really liked it

In the second instalment of the Flower Shop Mystery series, Abby's cousin Jill is getting married (well, maybe - she gets engaged a LOT). And not only is Abby serving as the wedding florist, but she's a bridesmaid and seemingly the only sane bridesmaid, at that. But when one member of the bridal party is murdered and another member of the bridal party is arrested for the murder, Jill asks Abby to serve as the bridal investigator, as well. Soon, Abby has all kinds of suspects, most of them other members of the bridal party.

In the meantime, Abby becomes convinced that the new massage parlour in town is really just a front for an illegal prostitution ring. She conspires with the hair salon owner (conveniently located next door to the massage parlour) to investigate this, too. I'm not sure that Abby has the most common sense as she decides the best way to investigate is by taking pictures of the men (and their license plates) going into the parlor in broad daylight and without bothering to be behind any kind of cover.

Once again, she is helped by Marco, the owner of the bar down the street. And her disapproving employees are there along the way, too, reminding her that meddling can only lead to trouble. Which, of course, it inevitably does.

But Collins writes in a light, entertaining, breezy way, and this makes for a quick, fun read. Especially if you don't mind reading about frat boys named Punch and Bertie.
