Traditional meaning of Pink and White Roses: I love you still and always will.
Caitlyn Marsh stopped believing in happily-ever-after when high-school sweetheart, Gideon Garza, left for Iraq. Now she raises her small son while her matchmaking gardening club members drive her crazy. Then Caitlyn's world turns upside-down when Gideon swaggers back to Twilight.
Gideon had left town in the middle of night with threats ringing in his ears. A lot of things have changed since then. This bad boy-turned-Green Beret bears scars from the war, the timid girl he loved is an independent mother, and the father who refused to recognize his son in life has, in death, left him a vast cattle ranch.
He still aches for Caitlyn, and now there's a dark-haired boy who looks exactly like Gideon did at that age. Could the child be his? And can this war-weary soldier overcome the scars of the past to claim the family he so richly deserves?

I love all the "first love" books in this series, makes you think that "dreams" can come true in real life.
This book can be read as a stand alone, but once you read this one you will want to read the entire series! :)
Some sexual content, not to strong, but cautious for Younger Readers.
10-Stars for Lori! :)
"Then he stripped off his helmet, pulled away his goggles, and Caitlyn stared straight into the eyes of a dead man." Goosebumps popped out on my arms when I read this and I just knew I was going to love this story.
"The Welcome Home Garden Club" is the fifth of her Twilight, Texas series, and another winner as far as I'm concerned. This heart-warming story is one of Wilde's best. By the way, all of the other books in this series are very good and I have enjoyed reading all of them. The True Love Quilting Club (Avon Romance) The Sweethearts' Knitting Club The First Love Cookie Club
All of the books have endearing characters, just the right amount of sweet & spicy sex and stories, which will twist your heart but leave you feeling good with a happy ending. And that's why I read romance, and Lori Wilde is one of the best romance authors writing today. This book jumps to the top of my favorites-list from this author, for several reasons. I think it has some of her best story-telling. She is masterful at showing the reader -painting pictures with her words - rather than simply telling us. Our journey through the story is even more enjoyable because of this.
Her humor is also evident. One of my favorite passages is when she explains how the hero of the story, Gideon Garza gets his nickname, Giddy. Fun!
Each chapter begins with the traditional meaning of a flower.Read more ›
As I said, a very improbable premise, but I really liked the characters themselves. Caitlyn was learning to be independent--and that it was ok to ask for help. Gideon is trying to put the horror of war behind him. They have their past, but have to work for a future.
The book is mass-market romance and it has some very steamy intimate scenes and they happen before marriage. Despite the sweet-looking cover, this is not a Macomber-style romance. Oh, and just in case you are wondering--they live happily ever after.
I'd like to thank the publisher for offering a complimentary review copy via NetGalley. Grade: B
This is the fourth book in the Twilight, Texas series by Lori Wilde. However, it is the first book by Lori that I have read. It will not be the last.
The story centers around two characters, Caitlyn Marsh and Gideon Garza. Two high school sweethearts who have had the last eight years of their lives changed dramatically as a result of things done to them by the adults in their lives.
Caitlyn Blackthorne Marsh grew up being privileged, as the only child of Judge Richard Blackthorne and his late wife Angelica. Gideon Garza grew up on the wrong side of town. Being the son of a maid and not knowing who his father was, until the day his mother died.
Gideon burned down the barn of his father. His father's friend, who happened to be Judge Blackthorne, gave him a choice of going to jail or joining the military. Gideon did the only thing he could do and joined the Army.
I was immediately drawn to the two lead characters because despite everything that has happened to them individually over the past eight years, they're still good people. And they each still have a deep love and respect for one another.
I think I fall in love with Gideon immediately. There are so many reasons to love him. It's hard to find a place to start. Gideon could forever hold a grudge against his father and Judge Blackthorne for their parts in making him into the "broken man" that he is, but he really doesn't. He knows that their actions made him a better person in the end. Gideon manages to forgive all of those who did him wrong. I find that very impressive and honorable.
When it comes to Caitlyn, I completely understand where she's coming from. She has some issues with forgiving.Read more ›
