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.

    This is such a great series and I'm so glad that it is long running, because when I get tied into characters I don't like to see a series end. This is such a great series and I'm so glad that it is long running, because when I get tied into characters I don't like to see a series end.

    Abby finds herself promoting the flower shop at a convention for funeral directors. The usually conservative professionals partake in some interesting competitions including casket decorating and casket racing. The convention organizer Sybil Blount seems to be a multi-faceted woman. She is a tough business-woman and a cougar. After she is found dead in a closed coffin Abby attempts to determine if either of those attributes has contributed to her death.

The usually conservative professionals partake in some interesting competitions including casket decorating and casket racing. The convention organizer Sybil Blount seems to be a multi-faceted woman. She is a tough business-woman and a cougar. After she is found dead in a closed coffin Abby attempts to determine if either of those attributes has contributed to her death. When her friend Delilah is accused of murdering Sybil, Abby works even harder to find the murderer. Abby has her own prime suspect (s), but the list of potential killers is a bit long and the convention is ending soon. She must work quickly before the suspects all leave town. The romance of Abby and Marco is in full-swing in the latest flower-shop mystery. The two are busy at the convention, and with the help of Lottie and Grace the group promotes the flower shop and investigates the murder. I feel like the plot in this series moves a bit slower than others I have read. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, it just takes longer to read the books. The characters are well-developed and relatable. This story, like the previous books, contain a touch of humor. I recommend this book. It can stand alone, but I am a firm believer in reading a series in order. The story arc is an important part of the action. I already have the next book and I look forward to reading it.

    A waste of time; there are far better amateur detective novels out there. As a fan of this genre, all I was looking for in this book is a bit of light fun, an interesting case, and engaging characters. This book failed to deliver on all points. Abby Knight is the typical stubborn heroine with a supposed knack for solving mysteries. She's also very pretty, and has a tall, dark, hunky boyfriend (we're told this repeatedly).

As a fan of this genre, all I was looking for in this book is a bit of light fun, an interesting case, and engaging characters. This book failed to deliver on all points. Abby Knight is the typical stubborn heroine with a supposed knack for solving mysteries. She's also very pretty, and has a tall, dark, hunky boyfriend (we're told this repeatedly). The above is probably standard for these amateur detective/light romance novels, and while I've liked many a similar heroine in the past, I found myself taking an instant dislike to Abby. Instead of being smart, tough, or simply with a talent for getting herself into the right positions and discovering the right clues, Abby stumbles from scene to scene. The "stubborn as a mule" characteristic isn't cute or at all admirable here. Because the Urban brothers pranked her at the beginning, she is instantly biased against them and pretty much decides, with no basis, that they ARE the murderers of Sybil Blount. She stubbornly ignores the possibility that it might have been someone else, and twists whatever leads she finds to fit her preferred suspects. This doesn't just apply to the Urbans, but also to Eli Cotton, her friend Delilah, and so on. Abby repeatedly forms certain opinions, and then insists on them, and says it's "instinct." I felt like smacking her upside the head. Marco, the hot, hunky boyfriend, is pretty 2D. He's there to make Abby Knight an enviable heroine (she has a hot boyfriend, she's pretty, has a decent job, etc.) and to fish her out of hot water. By the time I reached the end of the book, I lost count of how many times Collins described how seriously hot, hunky and Italian-American he is, plus how much they have the hots for each other and wish to get horizontal. We get the point! The case is flimsy at best, and the "leads" are just thrown in to make the reader feel like the leads are getting somewhere with solving it. It's all entirely too convenient. Abby and Marco finds tapes that the police missed, they get witness statements that the police haven't even heard of, their friends manage to unearth people's secrets that miraculously form the backdrop to the murder. The whole story is conveniently constructed thus, with no real deductive work (not correctly, anyway) done by Abby, and yet she still manages to stumble onto the truth at the end. The story and the murderer is handed to her on a silver plate, with no reasoning whatsoever. It was a tiring book to read, and I regret not dropping it when I found the writing clunky and overdescriptive at the beginning. Fans of the amateur detective genre who would like to read about intelligent heroines and equally hunky boyfriends that aren't described a million times throughout the course of the book should perhaps consider work by Heather Webber, Victoria Laurie, Laura Durham, and a number of others. It'll definitely be better than this.

    I liked Abby Knight a bit better in this one but I didn't enjoy the mystery as much. I'll give this 3.5 for the character development and for the fact that I couldn't figure out who'd done it until the very end. I the first book Mum's the Word I had it practically all figured out before Abby, as I mentioned in that review. I liked Abby Knight a bit better in this one but I didn't enjoy the mystery as much.

    With a more obnoxious main character and a shaky mystery A Rose from the Dead was probably the worst book in this series yet. As I said above the MC, Abby was very obnoxious in this book.

Marco, also, in this book made a few unwise of blatantly obvious wrong choices in this book. However, most of the minor characters were their normal selves, Grace, Lottie, Reilly, and Nikki were all the normal fun characters they've always been. The mystery was flimsy at best, the killer was portrayed early on and the last "suspenseful" scene was faintly reminiscent of the final scene in the last book in this series, Acts of Violets. Overall probably the worst book so far in the series, but I'll read the next one because the ones before this were very entertaining.

In this book Abby and Marco investigate a murder at a mortuary convention to clear the name of their friend Delilah Dove. I this book Abby and Marco work more as a team than they have in the past. It does have a humorous side story with Abby's mother sculpting something for Marco's sister's baby shower.

    I was warned about this book and have to concur with the warning. Everyone in this book just seemed so out of character - especially Marco. I have heard the series gets back on track after this one so I will definitely continue with it since I have grown to really like the series as a whole.

    This might be the first book in this series in which I found Abby Knight annoying rather than endearing. She was mean to one of her coworkers, more stubborn than usual, and she seemed dead-set on believing certain individuals were responsible for a crime that she refused to see reality. Also, the story takes place (mostly) away from Abby's flower shop, so the normal ambiance was missing. I hope the next installment in the series is back to the normal routine.

A dead body is found and one of her dearest friends & very much respected funeral director is the prime suspect and Abby is determined to clear her name. Abby begins to learn the ropes of the PI business. It's another fabulous and adorable read. I can never put it down.

    This was easily my favorite book of the series so far! The change in scenery was interesting, the characters were compelling, and the subject matter was unique. We saw our usual characters along with some really interesting funeral directors and funeral business people. Turns out they’re quite the rowdy crowd! Some of Collins’s books drag a bit in some places but this one was non-stop action, probably because it took place over what I think was only 2 days.

    This is the second Flower Shop mystery I’ve read, I really like them. Abby is set up at a convention for funeral directors. She get locked in a phone booth coffin, has to listen to a weird harp-player across the aisle, and of course, there’s a murder. There were laugh-out-loud funny antics, and an attempt on her life when she gets too close. All in all, a good story.

    Perfect title! A really unique venue for the Bloomers crew, a lot of shenanigans and a host of trouble. Abby and Marco are trying to find out who killed Sybil, to clear Delilah from being accused. A whole lotta 'lively' characters with a bunch of dead-ends, make this for a humdinger of a whodunit!

This time she is at a Funeral Directors Association convention hoping to make a few sales of her funeral arrangements and wreaths. However she gets more than she bargains for when the President of the Association is found dead - in a casket! It's up to Abby and sexy boyfriend, Marcus, to prove that their friend, Deliah, didn't kill Sybil and solve the murder case. I've loved this series since the first book, Mum's the Word. I've gotten to know Abby, her staff at the flower shop (Lottie and Grace) and of course the sexy Marcus, who owns the bar, Down the Hatch. While the mysteries are always interesting, I love having watched Abby grow and develop over the books. It's almost like watching a child grow up - as she has embraced owning her own business, her relationship with Marcus and her evolving friendship with Lottie and Grace. In A Rose From the Dead Abby faces some jealousy issues. She's worried that Grace will solve the mystery before her and she has to face these issues and deal with them. This is what I love about the Flower Shop Mysteries. They are real people, that change and grow and even if murder is involved, they are put in real situations. Okay well somewhat real situations, because frankly I don't want to end up suffocating in a casket! A lot of the book took place away from Bloomers, Abby's flower shop, but the scenes at the convention were deathly funny! I never knew a Funeral Association convention could be funny... I especially loved the concept behind the casket races. The sixth book in this series is as good as the previous instalments and I will be continuing on with the series. I plan to "try" and catch up in time for the new release (Seed No Evil), which hits the shelves this month.

The police suspect Abby's friend Delilah Dove committed the murder but Abby doesn't believe it and thinks she knows who the real murderer is. The convention will soon be over and Abby and her boyfriend Marco only have a few hours to solve the mystery or a killer will go free. "A Rose from the Dead" is another good entry in Kate Collins delightful flower shop cozy mystery series. Abby is a good heroine, a bit more confident now as a business owner and with a penchant for getting a little too involved in solving the mysteries and putting herself in danger. All the favorite characters are here in this book - the sometimes-enigmatic Marco; Abby's helpers in the shop, Lottie and Grace; and police sergeant Sean Reilly. Abby's roommate Nikki isn't in the book that much which is a shame and Abby's mother is also missing for much of the book, but her latest artistic endeavor, a baby gift, is laugh out loud funny. In fact, there is a nice sense of humor throughout the book that makes it even more enjoyable to read. The mystery aspects of the book are well done. Giving Abby a short period of time to solve the mystery is a nice touch as it gives a bit of tension to the book. The mystery is well plotted with plenty of suspects although I was able to figure out who the killer was because of what I thought was an obvious clue. Still, it was a fun book to read. "A Rose from the Dead" is a nicely done cozy mystery.

The story takes place in the span of two days, during the convention. The supporting characters make minor appearances in this novel, while the plot centers around Abby and Marco trying to solve the mystery. While this is my least favorite in the series so far, I am still looking forward to reading books 7 and 8.

    This is the 6th in a series about Abbey Knight, a florist in New Chapel IN. She solves murders on the side, mostly by stumbling upon the killer and getting herself into hot water as well. I don't remember the time frame of the previous 5 books, but this one took place over 48 hours at a convention for morticians. Abbey is there to drum up business for her florist shop.

    I didn't have the will to write another tedious review, but then I thought that if Kate Collins can have the bravado to churn out such a soulless book and charge people for it, then I can write a review that tries to deter people from reading her book.
