Blog Tour 'Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop' by Isabella Louise Anderson


Today I’m excited to participate in the Blog Tour of ‘Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop’.  This is a Romance novel that was published on March 17th.

About the Book:

As the owner of a successful florist shop, Khloe Harper trusts her instincts. She has a strong bond with her family and friends, but after being betrayed by her last love, she's kept herself at arms’ length from romance. When dashing entertainment attorney Derek Thomas walks into her store, Khloe’s interest is piqued. What at first seems like a business relationship quickly turns into romance, and Derek slowly plucks away the petals she’s been hiding behind. Just as Khloe lets down her guard, she discovers that Derek may not be worthy of her love after all.

Frumpy Connie Albright has a faux fascination with an imaginary man named Walt, thinking that by sending herself flowers from him she’ll feel less out-of-place with the “mean girls” she works with. When she comes face to face with her possible prince charming and thinking she might have a happy ending, when a truth is revealed, she wonders if she’ll ever have a Cinderella story.

A recently widowed senior, Gabby Lewis, isn't ready to give up on love—which means releasing herself from survivor's guilt and taking a chance on finding happiness and companionship again. After signing up for an online dating site for senior citizens, much to her surprise, she’s matched with Harry, an energetic and loving man, who quickly eases himself into her heart. Will Gabby take the leap of falling in love again, knowing it’s possible to have two loves of her life?

As each woman’s story develops through flowers and cards sent from Khloe's shop during the Fall months, they begin to learn that love can only truly blossom when you trust your heart.

My Review:


When I first read the book description of ‘Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop’ I knew I needed to read this book. This book sounded like a fun romantic feel-good read, and at times I really like books like that. 
In ‘Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop’ we read the stories of three different woman who are all in a way connected to Khloe’s Flower Shop. There is Khloe, the owner of Khloe’s Flower Shop. There is Connie, a lonely woman with an imaginary boyfriend. And Gabby, a widow who really wants to start living her life again. These woman are all very different but they all have in common they really want to find love.

‘Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop’ is the perfect book to read when you’re in need of a feel-good story. The story is very cliché and predictable but it still makes you want to keep on reading because the characters are just so nice and loveable. The romance stories are just way too good to be true, but I didn’t really expect more by reading the book description so it worked perfectly for me. 

From the three stories, I liked Khloe’s story the most. I loved how she was this hardworking, self-made woman and I loved how strong she seemed to be. The romance between her and Derek felt the most true to me and I loved reading their story.
Connie’s story was definitely nice too, but she was just so awkward and really didn’t care much about herself.  And although I definitely enjoyed reading about Gabby and Harry, I felt like their story was the most unreal one. I just didn’t feel their chemistry. But I did love the way Gabby became a part of Harry’s family. 

Overall this was a nice story that definitely made me feel-good. The writing was very easy to follow, and very descriptive. And I really enjoyed my getting-away moment while reading this book.
