A savannah florist is about to score the wedding of a lifetime--one that will solidify her career as the go-to-girl for society nuptials. Ironically, Cara Kryzik doesn't believe in love, even though she creates beautiful flower arrangements to celebrate them. But when the bride goes missing and the wedding is in jeopardy, Cara must find the bride and figure out what she believes in. Maybe love really does exist outside of fairy tales after all. 
My thoughts
I enjoyed this audiobook, nice light entertainment while I walk.  The narrator was competent and made the listening a pleasant experience. 

Cara is a florist, with a lot going for her - and many challenges that constantly seem to appear and try to trip her up!  She is successful at what she does - but she still owes her dad money on the start up of the business, and now he is demanding that it be paid back in full.  She is working out of a building that is in need of repair - especially the air conditioning and cooling room where she keeps her flowers.

Add to that an assistant who suddenly starts to act a little strangely and becomes unreliable, an ex who is a nuisance and a handsome guy who has stolen her dog - Poppy.  Only he has a dog exactly the same as Poppy so perhaps it was a genuine mistake.

It doesn't matter what happens to thwart Cara, she manages to come out ahead.  Even when a toffy nosed competitor turns up in town, she fights back.  The dog stealer is not what he at first seemed to be and Cara finds that love is a possibility.

4 stars.


  1. Everyone seems to be reading this book or listening to it but me. :) :)

    Glad you enjoyed it.

    How is school? Did your students like the sign you made you them?


    1. I think this one was published earlier in the year, so I guess many are getting around to it. School going well, yes students were suitably impressed by my car magnet!!

  2. This sounds like a nice easy read to wind down the summer with.

    1. Yse Pat, it was a easy listen actually - not her best, but enjoyable.

  3. A lot of good reviews for this one! It does sound great for listening to while walking.
