    A trip to the south of France.

    This was a beautiful book. You could smell the roses and feel the love. It will be a book that I will read over and over again. I hope the rest of the the cousins get their stories told.

    Sweet

    This book is so sweetly written. It's haed to put down. Its a welcome change from all of those "shades of grey" that a lot of people seem to lime

    Roses and Music Blend in the South of France

    I can still smell the fragrance of roses, feel the deep roots of generations of work, and bask in the happiness of a love story with a few complex notes. I love how Laura Florand can blend the elements of the five senses with emotions that breathe life into them. Her Chocolate series smoothly tempts your taste buds and melts your heart at the same time. This new Rose series captures the fragrances in the air and makes the scent a skin signature. This story also has several historical bits that tie nicely into the story since the Rosier family has lived in the same area for centuries so the great grandparents would have lived through World War II. Some of the phrases Laura wrote were sheer poetry, “Pure and beautiful, a silent song of stars.” Others made me laugh with amusement when describing Layla’s thought’s of Matt’s hotness, “What the Hell had happened to his other girlfriends, had they just exploded?” And most touching of all for me were her uses of metaphors as Layla muses to herself, “And nearly eleven months more of nurturing, for those five weeks of bloom. Maybe she was really out of balance.” As with her previous works, you can rest assured there will be plenty of humor, growth, fun, and delicious chemistry in this Matt & Layla’s story. I cared about their story so much I cried with joy at the end :)

    Wonderful Start to a new series!

    A story by Laura Florand is a feast for the senses, and this one is no exception, sweeping the reader off to the south of France and the flowered hills of Provence in this story of love, family ties and ageless history. Matt owns the valley of roses - or more precisely, it owns him. It's his family legacy, his lifeblood and his responsibility to keep the perfume companies supplied with roses from his ancestral land holdings. When Layla, a young singer finds herself inheriting a house in his valley that Matt always expected would come to him, it doesn't take long for Matt to realize that perhaps he'll be willing to share some of himself with her - only when he finds out that she's been keeping a secret from him, one that could affect their quiet peaceful valley, will he be willing to stake his future on these new fledgling feelings that are building between them? I adored this story. Matt is such a quiet, sincere, and reserved man - when he isn't drunk, in which case his flirtatious side comes out and he acts much more brashly and bold than he would sober, charming in his silliness and making Layla blush at their first meeting . But from then on, once he's sober and mortified at his behavior, it's Layla who has the power to make him blush. Regular Matt is a grumpy soul, weighted down with the responsibilities of his family duties, but hiding a tender and soft heart inside, one that Layla increasingly is able to uncover as they go from wary strangers to friends to lovers. Layla is equally engaging as a woman seeking solace in the valley after experiencing increasing frustration over her inability to compose the music that once flowed from her fingertips. Here in this valley, with Matt and his family she finds that music again, and wonders how she can keep everything that is coming to mean so much to her. The development of their romance, initially with glances and touches that become more intimate as time goes by was sweet and wonderful to experience. The love scenes between them are emotional and steamy, leaving the reader no doubt that their feelings will run deep. The camaraderie among the cousins is a highly entertaining part of the story - the teasing and reminders of youthful indiscretions make for many smiles. The strong sense of family pervades the story throughout. There are also poignant moments as war time memories are brought to the surface and shared, reminders of the sacrifices made for their families to have the valley and its treasures now. This story will make you laugh, will bring tears to your eyes, and was an absolute delight. I am very much looking forward to the next in the series. 5 stars.
