Lady Raven RAVE!
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

A wonderful, fully realized short story. Amy is a young widow trying to find her way. Dave delivers a boquet of flowers to her each month. Slowly, a connection builds. Can they find love? Sit down with a cup of tea and savor this short story.

A few months after the untimely death of her husband, Mike, the first lower delivery inexplicably arrives at the door of his grieving widow. “Seeing the bouquet for the first time took me by surprise and brought back fond memories of Mike proposing at a quaint picnic spot near a fountain surrounded by flowers.”

I truly appreciate how the author weaves this story. Its brief scope is deceivingly simple. Lia Fairchild does it with the honest tone of a first-person narration, and with a skillful, te

This popped up in my goodreads feed and two things sold it in the review I read. It was a romance and it was short. Normally I like my romances longer, developing over time, but this one changed my mind.
Special Delivery is just beautiful. I'm sure some would say it's predictable, but so what? I think reading this and what I hoped to be the case and having it actually happen made me love it even more. So predictable maybe, but done oh-so-right. It was magical. Beautiful and man, what woman in th

“Special Delivery”, de Lia Fairchild, é adorável. Trata-se de uma pequena história que aborda questões como a continuação da vida após a perda de um ente querido. Ultrapassar essa dor por vezes é complicado, mas a personagem Amy Johnson irá conseguir fazê-lo através das flores. A verdade é que não são apenas as flores que a trazem de volta à vida e ao campo dos sentimentos, mas também Dave, o homem das entregas. Se fosse uma história um pouco mais longa, creio que teria resultado na perfeição e ...more

Special Delivery is a touching short story by Lia Fairchild about a widow who finds that in the year following her husband’s death her life remains full of the flowers he so often presented her with. Amy wins a competition to have a bouquet delivered every month for a year and – in the aftermath of her husband’s untimely death – finds comfort in the regular deliveries, not only in the form of the flowers but also in caring delivery man Dave.

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

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

I Love Books Review

if your looking for a quick sweet read then look no further. It took me only about twenty minutes to finish this short story. It would be perfect for reading while waiting at a doctor's office or on a lunch break or just a quick read before bed. Lia write such sweet wonderful stories and I just loved her full length book In Search of Lucy. If you like clean love stories than Lia is the perfect author for you.

Shirley Worley
This was a delightful and heartwarming short love story. Make that - a very short love story, and I actually wanted it to continue. Love the characters and the gentle way the author drew you into the emotional framework of the story in such a short amount of time. I would definitely recommend!

Short & sweet.

Interesting concept, reminded me of PS I Love You. The story is about a widow who enjoys flowers and won a contest she never entered for free flowers. in the end it was a little creepy to me.
