Summary

Every bouquet tells a story. And every story begins at Blossom & Grow, a tiny, jewel-like flower shop in the heart of Dublin. Here, Lara works her magic: translating feelings into flower arrangements that change hearts and lives.

But what about her own heart? Has she really healed since she lost her chance to be a mother? What will happen when her own story takes a sudden turn?

Wonderful

Such a wonderful story, being a flower shop owner was what interested me in the book.

I enjoyed the book immensely but was so disappointed with the ending, it felt like such a sharp close, almost,like a group of friends suddenly turn their backs on you and close you put of the group.

The characters were wonderful and the emotions expressed throughout were deeply touching.

The narrator read beautifully it was a joy to listen to her, very soothing and expressive.

I would certainly listen to more books by both the author and the narrator.

A story full of flowers

I enjoyed listening to this book on audible. It’s a story full of flowers but also sorrow. I’m not ashamed to admit I shed a tear when I heard of the pain and sadness in some parts - but I also connected with the love when remembering those who have past that you adore.

The book twists and turns and tells the tales of different folk but all connected to the flower shop “Blossom & Grow”.

Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Slow to start, but beautiful characters

A bit doom and gloom to begin with, but once you get to know the characters you become totally invested! Not overly keen on the ending (mainly because I didn't want it to end), but I've been buying a weekly flower bouquet ever since so it's left it's mark! Would definitely recommend!
