Another buddy read with my friend Kym :)
This book started out slow... I was having trouble with all the extra details that didn't really seem to matter to the story... However once past all that from the middle to the end was really very good! Had you guessing and really thinking how it would all come together...We clearly knew who the bad guys were, but not the how or whys till the very end.. :)
And this may seem silly to even mention, but I loved how Marco kept calling Abby "Sunshine" :) It was just so sweet.
Another part though that really annoyed me were her brothers names.. Their last name is Knight... Her brothers names were Jordan and Jonathan... I mean come on? Get original and not borrow the names of brothers in a long ago boy band lol ;)
Description from the publisher:
Abby Knight is the proud owner of her hometown flower shop, but a new low-cost competitor is killing her profits-and a black SUV just rammed her vintage Corvette in a hit-and-run. She's determined to track down the driver, but when the trail turns deadly, the next flower arrangement might be for her own funeral.
