Cupid went a little too far this Valentines Day...

Rosie thought she'd left her dangerous life behind when she opened her flower shop. But Valentine's Day turns deadly when she finds Cupid's bow and a corpse while delivering roses. She just might have to dust ​off some of her old sleuthing skills to get out of this mess.

​And she'll have to decide what to do about the handsome detective who knows too much about her past.

Here we have the [proverbial] flower shop on Valentine’s Day – busy busy busy and then things go wrong. As a result of which Rosie finds herself embroiled in murder and sets out to try and find the murderer herself – to the frustration of the local police force – especially her boyfriend  – ex? still? –  who tries to stop her interfering.

In many ways a tried and repeated formula – with a small town gal solving murders better than the police and lots of scandals coming to light as a result. These rural American small towns seem to be hotbeds of scandal – lots of fraud, corruption and sex…

Not a unique formula and thus despite the fun writing style, I have marked it down for lack of imagination.
