There wasn’t a whole lot of conflict in this story. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, just an observation. It’s more like Grace and Reed were really meant to be and their hearts knew that, so once they cleared the air the relationship just naturally fell into place.
Now, that’s not to say there is no conflict. There are issues that the couple need to work out, such as dealing with having a long-distance relationship. It’s actually more like Grace has to come to terms with who she is and who she wants to be. She accomplished the things she set out to do when she left her small hometown after high school. Her life is all she wanted it to be…or is it? And Reed has some issues that have to do with his parents that he has to resolve. Can he truly have a happy life without finding out the truth and finding forgiveness in his heart?
Grace’s sisters are a whole lot of fun and I’m anticipating having a blast getting to know them (and her brother) in this part of the Love in Bloom series. There are so many possibilities with all of their different personalities.
As much as I enjoyed this story, it was somehow easy for me to put down. There just wasn’t that extra something that keeps me reading even when I have other things to do. I wouldn’t have missed it for the world, but it didn’t quite grip me like most of the other books in the larger series.
