Wallflower Blooming by Amy Rivers was the perfect book to curl up with after some Thanksgiving evening shopping. I was still wide awake and had consumed enough caffeine that I read the entire book in one sitting.
This is a nice book. There wasn't anything earth-shattering or unbelievable in it. Instead, I got to know a few people who lived in the small Colorado town of Cambria. Val is a single woman running a successful PR firm. She isn't close to her mom or sister, mostly because she feels they abandoned her father shortly before he died. She fears losing her business, something that happened to her dad, which devastated him, and an event she believes caused his early death.
She is close to her cousin, Gwen, a successful single woman in Cambria who decides to run for mayor of the town despite having to go head-to-head with the current mayor who is bullying her. Gwen asks Val to be in charge of the PR for her campaign, and despite Val's reservations she agrees.
There is a little romance as the forever single Val is introduced to one of the town's most eligible and successful bachelors, and a political battle that heats up as the book goes on.
I really enjoyed this novel. I feel as though I'm just getting to know these characters and would love to see them show up again in a future installment of life in Cambria.
