It’s never too late for a second chance…
Tonight should be the best night of Lucy Higgins’s life. Tomorrow she’s finally marrying Owen Cooper. She’s been waiting to start a life of wedded bliss, like the happy marriage her parents have. Except…she just learned her parents are divorcing and she’s freaking out. Owen has been so distant lately, shutting her out. Suddenly this big wedding seems like a really bad idea. Packing up her car, Lucy bolts for Rendezvous Falls and finds work at a flower shop while she gets her life together. The last thing she expects is for Owen to show up, wanting her back.
Owen Cooper’s carefully planned out life is ready to begin. He’s home from the military to join the family business and marry the sweet girl who captured his heart…until Lucy runs out on him. That was not part of the plan. Armed with an article that promises to help him win her back, Owen heads to Rendezvous Falls. But from the moment he sees her again, she seems…different. Happier, more confident and at ease. Can he convince this new version of Lucy that he’s become the man she deserves? He might need a little help from the local book club to accomplish this mission…
Amusing, heartwarming, and charming!
Love Blooms is a lighthearted, emotive, second-chance romance that takes you into the life of the confused, stressed-out Lucy Higgins, who after fleeing the church on her wedding day, stops trying to please everyone else, rediscovers passions long forgotten, finds a new place to call home, and works with the one man she left at the altar and who is willing to do whatever it takes to win her back to rediscover happiness, passion, their best selves, and a life they both deserve.
The writing is genuine and fluid. The characters are kind, attentive, and authentic. And the plot is a heartfelt, uplifting blend of friendship, family, introspection, drama, community, tricky situations, romantic gestures, unconditional love, and new beginnings.
Overall, Love Blooms is a big-hearted, engaging, cosy tale by McNally that is another wonderful addition to the Rendezvous Falls series with characters you can’t help but root for and a happy-ever-after ending that leaves you smiling, satisfied, and ready for more.
