Book Review: A Bouquet of Love
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 . . .
Janice Thompson is a seasoned romance author and screenwriter. An expert at pulling the humor from the situations we get ourselves into, Thompson offers an inside look at the wedding business, drawing on her own experiences as a wedding planner. She is the author of the hugely popular Weddings by Bella series and the Backstage Pass series, as well as Picture Perfect, The Icing on the Cake, and The Dream Dress. She lives in Texas.

A sweet, fun, romantic read....probably more on the goofy side if you factor in Cassia's crazy father! Have you ever wondered what happens when you mix a few Greeks and Italian's? Passion....loud, crazy, fun passion...that's what.
Cassia is in quite a bit of a tangle, she loves her family, but she loves flowers as well and is quite ready to cut back on the Gyro making....but she smartly fears her father...I would too if my father wore super hero costumes!
If you've read any of the other books in the Weddings by Bella series you'll meet up with some old friends, and learn to love even more new friends....definitely a stand alone story, but so fun you'll want to read them all.
