The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and through much of the book, I felt like I was right there in Portland being part of the community.
~MJB Reviewers

This book is a pleasant combination of personality, flower details, murder clues, and more all placed in an eclectic small town to give it a nice flair.
~Books a Plenty Book Review

The description that the author gives about the area had me wanting to pack up and move there myself. . . The intricate knowledge of flowers really highlighted the story for me.
~Texas Book-aholic

Natural Thorn Killer was a well-written and entertaining read, giving me insight into the magical world of floristry, which has brought this great mystery to life.
~Moonlight Rendezvous

With attention to detail, well-developed characterization, and a captivating plot NATURAL THORN KILLER is a winner.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

All of the characters we met within this story were pretty fleshed out for the first book in a series. They were very engaging and relatable. They are characters I want to get to know more about and the relationships they build together.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

I was immediately sucked into the book and the characters and the setting.
~The Montana Bookaholic

I thought the plot was well thought out and the story flowed very well. I was left guessing until the very end of this one, which is what I like in a cozy mystery.

Cut down among the flowers . . .

Britta Johnston might be a late bloomer, but after leaving her deadbeat husband and dead-end job, she’s finally pursuing her artistic passion at her aunt Elin’s floral boutique, Blooma, in Portland, Oregon. It’s on the banks of the Willamette, in a quaint district of cobblestone paths and cherry trees. The wine bar featuring Pacific Northwest vintages is a tasty bonus, offering another kind of bouquet to enjoy. But things aren’t as peaceful as they look.

For one thing, someone’s been leaving dead roses around—and a sleazy real estate developer who wants the waterfront property has put a big-money offer on the table. Then, after a contentious meeting of local business owners, he’s found on the floor of the shop, with Elin’s garden shears planted in his chest. And before the police decide to pin the crime on her beloved aunt, Britta will have to find out who arranged this murder . . .
