Meeting Nick was truly an accident—but Amelia finds that he’s one of the few people she can count on.
Amelia Woods is a small-town wallflower who inherited her grandmother’s flower shop. Despite her success in business, her love life has ground to a halt. And then her temptation to spy on her ex-boyfriend’s wedding leads her to a horrifying fender-bender—with Nick, the groomsman who happens to be her ex’s new brother-in-law.
Meanwhile, William, Amelia’s younger brother, has proposed to his girlfriend. Amelia would be excited except she has evidence that the fiancée is not who she says she is. How can she be supportive and yet be the protective big sister too? It seems Nick is the only one available for any advice-giving, and he’s pretty good at it—and pretty fun to talk to. Amelia and Nick continue online conversations about everything, but always lingering in Amelia’s mind is the fear that he’ll realize who she is and what she was doing at the church that day of the accident.
As Amelia works to craft the perfect flower arrangements for other people—including a ninety-year-old “fairy godmother” named George—she begins to wonder if real love is better than the dream. And if it is, will Nick still be interested when he learns who she is?

I usually dislike novellas on a get that thing away from me level! Occasionally, one slips past me so, I read it and then toss it aside for something with a bit more meat to it. However, this one kept my attention and was good for a quick, cute read. Katie Ganshert makes reading this novella effortlessly. This short read flows and she knows how to reel in her readers. These characters will make you fall in love with them over and over again. This is simply one of those feel good cutesy reads and you’ll finish it in no time. If you don’t like novellas that’s okay since I’m one of those people too but, I found this novella to be worth the read.
