About this ebook

Will old high school crushes find a second chance at love in this small town holiday romance?

Florist Rose McDaniels is the unofficial matchmaker of Hartwood Falls. Her annual Secret Valentines have brought together more happy couples than she can count. Too bad the only person she can’t seem to help find love is herself. Try as she may, no one holds a candle to the boy who made her first believe in love . . . right before he left town with her heart.

When cardiac surgeon Liam Bradley returns to his childhood home of Hartwood Falls for the first time in fifteen years, his life is falling apart all around him. With his career at risk and a relationship with his longtime girlfriend on the rocks, true love is the last thing on his mind.

His quiet retreat turns upside down when he comes face to face with the girl he left a secret message for all those years ago.

Then a freak accident finds this self-proclaimed cynic up to his ears in roses and love notes—all because of her.

Rose and Liam gamble their hearts and confess old secrets in this heart-warming tale of second chances and forgiveness.

Heartbeats and Roses is the second novel in the Hartwood Falls series. These do not need to be read in any particular order; however I did enjoy the cameo from characters in book one. CADE FOREVER! Her One Weakness. Let me tell you, Charlie Rose has many. It was enjoyable to see her art and work ethic. The perfection and details that were put into this novel surrounding her business was inspiring. Learning about the meaning of the flowers was very interesting. Definitely a cute read. I love this town. It just feels like home. I can't wait for the next installment and to see how love will bloom. I will say I did enjoy the first book way more. But this novel was also entertaining and seeing the childhood love, heartbreak and trauma grow was very redeeming. And I also felt like a super nerd reading all of the 'Doctor Lingo' for Liam's job. I watch a love of Grey's anatomy and other shows and I knew exactly the conditions the writer was talking about. This is definitely a topsy turny complicated Valentine's Day read with an incredibly happy and sweet ending

The place he has rented for his stay is above a floral shop and brings him face-to-face with his past. He quickly realized how much he missed Rose and they started to get close again.
