A Bouquet of Love by Janice Thompson

A Bouquet of Love (Weddings by Design #4)Book Description:
Cassia Pappas has found herself in a nearly impossible situation. She wants to spend her time immersed in her new job at a Galveston Island floral shop, arranging blooms and brightening occasions with her lovely creations. But her huge Greek family–especially her father–has other ideas. They’ve all relocated to Galveston to open up a new family restaurant location on the Strand– directly across the street from the Rossis’ popular pizza place–and they want Cassia’s full participation.
To make matters worse, as Cassia is trying to develop a strong professional relationship with Galveston’s premier wedding coordinator, Bella Neeley, her own father is intent on stealing all of the Rossi family’s faithful customers. Not exactly the best way to get into Bella’s good graces!
Still, at least Alex, that hot delivery guy from the nursery, is always hanging around the flower shop . . .
Fan favorite Janice Thompson gives readers one more romp with Bella, Galveston, and the bustling wedding biz in the final installment of her popular series. Anyone who loves quirky families, loads of laughter, and tender romance will find themselves hooked.

My Thoughts:
This book made me laugh out loud so many times!  Cassia's family is Greek, huge and loud.  Her father has opened up a restaurant right across the street from an Italian restaurant and has forbidden the family to speak to anyone from that restaurant.  There are several problems with that, the main one being the Rossis are everywhere!  Not to mention none of them are as bad as Cassia's father believes them to be, but there is no telling him that.  Cassia is also interested in Alex, who delivers the flowers to the flower shop she works at.I thought this book was really good.  The author does such a great job weaving humor throughout her books.  I absolutely love that.  Cassia and several in her family are put into amusing situations while trying to obey, yet avoid her father's decree.  Alex is great.  Too good looking and with a family just as loud and crazy as Cassia's!  I just couldn't put this one down when I started it.  I was really hoping her family would prosper, but at the same time wishing her father would see more than the Italian/Greek rivalry!  Still a great story and such wonderful characters.
A solid 5/5. I like seeing all the characters again.  If you haven't read the series, this is book 4 but you can read it as a stand alone and still really enjoy it!
