Aimee (Getting Your Read On)
Have I ever said that I love Harlequin Heartwarming books? Ha! I really do. I love that I know exactly what I'm going to get- a sweet, clean romance.

I do believe this is an author that is new to me. I haven't read any of the other books in this series and now I really think I need to. I'm putting them on my TBR list for sure.

I loved Kady. There was something so human about her and her need to find acceptance and support from the people she loves. Kady made some bad decisions earlier in life, but

This is Book 3 in the series, but it can stand alone. At least, I think it can, because I haven't read the others and I didn't feel lost at all. Speaking of that, I need to read these others because I really savored this book and would love to get to know some of the other characters better. This cover is perfect!

Kady is trying to convince her parents that she has what it takes to take over the family floral business, as they are ready to retire and sell. Although she is determined to win the an

Why did I not know about this series before now? This is the third book and I haven't read the first two. What rock have I been hiding under to have missed them?

This is a romance/suspense book. Kady wants to succeed with her family's florist shop. She knows that by expanding their clientele into the wedding market she can help the business flourish. Her plans are to enter and the convention design competition to attract brides.

Of course, the when you are not looking or expecting romance, it se

It was the title that did me in first and from the moment Dylan met Kady, I was hooked and cannot stop to keep on reading.

Love the mix of little bit of suspense and romance in the book and beside, who could resist a determined girl like Kady who loves flowers and want to keep her store after her parents want to shut it down?

Almost want to be mad that at the end Kady lost again to Dylan's mother, Jasmine at the flower competition. Really rooting for her to win first place.

A delightful book to rea

I have been getting into wedding books lately mainly due to the story lines and also who doesn't like a wedding?! This book is slightly different from your normal wedding book as it features a DEA agent and a sweet woman who still hasn't found the one to be waiting for her at the end of the alter.
Kady is someone who wants a happy ending but she hasn't got it yet, she is trying her very best to make the most of the floral business that belongs to her family. Trying to explore more options she br

4 1/2 STARS!

In this fourth book of her “The Business of Weddings” series, Tara Randel lands us smack dab in the middle of an action packed adventure! There’s romance, there’s deceit, there’s family drama, there’s criminal activity … what more could we want?

Florist Kady Lawrence is in it to win it at this years bridal bouquet competition at the florist’s convention! She’s got to save The Lavish Lily which has been in her family for generations, but to do so, she has to prove that she’s capable of

A sweet romance with a touch of romantic suspense--a fun read!

I enjoyed Kady and Dylan's story--a florist and a DEA agent don't seem like an obvious couple, but they definitely worked! I liked watching them fall for each other--and really liked watching poor Dylan getting sucked into helping his mother and Kady at the big florist convention (especially when his mom takes pictures and sends them on to his three--three!--brothers! Poor guy :))

The suspense part was nicely plotted; things fall into

THIS WAS A DELIGHTFULLY, REFRESHINGLY, "CLEAN" STORY ABOUT A WOMAN OBSESSED ABOUT WINNING A FLORAL CONVENTION ENTRY. IT WASN'T JUST VANITY. SHE HAD A LOT DEPENDING ON IT. IT WOULD AFFECT THE REST OF HER LIFE!
I TOTALLY LOVED IT!
KADY WAS OFTEN PRESSURED INTO A RELATIONSHIP BY FAMILY AND FRIENDS...SHE DID NOT HAVE A GREAT TRACK RECORD IN CHOOSING QUALITY MEN TO BECOME INVOLVED WITH. NOW AT THE AGE OF 30, THIS WAS THE LAST THING ON HER MIND...HOWEVER WHEN A HANDSOME SON ARRIVES ON THE SCENE AS AN ES

This is a terrific story. I look forward to reading more in The Business of Weddings. I am a new reader to Tara Randel and I loved her quick style of writing. This story moved fast, there was a lot of love and action. True to the Heartwarming storylines, there's no sex, but there certainly was a lot of temptation. Tara builds the excitement throughout the story with a dramatic ending. The reader certainly falls for Dylan Matthews and cheers for them at the end. There is also a lot of thriller in ...more

I loved reading The Bridal Bouquet! The characters were well written and I liked almost all of them, with the exception of the ones you aren't supposed to like.

The romance between Kady and Dylan was so sweet! I loved watching them getting to know each other and see their feelings for each other grow.

Dylan's brothers were also a lot of fun and wished there were more scenes with them, since I loved every scene with them. Needless to say, I hope that they will someday have their own stories.
