When Cassia Pappas arrives on Galveston Island, TX, with her very Greek family from Southern California, she’s in for a rough landing. Juggling family obligations, new friendships, a new job, and a new love, Cassie is drowning in tzatzaiki sauce in Janice Thompson’s newest romantic comedy, A Bouquet of Love.
From the Publisher
She didn’t expect to fall in love – but roses aren’t the only thing blooming on Galveston Island…
Cassia Pappas has found herself in a nearly impossible situation. She wants to spend her time immersed in her new job at a Galveston Island floral shop, arranging blooms and brightening occasions with her lovely creations. But her boisterous Greek family – especially her father–has other ideas. They’ve all relocated to Galveston to open up a new family restaurant located on the Strand–directly across the street from iconic pizza place Parma John’s–and they want Cassia’s full participation.
To make matters worse, as Cassia is trying to develop a strong professional relationship with Galveston’s premier wedding coordinator, Bella Neeley, her own father is intent on stealing all of the Rossi family’s faithful customers. Not exactly the best way to get into this former Rossi’s good graces!
Still, at least Alex, that hot delivery guy from the nursery, is always hanging around the flower shop…
Whenever I pick up a Janice Thompson novel, I know that I’m in for a good read. Light-witty humor and a fast-paced story make A Bouquet of Love a perfect read for a late summer’s eve.
A Bouquet of Love brought back the Pappas family from one of Janice’s earlier series, Backstage Pass, tying them in with the characters from the Rossi family (from the Weddings by Bella and Weddings by Design series). All of these characters that I’ve come to love through Janice’s books came together for a side-splitting comedy full of faith, family, and love.
I definitely recommend that you add A Bouquet of Love to your summer reading queue, and I give it a 4 out of 5 stars!
