✿ Wallflowers: Three of a Kind ✿ CP Smith ✿

Romance and poetry, ivy, lichens, and wallflowers, need ruin to make them grow. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

They say money is the root of all evil, but sometimes, evil lurks in the most unlikely places.

Calla Lily Armstrong spent her whole life shielding her heart. Now she's ready to break down her walls and see what's hiding on the other side. With the help of her new friends, Poppy Gentry and Sienna Miller, the three band together to find their happily ever after. One Wallflower at a time.

Former Atlanta Homicide Detective, Devin Hawthorne, moved to Savannah for a change of pace and a fresh start as a Private Investigator. He finds it right under his nose in the form of a Southern beauty who drives him to distraction, and deadly secrets that threaten her very life.

ARC received from author for an honest review.

It has been a while since we have had a new book from CP Smith, but picking up one of her books is like coming home.  It is like putting on a pair of comfy slippers and relaxing on the couch.

You kind of know what to expect with her stories, but the journey she takes you on is always a bit unexpected.

Wallflowers:  Three of a Kind is the first in the Wallflowers series and as well as being a beautiful story in its own, it is a great set up for the next two books.

Calla Lily - Cali and Devin's relationship is full of fun, laughs and sexy times, along with plenty of betrayal, frustrations and aggravation.  But through everything that is happening - it is a CP Smith novel, you know there is going to be plenty of sh!t going down - they are able to forge a friendship, a relationship, love.

There are so many great characters in this book.  From Cali's aunts to her two new and best friends - the other wallflowers - you can't help but smile and get taken along on the adventure with them.

I love the friendship between the Wallflowers - Cali, Poppy and Sienna.  We all need friendships like theirs in our lives.

 There is also plenty of suspense, and I have to say, I am usually pretty good at picking who the bad guys are in the books I read but this time I had no idea!

Ms Smith has woven a beautiful, heartfelt story about love and friendships.  The story flowed, it felt like I had known these characters my whole life, and even though events happen over the space of about a week, this did not feel like an insta-love kind of relationship.

I can't wait for the next in the Wallflowers series.

CP Smith lives in Oklahoma with her husband and five children. She loves football, reading, and card games. Writing for her is about escape. She writes what she loves to read, and leaves the rest to those with better imaginations.
