Review - The Wildflower in Bloom by Janelle Ashley
Title: Wildflower in Bloom
Author: Janelle Ashley
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Rating: You Need to Read
Reviewed by Val
Barton Remington has always thought of his best friend's little sister as an untamed dirty-faced tomboy, but after a six year absence he returns home to find his little wildflower all grown up and much too appealing for her own good. Poppy Mandelville is merely a merchant's daughter, so when Barton returns from the war, and she discovers her childish infatuation has bloomed into love, she must put aside all hope of a match with the future Earl of Birmingham, or must she?
Barton Remington was not the same man after war than he had been when he had first entered. He did not look forward to going home to be the Earl of Birmingham as that life seemed trivial to him now. So he goes home with Dominic for a short visit and sees the grown up Poppy. The moment he laid eyes on Poppy as a grown woman, he knows that she is different from every woman he has ever known.
This is a story of what can happen when love blossoms, try as hard as you will to deny it, love will never denied. Poppy's character was a strong woman who lived by her own convictions and had a heart of gold. She was beautiful on the inside as well as the outside. She has a love for animals and her fellow man. She was the perfect heroine. Barton character was adorable. He tried so hard not to have any feelings for Poppy and the little things that attracted him to poppy were endearing. The attraction between the two was captivating and kept me turning pages just as quickly as I could.
Wildflower in Bloom is a touching story love story laced with comedy and excitement. I was positively enchanted by the Janelle Ashley's exquisite imagery. I hope to read more of her work in the future and I strongly suggest you read this book as it is such a sweet and inspirational read. Not a book to be missed.
