Abby says the photo in the newspaper is her driver license photo. The photo is from the waist up. Driver license photos are taken from the neck up so as to focus upon facial features. Additionally, under the Drivers Privacy Protection Act (DPPA), driver license photos are not public record so the reporter would not be able to obtain it. See more »

So what's the motive?
24 October 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The second Flower Shop Mystery: Snipped In The Bud has our lawyer/florist making a personal delivery of flowers to the law school at her alma mater and to Professor Jeff Teravainen. Only Brooke Shields finds she's delivered her flowers to a corpse. Unfortunately she also touched an item at the crime scene.

Which puts her as number one suspect for Detective Paulino Nunes. I could so identify with this part of the story. In my days at NYS Crime Victims Board I saw cases where the police just got an idea and stuck with it and sometimes they were wrong in their theory of the crime. The fact that Brooke had no motive at all for killing this man who was a very popular professor didn't seem to make no differences to Nunes.

So with the help of boyfriend Brennan Elliott and some counsel from Beau Bridges her dad, Brooke manages to come up with a nice list of suspects.

I have to say the one who did it was not one I suspected. That's always the biggest factor for me in evaluating a mystery film. I don't think you'll figure it out either.
