Summary from the author:
Like a butterfly on a summer breeze, love rarely lands where it’s expected.
Working for her dad’s landscaping business stifles Linnea Ranta. When she’s invited to design and build a community garden with an intriguing master carpenter, she seizes the chance to unfurl her wings, but at what expense to her heart?
Logan Dermott eases back his flirting when he senses Linnea’s fragility, but she has more backbone than he suspected. As they work together, Logan finds he’s falling for her, but it may be too late to win her love.
Will Linnea break free of her chrysalis and fly away before Logan realizes what he almost had?
I really enjoyed this second installment of Valerie Comer’s Urban Farm Fresh Romances. I thought it was cool how she made this one somewhat concurrent with the first one, Secrets of Sunbeams. I always enjoy when the same scene happens in two different books in a series and you get to experience it from different perspectives, and she does that several times in these two books. Another thing I found interesting about this book is that, even though both of the main characters are in their mid to late twenties, this reads a lot like a YA coming-of-age story as they both really find themselves throughout the course of this book. Finally, my favorite thing about all of Valerie Comer’s books, this one included, is the way she builds godly community. I loved getting to know all the other characters in this little urban community a little bit better in this book, and I’m looking forward to book 3 to get to know all of them a little better and a least one of them a lot better!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
“She’d been a shadowed hosta all her life and, though she longed for the light, he’d be looking for a showy flower that danced in the sunshine.”
“I’m not expecting one man to hand me my heart’s desire on a silver platter. That’s not his job.”
“No more looking to a man to fill a need only God could satisfy.”
