"A Bouquet of Love" by Janice Thompson


About this book:

  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 huge Greek family–especially her father–has other ideas. They’ve all relocated to Galveston to open up a new family restaurant location on the Strand– directly across the street from the Rossis’ popular pizza place–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 Bella’s good graces!
Still, at least Alex, that hot delivery guy from the nursery, is always hanging around the flower shop . . .

What a wild ride to finish off this series! It’s no secret that I love the name Cassia and I also love Janice Thompson books, so this book had the makings of a winner for me. I will admit that I did feel wore out at times with Cassia’s family and the feud, but I really liked the ending—even though it was bittersweet!

"Stagestruck" by Emily Thomas


About this book:

  “Anne is thrilled when her old high school friend Tami Bates returns to Blue Hill for a visit. Tami is a theater producer's assistant in London, and she has an intriguing mystery for Anne. In the pocket of a costume she purchased at an auction, Tami found a note that mentions the legendary missing play by Hugh Bettridge, a famous playwright. The note is signed by Edie Summers and indicates Anne's aunt had the missing play. Anne hasn't come across the script, but she agrees to look for it. She quickly learns several other people are also searching for the valuable manuscript and are willing to go to great lengths to get it.
  Meanwhile, the local drama society is putting on a play to raise money for a new roof for the theater. Ben and Liddie eagerly join the cast, and Anne reluctantly agrees to take over a small role when the original actress is injured. The only problem is her character is supposed to kiss Alex's character! Can Anne get over her jitters so that the show can go on?”

My personal Rating-
Since these books are written by many different authors (Emily Thomas is a pen name) around the same time, I did notice a couple inconsistencies in this book following the prior book. But, oh, boy! Wouldn’t I love to explore Aunt Edie’s attic! I did get lost a few times when all the play stuff and names were being mentioned as that’s not really my thing. It was an interesting mystery, though.
