Abby Knight is a flower shop owner. She and her brand new husband, Marco, have just returned from a romantic honeymoon. The last thing they could imagine happening is finding the skeleton of a man buried beneath the basement floor of Marco's bar; it destroys the mood.

First things first. The bones need to be identified. How long have they been buried? Who could it be? Has anyone disappeared from town? Is this a fairly new burial or could this person have been buried years ago? And why here? In the basement of a bar?

Abby and Marco decide to do some sleuthing on their own in spite of being told by the police to butt out of their investigation. A cold case! What else could top a wonderful honeymoon than to solve a case before the police do? They both jump in with both feet, but soon realize that they might have bitten off more than they can chew. They are beginning to feel as though they might be getting close to solving the case but at their own peril. They'd like to be around to celebrate their first anniversary.

Throw in the Trowel lives up to expectations. Readers have another winner on their hands with this fourteenth in the Flower Shop mystery series.
