A Bouquet of Love

Cassia Pappas has found herself in a nearly impossible situation. She wants to spend her time immersed in her new job at a Galveston Island floral shop, arranging blooms and brightening occasions with her lovely creations. But her huge Greek family–especially her father–has other ideas. They’ve all relocated to Galveston to open up a new family restaurant location on the Strand– directly across the street from the Rossis’ popular pizza place–and they want Cassia’s full participation.

To make matters worse, as Cassia is trying to develop a strong professional relationship with Galveston’s premier wedding coordinator, Bella Neeley, her own father is intent on stealing all of the Rossi family’s faithful customers. Not exactly the best way to get into Bella’s good graces!
Still, at least Alex, that hot delivery guy from the nursery, is always hanging around the flower shop . . .
Fan favorite Janice Thompson gives readers one more romp with Bella, Galveston, and the bustling wedding biz in the final installment of her popular series. Anyone who loves quirky families, loads of laughter, and tender romance will find themselves hooked.


Janice Thompson is a seasoned romance author and screenwriter. An expert at pulling the humor from the situations we get ourselves into, Thompson offers an inside look at the wedding business, drawing on her own experiences as a wedding planner. She is the author of the hugely popular Weddings by Bella series and the Backstage Pass series, as well as Picture Perfect, The Icing on the Cake, and The Dream Dress. She lives in Texas.

Review by Blanche Mancuso

This book is the fourth in the Weddings by Design series. Fear not as this book can be read as a stand alone novel. Yes, you could say that I really loved this book. This was a rollicking story that took place during the era of Judy Garland. A nice surprise was that every chapter started with a Judy Garland song. I enjoyed the Greek influence in this story as I had friends who were both Greek and Italian. I am Italian. So reading this book really spoke to me with my own relationships and brought back such good, fond, memories for me. In fact, I was kind of sad when this story ended. I did not want it to end. Also, I liked the Christian aspect in the story. It helped cement my faith in God even more by letting him be my guide through the Holy Spirit. What a great world it will be when God reigns supreme.
