I truly could not stop reading this book. Some romances are predictable. This one is not easy to figure out. Although Lana and Karin are sisters, they are totally different. Lana wants to travel and taste adventure especially in Costa Rica. This is why she is not married. Her head is full of dreams. She is only committed to the Wildflower Barn. She makes her living by selling wildflowers, giving advice about asters, Queen Anne's Lace, etc. Karin is her partner in the Wildflower Barn.
At the beginning of each chapter there is a small paragraph about a particular wildflower. After learning a lot about Lana's personality, I thought of her as a wildflower. Lana is a free spirit. Karin does not want adventure. She is content in Vermont. However, there is one desire that obsesses Karin. Unfortunately, she and Gene, her husband, are unable to make this event happen. It seems like what Karin wants so badly and strives so hard to get comes easily to Lana.
These desires strain the relationship between the two sisters. Karin's marriage becomes strained too. There is so much to tell about what happened as I traveled with the sisters and the men in their lives, Eli,
Gene, Ron and Calvert through Vermont.
To avoid spoilers I will stop writing. I hope you will read this book. If you have already read it, I'm sure you liked it. If you haven't read it, at least, give Lisa Dale a chance to explain how, why and what happened one night.
