Revell Blog Tour: Bouquet of Love

A Bouquet of Love (Weddings by Design #4)Author: Janice Thompson
Publication Date: August 19, 2014
Publisher: Revell
Series: Weddings by Design # 4

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 . . .

Fan favorite Janice Thompson gives readers one more romp with Bella, Galveston, and the bustling wedding biz in the final installment of her popular series. Anyone who loves quirky families, loads of laughter, and tender romance will find themselves hooked.

God would make all things beautiful – like the fragrant bouquet – in his time. If I could just hang on for the ride.

And with a family like mine, who had the time to dream of Prince Charming?

I had to die somehow. Might as well be with this good-looking guy on my arm and pepperoni on my breath.

Fans of Thompson are sure to love the newest book in her Weddings By Design series! If you are looking for a sweet, easy read, then look no further because this series brings smiles to my face each and every time. Cassia is our main character and she is such a fun and loveable character. This book centers a lot around familial relationships as Cassia, who doesn’t always see eye to eye with her father, begins working for the Rossi family, who are rivals in business to Cassia’s own crazy Greek family. Cassia has other dreams for herself, and they are different from what her father has in mind for her. Cassia loves floral design and really wants no part in a family restaurant, but will she be able to tell all this to her father and follow her dreams?

Thompson’s books never fail me. Whenever I need a quick pick me up or some stress relief from a chaotic day, her books will always do the trick. This is the fourth book in this series and I would really be very content if she kept this series going for quite a while. The characters are always delightful and easy to relate to. The family rivalry in this story was a great add on as it’s not something you often read in too many books. It added a nice challenge to Cassia’s dreams because it put so much strain her relationship with her father. This book has an encouraging underlying message as well that I believe anyone can appreciate and relate to!
