I want to thank Susan Mallery, Harlequin and NetGalley for providing us this book in exchange for an honest review.
Review by Christin
Kelly Murphy has the coolest job!! She and her dad run a tulip farm!! Having never been lucky in love she puts all of her efforts in creating the perfect tulips. That all changes when Griffith Burnett comes back to town!! Kelly had a huge crush on Griffith in high school, that was until he humiliated her in front of his friends! But trying to keep her distance is near impossible because Griffith seems to be everywhere she is (including her female only book club lol)!! When she finally confronts Griffith he tells her not only does he want to be friends, he wants “more” with Kelly!! Griffith wants a relationship, but the kicker is he doesn’t want to ever complicate things with falling in love or marriage!! If that’s not a enough for Kelly to deal with her sister Olivia is back in town. To say Kelly and Olivia have a dysfunctional relationship is a massive understatement!! Kelly must navigate her new normal both in her romantic and family life!
I love what Susan Mallery had in mind with this novel!!! She always creates fantastic characters with storylines that keep you hooked the entire time. The chemistry between Kelly and Griffith was great and even though Kelly initially tried to deny it, sparks were instant!! I also enjoyed the supporting characters and I really hope we get their stories in the future!! It was awesome to see Kelly and Olivia’s relationship evolve and blossom!! Secrets of the Tulip sister is a 4.5 star read that would make the absolute perfect beach read!! As ALWAYS, I am already looking forward to Susan Mallery’s next book!!
