AboutShe 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 . . .

"A Bouquet of Love", is another book in the Weddings by Design series by Janice Thompson. This novel is one of my favorites. Cassia has a family that loves to do their own thing and go their own way. They decide to move the whole family to Galveston to open a new family restaurant, including her. Cassia wants to work in a floral shop, but she is expected to work with the rest of her family. I could not help but smile at some of the statements by her family, mostly her father. He believes that everyone should do what he wants them to do even if they are adults . The rivalry between their restaurant and the one across the street is fun. I really enjoyed this book and I give it a 5/5. I was given this book by Revell Publishing and all opinions are my own.
