Wedding Flowers are Blooming! And a Giveaway

Character: Audrey Bloom
Series: Bridal Bouquet Shop Mysteries
Author: Beverly Allen

Ugh! Sorry if I'm a party pooper, but as a wedding florist, I hate it when brides come into the shop with a pre-planned bouquet of all the trendiest flowers picked from the bridal magazines. Sure, they're pretty, but they all end up looking the same, and where's the individuality? Where's the fun?

Why not pick something that says something about you? That's why I like designing unique bouquets based on the Victorian language of flowers. Not the modern dictionary of flowers, mind you, because the flower industry has given new, all positive meanings. (To sell more flowers, of course!)

So I've hidden all the most popular wedding flowers so we can't use them!

(Well, actually, Audrey has just hidden their names in the word search puzzle below.)



Here's how it works, Just find the name of ONE of the flowers and type it in the
comments, along with the title of one of the Bridal Bouquet Shop Mysteries that you would like to win if you're chosen, and your email address, in a spam-safe format, (ie. Myname AT myprovider DOT com.)

Contest will remain open until noon on Saturday, June 1st, 2019, after which one winner will be chosen at random from all eligible entries and will be notified by email.

Happy wedding season!

  25. Lily of the Valley is beautiful but takes over any garden it is planted in if it is not thinned regularly. Since I haven't started this series I would choose the first book. Thank you for the chance to enter this giveaway and for the puzzle. robeader53(at)yahoo(dot)com

  31. For Whom Bluebell Tolls. Bluebells are one of my favorites, so a myztery with them on the cover is appealing.
