Sweet Blooms by Dean Hodel


He is recovering from the tragic loss of his wife. She is looking for a new start in her hometown. Can they move past their pre-conceived ideas of each other to discover the healing recipe of love at Sweet Blooms Cafe?

Victoria Tucker loves everything about her video game design job. Everything that is, except for the constant workplace harassment. When her grandfather dies, going home to grieve and regroup seems like the best option. She wants to keep her dream job, but not at any price.

Mark Seiman isn't exactly sure how he wound up working at Sweet Blooms Café. He came in once to view his late wife's art work on display, and now he's spent three years selling cupcakes and bouquets for the sweetest trio of little old ladies anyone could imagine. When his boss's granddaughter moves back home, he does everything he can to keep his distance and hold on to his wife’s memory, but every day with Victoria seems like a chance at a fresh start.

“Such a short sweet story!! I read it within a day. The characters were perfectly written. And the story itself was perfection.”
