Alice Attler has a green thumb in everything except cultivating relationships. Though she’s more comfortable encouraging green things to grow, she’s mystified that every relationship she’s had has withered. When a client’s daffodils won’t grow, she heads to the bait shop for earthworms where she meets Mark.
Mark Kincaide doesn’t know what to do with himself. His brother is on his honeymoon and he’s stuck with Grandma for company. Plus, he’s not a fan of the evil llamas. Just once he wants to do something heroic and be known as someone other than the bait guy. When the local plant specialist/florist comes calling, he can’t take his eyes off her…and it’s for more than catching a glimpse of bird poop in her hair.
An innocent trip to a river bank to dig up bulbs puts Alice in danger and Mark finally has his chance to play the hero. After things settle down, he hopes he and Alice will have more in common than just worms and a penchant for taking tumbles into embarrassing moments.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a very fun upbeat romantic story. The main characters pull you in right away, and the story was very easy to follow. This is the perfect book for a lazy Sunday, not too long and can be finished in a single sitting.
I would have to say I liked the grandmother the most, she was a very eccentric lady to say the least !! Overall, this was a good book and would probably be a great fit for teenagers on up to adults. This was very tame compared to some romance novels, and didn’t contain any adult situations.
I would give this 4 stars and would definitely recommend it.
