Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop by Isabella Louise Anderson - Review


As 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 Review: 

A fantastic read that you won’t want to end.   

Follow Khloe and her customers, Connie and Gabby, as they search for love.  The story is centered around Khloe's Flower Shop where Khloe and her best friend Sharon get to know their customers through the messages that go out with their orders.

Khloe’s last relationship ending badly and she has a hard time trusting men.  Her mother is anxious for Khloe to settle down and have children, which drives Khloe a little crazy.  When Mr. Perfect comes into the shop one day, Khloe decided maybe it is time to start dating again.  But Derek has a secret that threatens to tear them apart soon after they start dating.  Gabby is a widow who has only loved and been with one man in her life, her late husband Charlie.  She ends up going on an internet dating site to find her new love.  And, Connie desperately wants to be loved.  To make her co-workers think she has a boyfriend, she sends herself flowers to work.  But when one girl calls her bluff, she goes on a dating site looking for a man with the same name as the one she made up.  This could be pure bliss or it could be a total disaster.

I really liked this book.  When one of my friends recommended it to me, I knew it had to be good.  Each of the women had different obstacles they needed to pass to find true love.  I could relate to certain parts of the story too which made it even more interesting to me.  This is one of those books that you won't forget when you're done reading it.  It will stick with you and make you want more of each of the characters.
