Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Seed No Evil (Flower Shop Mystery Series #14)  

 

Seed No Evil 
(Flower Shop Mysteries, No. 14)

 

August 6, 2013 | Penguin Group | ISBN-13: 978-0451415493

It’s finally time to say, “I do!” As long as I can keep my mom
out of jail long enough to get her to the ceremony....


 

Someone’s Biting Mad.


Abby Knight’s wedding is in less than two weeks, and everything is going wrong. The cooler in her flower shop is leaking, her neck has swollen to unnatural proportions, her groom is acting distant, and she still doesn’t know where she’s actually getting married!

But things go from bad to worse when the director of her favorite charity, Protecting Animal Rights, is murdered, and Abby’s mother becomes the main suspect. Abby’s wedding worries will have to wait until she—along with her fiance, Marco, and an adorable mutt named Seedy—can nose out who wanted the animal activist put to sleep. But they’ll have to sort through the long list of suspects quickly, or her mom may be tossed in the slammer before Abby tosses the bouquet....

You had sent me one of the books in this series, Becke, and I read it some time ago.  Fun!

 

I don't know it it's ok to mention this here, but this series is one of the featured ones for the Cozy Mystery Corner group on Goodreads this month, and Kate Collins will be visiting the discussion:

I think it's okay to mention Goodreads because, unless I'm mistaken, they don't actually sell books.

I think I have a couple of Flower Shop mysteries in my pile of books. I haven't read them yet though.
