Chasing Happiness by Raine English
This is a short, sweet, heartwarming romance, the first in the Love Always series, but it can also be read as a standalone. Three childhood friends vowed to be wed by the time they were 25. Time is fast approaching. Can they find their true loves? Together they own Rosebud, a flower shop in Lakefield, Maine.
Zoe Goodwin, Ariana Black, and Katie Dunn own Rosebud and are getting prepared for opening day. Ariana had been living in New York as a model until she came back home and went into business with them. What happened while she was in New York? Later that evening at the grand opening party, Phil confronts her about leaving him. Why did Ariana come back home and why is she running from Phil?
Katie is engaged to Jake Patterson. She has a bad feeling about Dan, Zoe's boyfriend. Is Jake who she is intended to marry?
Zoe is dating Dan Stevens. Why don't her friends like him? Zoe has decided not to move in with Dan until marriage, but he presses the issue, even giving her a key to his place. What happens when she uses the key to thank him for referring their flower business to his friends which increases their sales?
After getting to know these characters, I can't wait to read the rest of the series and see what happens. Even after reading this story, I caught myself thinking about the characters, wondering what was going to happen. Definitely a series I will be reading over and over!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
