Where Dandelions Grow {review}




{New Release}
September 26th, 2017



Cousins are forever, or at least they’re supposed to be. 

What happens when your world falls apart and your dreams are mocked by those closest to you? 

Destiny’s idyllic childhood full of laughter and cousins abruptly ended when her mom uprooted the family to move them across the country with strict instructions to never talk about Swallow Ridge again. Eleven years later Destiny moves back to her hometown, determined to find her cousins… and answers. 

Plagued by generations of bitterness and manipulation, Destiny hides her life-long goal - unwilling to let anyone else trample her fragile dreams. But life in the cozy town full of dandelions teaches Destiny there’s more to life than what she’s been taught. 

Is it possible Swallow Ridge not only holds the answers Destiny so intensely searches for, but also the hope?

{4.5 stars.}

Where Dandelions Grow was a sweet, easy read. This is romantic in the sense that coffee shops and pastries and books are romantic. Family, love, and faith blend together nicely in a pint-sized package that would go well with a cup of tea and one of Mrs. Reed's pastries. 

There wasn't much suspense or action, other than the reunions between the cousins, but after all the action and fantasy books I've been reading, I didn't mind a quieter one. I feel like quiet is the best word for this story, but don't worry - it didn't put me to sleep. The thread of dandelions throughout was nice, especially since dandelions are some of my favorite flowers. And that cover... swoons
