This week's book is Bloom and Doom by Beverly Allen. I actually won the book in a contest back in April, but I'm finally now getting it read.
This is the first in a series centered around a florist who specializes in bridal bouquets and the language of the flowers she uses. Of course, it is a murder mystery series, so a dead body has to drop. So far, I'm really enjoying it.
The book begins with:
"White roses symbolize innocence."
And from page 56:
When I opened my apartment door, Chester flew out. At least I think that's what happened. All I saw was a streak of gray fur.
I'm about a quarter of the way through and hope to hit the half way point today.
