Publisher's Summary

Petals and Poison is the second in a colorful cozy mystery series from Jess Dylan, set in a flower shop with a knack for attracting trouble as well as customers....  

“Like her protagonist Sierra, Jess Dylan has manifested a charming cozy with humor, folksy dialogue, Southern charm, and a page-turning mystery.” (Peg Cochran, USA Today best-selling author)  

Sierra Ravenswood has embraced her role as owner of Flower House floral shop and companion to her former boss' pet, Gus the Corgi. Sierra’s team members are enjoying their new jobs too. At least until everyone realizes their lack of experience might be contributing to their lack of customers....  

Sierra decides they need a change in luck, so she creates a special window display featuring lucky bamboo and auspicious flowers. It seems the new arrangement has worked when the shop is flooded with customers the next day, including a van full of college students on a horticulture club field trip. Unfortunately, Sierra doesn't notice that the students’ distracted professor has gone missing until Gus's urgent barking leads her to the storeroom - and the body of the unfortunate professor.  

With folks now referring to Flower House as “Poison House” and suspects galore, Sierra fears her new business is doomed before it has a chance to get off the ground. Determined to reverse course and see justice served, she sets out to solve the crime and change her luck once more.  

The Flower House is no place for shrinking violets.

Fun Cozy Mystery

The second installment of the Flower House cozy mystery series finds a van full of botany students unexpectedly turning up at the shop. What should have been a bit of good luck turns sour when their professor is found murdered in the backroom. When her friend and tenant is named as a suspect, Sierra sets out to discover the truth.

I believe that I enjoyed this book even more than it's predecessor. The mystery was engaging and kept me guessing. The subplots were interesting and complimented the mystery well. I also appreciated the further development of the main characters.

I'm looking forward to the next installment of the series.
