THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!
A very attractive cover and the price was right so I decided to read the book. I had never read this author and I was curious. This the first book in the Port Danby series. I found the writing was easy to read however the characters needed more development.
Lacey ‘Pink’ Pinkerton has left her job in the large city moving to a small port town. She is opening a flower shop and looking forward to living in a small close knitted area. She is returning home one day when she found a woman with her head in a smashed pumpkin. The woman is dead and she meets the detective and gives him several clues that her nose is able to detect. It isn’t long before she accompanied the detective as he explores the case. Is the pumpkin contest the motive in the killing? There is a side story running along about a twenty-year-old murder where a man shot his wife and two children and then himself. This story interested Pink and she decided to find out more.
