FLOWERS IN DECEMBER TRILOGY: Flowers in December, Coming Home, Second Chance by Jane Suen – Review by Jennifer Gordon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this box set of Jane Suen’s ‘Flowers in December Trilogy’, containing the complete trilogy, ‘Flowers in December’, ‘Coming Home, and ‘Second Chance’. The stories follow the romance between Connor Norton and Mary Ann and the obstacles they faced. In the first book a grieving Connor returns to his small hometown which he has not visited for twenty years and he’s only back now because his mother has died. Connor now finds himself alone with only his elderly tabby cat Tom for company and then he meets Mary Ann whilst buying flowers. In ‘Coming Home’, it’s a Christmas story and Connor is back visiting his childhood home and meets Alana the estranged daughter of his next door neighbour but he also can’t forget Mary Ann. All three of them come together over a magical Christmas. In the final story, ‘Second Chance’, florist Mary Ann is happy running her successful flower shop but is still thinking of the grieving man she met four months ago when he came into her shop for flowers for his mother’s funeral, however she’s not seen Connor since. Then he returns leaving his job and his city life behind him and wanting to start a new life with Mary Ann who has moved on, however a well timed snowstorm brings the couple together giving Connor and Mary Ann a second chance.
This trilogy is a “clean and wholesome, small-town sweet romance”, which is best read as a series and in order. I loved the storyline and the characters all set in a lovely small town setting. The details that author Jane Suen includes made the place and the people come alive for me. I was fully immersed in the story and was pleased I could continue the series and I read the books one after the other. I found I went on an emotional rollercoaster whilst reading this heart warming trilogy and I was cheering the main characters on hoping that Connor and Mary Ann would have a ‘happy ever after’ especially as their chemistry sizzled off the page.
I recommend this trilogy by Jane Suen and I’m looking forward to reading more by this author.
