Young romance opens like a rose . . . but even a rose has its thorns.
Tessa Gregory is nothing if not tenacious. Denied a position as a horticulturist at prestigious Como Park in Saint Paul, Minnesota, she is not above a little benevolent deception in order to get the park superintendent to change his mind and hire her. She plans to infiltrate the world of wealthy and influential people in hopes of drumming up financial support for a world-class conservatory. But before she can put those plans into action, she meets Reese King, a handsome gardener at Como Park--and a major distraction. Still, Reese might be the key to achieving her dream. But is his goal to help her . . . or to capture her heart?
As Love Blooms by Lorna Seilstad was a great fun to read. I loved the character of Tessa, she's sweet and sassy! My kind of main character. She's has to be one of my favorites. Very fun to get to know and read about. Also Reese is a top notch hero. I loved his determination to be somebody. I thoroughly enjoyed As Love Blooms and wish that the book hadn't ended. If your looking for an amazing historical read with some women's suffrage then As Love Blooms is the book for you. You won't regret reading it!
5 out of 5. A sweet Afternoon Snack.
I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
