This was a very very very short read but also very cute. Amy was delighted to know she has won flowers to be delivered once a month for a year. It came at a time when she lost her husband so they did cheer her up. Dave delivers the flowers to Amy each month; he also looks forward to seeing her. As time goes on Amy and Dave enjoys each others company until the last month of her delivery. At the end of the delivery period Amy discovers a secret.

This was so cute, I would probably read this each tim...more

Beautiful and man, what woman in th...more

The story intersects the point at which Amy’s year of f...more

I read two books by Lia this February and both were GREAT choices for Feb/Valentine reads!

This story is fun, sweet, touching, and short - what more could a reader want from a romantic, short story?

Something that equally struck and impressed me while reading this story is the ability of a romance writer to take something different, something that in real life might even seem weird and make it romantic and cute. Lia does that in this story and I think it takes a talented writer and great imaginati...more

This was a perfect Saturday afternoon read! I love a sweet romantic read and I'm a big fan of short stories... This was a quick, feel good read that I thoroughly enjoyed! Can't wait to read more from this author!

This is a sweet, clean short romance. I really enjoyed the story. I highly recommend this book to all who live good, clean romance.

this short story by Lia Fairchild is sweet and poignant with a surprise twist at the end! i loved it!
This is such a beautiful and touching story. Exactly what romance should be. Sweet, melting chocolate, where's my Kleenex kinda love story. What a daydream. I really enjoyed it.
This was a cute novel. Very short, would have enjoyed even more if the author would have made longer. Romantic
