As Love Blooms (The Gregory Sisters #3) by Lorna Seilstad

Tessa Gregory is nothing if not tenacious. Denied a position as a horticulturalist at prestigious Como Park in Saint Paul, she is not above a little benevolent deception in order to get the park superintendent to change his mind and hire her. She plans to infiltrate the world of wealthy and influential people in hopes of drumming up financial support for a world-class conservatory. But before she can put those plans into action, she meets Reese King, a handsome gardener at Como Park--and a major distraction. Still, Reese might be the key to achieving her dream. But is his goal to help her . . . or to capture her heart?

Against a lush backdrop of early twentieth century Saint Paul, Minnesota, Lorna Seilstad weaves a sweet and sassy story that is sure to please. Tessa's young romance opens like a rose, stealing readers' hearts and filling their senses with the intoxicating fragrance of dreams come true.

My Review

The third and final book in the Gregory Sister’s series, and I really hate for it to end. We are reunited with the whole family, and it is growing! Aunt Sam is being pursued, the sister’s are back, Charlotte, Hannah, and now we have Tessa ‘s story.
This one is also action packed and we are still trying to achieve woman’s rights, it is 1913 after all. Spunky Tessa is surely following in her sister’s footsteps, without even realizing it. She has decided she wants to enter into the horticulturist field and work at the prestigious Como Park in Saint Paul, MN.
When she is rejected for being a woman, a no no for sure, she is even willing to put on pants to work in the gardens. What an adventure she is about to partake in, and maybe a bit of romance, and you will wonder who is smitten here.
Page-turner her for sure, and I am sad to have this series end, loved being back in this time period. If you have not yet read the first two books in this series, be sure to do so, you won’t regret it.
I received this book through the Publisher Revell’s Blogger Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
