Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop by Isabella Louise Anderson

Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop

 As the owner of a successful florist shop, Khloe Harper trusts her instincts. She has a strong bond with her family and friends, but after being betrayed by her last love, she's kept herself at arms’ length from romance. When dashing entertainment attorney Derek Thomas walks into her store, Khloe’s interest is piqued. What at first seems like a business relationship quickly turns into romance, and Derek slowly plucks away the petals she’s been hiding behind. Just as Khloe lets down her guard, she discovers that Derek may not be worthy of her love after all.

Frumpy Connie Albright has a faux fascination with an imaginary man named Walt, thinking that by sending herself flowers from him she’ll feel less out-of-place with the “mean girls” she works with. When she comes face to face with her possible prince charming and thinking she might have a happy ending, when a truth is revealed, she wonders if she’ll ever have a Cinderella story.

A recently widowed senior, Gabby Lewis, isn't ready to give up on love—which means releasing herself from survivor's guilt and taking a chance on finding happiness and companionship again. After signing up for an online dating site for senior citizens, much to her surprise, she’s matched with Harry, an energetic and loving man, who quickly eases himself into her heart. Will Gabby take the leap of falling in love again, knowing it’s possible to have two loves of her life?

As each woman’s story develops through flowers and cards sent from Khloe's shop during the Fall months, they begin to learn that love can only truly blossom when you trust your heart.

Told in alternating chapters from the viewpoints of three women and connected by the orders from a flower shop, this is a feel-good novel about finding the courage to open ones heart to love.

Khloe, the owner of Khloe’s Flower Shop, Connie, a lonely woman who creates a boyfriend who sends her flowers weekly and Gabby, a widow who really wants to find love once more in her golden years.

Online dating can be exciting and dangerous and one always worries about the kind of people one might meet, especially if they are not who or what they present themselves to be. 
I was especially worried about Gabby as things seemed to move so quickly for her and Harry seemed too good to be true.

Connie's coworkers seemed more like the mean girls in high school. They really need to grow up!
The most unbelievable part of her story is that she met a man with the name she had already made up.

While none of the difficulties these women had to overcome seems shattering to an outsider, from their own point of view I understand how these hurdles seem  traumatic to overcome.
