Who could object to a flower festival? Britta Johnston and her aunt Elin are delighted that their Portland floral boutique is part of the city’s Rose Festival, which draws thousands to the Pacific Northwest for dragon boat races, fireworks, and other attractions—capped off by a big parade. They’re building a float that’s sure to rock the judge’s boat . . . until a gang of angry protestors shows up. The group, who call themselves Dark Fusion, are decidedly not into flower power, and they want to take down the system . . . including the upcoming extravaganza. Then their leader is strangled with a garland of violets—and Britta finds the body. With tensions running high and so much at stake, there are plenty of suspects, from the Grand Marshal to a longtime volunteer to a former Rose Queen. But before Britta and Elin can stem the violence, the case is going to get even more explosive . . .

About the Author

 Kate Dyer-Seeley aka Ellie Alexander writes multiple mystery series, all with a Pacific Northwest touch. She lives in the PNW with her husband and son, where you can find her hitting the trail, at an artisan coffee shop, or at her favorite pub. Better yet—at all three.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
If you don't love flowers before reading this book you definitely will by the time you are done. We get the the loveliest flower descriptions ever in these stories thanks to love of flowers from the main character Britta who runs a flower shop with her Aunt. The serene city of Portland is gearing up for its annual Rose parade and I will as not there is all kinds of things going on behind the scenes as the floats are built. The design give some awesome visuals that flow smoothly with the story. Add in a murder and the story really gets good. Nice mix of flower history, detials, whimsy, and intrigue. I learn something new in each I installment and am looking forward to book three. Great for fans of cozies and flowers. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.

  2. Visiting a flower festival would be fun. Without the murder of course.

  3. This is a new series to me. I like the flower festival storyline and I'm looking forward to reading the books.
