Shelton believes flowers save people, so he's appalled when Ruth-Anne Grant demands he remove her name from his floral delivery list. The roses he spent his morning crafting came from her stalker. Shelton, embarrassed and frightened for her, gives her the stalker's name, thinking his involvement will end there. Only it doesn't. The police show up at his flower shop two days later, and they don't care about a stalker. They want to catch a murderer. And they think Shelton can help.
