comes the opportunity for new beginnings.”
He's an injured firefighter. She bakes the most delightful treats. When their worlds collide will the baker help heal the firefighter with a mix of blueberry muffins and her caring way?
The elegant baker, Hannah Bell, has always lived on Bluestar Island with her family. While still grieving for her father, who died in a fire, she focuses all of her energy on making her dream come true--opening her very own bakery. But when a broken water pipe washes away her carefully laid plans, she's on the verge of losing everything.
New York firefighter Ethan Walker's life is in a tailspin after he's injured on-the-job. When an urgent call detours him to Bluestar Island, he agrees to help his lovable but meddlesome great-aunt. But organizing the island's Spring Fling proves a lot harder than he originally imagined. He needs help...and fast.
Under the magic of Bluestar Island's sea breeze and warm sunshine, Hannah and Ethan must not only face their immediate obstacles but also their own turning points in life. Will they have to do that alone? With a leap of faith and a dash of romance, they might just find the perfect mix to make their dreams come true.
Includes a delicious recipe for The Elegant Baker's Blueberry Crumble Muffin!

Love Blooms is a really good beach read, especially since it does take place on an island. We have two people who are scarred from their pasts, both figuratively and emotionally, who meet in less then idea circumstances. However, as the story progresses, you could say their meeting was a blessing in disguise- not quite a meet cute but one that would have life altering changes for both of them.
I liked both characters, Hannah and Ethan. They shared similar characteristics in that neither liked to ask or accept help if they didn't have too. Hannah wanted to prove that she was just as capable as her siblings and Ethan was a tough, chance taking firefighter who really shouldn't be experiencing his nightmares no matter what had happened to him. But together, these two will make a deal that will be more of a give and take that they both can live with.
I liked my visit to the Bluestar Island and I look forward to more of the characters getting their happily ever afters. Especially since there are a few more residents that have piqued my interest.
