Who says you can’t choose your family?
When Flora falls in love with Jack, suddenly she’s not only handling a very cranky teenager, but she’s also living in the shadow of Jack’s perfect, immortalised wife, Becca. Every summer, Becca and Jack would holiday with Becca’s oldest friends and Jack wants to continue the tradition, so now Flora must face a summer trying to live up to Becca’s memory, with not only Jack’s daughter looking on, but with Becca’s best friends judging her every move…
The more Flora tries to impress everyone, the more things go horribly wrong…but as the summer unfolds, Flora begins pushing her own boundaries, and finding herself in a way that she never thought she needed to.
And she soon learns that families come in all shapes and sizes.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
I get so excited when a new Sarah Morgan book comes out as she brings to life such incredible characters and Flora is no exception. Flora has been a bit of a door matt for her employer for years now. She works in a florist, just like her mum had, it was her life. She was always the one that covered the shifts no-one wanted or was called on when someone else didn’t turn in to work. That was until the day Jack came into the shop looking for flowers for his daughter, that day it was more than the flowers that bloomed.
Jack was a widower with two children and Flora was the wallflower that only had a work-life. Now Flora was going to Jack’s for a meal and to meet his girls but not everyone is ready for moving on.
Flora thought that she would have been able to connect with Jack’s girls having lost her own mother when she was only 8 and being brought up with a resentful aunt who took the role of carer on out of duty, not love. With every page I turned I wanted to grab hold of Flora and give her a hug, everything worked against her though with a determined teenager that kept her own mum totally out of Flora’s league. Flora felt like Jack’s wife Becca was more a Premier league status while she was little league but she was determined not to give up. Everything seemed to go over the top of Jack’s head, he thought everything in the garden was rosy.
The story goes from Brooklyn to the Lake District and Sarah Morgan brought both to life equally. I loved the changes that were happening in Flora that made her push herself out of her comfort zone. This is a beautifully written book that captures the heartbreak of losing someone you love and unfinished business that needs closure. A brilliant read again.
I wish to thank NetGalley and the publisher for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
