What if you could find the love of your life just by reading between the lines?
Single mom Fordham Price is juggling her job at a small publisher, her precocious ten-year-old daughter, and her feisty mother. She wants to find time for men, but after a series of dating disasters, her relationship status is still stuck at single.
As if her macchiato lite wasn’t already overflowing, a co-worker gets pregnant, and Fordham is expected to step in and deliver the company’s latest reality read from the Flowers from the Heart series. She must now supplement her own romantic misadventures with tales of cynical cat-ladies, identical-twin husbands, spunky monks, and countless other web-crawlers.
As she wades through the submissions, she finds one from a widower whose story gives her tingles in all the places she forgot existed. His words draw her in until she finds herself daydreaming about him more than she’d care to admit.
Could she have a love like that, or will her romantic fate be forever bound to her philandering ex-husband?
Thank you to Book Sirens for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
This is a comedic story with a really interesting premise. The story starts with Fordham being blindsided by her colleague suddenly leaving and having to pick up work in putting together the next book in the Flowers from the Heart book series. One of the things I really enjoyed about the book was being able to read all of the submissions for the book, it really felt like the sort of things people would probably reply with. I also loved Fordham’s relationship with her daughter, it really provided an added warmth to the story. An entertaining Chick-lit story of all the unlikely places to find love.
