Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop

Rate this book
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.

descriptionVery pretty cover. It's a good representation of the stories found within. The composition is good for the most part. I think the graphics behind the title is a tiny bit too large and I would have moved the "CARDS FROM" down a bit and the "FLOWER SHOP" up a bit so that "KHLOE'S" was overlapping them.description

descriptionThis was a sweet chick-lit book. Three separate stories all connected by one flower shop.

Khloe and Derick...A flower shop owner that has been hurt and a sports attorney that is keeping secrets. I liked this one. I understood why Khloe acted the way she did and to be honest I didn't think the secret needed to be a secret, but like I said I found their story enjoyable.


Gabby and Harry...both widowers taking a chance on online dating and finding love for the second time. This one was my favorite of the trio. It was just a sweet romance about two people who have lost their spouses and are taking a chance on finding love again. No angst. No misunderstandings. Just a super sweet story.

Connie and Walt...An office worker who has made up a boyfriend to make her feel special and the man she finds online. This was my least favorite of the trio of stories. I thought Connie came off a bit too sad and desperate. Sending herself flowers and other things to make it look like she had a boyfriend. I also thought Walt acted a bit over the top when he found out about her secret.

Overall though this was an enjoyable way to spend a couple hours.description

When I first read the book description of ‘Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop’ I knew I needed to read this book. This book sounded like a fun romantic feel-good read, and at times I really like books like that.

In ‘Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop’ we read the stories of three different woman who are all in a way connected to Khloe’s Flower Shop. There is Khloe, the owner of Khloe’s Flower Shop. There is Connie, a lonely woman with an imaginary boyfriend. And Gabby, a widow who really wants to start living her life again. These woman are all very different but they all have in common they really want to find love.

‘Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop’ is the perfect book to read when you’re in need of a feel-good story. The story is very cliché and predictable but it still makes you want to keep on reading because the characters are just so nice and loveable. The romance stories are just way too good to be true, but I didn’t really expect more by reading the book description so it worked perfectly for me.

From the three stories, I liked Khloe’s story the most. I loved how she was this hardworking, self-made woman and I loved how strong she seemed to be. The romance between her and Derek felt the most true to me and I loved reading their story.
Connie’s story was definitely nice too, but she was just so awkward and really didn’t care much about herself. And although I definitely enjoyed reading about Gabby and Harry, I felt like their story was the most unreal one. I just didn’t feel their chemistry. But I did love the way Gabby became a part of Harry’s family.

Overall this was a nice story that definitely made me feel-good. The writing was very easy to follow, and very descriptive. And I really enjoyed my getting-away moment while reading this book.

Though I'm not a flower person per se, I have always thought it would be pretty awesome to write the little cards that come with the flowers as you spread joy throughout the world. Cards from Khloe's Flower Shop is a women's fiction story that tells readers the story and follows the lives of several women as they find their way back to love. We have Khloe who is the owner of the flower shop who thought she had met the one, only to have him cheat on her. Can Khloe let Derek Thomas into her heart or will she find herself retreating when she discovers he is keeping secrets from her? Gabby's husband has passed away, and her friends at Scrabble have been telling her to get into Internet Dating, what happens when she takes the leap and meets a lovely widower named Harry? Can Gabby allow herself to move forward with Harry without feeling guilty as she thinks about her husband who passed? Connie has always felt like the Ugly Stepsister of her Cinderella tale and so to make herself feel better she has made up a boyfriend called Walt Goldman. What will happen though when she starts to fall for a real guy called Walt Goldman, and her fantasy/reality lives crash head-on? Will her fantasy cause her to lose what she has in real life or will her real-life Walt Goldman be forgiving and Connie gets her HEA and Cinderella ending after all? Overall, Cards from Khloe's Flower Shop was a sweet romance read about finding love and happiness and overcoming loss and grief and that sometimes love will find you when you are least expecting it.

I need to start this review by pointing out that halfway through reading the story, I bought a copy for my friend because I had a feeling she would enjoy it too.

Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop is a sweet and romantic story throughout. I can tell that a lot of love was put into it. The dating scenes reminded me of when my husband and I first got together.

I liked all three of the main characters. They were relatable and I cared about what happened to them. This made it easy to get caught up on the story and keep on reading.

The only thing that kept this book going from four to five stars was that most of the story was too happy-go-lucky. I was especially waiting for one of the characters to have a conflict since their life seemed so perfect once they met a man. I don't purposely wish bad things on people, but I like for characters to have a challenge to make their happy ending that much more worth it. I only felt that was happening for the character who struggled through a good part of the story and was most sympathetic towards her. Even so, some things fell into place for her too easily at a certain point. Khloe's flower business even seemed too perfect. I would have liked to see something happen with that, like she'd be in a position to have to save the flower shop or a major client could have been stolen by a competitor. It felt like a fairy tale in some ways and I only wish stuff like that could happen for people in real life! It was like they all had fairy godmothers without even knowing it.

Overall, it was a nice escape read with all the drama going on in the world. Almost like the book equivalent of comfort food.

In case a casting director is looking....
Khloe: Alison Sudol (After seeing her in Fantastic Beasts, I couldn't picture anyone else!)
Sharon: Brooklyn Decker
Gabby: Diane Keaton
Connie: Mackenzie Davis (The character she played on Black Mirror makes her perfect for this role.)
Derek: Stephen Amell
Harry: Richard Jenkins
Walt: Scott Eastwood

Khloe has her own flower shop. Her best friend Sharon helps her with the deliveries and the customers. Khloe has been burned in the past, so having a succesfull shop is enough for the time being. Her business is booming and Khloe can hardly keep up with all the orders she's getting. She always uses flowers from local people so she's not the only one who benefits from her success. When Derek walks into the store, Khloe can't deny that she's interested in this gorgeous man. Will he be who she needs to overcome her past betrayal?

Cards From Khloe's Flowershop follows several women in their search for love:

You'll get to know Connie who has created her own imaginary man. Connie orders flowers every week and has them delivered at work, so that she can read the cards out loud to her coworkers. Connie wonders if finding true love will ever happen for her. She searches on the internet for a man who resembles Walt, the man she has invented. Connie finds someone who is everything she ever envisioned for herself. When the real Walt finds out why Connie sought him out will he be able to forgive her?

Gabby has lost her husband after a long marriage. She's devastated but has found comfort and support with her friends. Love isn't limited by age and Gabby decides to try online dating, hoping to find love again. Gabby is a fun and warm person and I loved how she interacts with people. She feels guilty about moving on and I can imagine that it can't be easy being on your own after such a long marriage. I was really happy for her when I read about how she slowly gets ready to start dating again. Will she have her second chance at love?

Cards From Khloe's Flowershop is a very sweet and uncomplicated read. Flowers will bring comfort in times of sadness and will make people happy during the good times. I loved the different stories and how they were all connected through Khloe's shop. Age is nothing but a number and it warmed my heart to read about Gabby, who's searching for love at an older age. Isabella Louise Anderson's writing is realistic and I could sympathize with all of the main characters without any difficulties. She has a nicely flowing writing style, which made me fly through the pages. I absolutely loved this heartwarming story.

Khloe Harper was just that woman that felt deep and shared too much of herself. She loves her family and friends and her flower shop. She loves giving that small gift of love, thoughtfulness to others. Love and life has hit Khloe hard once before but now Derek Thomas comes in to her world and make her think twice about romance. She thinks that it would be a chance with him. But as life would have it doubt, fears, worry and old insecurities brings clouds her way.

I found that best thing about this read was that it was not just solely focused on Khloe and Derek. There was a cast of other characters, Gabby, Connie, Harry and in a sense Walt. They each allowed you to see in to their lives and the way that Khloe’s Flower Shop impacted them in some way. I enjoyed a great deal that this was not just a romance it was what women face on a daily basis. To love. To hurt. To worry. To feel rejected or accepted. To survive. To live. To move on.

This was a beautiful portrayal of women and how they cope with life as it comes at them. With love or no love. See how the simple gift of a card or two could change the way one or more women look upon themselves and see the world in a new light. If you are looking for a feel good women’s fiction with a touch or two of romance, family and friendship I recommend that you pick up Cards from Khloe’s Flower Shop.

In Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop, author Isabella Louise Anderson weaves a delightful tale that follows three women's journey of self-discovery and finding an unexpected second chance at love.

Thirty-one year old flower shop owner Khloe Harper has trouble trusting men after her heart was broken by a betraying ex-boyfriend. But when sports / entertainment attorney Derek Thomas enters her shop, it has her thinking that maybe it is time to give love another chance.

Sixty-five year old widow Gabriella "Gabby" Lewis lost her husband Charlie to a sudden heart attack. After forty-five years of marriage and moving past the grief of losing her soulmate, Gabby still believes in love and wants to be in love again. Gabby signs up on the Second Chances online dating website and makes an unexpected connection with lonely widower Harry Hoffman.

Medical data entry clerk Connie Albright has always felt like an outsider and ignored by everyone. Connie has major self-confidence issues and has never experienced being in love. Connie has created an imaginary boyfriend named Walt Goldman and sends bouquets of flowers to herself at work once a week, in order to get her co-workers to notice her. When her mean co-workers want to see a picture of Walt, Connie has no option but to continue with the charade, so she signs up on an online dating site searching for the perfect Walt Goldman. When Connie connects with Walt, her fantasy becomes a reality until the truth behind her charade is revealed leaving Connie to figure out how to get back her happily ever after.

Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop was such a fun novel to read! I enjoyed following Khloe, Gabby, and Connie's journeys as they each discover how to open up their hearts to serendipity and the unexpected chance at finding love. Just when you think each of the women's journeys to finding love will be all hearts and roses, the author throws a wrench in the mix with enough drama to keep you turning the pages. But the best part of this delightful book is how each of the women's stories are interwoven with Khloe's creation and delivery of wonderful bouquets of flowers and the special personal messages on the cards that speak volumes. While I enjoyed all three stories, I felt the most connection with Gabby and Harry's story, it is a heartwarming and downright feel good story that simply made me smile from ear to ear. From taking a risk, beginning again, and finding self-confidence, Khloe, Gabby, and Connie will each discover that by learning to open up their hearts, they could find hope, true love, and happiness.

Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop is a wonderful novel about finding love and happiness that will leave a smile on your face.

This book centers around a flower shop. The owner and some of her customers are experiencing new love.

This was a book that I would describe as true romance. It’s something that you can see happening in real life. Some stories are super sweet with no problems. Others have drama that are normal with some relationships.

I found myself engrossed in this book wanting to see how it ends. Each of the stories are different and unique but full of love and hope.

To me a good book is when I mentally talk to the characters and I did time and time again in this book. This is the first book I’ve ready by this author. I will have to see if she’s written any others.

I received this book for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this book are 100% my own.

Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop by Isabella Louise Anderson
3 stars
M/F Romance stories
Triggers: Death
I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

This has three very distinct stories. Khloe, Connie and Gabby.

Khloe and Derek's story is somewhat convoluted. While I can understand Khloe's reservations with truthfulness, I found that I sided more with Khloe than Derek. It seems like such a silly thing to be dishonest about. I really liked how much pride Khloe put in to her store and how her story was more about her seeing to other people's happiness.

Connie and Walt's story was more believable, I thought. Despite the deception that went on, I found that Connie's coworker was horrible and easy to hate. Then, when things really were kind of looking down for Connie, I loved that she put her big girl panties on and kept on trucking through life. She didn't let the catty woman get to her, or even the mean lady at the gym get her down. In the end, she got the happy ending she wanted.

Gabby and Harry were a story of another generation. After the death of each of their respective spouses, they find love online -which is quite new for each of them. I loved how Harry's family accepted Gabby in without questions. They just accepted that love could happen more than once for their family member.

Although each of these stories was a HEA, I did find that the bouncing back and forth was somewhat distracting. Also, the conflicts in Connie and Khloe's stories seemed forced - that they were finding issues where there weren't any.

To love or not to love ...

Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop is perhaps one of the most memorable stories I have ever read. The characters are a huge plus, but the main star was the wisdom hidden within this profound story. Love in all it's stages is put on display through the eyes of a flower shop owner, a widow and an outsider. Each woman has to confront her own insecurities in order find happiness. From taking risks, to beginning again and dealing with grief, Isabella Louise Anderson tugs on the heart strings while inspiring women everywhere and creating stories that encompass love, hope and second chances. Worth it's weight in gold. Found another author for my one click pile.

I won't lie but this cover drew me in. Once I saw the cover, I HAD to read this book and the story did not disappoint at all! I enjoyed everything about this book. I could relate to each character's story and didn't have any issues in the transitions with the narrator. What a delightful read for the Valentine's weekend!

WOW - this is the first book that I have read by Isabella Louise Anderson and OMG OMG OMG it was soooooooooooooooooo good!!!

One of the main characters in the book is Khloe Harper - she owns a Flower shop and is known for the wonderful messages that she includes on the cards that go out with her flowers. But the book just isn't about Khloe. The chapters are about several different people that live in the small town. So it is really like reading 5 or 6 stories in one book. I don't write spoilers --- but OMG, this has got to be one of the best love stories that I have read in a while!!!! And believe me when I say that once you start reading this book, you will want to stay with it to the end.

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.

Oh, dear. I'm afraid this book just didn't do it for me. I received a copy in exchange for my honest thoughts and, as much as I hate to share thoughts that are less than stellar, I did say I'd be honest.

I loved the premise. And the set-up was interesting, at first. Three different women at different places and stages of their lives. Khloe, focusing on her flower shop in the wake of heartache; Gabby, learning to live and love after the loss of her husband; and Connie, who feels unattractive and unwanted and makes up a handsome boyfriend who lavishes her with weekly floral arrangements. However, as I read, there was a feeling of desperation that crept through the writing. The undertone of having to pair these women up with too-good-to-be-true-and-certainly-better-than-they-deserved-or-ever-dreamed-they-would-find men in order for them to be complete. And that desperation tarnished my feelings for all three of them, Gabby least of all, but still a little. In the end, I just didn't like any of the women - or their stories.

My thanks to the author and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read and review. I'm sorry it wasn't one I enjoyed more.

Khloe Harper is 31 years old and the owner of her own flower shop business which is beginning to become busier. Her life is going well except for in the love department as she is still jaded from her ex-boyfriend Josh cheating on her. Yet when a handsome man, Derek Thomas, comes into the shop to order flowers could her luck be turning around?

Gabriella Lewis is 65 years old and her husband, Charlie, recently passed away. Gabriella gets the courage to join an online dating service which introduces her to Harry Hoffman. Will Gabriella allow herself to fall in love twice?

Connie Albright is tired of being made of fun of for her weight and "frumpiness". She begins to send herself flowers at work once a week from a man named Walt Goldman in order to gain the respect of her fellow co-workers, especially Nicola and Mia. Yet when Connie actually meets a man who is everything she wants will her past secrets explode and force her to lose any chance of happiness?

I liked this book and although the three ladies lives revolve in and out of Khloe's flower shop each lady has her own story to tell. I thought it was interesting how all three ladies slept with their respective men so fast with some of the trust issues that a couple had.

I liked Khloe and understood why she had a hard trusting Derek with her past with Josh. Derek was keeping things from Khloe and I understood why she was so upset, yet at the same time the two just met. I could definitely see all the sides but this book has everyone jumping into bed so fast that it's no wonder there were some trust issues. I loved Sandra, Khloe's best friend and employee. She definitely earned her pay this book!

I think Gabriella was my favourite as she knew how limited time was and once she realized how much she cared about Harry she went for it. She felt like Charlie was good with her moving on and being happy and this character was completely drama free.

I think part of me could definitely relate to Connie the most with her self-esteem issues and trying to be liked. I found it amusing that there was actually someone out there with her made up boyfriends name. I was so mad at Connie for letting the work bullies control so much of her life until she realized what it cost her. I'm glad she was able to turn everything around and start living for herself instead of everyone else. I did love how everything fell into place for her at the end.

A fantastic read that you won’t want to end.

Follow Khloe and her customers, Connie and Gabby, as they search for love. The story is centered around Khloe's Flower Shop where Khloe and her best friend Sharon get to know their customers through the messages that go out with their orders.

Khloe’s last relationship ending badly and she has a hard time trusting men. Her mother is anxious for Khloe to settle down and have children, which drives Khloe a little crazy. When Mr. Perfect comes into the shop one day, Khloe decided maybe it is time to start dating again. But Derek has a secret that threatens to tear them apart soon after they start dating. Gabby is a widow who has only loved and been with one man in her life, her late husband Charlie. She ends up going on an internet dating site to find her new love. And, Connie desperately wants to be loved. To make her co-workers think she has a boyfriend, she sends herself flowers to work. But when one girl calls her bluff, she goes on a dating site looking for a man with the same name as the one she made up. This could be pure bliss or it could be a total disaster.

I really liked this book. When one of my friends recommended it to me, I knew it had to be good. Each of the women had different obstacles they needed to pass to find true love. I could relate to certain parts of the story too which made it even more interesting to me. This is one of those books that you won't forget when you're done reading it. It will stick with you and make you want more of each of the characters.

This book was exactly what I needed it to be after a long, stressful week of sick kids and things going haywire! Such a sweet, almost sappy, set of stories that just warmed my heart and made me smile. 

The epicenter of this story is a flower shop and everything kind of spawns from there as to who the book is about. Khloe owns the shop, and is a young thirties woman looking for love again. The whole book relates back to her and her shop, as we get to explore a few different types of second chance at love! Such a sweet and tender-hearted look at dating in the 21st century. 

I really seemed to connect to Gabby the most - as she was struggling with the loss of THE love of her life. I can't even imagine having to go through anything like that after being together for so long. Her story seemed to be the most believable as well as the most sweet in the end. I felt like Connie's story was just plain silly, but I liked her anyway. I feel like she and I could be friends in real life. I also felt like Khloe's issues with trust were some what unfounded when it came to Derek... but I feel like in the end, it all worked itself out. Expect some good HEA's.

Cards from Khloe's Card Shop is a totally escapist read. If you enjoy nothing more than to relax with a romantic novel then you will love this one. There are three stories running throughout the book and Khloe's pride and joy, her Flower Shop ties them all together. We have Khloe, who is nursing a broken heart and throwing herself completely into her Flower Shop. There is the vulnerable Connie whose self- esteem is at an all- time low and finally, the recently widowed Gabby who may be ready to move on to a new love.

All three story strands run concurrently and the pacing of all three works well. You are able to separate out the three stories and although at times there were few surprises with the plots, they are nevertheless, a heartwarming and enjoyable read. I was able to visualise the Flower Shop which is such an inviting backdrop for the three love stories.

In short: heartwarming romance by the (flower) bucketload.

Thanks to the author for a copy of the book.

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.

Khloe runs a flower shop that she loves and works with her best friend. Her mom really wants her to find someone to be with so she can have grandchildren that she can still chase after. Khloe doesn't have time for children right know as her business is keeping her busy. Then she met Derek. Gabby is a widow and she wants to find someone again. Connie sends herself flowers from kholes shop saying they are from her boyfriend
The characters in this story are very well developed. This book is well written and the reason I gave it four stars is because it took me awhile to get into this book. I look forward to reading more books by Isabella

This story follows three different women as they delve into new relationships. Each woman has her own baggage from the past that may prevent her from opening herself up to her new man. All three men had their appeal as well.

Overall the story was well-written and flowed well. I enjoyed reading the multiple perspectives and how the three women's lives interconnected. Gabby's story ended up being my favorite, which I hadn't expected going in. Khloe and Connie each had some irritating moments regarding how they handled situations, but it made the book fun to read to see if they could climb back out after their mistakes.

All in all, this was an enjoyable read. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading women's fiction, chick lit, or contemporary romance.

Cards from Khloe's Flower Shop is really 3 stories in 1! And I was luckily enough to be able to review it all for you. So let me tell you some more about the story.

Khloe is the owner of the flower shop and the character that ties everyone together, but Khloe wants love too, even though she her heart has been betrayed in the, she takes a risk with the very successful Derek Thomas! And everything is going well until she finds out that Derek has kept a secret from her!

Our second story is about Gabby; a widow, whom somehow allows her friends to talk her in to Internet dating! But Gabby meets Harry and falls in love, will guilt from her deceased husband stop her future happiness?

Lastly, there is Connie, who feels like a wallflower! But to get a particularly spiteful coworker off of her back, Connie begins to send herself flowers, with notes from her imaginary boyfriend Walt Goldman. But when she is pushed to produce this boyfriend, Connie finds one, but does it end up in true love? Or disaster??

Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop is a sweet tale of second (and first ) chance love and the bravery of those women whom put themselves out there. I really like the characters and the writing was great. I did find the stories pace slow going and choppy. I will admit that I'm not a huge fan of books that jump backwards and forwards, like this one did, but overall it didn't spoil the tale.

I give Cards From Khloe's Flower Shop 4 stars

As a flower shop owner, thirty one year old Khloe Harper spends each day delivering love. That’s pretty ironic considering she has a hard time trusting men after her ex’s betrayal. But with the arrival of Derek Thomas into her shop, she starts to wonder if love may still be in the cards for her.

After losing her husband to a heart attack, sixty five year old Gabby is still hopeful to find love again. She joins an online dating service and, to her surprise, meets fellow widow Harry Hoffman. Will she get another chance at love?

Connie Albright has been a pariah most of her life. In the hopes of getting her co-workers to notice her, she creates a bogus boyfriend named Walt and sends flowers to her office from him. When asked to see a photo of Walt, Connie has no choice but to seek out a Walt. That’s when she joins an online dating service. But her plan doesn’t go as smoothly as she’d like and her world is thrown into disarray again.

Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop is a delightful story about stepping out of your comfort zone, new beginnings and discovering one’s self. It’s told through three very different characters, but ties into one very enjoyable story!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This was a book that followed the stories of three women centered around a flower shop as they search for love. Khloe, the shop owner, is finding love after a major breakup after some serious issues with her ex and truth. Following her story with Derek, I can completely understand and empathize with the rough spots they come across. In fact, I kind of understand her side more than I do Derek.
Then there is Walt and Connie....oh wow....there are no words how that storyline comes along. I found myself cringing, wincing....that storyline.... I can't say anymore without giving so very much away!
And finally there is the happiest of the three stories, the story of Gabby and Harry. It's a story that covers the older generation, where love isn't young, but the emotions are just as sweet, with more realism as age progresses. This is most likely the most hopeful of all the stories.
This book moves quickly, and just as it seems to start dragging, the twists to each of the stories happens and keeps you reading. I loved this book.

Real cute book, it has 3 stories in it and it starts with Khloe and her shop all she aims for is making people happy and smile. Khloe has a hard time with trusting and when Derek comes into her life,it makes her life complicated and things stand in the way to happiness.

Then there is Connie who has horrible, hateful co-worker, who will no stop at anything (*boy did I dislike that person) , will Connie still have her happy ending?

Last but not least the best stories of them all I think, Gabby and Harry found each other on later age, when both their spouses passed away, online! Very sweet story were family accepts the new love.

I liked each story although the last is my favorite, the first two had some conflicts in it, which made it some unreal to me, but the third story makes up for that!!

Cards From Khloe's Flower shop is a super sweet, very fast read. I loved following the different stories of Gabby, Connie and Khloe and by the end of the book, I felt as if all of these women were friends and we were just catching up on life. Each woman's story was emotionally gripping and just when you think they have each found their happily-ever-after, the author takes a hard turn you won't see coming. Looking for a sweet read that you can get lost in? Then this is the perfect story for you.
