I need to start this review by pointing out that halfway through reading the story, I bought a copy for my friend because I had a feeling she would enjoy it too.
Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop is a sweet and romantic story throughout. I can tell that a lot of love was put into it. The dating scenes reminded me of when my husband and I first got together.
I liked all three of the main characters. They were relatable and I cared about what happened to them. This made it easy to get caught up on the story and keep on reading.
The only thing that kept this book going from four to five stars was that most of the story was too happy-go-lucky. I was especially waiting for one of the characters to have a conflict since their life seemed so perfect once they met a man. I don't purposely wish bad things on people, but I like for characters to have a challenge to make their happy ending that much more worth it. I only felt that was happening for the character who struggled through a good part of the story and was most sympathetic towards her. Even so, some things fell into place for her too easily at a certain point. Khloe's flower business even seemed too perfect. I would have liked to see something happen with that, like she'd be in a position to have to save the flower shop or a major client could have been stolen by a competitor. It felt like a fairy tale in some ways and I only wish stuff like that could happen for people in real life! It was like they all had fairy godmothers without even knowing it.
Overall, it was a nice escape read with all the drama going on in the world. Almost like the book equivalent of comfort food.
In case a casting director is looking....
Khloe: Alison Sudol (After seeing her in Fantastic Beasts, I couldn't picture anyone else!)
Sharon: Brooklyn Decker
Gabby: Diane Keaton
Connie: Mackenzie Davis (The character she played on Black Mirror makes her perfect for this role.)
Derek: Stephen Amell
Harry: Richard Jenkins
Walt: Scott Eastwood
Cards From Khloe's Flowershop follows several women in their search for love:
You'll get to know Connie who has created her own imaginary man. Connie orders flowers every week and has them delivered at work, so that she can read the cards out loud to her coworkers. Connie wonders if finding true love will ever happen for her. She searches on the internet for a man who resembles Walt, the man she has invented. Connie finds someone who is everything she ever envisioned for herself. When the real Walt finds out why Connie sought him out will he be able to forgive her?
Gabby has lost her husband after a long marriage. She's devastated but has found comfort and support with her friends. Love isn't limited by age and Gabby decides to try online dating, hoping to find love again. Gabby is a fun and warm person and I loved how she interacts with people. She feels guilty about moving on and I can imagine that it can't be easy being on your own after such a long marriage. I was really happy for her when I read about how she slowly gets ready to start dating again. Will she have her second chance at love?
Cards From Khloe's Flowershop is a very sweet and uncomplicated read. Flowers will bring comfort in times of sadness and will make people happy during the good times. I loved the different stories and how they were all connected through Khloe's shop. Age is nothing but a number and it warmed my heart to read about Gabby, who's searching for love at an older age. Isabella Louise Anderson's writing is realistic and I could sympathize with all of the main characters without any difficulties. She has a nicely flowing writing style, which made me fly through the pages. I absolutely loved this heartwarming story.
M/F Romance stories
I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.
This has three very distinct stories. Khloe, Connie and Gabby.
Khloe and Derek's story is somewhat convoluted. While I can understand Khloe's reservations with truthfulness, I found that I sided more with Khloe than Derek. It seems like such a silly thing to be dishonest about. I really liked how much pride Khloe put in to her store and how her story was more about her seeing to other people's happiness.
Connie and Walt's story was more believable, I thought. Despite the deception that went on, I found that Connie's coworker was horrible and easy to hate. Then, when things really were kind of looking down for Connie, I loved that she put her big girl panties on and kept on trucking through life. She didn't let the catty woman get to her, or even the mean lady at the gym get her down. In the end, she got the happy ending she wanted.
Gabby and Harry were a story of another generation. After the death of each of their respective spouses, they find love online -which is quite new for each of them. I loved how Harry's family accepted Gabby in without questions. They just accepted that love could happen more than once for their family member.
Although each of these stories was a HEA, I did find that the bouncing back and forth was somewhat distracting. Also, the conflicts in Connie and Khloe's stories seemed forced - that they were finding issues where there weren't any.
