A Bouquet of Love (Weddings by Design #4) by Janice Thompson
She didn't expect to fall in love--but roses aren't the only thing blooming on Galveston Island
Cassia Pappas has found herself in a nearly impossible situation. She wants to spend her time immersed in her new job at a Galveston Island floral shop, arranging blooms and brightening occasions with her lovely creations. But her boisterous Greek family--especially her father--has other ideas. They've all relocated to Galveston to open up a new family restaurant located on the Strand--directly across the street from iconic pizza place Parma John's--and they want Cassia's full participation.
To make matters worse, as Cassia is trying to develop a strong professional relationship with Galveston's premier wedding coordinator, Bella Neeley, her own father is intent on stealing all of the Rossi family's faithful customers. Not exactly the best way to get into this former Rossi's good graces!
Still, at least Alex, that hot delivery guy from the nursery, is always hanging around the flower shop . . .

When Cassia Pappas arrives in town with her family, they arrive loud and noisy, especially her Babas, or Dad. He opens a Greek restaurant right across the street from our beloved Uncle Laz’s Parma John’s, and thinks he can drive the Italian restaurant out of business. He then discovers that the Rossi family owns most of the area, and he begins a feud, a little presumptuous, don’t you think?
What happens with this family is so funny, and yet you really can see it happening, and I loved the Mother with her make-up, and Babas costume, can just picture this, hysterical!
Loved the gift Cassia has with flowers and how God leads her to one in need to use this gift. She ends up at the right place at the right time, and I see God’s hand in this, and there is the beginning to the answers of the big problem that exists.
We also have a bit of romance in store for Cassia when through her work at the flower shop she meets Alex, a half Greek Adonis, who happens to own with his family a flower farm. Will Babas allow a relationship?
Come along and see how the feud between the Pappas family and the Rossi Family ends up, there are so many funny happenings. I can’t wait for the next one.
There is a note at the end of the book of a personal nature from Janice, and please pray for her and her family, they have not had an easy year.
