But has her life become too full for someone like Pete Sprockett, a childhood friend, for whom her romantic feelings are beginning to bloom? Join the quirky, loving community of Bloomfield as they do what they do best – poke their well-meaning noses in and intervene in times of need –in author Debby Mayne’s second novel in what has become a five book series about a community where life is simple and love is real.

My Thoughts: 
At first I was a little unsure of this one.  I could not decide if I   liked the characters and their garden club adventures or if I was bored by the everyday humdrum of the story line.  After while though I realized I was enjoying the story.  It went a relaxing pace and was an easy read.  The characters soon became endearing and I found myself looking forward to picking the book up again.  It was not one of those books full of mystery and suspense that you just cannot put down, it was more a sweet homey book.  It took me a while to get into this one, but I did enjoy it after I got going with it.
