Where Flowers Bloom is a work of women’s fiction with plenty of interpersonal drama, penned by author Nikki Vale. The work is written for adult audiences due to the inclusion of some steamy romantic scenes and moderate violence. In this emotive and highly engaging read, we meet romance writer Kendyll as she verges on losing her passion and belief in the happily ever after. Her current relationship with long-term fiancé Vance has grown stale, prompting them to move to a new town in the hopes of a fresh start. But Kendyll gets a lot more than she bargained for when she finds an old house filled with secrets and a new contractor who rekindles her hopes for love.
Author Nikki Vale has crafted an excellent and highly engaging drama that encompasses elements of excellent romance fiction, but also of cultural and interpersonal drama that really brings home the realism of the piece. Kendyll is a strong heroine with much to figure out in her life, and we follow her through decisions both good and bad with a fervent hope that her dreams will succeed. The interracial issues present and the elements of past history add a new dimension of diversity to the work which other writers could certainly take note of, relating a modern and realistic romantic tale. Overall, I would highly recommend Where Flowers Bloom for readers who not only enjoy an accomplished and moderate-heat level romantic story but also want realistic and heart-warming characters to root for and fall in love with.
