Blurb: Her husband's death is just the beginning of her marital woes.
Rachel's humiliation over the discovery of her late husband's affairs turns to fear when one of his mistresses sends her a poisoned bouquet. But finding the source of the killer flowers is only one step on her path to solving the mystery her husband left behind.
Deputy Dan Weston is with Rachel when the bouquet arrives, and he's at her side as she deals with so many of the secrets that come to light after her husband's death. Dan has carried a torch for Rachel since puberty and he's not going to let her dead husband's vindictive girlfriends or his psychotic mother come between them now. But that means finding out who is sending snakes and poisoned posies before one kills Rachel.
Review: Rachel's marriage has been on the rocks for awhile. She knows this, but that's just one thing she does know against so many things she doesn't. There will be time to learn that of course when her husband turns up dead.
I wasn't completely sure how I felt about Rachel in the beginning of the book. She almost seemed emotionless. My opinion changed later, however. The story started out slow, but picked up after a few chapters, and I was really getting into the mystery.
Rachel Dahlrumple is a great romantic mystery and it's also a story of starting over, and second chances. I enjoyed reading it and seeing the changes in Rachel as time went on.
