My Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

Each Siri Mitchell novel brings a variety of entertainment. I love that all of her historical novels are based on different time periods. I have enjoyed her books very much and always look forward to her new releases.

 

Like a Flower in Bloom follows the story of Charlotte Withersby. She has assisted her botanist father for as long as she can remember and she absolutely loves her job. However, when her uncle and father decide that Charlotte needs to find a suitable husband, they hire a replacement for Charlotte. Charlotte is infuriated with not only her uncle and father, but also her father’s new assistant who seems so intent on changing up everything. Charlotte and a friend come up with a plan to get her job back but her plan seems to backfire and Charlotte finds herself with a mess of potential suitors. But who truly holds Charlotte’s heart?

 

This was not one of my favorite books by Siri Mitchell. Some of the characters kind of annoyed me – including Charlotte. However, it was very interesting learning about some of the history of botany and how so many people enjoyed it as a hobby. I loved the pictures this novel created in my mind as the flowers came to life and the smells invaded my senses. If only I had a bouquet of flowers sitting next to me as I read it!

 

Like I said, not a favorite, but this won’t turn me off of Siri Mitchell’s novels.

 

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher, Bethany House, in exchange for my honest review. I received no compensation for this review, nor was I required to write a positive review. All opinions stated are my own.

  1. Thanks for this review! I like that Siri Mitchell writes in a variety of time periods as well, so I’m curious about her books. I have a few of them, but have only read 1 so far. The one I read, A Heart Most Worthy, was quite good, but I did find the ending a little too pat. Still need to write my review of it, though.

    • A Heart Most Worthy was probably one of my favorite books by her. There were a few I did not enjoy very much but she still writes excellent fiction!
