I really love a second chance type romance and I felt that this one would not only hit the spot but keep me on the tips of my toes while reading it.

G was great. She was funny and her passion of flowers really showed when she talked about them through out the book. You could feel the love she had for her job/hobby. She was so down to earth yet goofy that you can't help but love her.

Corbin is a blast from the past. He was super sweet and just wanted G to be happy. Totally a macho man but

This is the first book that I've read by this author and I will be reading more! Thank you for bind date for setting me up! This book was an "emotional cocktail" that will keep you guessing, while having you fall in love. This book was different from what I normally read, in a good way! It had a little bit of a mystery/suspense and romance. Georgina owns a flower shop, but starts receiving flowers on her porch in the morning and at night. Her high school crush, Corbin, comes

I absolutely loved this story, and the meaning of flowers. I never really thought about them before until this story.
I loved Georgina, how she goes for what she wants and I loved her job. She has a passion for flowers.
I loved Corbin, he is down to earth and always up for a good time. He cares and protects those he care for.
The meaning of flowers was brilliant in this story especially when you find everything out eventually who sends them.

I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review.

I thought this book was really sweet and enjoyable. I'm writing a shorter review than I normally would in hopes I don't spoil anything! In the beginning I had a bit of difficulty getting into it but once I got through the first few chapters I was hooked. Georgina is a florist in her small hometown. She works with her best friend, Sid, and sister, Trish. In the beginning of the book, Georgina begins receiving flowers on her doorstep. Each flower

This was a first for me from this author and I was introduced to her through Quirky Blind Date with a Book. It started out kind of slow and I wasn't sure I was going to like it but I ended up really enjoying this book. I will definably be reading more and can't wait to see where this series goes.

It was a story about flowers and meaning behind them. What do they mean to you and to her as she receives them from a mystery person left on her porch? Georgina is a florist

This book has it all and is definitely a must read. This is Rachel Walter’s second book but first to the New Adult scene and she pulled it off flawlessly. It’s not the typical NA either which I loved. Yes it has sex in it, but its not overly descriptive or ‘rough’ in any way. In my opinion it’s perfect for this story. It’s a book I can continue to read over and over, in fact I’ve read it twice already.

Were first introduced to Georgina at her flower shop. Love her, she’s not the typical girl you

"I know what they mean to me, but what do they mean to the person who left them? And who left them?" The story was hung up on this concept about the meaning and purpose of flowers. Meanwhile the characters were young and juvenile acting as if they still attended high school. The conversations were immature and catty with jealousy over the guys they dated in high school or the one they never dated. The story was missing excitement.

There were quite a few minor characters in the story. The main

Georgina is a beautiful young woman who owns her own florist shop and loves everything flowers and their meanings. Her and her sisters Trish lost their parents a few years ago so Georgina relies on her sister Sid her best friend of fifteen years and Breeze another way out there friend. One day she starts receiving different flowers on her porch all with different meanings. Another blast from the past shows up unexpectedly, Corbin Waylay. After being gone for years he

I had mixed feelings on this book. I really enjoyed the concept of the story, but the overall execution of it just didn't pan out for me. However, it was a good read and I'd recommend it if you like a good friends to lovers romance.

Corbin was my favorite character of the book. He was sweet and charming. He was in love with Georgina since they were in high school, but her never felt good enough for her. I could really connect to him, and the love he showed for her was beautiful.

I loved the

I really wanted to like this book. Unfortunately, it missed the mark for me.

This is a book about flowers and their meanings, yet it also has the second chance romance trope (which I truly enjoy!). But I feel the book was more focused on the flowers than anything else. In addition, I liked the flower types at the beginning of each chapter. However, I think the

Review: I was given a complimentary copy of A Message of Flowers by Reading bliss for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a sweet and enjoyable story. Georgina is a florist. Did you know that every flower has a meaning? I didn’t. Georgina knows flowers, she lives and breathes flowers. One day flowers start showing up on her porch. She has no idea who they could be from or why she is getting them. Corbin is an old friend with high school moves back to town and he stirs up trouble

I had read this book as a beta. It was a beautifully written story. What I loved the most about this book wasn't the romance or the plot (WHICH BY THE WAY IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM ALL NA), but really the characters: Georgina & Corbin. I also loved learning about what the message for each of the flowers mean.

Georgina is a strong and independent woman that knows what she wants. She's a bouquet shop owner that isn't easily intimidated by the likes of others. Corbin is a hard working,

Owner of flower shop, because it in her genes,and her whole ideal of thinking...
I also loved her lovefor flowers...and their meaning...
(in reminded when my husband would leave a single rose on my desk at work while we were dating)

She is receiving flowers and notes...from someone unknown
....later to be revealed in the story...

The characters are interconnected...what I didn't like they were a little immature for their age...

A sweet charming second chance story...enjoyable

I liked this enough, but there were a few things that bothered me.
1. Georgina says Sid is her best friend but she certainly doesn't treat him that way. She treats him as if he's an annoyance in her life and just an employee she feels nothing for. Their relationship shows nothing even remotely friendly, it seems strictly acquaintance.
2. The messenger. This could have really been something but the reveal was a massive let down.
3. There could have been so much to this this book, a bit of suspense

To Georgina Nickols (a florist) every flower has a meaning, and someone is secretly leaving flowers on her doorstep. When Corbin Waylay returns home after a six year absence, it could mean a new beginning if Sid, Georgina's friend and employee doesn't get in the way. This was a very sweet book, not my usual read, but I liked it. I liked the writing style. I felt that the characters were a little immature, but overall it was a good book.

Georgina and Corbin are soul mates that's for sure. Nothing worth having is easy though and they have to work through some things. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more from this author. I voluntarily reviewed a copy via Blind Date with a Book.

This book had alot of potential, but it was really drawn out. There was so much information that did not need to be in there. The story line was pretty good, it was a cute concept but it was just too much.

This was such a beautiful book!

G was great. She was funny, smart, totally bad a**. Corbin was the sweetheart. I hate how they fought and really thought that things with him and G were demolished when she called him out on the lie. But I was so glad to be wrong! I hated what happened with Sid, but was glad that he came and apologized to G. Breeze and Trish were phenomenal also.

If you love second Chance romances, this is the book for you!
