Roses and Revenge is the 4th book in the Port Danby Series, and it is every bit as good as the first three, but this one had a little bit more angst in it as you will see!

Port Danby is getting ready for Valentine's Day, and as with all other holidays, the madness starts with it! It starts off Dash, Lacey's neighbor inviting her out for an airplane ride for later in the week in his friend's two seater aircraft!

So after where the last book left off mom was a little sad to see the relationship between Briggs and Pink did not pick back up exactly where it had left off, but they did make some great progress in the relationship that is was worth it.
First off it is getting close to Valentines day and hearing about the flower bouquets that Lacey and her assistant are make up is just plain fun. Secondly Lacey neighbor offers to take her on a plain ride. (A little tiny plain that he takes care of for a friend,

I'm really enjoying the Port Danby Cozy Mysteries. "Roses and Revenge" brings Lacey's past smack dab into the little seaside town. Her ex-fiance, Jacob Georgio has brought the faces of his ads into town to film some commercials for the cologne. Of course Lacey is taken by surprise when she comes face to face with her ex.

As the town prepares for hoopla surrounding Valentine's day, Lacey and Ryder are flooded with floral orders but that doesn't stop the million dollar nose from getting involved wh

Love these stories and watching the relationship building and sorting out between Lacey "Pink" Pinkerston and her neighbor Dash and the good-looking Detective Briggs. Dash and Briggs and old enemies and Lacey doesn't know why and she's not asking questions.
She is getting ready for Valentine's Day orders with her assistant Ryder, when an old friend from her former job, Hazel, drops in to tell her the perfume company is in town shooting a commercial at the old mansion and her ex-fiancee, Jacob the

The nose knows

Another terrific read. Okay the killer was obvious but the way she used her nose to dig deeper was brilliant. Just wish that there had been more about the very old old case in this book. When she is woken by trucks whizzing past her house she is intrigued especially once she finds out that member from her last job are in town. Including her ex-fiance. When the male model is murdered and her nose leads to her ex-fiance, she knows that there is something wrong with this picture. Can

This is the fourth book in the Port Danby Cozy Mystery series, and the books keep getting better. Part of that is the amazing cast of characters that continue to grow throughout each book.
In Roses and Revenge, we get to learn a little more about Pink’s life before she moved to Port Danby, when her ex-fiancé and old coworkers come to town for a photo shoot. Things get a little tense between Pink and Briggs when her ex becomes a murder suspect. On top of that, there is also a little sneak peak int

Good cozy mystery

I recently started reading this London Lovett series of mysteries, and I was hooked from the first one. The heroine is a transposed city girl who moved to the small town of Port Danby and opened a flower shop. She's made lots of friends, has two romantic interests, and a pet cat and pet crow. The mysteries are interesting, the pets add some fun, and Lacey loves helping the town detective solve cases by using her outstanding sense of smell. It may sound confusing, but the mysteri

Problems arise when Pink's previous employer and fiancee turn up, then when he's accused of murder Pink has to try and find the evidence to clear him, will Detective Briggs believe her when she says he didn't do it?

Set in Port Danby with its own haunted house where a grisly murder took place many years previously; Pink runs the local florist and helps the local Police Detective solve murders which keep happening in the town.

Roses and Revenge is the fourth installment in the Port Danby cozy mystery series by London Lovett. It is Valentine's Day in Port Danby, and Love Is in the air? The only bad news is that Lacey's ex Jacob is in Port dandy to do a photo shoot for his perfume company. Tensions fly in one of the models is murdered, and Jake becomes the prime suspect. I like this book as it was way for Lacey to get through with her issues with her cheating ex. ...more

Fun read.

I loved the plot, but did figure out the murderer before the ending. I wonder why almost all the characters have blue eyes? Still, these book are easy reads & entertaining when only a light hearted reading experience is called for.

The author could have 100% come up with a better reason for revenge in this novel. At first, I thought this book would be more intriguing than the others I have read, but I figured out the plot based on the first hint of a clue. Not a fun, and by far my least favorite book in this mediocre series.
