I loved this short and sweet romantic story. This is Lily's story. The tragedy of the past has been following her every where, there is no escaping the hurt, the betrayal, and the horror of everything that happened. David was gone and she was unable to forgive or forget.

Nicholas has his own demons but when he meets beautiful actress Lily he feels hope. Hope that he had lost three years ago. She is perfect and he is falling in love. Although he is too scared to do anything about it at least not w

I can honestly say that one of my most favorite things when it comes to Petra March's writing is the visual imagery her stories possess. While reading A Dream of Lilies: A Novella, I felt as if I were seeing the story play out in a series of watercolor paintings - moving their way across the pages in an abundance of colors.

While this story has sadness at its depths, there is healing that finds itself woven in-between the two main characters, Nicholas and Lily. If you've read Petra's previous sto

Petra March just has a way with words. Her books are almost "magic" the way she composes the beauty of a story is fantastic. This book is the third installment of this series and you need to read book 1 and 2 prior to this one. But don't worry.. You will love those books just as much.

Lily and Nicholas both have past tragedies, but they meet by accident. Is it fate is it good luck. What ever this chance meeting is, it is breathtaking. I love their attraction, I love their story and I loved their

Another emotionally driven read, beautifully written. Makes more sense if you have read the stories that come before, gives you a bit more context. Descriptive writing throughout but that is the authors style so if you have read the others you will be used to it. Shorter read this time aswell but just as good.

This story follows the lives of Lily and Nicholas. They have both been going on with their lives but hiding their feelings from traumatic events of their pasts. The deaths of people they lo

The 'A Touch of Cinnamon' series is getting better and better and, albeit this is a short novella, it is most definitely my favourite book so far. There is something so very poetic about the way it is written as it perfectly blends romance and tragedy. Although it is part of a series, it could definitely be read as a standalone as enough history of the characters is relayed as a refresher. For those of us who have read A Veil of Glass and Rain and All the Skies I Will Not See, this was another b ...more

For me, this novella was a bit strange. The whole story reminded me of the section on an exam, where you have to read the overly-descriptive narrative paragraph and find the grammatical errors. Now, I'm not saying that the book is full of's just really REALLY descriptive. The plot wasn't necessarily bad, but I felt as though it got lost among the details.

I only finished it because I am participating in the Carolyn Readers Choice Award. This novella (the best thing about it was the short length) was WAY too descriptive and nothing really happened. BORING!
