Abby Knight discovers that sometimes death can be a little fun in the sixth Flower Shop Mystery...

Abby is amused by the black humor of the usually somber "death professionals" who are attending the Midwestern Funeral Directors Association's regional convention. Even organizer Sybil Blount--known for her cutthroat business practices and the signature rose she wears in her wig--comes as a surprise...especially when her corpse is found in a closed casket. When Abby's friend Delilah Dove is accused of the crime, Abby shifts into full investigation mode and learns that Sybil's enemies included the prankster sons of a big-time funeral director, an eco-friendly purveyor of "green burials," and a strange Goth girl who captures the "music" of departing souls on her tape recorder. It's up to Abby and her P.I. boyfriend, Marco, to look beyond the trappings of death and find out who really loved Sybil--and who loved her not.

I thought this was a silly book. Any story line was hidden behind her constant descriptions of her boy friend, Marco. This constant drooling takes away from the story. Sorry.

Definatally one of the best mystery books I ever read. Once I started I couldn't stop. Can't wait to read the other books in the series. Kate Collins is now one of my favorite authors, I totally recommend it!!!
