The Final Arrangement The Vulture is dead. The body of Quincy McKay's nemesis and biggest competitor in the floral business has just been discovered in a casket at the mortuary, complete with flowers on the lid. Derrick Gibbons, aka The Vulture, stole all of Quincy's funeral business, and now she's on a mission to get it back. But there's a problem--Quincy is now the main suspect in The Vulture's murder. Armed with only her Zombie delivery van, good intentions, and the business card of a handsome cop named Alex, she must find the killer, save the flower shop, and keep from ending up in the next casket. If she can dodge burning bushes, the plague of a polygamist ex, and her mother's Mormon Mafia Spy Network, her life with Alex and her shop could become the perfect arrangement. Deadly Arrangements All florist Quincy McKay wants is success in business, a happy family and the perfect romance with Alex Cooper, the hottest cop in the state. Not necessarily in that order, of course. Is that so much to ask? The trouble is, between Alex’s job and planning weddings, it’s getting harder and harder for Quincy and Alex to find any time to themselves. Every time the flames of passion ignite between them, someone or something shows up to fizzle the fire, including her meddling mother, her formerly absent father and even Elma, the handsiest waitress in the West. Wedded bliss is contagious in small town Hillside. Should be great news for Quincy, except that one groom is missing and another is the prime suspect. Hard for a florist to make a living that way, and even harder for her to stay out of the investigation, especially when the suspect is her sidekick, K.C.’s fiancé. Just when she thinks nothing else could go wrong, a ghost from Alex’s past comes back to haunt them both, which could keep them apart forever, if someone doesn’t kill Quincy first. She’s stumbled into the clues to solve the case of the missing groom and finds a corpse as well, proving that planning a wedding can literally be murder. A Christmas Arrangement It's Christmastime in Hillside, but there's a lack of holiday spirit for flower shop owner Quincy McKay. She's in charge of the town festival and her shop's open house, but her Santa's a no-show and her flower cooler is on the fritz. To make matters worse, she's learned her ex-husband isn't as ex as she'd thought. Just when she thought things couldn't get any worse, her boyfriend, hot cop Alex Cooper announces his parents are coming to town. Alex Cooper is the perfect man in Quincy's book, but unfortunately his mother thinks so too. And no woman is perfect enough for her perfect son, but especially not the weird flower shop girl who works too much, can't cook and who she catches kissing another man in the department store. And what's this she hears about Quincy being married? Eleanor Cooper must help her son dodge a bullet (and not the kind from his job) during the romantic holiday season to prevent him from being ensnared in a regrettable relationship. Quincy's dignity (of which lately she's in short supply), her reputation, and every business in town are riding upon the success of the city's Christmas celebration. If she can figure out a way to make it work despite failing equipment, helpers dropping out of the picture as fast as snowflakes in a blizzard, a troubling and inappropriate Secret Santa, and the possibility of arrest, she might win the respect of everyone in the town, but more importantly, Alex's parents.

    first two are great, third is cute but not a mystery I'm a bit disappointed in the third story. Don't get me wrong it's a cute story but it reads more like a romantic comedy rather than a mystery. Actually there is no mystery at all unless you want to include the identity of the secret Santa as one. I don't. I really liked the first book in the series and even enjoyed the second one but this one really seemed to ever of course.

I really liked the first book in the series and even enjoyed the second one but this one really seemed to ever of course. It was nice to see familiar characters and see Quincy's & Alex's relationship progress and all the hilariously embarrassing moments but without any mystery it just fell flat for me. I came for a mystery and only got rom-com. The first and second books are good murder mystery with a healthy dose of comedy and a little romance. For some reason the third story fell of the rails and delivers absolutely no mystery and is all romantic comedy. All the stories are cute and entertaining but the third story fell flat because I kept waiting for the mystery and there just wasn't one.

    This set of three books was interesting and unusual, since the main character, Quincy, is both a divorcee and a Mormon. She calls herself a "jack Mormon," as she does not practice everything that a more strict Mormon would. She doesn't attend any of the many ward events, or even attend temple services regularly, and she drinks coke, something strict Mormons would never do. She runs her Aunt Rosie's flower shop and is struggling to meet expenses, since a competitor has taken over all of the fune This set of three books was interesting and unusual, since the main character, Quincy, is both a divorcee and a Mormon. She calls herself a "jack Mormon," as she does not practice everything that a more strict Mormon would. She doesn't attend any of the many ward events, or even attend temple services regularly, and she drinks coke, something strict Mormons would never do. She runs her Aunt Rosie's flower shop and is struggling to meet expenses, since a competitor has taken over all of the funeral business in her small town. She has also sworn off men, since her husband abused her. On the other hand as strange events occur around her business she makes the acquaintance of Alex, a policeman handsome policeman with "chocolate drop eyes." She tries to avoid his appeal, but is unable to do so. In the second book, she is again involved in a strange series of events that involves the death of a good friend of her delivery driver and her fiancee. She and Alex have many suspects, but are not close to solving the murder. The main suspect disappears and is believed to have been taking bribes. He does return and this ends with the arrest of the last person to be suspected. The third and shortest book takes place around Christmas and the problems Quincy has in arranging the annual Christmas tour. Alex, is not a policeman in their local town, but is investigating criminal charges of another member of the local police. Also, Quincy meets Alex's parents and that causes more issues with their off-again, on-again romance.

    This boxed set by Annie Adams was entertaining, although in some places it did feel as if the 'quirkiness' of the characters was being hammered home a little to hard. I liked the main character, Quincy, but there were some times when I wanted to smack her around a little bit because she became overly frustrating. This boxed set includes three books, with the third one, centered around Christmas, being the weakest in regard to storyline.

I liked the main character, Quincy, but there were some times when I wanted to smack her around a little bit because she became overly frustrating. This boxed set includes three books, with the third one, centered around Christmas, being the weakest in regard to storyline. The characters were numerous, and in that regard it was sometimes a little hard to keep up with who was who, especially in the first book when we're meeting the characters all at the same time. I found by the third book it was less difficult to keep up with. Overall, an enjoyable read, although certainly not something which will stretch the little gray cells overtly. There are some typos in the third book, but I didn't see much wrong in the first two. I would consider reading more from this author.

One local florist seemed to be the one being targeted as the murderer, although she had no knowledge of the incident, except for local florist gossip. I did say madcap, and it still leaves you in the air, even at the very end. #2 Deadly Arrangement Again another madcap adventure, with lots of cow manure and slim thrown in.

A kidnapping, murder and illegal waste dumping are just some of the reasons this is an involved and intriguing tale. #3 A Christmas Arrangement Christmas is a hectic season, especially for those in the florist industry. There's shenanigans galore in this episode, but thankfully no one dies. Just ensure you read it on your own, as I am sure there will laughter that will be hard to suppress, in some points in the story.

    Wonderful! These three cozy mysteries are some of the most enjoyable books I've read. The heroine is a florist who manages to solve mysteries while getting into the most amazing predicaments, alone or with her friends. Add her gorgeous policeman boyfriend, and follow Quincy as she mops up the bad guys. These books are well written, with good plots, and hilarious complications. I can't wait to read more! Wonderful!

    Misadventures and Dis-arrangements. The three books of the Flower Shop Mysteries started off with book 1 being good, book 2 was even better; then book 3 tied it all up hilariously. This was a really fun series to read and the characters were absolutely perfect. I highly recommend the series, but read them in order for the complete story.

    A fun set of stories revolving around a woman who seems accident prone which I can relate to. It wasn’t your normal cozy mystery stuff but had most of the ingredients. The third story is more of a short Christmas novella and so the mystery isn’t really part of it but cute to read in August and think of all the cozy Christmas stuff.

    I picked this set at random out of the 300 pages of Kindle content I've accumulated over the years. The first story seemed familiar, but ...... I think I've read it before. At least the first, and probably the second volume. As I started the second today, I realized if I've read it before and found it so forgettable, there are other books to be read.

    This was a fun set of books to read. I enjoyed all three. I read number two before I knew there was a set of three but reading them out of order didn't spoil anything for me. They were separate mysteries even though the characters wove through all three. This was a fun set of books to read. I enjoyed all three.

    Movie script turned novel? This book read like a movie script turned into a novel. There just was not enough plot and character depth to make it believable. I'm disappointed because I enjoy cozy mysteries as a rule. Movie script turned novel? This book read like a movie script turned into a novel.

    Just needed something that was fast & fun. This was just the ticket ... predictable story line, at times a bit unbelievable, kind of like the characters ... you do get to know them ... at least the recurring ones. But when I'm in a who cares mood, this is my pick. Just needed something that was fast & fun.

    Funny... It was such a joy to find this author. I smiled most of the way through the three books in this collection. The last book was especially fulfilling since three wasn't a dead body lying (or is it lagging?) around. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. Funny... It was such a joy to find this author.
