Read Sample

It's October on Orcas Island, and the residents of Turtle Cove, Washington, revel in the cool weather and beautiful autumn colors as they gear up for the community's fall festivities. Kaylee Bleu, owner of The Flower Patch, is already busy as a bee, so when her only employee takes some time off, she enlists the help of her friend Amanda Denman. Kaylee recently encouraged Amanda and her daughter to move to the island, and she even helped Amanda land a job at the jewelry store in town.

Mother and daughter seem to be enjoying their new home . . . until Amanda is arrested.

Several necklaces and rings were stolen from the jewelry store, and the police discover one of the necklaces hidden in Amanda's house. It appears to be an open-and-shut case, but Amanda insists the jewelry was planted.

Kaylee and her friends in the Petal Pushers garden club set out to clear Amanda's name, but the task is no bed of roses. As they dig deeper, they face threats, and Kaylee must cope with a childhood trauma she thought had been buried long ago. The list of suspects continues to grow, and it'll take all their sleuthing skills to root out the thief. Will Kaylee and her friends hit pay dirt before Amanda is robbed of her freedom?

The Characters

At 40, Kaylee's life is about to change in a really big way.

When her job at the university is suddenly eliminated, Kaylee is left feeling lost. Yet it couldn't have happened at a better time.

A fortuitous phone call sets an exciting new course for Kaylee. She packs up her life and moves to take ownership of her grandparents' grand Victorian mansion flower shop and charming Wildflower Cottage, both in Turtle Cove, Wash., on gorgeous Orcas Island.

Of course, Grandpa Ed has been gone for years and while Kaylee feels the pang of missing him, she eagerly accepts her beautiful new surroundings to begin a brand-new chapter in her life.

Then Kaylee discovers that not everything in Turtle Cove is coming up roses. Will the cryptic clues in her grandfather's journal lead her to the truth about what really happened to him years ago -- and straight into the path of a killer?

Mary works part-time at The Flower Patch and welcomes Kaylee to Turtle Cove with open arms. As a retired police dispatcher, she has contacts with the local authorities -- connections that come in handy when she's helping Kaylee solve mysteries!

Jessica is the spunky owner of the Death by Chocolate bakery and coffee shop and Kaylee's best friend. She's energetic, funny and can't resist a good mystery. A petite woman with a big smile, she always has a handle on the local scoop, as well as a good conspiracy theory to share.

When Kaylee adopted Bear from a local shelter, it was love at first sight. Cute, curious and well-mannered, this lovable dachshund is Kaylee's constant companion, escorting her to the flower shop every day. His inquisitive nature might just land him in the middle of a mystery or two.
