 You don't have to have a green thumb to enjoy For Whom the Bluebell Tolls. It's up to you to dig up the clues and suspects and there are many that abound to be unearthed in this cozy mystery. Audrey Bloom is the owner of Rose in Bloom, A Bridal Bouquet Shop in Ramble,Virginia and a wedding themed reality show is in town called, Fix My Wedding to film a show. To make matters complicated Audrey's ex Brad works with the show and volunteers Rose in Bloom to do the flowers for the wedding.

Thinking that doing the flowers for Fix my Wedding, will bring the shop publicity Audrey agrees to do it. 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.

Audrey must try to let the police handle this one but wants to clear her ex's name when he becomes a number one suspect and she just can't stand by and watch. 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.
