Floral Depravity (Bridal Bouquet Shop Mystery #3) by Beverly Allen
Audrey Bloom has been working hard on her business, trying to keep it prospering, especially as her cousin and business partner’s Olivia’s due date is drawing closer and closer.
So why would Audrey take on a huge job for a medieval themed wedding, especially as she doesn’t know very much about Medieval customs?
But whether she has a lack or not, Audrey is committed. But not as much as the bridal party and guests. The bride is a Medieval Reenactor, part of the SCA, and wants as true as can be medieval wedding. Everyone is out in the middle of nowhere and as accurate as possible.
However, shortly after the wedding is done, the bride’s father is found dead! Being a man that is not very well-liked, possible suspects are everywhere.
Audrey finds herself deputized by the sheriff and on the case to discover who hated him the most.
But while questioning the wedding party, she discovers a most unexpected guest! Her estranged father! It appears there is much more to this case than originally thought.
Thoughts After Reading:
While I originally loved the other books, this one was not as great. I figured out who the murderer was immediately and thought the rest of the novel wasn’t very well constructed.
However, I hope that will be remedied in the next book and look forward to it.
