"Brooke Shields is such a collaborative and creative partner, and an excellent example of the level of talent we are excited to work with at Hallmark Movies & Mysteries," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. "This second movie in the 'Flower Shop Mystery' franchise is a classic whodunit that will have viewers guessing and engaged as the mystery unravels."
"Flower Shop Mystery: Snipped in the Bud" follows Abby (Shields), a former lawyer and proprietor of Bloomers, a quaint Illinois flower shop. When she receives a mysterious order for black roses to be delivered to the law department of the local university, Abby, having a colorful history with the school and a daughter who is currently a student, decides to deliver the flowers herself. Upon her arrival, Abby crosses paths with a former professional rival, only to find him murdered in his office shortly after their encounter. When Abby's fingerprints are found on the murder weapon, she becomes the chief suspect in a dramatic homicide investigation, finding herself hounded by a hard-boiled detective and pursued by a relentless reporter. When things heat up and start looking bad for Abby, she decides to conduct her own murder investigation, enlisting the support of Marco (Elliott), a handsome bar owner and ex-private investigator, her best friend, Nikki (Kate Drummond) and her father, Jeffrey (Bridges). With their help, Abby gathers and interrogates a list of suspects, including school faculty and their wives and lovers, each having a plausible motive for committing the grisly crime. With a killer on the loose - and a budding romance with Marco beginning to sizzle - Abby races to solve the case and prove her innocence, before it's too late.
"Flower Shop Mystery: Snipped in the Bud" is produced by HP Flowershop Mysteries Production, with executive producers Brooke Shields and Brad Krevoy. David Anselmo is producing and Bradley Walsh ("A Killer Among Us") is directing from a script written by Gary Goldstein ("Beverly Hills 90210").
