4 Stars

Brief Description:

Tessa Gregory is nothing if not tenacious. Denied a position as a horticulturalist at prestigious Como Park in Saint Paul, she is not above a little benevolent deception in order to get the park superintendent to change his mind and hire her. She plans to infiltrate the world of wealthy and influential people in hopes of drumming up financial support for a world-class conservatory. But before she can put those plans into action, she meets Reese King, a handsome gardener at Como Park--and a major distraction. Still, Reese might be the key to achieving her dream. But is his goal to help her . . . or to capture her heart?

My Opinion:

What a beautiful cover.  This is the third installment in The Gregory Sisters series, but to me it was a stand alone story.  The author brings us a beautiful romance interlaces with a wonderful message.  We are introduced to the charming Tessa Gregory who will keep the reader entertained and guessing what her next move will be. 
Reese King is a very likeable character and soon you fall in love with him.  He is fascinated with Tess and her creativity.  As a friendship develops and deepens each character begins to question their faith and trust in each other. 
I loved how the author described the beautiful flowers and gardens.  It made me want to go outside and get to work on mine.  I enjoyed how she weaved faith through out the story and shows that we must always trust in God to see us through difficult times.  When trouble comes your way do you try to work it out yourself, put your faith in someone else to  get answers for you or do you turn it over to God. 
This is a great story that I would recommend to anyone.  If you love historical fiction, gardening, or romance this is the book for you. 
I received this book from Revell for a honest opinion without bias as stated above.

For as long as I can remember, I loved writing. I even dreamed in plots. I also grew up attending antique auctions nearly every weekend, so history was as much a part of my life as chores on our farm in Iowa, reading books, and playing with Barbies.
So, writing historical romances fit perfectly. Times may change, the style of clothes, the way we speak, but the common threads that unite us remain the same. Couples fall in love. Injustices
happen. We fight for what we believe in. We struggle. We endure. We grow.
