Having read Big Flies by Keith Hirshland I was looking forward to reading The Flower Girl Murder.

Daisy Burns (the flower girl of the title) was a likable, devoted wife and mother who spent her spare time volunteering at school events – why would someone shoot her three times and dump her body behind a Planned Parenthood chapter in North Carolina? With no witnesses and few leads, Raleigh detective Marc Allen turns to the press for help—specifically, veteran news anchor Lancaster Heart. When Tanne

Although the flower girl (so-called because of her name Daisy, not because she sells flowers) murder is a theme throughout the book, much of the book is focused on personal relationships among the characters. There are many interconnections and a lot going on their lives, which keeps readers' attention.

The lack of scene breaks in the Kindle edition made it a little hard to follow because you would be reading about the detective in North Carolina, and the next paragraph you would be reading abou

The Flower Girl Murder by Keith Hirshland is another crime investigation. A murder that goes unsolved until a clue pops up...from there I was hooked. Not everything is what it appeared to be. A young woman who appears to be a decent woman is found dead. No clues as to why or who did it. Then, another body is found and the detective is racing to find out why and how they're connected. Two murder victims with an apparent opposite lifestyle are now dead. The race to find the killer is exciting. Cri ...more

The Flower Girl Murder wasn't what I expected. I have to be honest, I almost stopped reading it until a body was found next to a dumpster. I understand everyone is different when it comes to books. For me, that's when I got hooked in and didn't set the book down after that point. Overall a really good read!

I had to dig my teeth in the first pages but once I did I was on a twisty turning ride.
This one turned out to be worth the ride.
A fast paced story with great characters. Just the right amount of suspense and romance.
The plot had some twists making it entertaining. As the bodies begin piling up it's a race to solve the mystery.

I enjoyed reading The Flower Girl Murder. and look forward to reading more from this author

Keith Hirshland keeps getting better and better with every book! This is the third book of his that I have read, and I am grateful to him for sending me review copies! :)

This book has murder and a bit of romance. Just a bit. Just enough for someone like me who isn't into romance but likes a bit of it within the story.

There are many twists and turns in this book and you may or may not be satisfied with the ending, but I personally liked it.

I enjoyed the characters and story line, and look forward

Daisy Burns is you typical wife and mother that cared about her family and volunteered. Until her body is discovered with three bullet holes behind a Planned Parenthood in North Carolina. No clues are found so the police turn to the news to look for tips. An elderly woman thinks she recognizes Daisy. Then a gangster turns up killed in the same manor. How can these two be related?

I read Big Flies and I was very excited to read The Flower Girl Murder. I have to admit that I had a hard time getting
