A Bouquet of Love…
Ten couples not looking for love find something unexpected when they visit Serendipity Bridal Boutique, Kate Peron’s vintage-styled salon. Love is in the air and it’s about to blow into their lives, bringing fortunate accidents of the heartfelt variety to those lucky enough to walk through Serendipity’s doors.
A man comes to Eagle Point to stop a wedding. A magazine editor finds herself in a cheesy situation. A different kind of bride takes to the catwalk. Readers will be swept away by this bouquet of stories from ten Australian authors – stories of healing and second chances, of opening hearts and minds, of souls connecting and remembering, of temptation and desire. Life and love in Eagle Point has never been more challenging … or fun!
From cupcake wielding assassins to hilarious blind date set-ups, there’s something for everyone in this delightfully romantic collection that proves there can never be too much ado about love.

A Bouquet of Love is a beautifully presented book. The gorgeous front cover design with its pink butterflies falling into formation as a bride; the hearts set between the story breaks and the pretty motifs above each the chapter headers; this book is so utterly pretty and compliments the romantic stories within it perfectly. I’m very partial to lovely looking books, it’s the book collector within in me popping up its inquisitive head, and I can see myself picking up another copy of this anthology to give as a gift come Christmas time.
This anthology is ideal for fans of insta-love, romantic comedies, and whimsical second chance love stories. Each of the ten stories are the perfect length to sit down and read with a cuppa, bite-sized romance that promises that uplifting ‘happy ever after’ each time.
Orbiting around the Serendipity Bridal Boutique, I appreciated that thread of connectivity that laced all of the stories together. Given each author had only that common location as a link, I think they did very well coming up with some fun and memorable scenarios. The editors have done a wonderful job ensuring that all of the stories were unique and well placed within the anthology.
Thanks is extended to Serenity Press for providing me with a copy of A Bouquet of Love for review.
