When Mindy MacPherson’s friends suspect cheating in a local gardening competition the three decide to investigate for themselves. What Mindy doesn’t expect to find inside the greenhouse is Javier Morales with whom she’d had a one night stand the year before. Javier studying horticulture gets pulled into their investigation and Mindy and Javier revisit the old flames between them.
I’d have to say with this novella there was a good 75% of it that I loved. The interaction with Mindy and her friends on their adventure was one of those lovely tales that could get you laughing.
However, I didn’t enjoy Mindy’s personality when it came to her relationship and some situations involved. And then the actual relationship itself also didn’t get much attention in the book, it felt as if everything was rushed to an ending as soon as it started really which I suppose is the novella curse, just not enough depth in some being shorter books.
Overall, 3.5 stars for Cross Springs In Bloom from me. I’d certainly read more about these characters and little town in the future.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
