I received a copy of LIKE A FLOWER IN BLOOM by Siri Mitchell from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review. I always love Siri Mitchell’s books, so I was thrilled to receive this. I haven’t missed one of hers yet.
This time she takes the reader to Victorian-era England. Bravo! That’s a dear sport for me, for I once worked at a Victorian Fair. Reading this novel was a bit like stepping back to that fun summer.
Siri Mitchell always rewards with an unusual plot – and a romance to make you coo. In this novel, young Charlotte Withersby loves helping her botanist father, but then her pesky uncle insists it is high time she married. Enter Edward Trimble, who is now going to help her father. Of course Charlotte must hatch some schemes to continue on as her father’s assistant, and along the way she takes a liking to dear Edward Trimble. This book includes plenty of humor, so be prepared if reading in it public. It elicited many a chuckle from me.
Overall, this is another top-notch novel from a master of historical romance, Siri Mitchell. I look forward to seeing what she comes out with next.
