Hallmark Movies And Mysteries offers viewers a real treat with Flower Shop Mystery: Snipped In The Bud, which centers around the intelligent Abby Knight -- an ex-attorney who works in the state of Illinois, where she owns and runs Bloomers, a sophisticated boutique that offers an array of custom floral arrangements in the area. We last saw Abby when she had to go up against a competitor who tried to steal her business away. Now, Abby has even bigger problems, as she makes front page news of the local paper, where a reporter has connected her to the murder of a former college rival she met in law school.
Abby has become the number one suspect. After all, she was last seen at the murder location after receiving a mysterious order for black roses, which were later found in the dead rival's office. Not only did police find a black rose from Abby's shop, but they also have her fingerprints on the murder weapon.
Now, the homicide investigation is in full swing, and it seems that the police have zeroed in on her. Fearing for her future, Abby starts sleuthing on her own in an effort to clear her name. And who better to help her other than a handsome private detective named Marco who happens to own the local bar?
Together, Abby and Marco come up with a list of suspects and their spouses who may have something to gain while framing Abby. Meanwhile, Marco can't get Abby out of his mind, and he seems more than willing to help her find the real killer. Will Abby and Marco's relationship continue to sizzle? And can they take their eyes off each other long enough to solve the crime?
