Jessica Ayer has taken time away from her job as a cellist for the Boston Symphony Orchestra, to try and figure out exactly what it is that is missing from her life. Jamie Reed takes one look at Jess and knows that she's different from every other woman that he's dated, and is determined that she'll know that too. Their relationship moves quickly, with both of them feeling serious about the other, but it isn't just a new boyfriend that Jess has gained, the Seaside girls induct her into their midst and she finds herself chunky dunking and having more fun than she's ever had before...
Love in Bloom never fails to satisfy, the realatonships between the chaaracters seem real and combine the right amount of emotion, passion and reality, making them feel real enough while maintaining a sort of fantasy like feel to them.
Jess and Jamie were cute more than anything else. Whereas most couples have a bit more heat (and they did have heat between them) they just seemed more cute than anything else, and I liked that! I thought it made them different from the other Seaside couples.
I really liked the way that Jess found herself becoming friends with the other Seaside girls, it felt like a real friendship was being formed and it was especially good because you could tell that as a character, Jess was quite lonely. But also it was good because they treated her like one of their own.
The characters all seemed to grow in this one, and that included the secondary characters...there was also a good set up for the next book, with Tony becoming more moody and Amy starting to make him a bit jealous...I'm excited to see where this one goes!
