Praise for A Dream of Lilies:
"This story is for those appreciative of an in-depth story line. The attention to detail is enchanting. Petra's writing style always makes me feel personally invested in the character's lives, which I find a redeeming quality. It's passionate and heartbreaking; a beacon for the emotional junkie in everyone." - The Literary Melting Pot
"For Lily taking another chance at love is too much. If she let Nicholas into her heart who knows what he will do it. After all David broke it into pieces so it's difficult to try love again.[...]Petra March has a unique writing style which never disappoints me." -Books Eater Blog
"The 'A Touch of Cinnamon' series is getting better and better and, albeit this is a short novella, it is most definitely my favourite book so far. There is something so very poetic about the way it is written as it perfectly blends romance and tragedy." -The Book Magnet
"I can honestly say that one of my most favorite things when it comes to Petra March's writing is the visual imagery her stories possess. While reading A Dream of Lilies, I felt as if I were seeing the story play out in a series of watercolor paintings - moving their way across the pages in an abundance of colors." -The Turning Pages

I enjoyed reading this touching story about love and loss. I especially love author's appreciation of art and the way she used it in her story, making it so much more interesting to read and easy to admire.
A dream of lilies:
I loved this short and sweet romantic story. This is Lily's story. The tragedy of the past has been following her every where, there is no escaping the hurt, the betrayal, and the horror of everything that happened. David was gone and she was unable to forgive or forget.
Nicholas has his own demons but when he meets beautiful actress Lily he feels hope. Hope that he had lost three years ago. She is perfect and he is falling in love. Although he is too scared to do anything about it at least not without a little encouragement. He feels that she like him too but what if he were wrong?
For Lily taking another chance at love is too much. If she let Nicholas into her heart who knows what he will do it. After all David broke it into pieces so it's difficult to try love again....
Soon they both realise that they are connected by more than their mutual attraction to each other. For better or worse their pasts are intertwined with each other. In order to move past the tragedy they share they must re-visit it ....
A beautifully written story, I enjoyed reading it a lot. Although I think it might be read as stand alone but knowing the previous history of the characters will make reading experience much better. So I recommend reading first two books before you read this one. But you can give it a try in any case. Petra March has a unique writing style which never disappoints me. :)
Petra March just has a way with words. Her books are almost "magic" the way she composes the beauty of a story is fantastic. This book is the third installment of this series and you need to read book 1 and 2 prior to this one. But don't worry.. You will love those books just as much.
Lily and Nicholas both have past tragedies, but they meet by accident. Is it fate is it good luck. What ever this chance meeting is, it is breathtaking. I love their attraction, I love their story and I loved their common thread between these two lives. Like I said this book has a magical feeling to it.
This was a great, quick and beautiful read. It is full of heartbreak, love, forgiveness and beauty. Definitely a #mustread.
Both book are amazing and being together i one book is amazing.
