As the owner of a
successful florist shop, Khloe Harper trusts her instincts. She has a strong
bond with her family and friends, but after being betrayed by her last
love, she’s kept herself at arms’ length from romance. When dashing
entertainment attorney Derek Thomas walks into her store, Khloe’s interest is
piqued. What at first seems like a business relationship quickly turns into
romance, and Derek slowly plucks away the petals she’s been hiding behind.
Just as Khloe lets down her guard, she discovers that Derek may not be worthy
of her love after all.
Frumpy Connie Albright has a faux fascination with
an imaginary man named Walt, thinking that by sending herself flowers from him
she’ll feel less out-of-place with the “mean girls” she works with. When she
comes face to face with her possible prince charming and thinking she might
have a happy ending, when a truth is revealed, she wonders if she’ll ever have
a Cinderella story.
A recently widowed senior, Gabby Lewis, isn’t
ready to give up on love—which means releasing herself from survivor’s guilt
and taking a chance on finding happiness and companionship again. After
signing up for an online dating site for senior citizens, much to her surprise,
she’s matched with Harry, an energetic and loving man, who quickly eases
himself into her heart. Will Gabby take the leap of falling in love again,
knowing it’s possible to have two loves of her life?
As each woman’s story develops through flowers and
cards sent from Khloe’s shop during the Fall months, they begin to learn that
love can only truly blossom when you trust your heart.

1.) What inspired you to write Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop? I wrote “Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop” during NaNoWriMo, so I had no time to waste on November 1st. That being said, Khloe Kardashian was on the cover of my USWeekly magazine. I’ve always loved that name and having just received flowers, I put two and two together and just started writing. I have always wanted to own a flower shop, though, so I wrote Khloe as part of how I’d want to run my business while managing a love life.
2.) Which Character do you feel more connected to? In different ways, I felt connected to all my characters, I felt I could relate to Connie the most. We’re a lot alike; both of us are shy individuals and have often felt like the ugly duckling, though (without giving any spoilers), we’ve learned a lot about ourselves from it.
3.) What was the most fun part in writing Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop? Just writing it in general, to be honest. I wrote the first draft in seventeen days, and I have to say, up to this point, it’s by far my most favorite book I’ve written.
4.) Number one reason to read Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop? Because of the different stages Khloe, Gabby, and Connie are at in their lives, I think a lot of women can relate to certain situations.
5 .) Do you have any upcoming projects and if so can you tell us about it? I’m currently working on a country contemporary romance, which I’m loving. This particular book has a lot of truth to it, so, at times, it’s been quite emotional.
