When magical florist Harriette Harkette decides to throw a lavish eightieth birthday party for herself, she hires Darcy's Aunt Ve's personal concierge service, As You Wish, to plan the soiree. But turning eighty isn't all Harriette is celebrating-the Floracrafter has recently created the midnight black Witching Hour rose, the first all-natural rose of that color.
Darcy works hard on planning an extravagant celebration that will make Harriette feel like the belle of the ball. But when cake delivery boy Michael Healey-a former employee at Harriette's greenhouse-is found dead, the celebration takes a turn. Now Michael's ghost has imprinted on Darcy, meaning that they're bonded until she can untangle the thicket surrounding his murder-and what exactly it has to do with the Witching Hour rose.

Proud book worm!
This series just keeps getting better! I very much so enjoy Heather Blake's writing talent and Coleen Marlo's narrations! Once again Darcy finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation but this time the deceased's spirit has imprinted to her and she finds she has to solve his murder to help him pass over. Also Nick, her love interest and cop is embroiled into this and there is pressure on their relationship due to it and of course Nick's co-worker Glenda...who also is in love with him....causing it. The book has it's funny twists, mystery and magic.!!! Loved it!!!
Yes because everyone needs a talking mouse & parrot!
Pepe see above!
I lol'ed all the way home!
More books please!
As a mystery it could use a little work, the reader should be able to work the clues also. As just a fun read it works well. Characters are quirky and the story is paced well. On to the next!
Have a Boomerang Millenial Daughter. We like her, she likes us so, nice to have her back. Both my Husband and I are Proud USN Veterans.
I really enjoyed the storyline. I must say Coleen Marlo has improved greatly. Most characters had very distinct voices. I am getting restless with Darcy and Nick ' s relationship. Enough already!!! The ending was great, so it's on to the next story.
The writing is good keeps you capitulated. The narrator does a good job with the characters. Looking forward to more of this series.
