THE BLOSSOM SISTERS by Fern Michaels
Gus Hollister owes all his success to his feisty grandmother, Rose, and her two sisters, Iris and Violet. They raised him, sent him to the best schools, and helped him start his own accounting business. Rose even bought the house Gus lives in with his wife, Elaine.
Now, Gus stands to lose everything—his home, his car, and his business. Worse, he’s alienated his beloved grandma, who tried to warn him about Elaine’s greedy ways. Heartsick and remorseful, Gus returns to Rose’s Virginia farmhouse. But it won’t be easy to make amends. Yet family and forgiveness go hand in hand, and Gus isn’t giving up. Because no matter how daunting starting over can be, the results can surpass your wildest expectations—especially when the Blossom sisters are in your corner…
This is my first Fern Michaels book and I did enjoy it. It's a good drama about Gus and his family. He falls hopelessly in love and marries a woman whom his family sees for what she is. They distance themselves from family and Gus finds they were right, his wife was trying to take him for all he has.
The characters are delightful, most of them anyway, especially the aunts and grandma who are sassy and very independent. What a joy it would be to know people like them. Together they come up with a plan and boy, what a plan!
I laughed throughout the book and decided this won't be the only Fern Michaels book I'll read!
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
