BOOK # 2
PUBLISHER KENSINGTON BOOKS
DATE OF RELEASE NOVEMBER 27, 2018
Portland was flush with spring color: blooming roses, bright flags flapping from the bows of navy ships docked along the waterfront, and neon carnival signs dotting the banks of the Willamette River. The end of the unrelenting rainy season brought a celebration like no other to the city — Rose Festival. The festival spanned three weeks from the end of May through mid-June, attracting visitors from all over the world who joined in Portland’s annual street party at the queen’s coronation, milk-carton boat races, starlight run, rose show, fleet tours, fireworks, and the pièce de résistance, the Grand Floral Parade. This year, Blomma, my aunt Elin’s boutique European-inspired flower shop, where I had been working for the past few months, had been chosen as the showcase florist for the Rose Festival. It was a huge honor. And a huge undertaking. In addition to managing our regular clientele at the shop, we had been spending every waking moment at the float barn, preparing our float and planning for the dignitaries’ dinner, which would take place the evening of the Grand Floral Parade.
Those who follow my blog know I like animal stories and have a strong interest for tales with a garden background. This book features FLORAL design, an off shot of a garden. Britta Johnston has returned to Portland, Oregon to help Aunt Elin with her Floral Shop, Blomma. The shop has been selected for all the FLORAL Designs for the Rose Festival. There is good information on building a float. The Festival events are being chased by a group calling themselves Black Fusion. They hope to disrupt the Parade so it is canceled. Brittany finds the leader of the group dead by Blomma's damaged float. Is Black Fusion successful is halting the events of the parade? How does Blomma's float do in the Parade? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND SERIES. Recipes are included.
