#REVIEW: Cards from Khloe's Flower Shop by Isabella Louise Anderson


Khloe'sflowershop


isabellalouiseanderson_cardsfromkhloes_web1_6 copyAs the owner of a successful florist shop, Khloe Harper trusts her instincts. She has a strong bond with her family and friends, but after being betrayed by her last love, she's kept herself at arms’ length from romance. When dashing entertainment attorney Derek Thomas walks into her store, Khloe’s interest is piqued. What at first seems like a business relationship quickly turns into romance, and Derek slowly plucks away the petals she’s been hiding behind. Just as Khloe lets down her guard, she discovers that Derek may not be worthy of her love after all. Frumpy Connie Albright has a faux fascination with an imaginary man named Walt, thinking that by sending herself flowers from him she’ll feel less out-of-place with the “mean girls” she works with. When she comes face to face with her possible prince charming and thinking she might have a happy ending, when a truth is revealed, she wonders if she’ll ever have a Cinderella story. A recently widowed senior, Gabby Lewis, isn't ready to give up on love—which means releasing herself from survivor's guilt and taking a chance on finding happiness and companionship again. After signing up for an online dating site for senior citizens, much to her surprise, she’s matched with Harry, an energetic and loving man, who quickly eases himself into her heart. Will Gabby take the leap of falling in love again, knowing it’s possible to have two loves of her life? As each woman’s story develops through flowers and cards sent from Khloe's shop during the Fall months, they begin to learn that love can only truly blossom when you trust your heart.

My Rating: 4 stars

My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This was a book that followed the stories of three women centered around a flower shop as they search for love. Khloe, the shop owner, is finding love after a major breakup after some serious issues with her ex and truth. Following her story with Derek, I can completely understand and empathize with the rough spots they come across. In fact, I kind of understand her side more than I do Derek.
Then there is Walt and Connie....oh wow....there are no words how that storyline comes along. I found myself cringing, wincing....that storyline.... I can't say anymore without giving so very much away!
And finally there is the happiest of the three stories, the story of Gabby and Harry. It's a story that covers the older generation, where love isn't young, but the emotions are just as sweet, with more realism as age progresses. This is most likely the most hopeful of all the stories.
This book moves quickly, and just as it seems to start dragging, the twists to each of the stories happens and keeps you reading. I loved this book.
