“With the bloom of springtime flowers…
comes the opportunity for new beginnings.”
He’s an injured firefighter. She bakes the most delightful treats. When their worlds collide will the baker help heal the firefighter with a mix of blueberry muffins and her caring way?
The elegant baker, Hannah Bell, has always lived on Bluestar Island with her family. While still grieving for her father, who died in a fire, she focuses all of her energy on making her dream come true–opening her very own bakery. But when a broken water pipe washes away her carefully laid plans, she’s on the verge of losing everything.
New York firefighter Ethan Walker’s life is in a tailspin after he’s injured on-the-job. When an urgent call detours him to Bluestar Island, he agrees to help his lovable but meddlesome great-aunt. But organizing the island’s Spring Fling proves a lot harder than he originally imagined. He needs help…and fast.
Under the magic of Bluestar Island’s sea breeze and warm sunshine, Hannah and Ethan must not only face their immediate obstacles but also their own turning points in life. Will they have to do that alone? With a leap of faith and a dash of romance, they might just find the perfect mix to make their dreams come true.
Includes a delicious recipe for The Elegant Baker’s Blueberry Crumble Muffin!

Jennifer Faye has created a close knit community based on service. Bluestar Island is exactly where you would want to live! Love Blooms centers around the atmosphere and people who call it home. One of the islanders, Hannah Bell, has invested her life savings and inheritance on remodeling and opening her own bakery. When disaster strikes, she’s at risk of losing it all. Enter firefighter Ethan Walker, who is helping his great aunt recuperate after a fall. The two work together to bring Hannah’s dream into reality. Both battling scars left by the life of a firefighter–loss, emotional and physical wounds that need healing. I liked seeing how the two had to put aside some pride and learn to compromise. I would love to see more character development around the side characters and family members. I feel like we know Aunt Birdie well, but the others feel a bit like pencil sketches with details left to fill in.
Love Blooms will help you understand that sometimes, life throws curve balls. You can build something new! Thanks so much to the author for the complimentary copy for the book tour. A clean read with delightful islanders in the perfect setting!
