Dearly Depotted – Kate Collins
It’s funny, I read this book years ago but when I saw they made a film adaptation I couldn’t remember what happens in the story. I read it again and none of it felt familiar. Such a shame, because it’s really a fun story.
It looks like Abby Knight’s cousin Jillian is heading for the altar again, and guess which bridesmaid is doing the flowers? Yes, it’s Abby – law school dropout, owner of Bloomers, and ex-fiancée to the best man! Abby has her hands full at the wedding, doing triple duty as florist, bridesmaid, and grandma-sitter, all while wearing a floral print that makes her look like a clown. But the real trouble starts when the groom’s ninety-year-old grandma disappears. While hunting for her, Abby discovers the body of Jack Snyder, one of the guests, behind the minister’s platform in the gazebo. When her assistant’s new boyfriend becomes a suspect, Abby decides she’d better find out who killed Jack in the pulpit.
