The Perfect Arrangement - By Katie Ganshert

5 Stars!

Meeting Nick was truly an accident—but Amelia finds that he’s one of the few people she can count on.

Amelia Woods is a small-town wallflower who inherited her grandmother’s flower shop. Despite her success in business, her love life has ground to a halt. And then her temptation to spy on her ex-boyfriend’s wedding leads her to a horrifying fender-bender—with Nick, the groomsman who happens to be her ex’s new brother-in-law.

Meanwhile, William, Amelia’s younger brother, has proposed to his girlfriend. Amelia would be excited except she has evidence that the fiancée is not who she says she is. How can she be supportive and yet be the protective big sister too? It seems Nick is the only one available for any advice-giving, and he’s pretty good at it—and pretty fun to talk to. Amelia and Nick continue online conversations about everything, but always lingering in Amelia’s mind is the fear that he’ll realize who she is and what she was doing at the church that day of the accident.

As Amelia works to craft the perfect flower arrangements for other people—including a ninety-year-old “fairy godmother” named George—she begins to wonder if real love is better than the dream. And if it is, will Nick still be interested when he learns who she is?

Katie Ganshert graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Madison with a degree in education, and worked as a fifth grade teacher for several years before staying home to write full-time. She was born and raised in the Midwest, where she lives with her husband, their young son, and their goofy black lab, Bubba. When she’s not busy writing or playing or reading or snuggling, she is obsessing over the paperwork and the waiting that comes with adoption.

OH I loved this one! This one was so much fun to read! I read it in one sitting. One thing I loved about it (and what others might not like about it) was all the emails! I love books that do this. I love books that use emails, texting etc. to make up their stories. It just makes it so much more fun to read. Of course, it did remind me of the movie "You've Got Mail" but I love that movie so I didn't mind.

The character development was great. I really liked all the characters and felt like I knew them in just this short time.

I loved everything about this one. 
Oh yeah - and it was romantic!  :-)

This is funny because I also read last years - "An October Bride" by Katie and also loved it!

  1. The book is by an author that I do read but what you like in the modern emails and texting in the book -I do not. I am older woman so guess this is probably why. I enjoy the historical and amish stories better. thanks for sharing your opinion on this one.

  2. I loved it too! Sometimes emails/letters annoy and/or bore me, but if they are done right (like in this book), I love them!
    Great review!

  3. I absolutely loved the email aspect! This novella was so fun!

  4. The email format sounds interesting. It's funny, I've read 2 books written in letter format: Daddy Long-Legs, and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I loved them both, but it sure shows how times have changed!
