My thoughts:  Why did I not know about this series before now?  This is the third book and I haven't read the first two.  What rock have I been hiding under to have missed them?

This is a romance/suspense book.  Kady wants to succeed with her family's florist shop.  She knows that by expanding their clientele into the wedding market she can help the business flourish.  Her plans are to enter and the convention design competition to attract brides.  

Of course, the when you are not looking or expecting romance, it seem to find you.  Dylan is undercover to find the drug dealer who killed his partner.  He is keeping his job as a DEA agent a secret, to disguise himself as someone helping his mother at the convention.

There is more going on in this story.  It seems as if there are secrets upon secrets.  Then a few more are revealed.  As a reader, you know most of the things going on behind the scenes, just waiting for the characters to discover them.  For me, it helped to cheer them on and hope that everyone is happy when it all comes out in the open.  I really can't say a lot more, because I  like this book and am giving it a high recommendation.

It has some kissing, detective work, and mild violence

I am giving it 4 stars.

Now one of L.A.'s most in-demand celebrity event planners, Nealy's only come back for a vacation and to help with her sister's wedding—not for a reunion with her long-lost love. But the more their paths cross, the more the sparks fly! Maybe their connection isn't over just yet….,
