Teaser Tuesday 72: Slay it With Flowers

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current book or recent read.
* Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere in the book.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!


This is from early in the book finished Monday night. The heroine's mother does sculptures and is a rather avant-garde artiste, as demonstrated from the passage below, which has nothing to do with the central plot, but had me laughing out loud.


“VoilĂ !” My mother whipped off the sheet and there it was: a seven-foot, faux-pineapple-barked palm tree—and when I say palm, I don’t mean those beautiful fan-shaped green branches. I mean the inside of a green hand—or, in this case, many green hands—on the ends of many bark-coated, curving arms, complete with elbows, stretched out in three directions, front, right and left, as if begging for alms. (pg 34)






About the Book:
Slay It With Flowers (book 2)
By Kate Collins

NEAR MRS.

Abby's latest gig is the perfect marriage of her talents. Not only does her bride-to-be cousin, Jillian, want Abby to be a bridesmaid—she also wants her to sign on as floral designer and sleuth...

Though nearly once a year Jillian has agreed to marry a different man, she has yet to make it to the altar. But this time, it's cold dead feet that may stop the wedding. Before he couple says "I do," one of the groomsmen disappears and another member of the wedding party is found dead. Luckily for Abby, she has plenty of help—including her brassy been-there-done-that assistant, a hunky bar owner with a penchant for love and justice, and her own family. Together, they aim to unveil the truth...and make sure the bride still gets her day to shine.
