I will never eat cake again. This is a vow that I can keep. Unlike my wedding vows that I will never have a chance to uphold or say because I'm not getting married--maybe ever. I'm certainly not marrying Ethan Easton, the next big thing in country music--or so I've been told he would be, more times than I cared to count.
Friday 56:
I didn't know what I'd been thinking when I'd agreed to take Alastair's cat off Cally's hands. He seemed to be a very sweet animal, but I wasn't in a place where I could take care of a cat. I wasn't in a place where I could take care of anyone, including myself.
This week I am reading Flowers and Foul Play by Amanda Flower. I got this eARC from NetGalley. Here is the description from Amazon:
Fiona Knox lost her fiancé and her flower shop―but when she flies to Scotland to inherit her godfather’s cottage and possibly magical walled garden, she may lose her life as well when she’s swept into a murder investigation.

Florist Fiona Knox’s life isn’t smelling so sweet these days. Her fiancé left her for their cake decorator. Then, her flower shop wilted after a chain florist opened next door. So when her godfather, Ian MacCallister, leaves her a cottage in Scotland, Fiona jumps on the next plane to Edinburgh. Ian, after all, is the one who taught her to love flowers. But when Ian’s elderly caretaker Hamish MacGregor shows her to the cottage upon her arrival, she finds the once resplendent grounds of Duncreigan in a dreadful shambles―with a dead body in the garden.

Minutes into her arrival, Fiona is already being questioned by the handsome Chief Inspector Neil Craig and getting her passport seized. But it’s Craig’s fixation on Uncle Ian’s loyal caretaker, Hamish, as a prime suspect, that really makes her worried. As Fiona strolls the town, she quickly realizes there are a whole bouquet of suspects much more likely to have killed Alastair Croft, the dead lawyer who seems to have had more enemies than friends.

Now it’s up to Fiona to clear Hamish’s name before it’s too late in Flowers and Foul Play, USA Today bestselling author Amanda Flower’s spellbinding first Magic Garden mystery.

  11. I've had Amanda Flowers on my must read list for ages but this one sounds amazing! I love the teasers and I really need someone to leave me a cottage in Scotland - though I'd prefer less murders!
