a vampire book, just we are lead to believe that maybe it is a vampire involved. I will wait for your review, in the meantime I will be setting on the fence for this one.
