    A sweet tale of overcoming the disappointments life sends your way to be open to the possibilities that still exist for you in the world Also a cautionary tale of not letting love slip through your fingers by jumping to conclusions and letting the good things in life be enjoyed A well woven plot that was very enjoyable and a happy ending to make this the perfect afternoon listen to be entertained by

    One thought you never want to have when finishing a romance novel “I think she could do better”But that’s why the Chance family is so aptly named why their compound walls uite literally can’t contain their ever expanding brood why Iris plunged in where we cautious women would still be clicking pages at the sperm bank while waiting for a perfect specimen of man or semen These folks take a chance and in so doing find love and the path for their livesIris in Bloom is Nancy Warren’s second full length novel installment in the Take a Chance series Like its predecessor the story is a small town romance about one of the eleven offspring of the prolific Daphne and Jack Chance who – if you happen to be in Miller’s Pond Oregon – definitely have room for you at the dinner table and inside their warm ample hearts Coffee tea or he This story is of Iris the café ownerwriterelder sister who is when we meet her itchy in a way that 30 something women can get for a little forward motion in her life In walks Jeff the aforementioned mediocre hero who if he doesn’t get your lady parts stirring at least gets Iris’s coffee pot stirring which doesn’t say too much as it is after all her bakery High school English teacher Jeff is new in town not yet divorced and bristling with the unboxed new apartment shell shock of transition He is not what most single women would regard as availableThe story of how Iris and Jeff come together is not uite a love story for the ages Maybe not even for the afternoon These are nice enough people and there’s no particular reasons for them to be together or apart but that tepid endorsement of romance via proximity hardly elevates Iris in Bloom to the can’t live apart must have you now canon Mating for life Still lusty urgency and over the top gothic drama is not Warren’s game The small town slow pace live and let live beat of the Chance family is a rhythm of its own and while each book stands fine alone the series works best in the context of the whole as each grown kid builds on their uniue roots to create loving rewarding flourishing and meaningful lives Yes they fall in love but they do so within the context of communities and careers they value with partners they can actually live with just like their parents did for a lifetimeJeff might not be the kind of hero whose very presence makes the door vibrate or the dinner bell ring But for Iris he shares her passions and place her timing and general outlook on life I believe they will be happy together and fit well in the larger Chance clan That’s good enough I received this free audiobook in exchange for an honest review All opinions expressed are my own Wwwjordanalandsmancom

    Spoiler free review Audio narrated by Teri Schnaubelt Romantic comedy with some drama but nothing I felt was traumatic This is HEA romance with both drama and humor just like most people's real lives I tend toward reading romantic suspense but enjoy a well written romance with well developed characters and a good story Nancy Warren delivers in all those categories I can relate to the family and friends drama and comedy that comes with being unmarried woman over 30 I realized when I started it again I hadn't listed it on Goodreads in 2016 When I rate a book 4 5 it means I enjoyed it enough to re read Won this through Nancy Warren newsletter I only subscribe to newsletters of authors who have written multiple books I than just liked Nancy Warren routinely delivers characters I enjoy having visit me and would gladly know in real life if they were here my world Iris please bring muffins
