Wondering ‘What should I read next?’ The Trouble with Tulips by Emily Dana Botrous.
He prefers plants to people. She has a black thumb. Can love bloom?
Kim Williams cultivates greenery as successfully as she’s advanced her career. In other words, she can’t garden. So when she ends up in charge of the flower garden her mom enters into a local competition, Kim knows she needs help.
The trouble starts when the only assistance in her hometown comes from her brother’s best friend. She’s liked Jake for years despite his prickly personality, and he doesn’t have a clue.
The only thing Jake Dunn can keep alive is a plant. He’s lost enough that besides his friend Dusty, he has no use for anyone, including God. When Dusty’s sister asks him for help, he turns her down flat—until he realizes he needs her help, too.
As they trade tulips for business expertise, Jake finds there’s more to Kim than he’s ever noticed before. Too bad the only way to keep her safe is by keeping her out of his heart.
If Jake can’t trust God to be the bridge between the pain in the past and the promise of the future, Kim must decide whether to dig in her roots…or move on for good.
