Kate Collins Books Overview

Mum’s the Word

Abby Knight is the proud owner of her hometown flower shop, but a new low cost competitor is killing her profits and a black SUV just rammed her vintage Corvette in a hit and run. She’s determined to track down the driver, but when the trail turns deadly, the next flower arrangement might be for her own funeral.

Slay It with Flowers

Abby Knight’s latest gig is the perfect marriage of her talents. Not only does her bride to be cousin, Jillian, want Abby to be a bridesmaid, she also wants her to sign on as floral designer and sleuth. Although Jillian agrees to marry a different man nearly once a year, she has yet to make it to the altar. But this time, it’s cold dead feet that may stop the wedding. Available only in Mystery 4 & 5.

Dearly Depotted

It looks like Abby Knight’s cousin Jillian is heading for the altar again, and guess which bridesmaid is doing the flowers? It’s Abby law school dropout, owner of Bloomers, and ex fiancee to the best man! That’s a bumper crop of trouble, even before she finds a party crashing guest dead at the reception…
Available only in Mystery 3, 4 & 5.

Snipped in the Bud

When I swapped the thorny problems of law school for the budding business of my flower store, Bloomers, I vowed that I, Abby Knight, wouldn t be caught dead visiting that hateful campus ever again. But sometimes a girl’s got to face down her dragons…
. PLANT OF ATTACK Someone orders a black rose for Abby s old law school nemesis, Professor Snapdragon Puffer. But her plans for a speedy delivery are foiled when he catches her putting the bloom on his desk and sends it straight into the trash. Abby flees in terror, only to run smack into Carson Reed, the professor who recently had her arrested at an animal rights protest. After a biting exchange, Abby storms out of the building. But if there s anything she can t stand, it s injustice and bullies. So, even though she knows bad luck comes in threes, she ignores the advice of her sometimes boyfriend, hunk a licious Marco Salvare, and heads back in to retrieve her dignity and her flower only to find the rose now decorating a dead professor, and herself the prime suspect…
.

Acts of Violets

During the annual Pickle Fest, Abby’s boyfriend Marco inexplicably disappears for a day. When he returns, he’s the main suspect in the death of a clown. It seems the cops have found Snuggles pushing up water spurting daisies and Marco was the last person seen leaving Snuggles’s house. Although Marco is still a mystery to her, Abby knows he’s innocent. Now she has to find a way to prove it.

A Rose from the Dead

In New Chapel, Indiana, flower shop owner Abby Knight worries about her business failing. She needs new customers and knows that flowers and funerals go together like bacon and eggs. Thus she decides to open up a ‘tasteful’ floral booth at the Funeral Director Society’s annual convention.

On the down side, Abby will deal with some creepy souls who appreciate the DEARLY DEPOTTED as no one else can dig them. For instance, the Colonel who is president of the FDS is the self anointed Master Mortician who insists he knows everything there is in converting a corpse into a living tribute and is willing to tell anyone who is not afraid to ask him for a consultation. Then there is the environmental ground hugger Eli ‘Green Guy’ Cotton who believes Kermit is right that grieving relatives should send their loved ones off in green.

The lively gala turns morbid when cosmetician to the dead Sybil ‘the Diva of Death Masks’ Blount is killed. Unable to resist, Abby investigates who was drumming up business.

Shoots to Kill

Eight years ago, Abby Knight babysat for a problem teen named Elizabeth. Today, Elizabeth’s back, with a new name Libby and a whole new life stolen namely, one that already belongs to Abby. Libby s even trying to steal Abby s boyfriend, Marco. But imitation really becomes the sincerest form of trouble when Abby finds herself the accused dupe in a bizarre murder plot.

Evil in Carnations

The dating scene can be a killer…
Determined to help her roommate Nikki out of her singles slump, Abby Knight encourages her to give speed dating a try. Of course, Nikki wants the guy at the very bottom of Abby’s list, Jonas Treat a.k.a. Treat the Cheat and figures just one date with him couldn t hurt. But then Jonas is found dead and evidence points to Nikki as his killer. To clear Nikki s name, Abby enlists the help of her hunky ex Army Ranger boyfriend, Marco. But Marco s rambunctious extended family turns Abby s hectic life into a disaster zone. With her patience seriously wilting, and a killer on the loose, Abby is determined to dig herself out of this mess before someone buries her instead…

Sleeping with Anemone

Maybe Abby Knight shouldn’t have chosen a home and garden show sponsored by Uniworld Food as the venue for her protest against the corporation’s harmful farming practices. But being bodily removed from the event won’t stop her campaign. Nor will a burning brick thrown through her flower shop’s window. After she narrowly escapes being kidnapped three times, Abby calls in the big guns her ex Ranger boyfriend Marco and her friends and family. And then the stakes are raised by murder…

Dirty Rotten Tendrils

The newest Flower Shop mystery When high powered lawyer Ken ‘the Lip’ Lipinski is found dead from a suspicious overdose, florist and amateur sleuth Abby Knight finds it hard to swallow that his opposing counsel and her old boss is the murderer.
