Synopsis:

“A dynamic start to a series with a refreshingly original premise.” —Kirkus Reviews on The Magnolia Sisters

She always followed the path of least resistance…until it leads her to a small town where she can follow her dreams.

When Emma Cantrell’s marriage imploded, she learned a fast and painful lesson about trusting her heart. Then, on a visit to Magnolia, North Carolina, to see her brother, an elegant, if dilapidated, mansion for sale presents the opportunity to start over. Risking everything on her dream of opening the Wildflower Inn, Emma buys the house…just as the storm of the century hits, severely damaging the structure. But a chance meeting with Holly, a bride-to-be in desperate need of a new venue, gives her hope…and the name of a contractor who’ll work fast and cheap, allowing Emma to repair the inn in time to host the wedding and save her investment.

A furniture builder who hasn’t picked up a tool in the five years since his wife died, Cameron Mitchell has no intention of agreeing to help this beautiful—and, he’d guess, entitled—woman insisting that he fix her inn. Until he learns that Emma was sent by Holly, the little sister of his late wife. Grudgingly, Cameron agrees to do the work, with one condition: that he be left completely alone. But the more time they spend together, the more Emma touches a part of his heart he was sure died long ago, forcing him to try making peace with his past.

My Review:

Wildflower Season is a beautiful romance about finding hope and love when you least expect it. Michelle Major got off to a great start with her new series, Carolina Girls.

The story follows Emma and Cam. They have both ridden off love because they have experienced their fair share of heartbreak and heartache. Emma is new to the town of Magnolia and is starting over. She is turning an old estate into an inn that she is going to name Wildflower Inn. She has risked everything to make this work and it doesn’t start off great after a storm leaves the building damaged. She needs to find someone to repair it but everyone is busy with other jobs. She heads to a local bar and meets a woman named Holly who is going through it too. Holly needs a wedding venue and Emma needs publicity. So, they team up to make this wedding memorable.

This is where Cam comes into the picture. He is Holly’s brother-in-law and is a builder who can finish the repairs on the Wildflower Inn. But it takes some convincing. After his wife died, he hasn’t been the same and has kept to himself, but he will do anything for Holly.

Emma and Cam have amazing chemistry. They are so alike and sometimes their stubbornness makes for some funny witty banter. After they begin to build a friendship, it becomes harder to deny their attraction. But they don’t want to open up their hearts again. Will they be able to find and experience love again?

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

I give Wildflower Season 4 stars. It’s such a heartbreaking and beautiful read. The main characters are broken and need some rescuing and their relationship provides them the healing that they deserve. This series is so heartwarming and hopeful. Wonderful start to the series.
