With the brides fascination with all things bells, It is ironic that the one of the shows host's, Gary is found hung from within the bell tower of the church while testing the church bell. It is soon discovered that Gary was murdered and mayhem ensues. Things start going wrong from the dress being tampered with and the flowers also.

So she takes it upon herself with the trusty help of her friends and fellow employees from Rose in Bloom. Audrey continues to wonder who within the cast and crew and who ever else can want to stop this wedding so badly that they would result to murder. Things are not coming up roses for whom ever it may be.
Riveting from the first page. . Audrey is a true rose among all the thorns of wacky,yet fun loving characters. Sweet smelling as a bouquet of bloom's. You will become a fan of this series from the get go. Many twists and turns and just when I thought I knew who the murderer was another suspect and clue would surface that have you hooked. An addicting series with engaging writing. A entertaining read.
