As Love Blooms is the third and final installment in The Gregory Sisters series by Lorna Seilstad. I've enjoyed this trip back into the early 1900s with these three ladies. This wasn't my favorite of the three books, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Tessa meets her match while trying to make a name for herself in the gardening industry. The story was sweet but I just didn't connect with this character like I did with Hannah and Charlotte. I did enjoy watching Aunt Sam and her friend get in a little deeper though.
From the back cover:
Tessa Gregory is nothing if not tenacious. Denied a position as a horticulturist at prestigious Como Park in Saint Paul, Minnesota, she is not above a little benevolent deception in order to get the park superintendent to change his mind and hire her. SHe plans to infiltrate the world of wealthy and influential people in hopes of drumming up financial support for a world-class conservatory. Before she can put those plans into action, she meets Reese King, a handsome gardener at Como Park-and a major distraction. Still, Reese might be the key to achieving her dream. But is his goal to help her...or to capture her heart?
