There’s no tussle like a family tussle, and author Jane Lacey-Crane uses this to mine every bit of tension, drama, and misunderstanding possible. Grace and Faith could not be more different—so they assume—and the result is constant sniping that permeates the first part of the book. Yes, there are times when both of them seem frustratingly unreasonable. However, this speaks to the Lacey-Crane’s expert abilities: she’s crafted two flawed characters who aren’t always easy to understand. They’re rea ...more

Set in London, Grace Watson works for Oliver Whyman floral designs, having two younger sisters Hope and Faith, her mum and dad who is also a florist, it runs in the family. Grace lives with her boyfriend David an estate agent buying a house in Windsor together. Throughout the book that is sharp and witty in places, the book focused on all the sister's lives. Such a breath of fresh air feeling, it was a delight to read. Loved it

This read wasn't at all what I expected and was full of twists and turns. The story focuses on three very different sisters Faith, Grace and Hope and we follow each of their journeys and one that they share together. It's primarily a story about family, with a generous dollop of romance and enjoyable side of humour. I found it difficult to put down! There was no slack, the pace kept me gripped and I found myself racing to the end to find out what happened. And I did like the colourful theme of f ...more

Loved the cover of this book but afraid the pettiness between grace hope and faith was rather tiresome I found the book not for me.

I love this story. Its packed full of so many emotions.

I smiled, I cried, I laughed and I was annoyed. There are so many different emotions in this book, anger, frustration, grief, sadness, love and so much more. This book has it all.

Sibling rivalry is a big thing in this novel. All three sisters have their own issues and have all really different personalities.

It took me a while to get to grips with who was who of the sisters but once I did I enjoyed it even more.

I really needed a tissue part

Grace, Hope and Faith all grew up with the family floral shop as the centerpoint of their lives, and while Grace and Hope did the obligatory ‘work for the firm’ jobs, Faith was left to her own devices which caused no end of strife for the sisters. But now things have taken a tragic turn, forcing Grace to return to the childhood home she left at sixteen never to look back. Adding to that, her youngest and most ‘spoiled’ sister Faith is back at home, and the two are constantly clashing.

A story of family, love, loss and new beginnings.
I loved the way this book started by introducing the Watson Sisters through their conversations and interactions with each other. Painting a picture of family with history, flecked with images of the past.
When tragedy strikes the story pivots, and it was this that made it into a page turner. I found myself rooting for each of the characters, feeling their highs and lows.
As with all stories there were threads I wanted developed further, like Faith

Where to start? The characters all have problems communicating with eachother and just keep getting frustrated or angry at eachother because they feel the other doesn’t get them, instead of telling what they are really feeling they juste bottles up everything and I got to a point I was frustrated at them and don’t get me start with Grace’s boyfriend.
The book deals with issue that does happen in real life, but I just can’t get into it I get too frustrated at them.

I’m 22% in the book and I juste

I really enjoyed this books. A story full of family troubles, but blood been thicker than water and family love conquers all. A story of family tragedy that had me close to tears. A story of different characters wanting different things from life. A story of picking up where you have left off and of friends for life by your your side. And a story of discovering how unhappiness and just living with what life throws can be transformed into happiness and a life that has been dreamt of. A fantastic ...more

This book took me a little my surprise as I read it as it wasn't the read I was expecting but in a good way.

The story is about three sisters, Faith, Hope and Grace and the story is told from of their POV. Part of the story is also about the families flower stall in the local market ran by their dad. What you get from this story is a story about family and their relationship with each other. However there is also the element of romance also thrown in my the author.

At times this was an emotional

Completely adored the sister relationships in this story, so completely real and believable, the bickering and arguing, but the love and devotion, just amazing relationships. It’s funny, but also emotional Bring tissues you’ll need them) and full of the importance of family and relationships. Just a beautiful story with wonderful writing, thoroughly and highly recommended

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion

This is a very enjoyable book to read, it is one of downs before ups but is well written and the author has really caught the spirit of life. This could so easily be a true tale and it made for a good read. I cried in several parts but others made up for that. I am giving this 5 stars and recommend everyone to read it.

Without giving the plot away, I will just say that this was a hard book to read. There were tissues on more than one occasion. It was not the normal light reading that I go for as a bedtime read. I did, however, want to know how it all panned out and whether the characters came to a resolution.
Thanks to the publishers and Net Galley for the ARC to review.

This was exactly the kind of book I needed to read right now - smooth, lovely writing, which also made me miss the UK (in a good way). Family drama focused on the relationship between sisters; their differences, arguments but also sense of humour. And I loved the colourful florist shop, which was at the centre of the story.
