The Deadliest Bouquet
The Deadliest Bouquet, now crowdfunding, is a family story about murder. Written by Erica Schultz and illustrated by Carola Borelli, it’s set in 1998 and shows the sisters Rose, Poppy, and Violet coming together, in spite of their differences, after their mother’s death.
Jasmine owned a flower shop, but it was only a cover. Her children went in different directions. Poppy is a wife and mother. Violet is a wild child. Rose resents being left behind by the others. They don’t get along, because being forced to hide some disturbing family secrets has left scars.
I’ve read the first 20% (the equivalent of a first issue), and I’m curious enough to read more. The promotional material says that Jasmine was a Nazi hunter, and she trained them to be assassins. It also compares the story to Charmed, which seems accurate, only with murder instead of magic. I’m a sucker for a story about three such different women forced into working together, I guess.
