Macon Draeger has loved Charlotte for as long as he can remember. While he’s thrilled that she’s back in Last Stand, Texas, he suspects she won’t stay long. Charlotte has always had a wandering spirit, with dreams that carry her far from their hometown.
When Charlotte Kraus returns to run her grandmother’s flower shop for the holidays, she never expected to feel so at home and inspired. On a whim, she decides to transform the simple flower shop into a flower cafe. The project quickly spirals out of her control, but Macon, her high school sweetheart – a skilled and in-demand handy man – steps in to help. Was he this tall, dark, handsome and tempting when they were teens? Charlotte is wondering about a lot of things by the time they ring in the New Year.
Spending time with Charlotte reminds Macon of what he truly wants in life – love and a family of his own. Can he gain his heart’s desire this Christmas?

My Rating: 4.5 stars
CHRISTMAS FLOWERS delivers a second chance at love for Charlotte and Macon in the second story of the Draegers of Last Stand, Texas series. Macon has loved Charlotte it seems like forever, even an almost decade long absence hasn’t changed those feelings. For now, Charlotte is back in town tending to her grandmother’s flower shop while she takes a well-deserved break. Life in the fast lane, traveling the world was Charlotte’s dream come true, yet with the changes at work and the temptation of a slower life, perhaps with Macon, has Charlotte rethinking that globe-trotting dream that once meant everything to her.
I had such fun with CHRISTMAS FLOWERS. Watching Macon and Charlotte reconnect and slowly fall into the kind of love that stays, that can last a lifetime was a sweet Christmas treat. They had issues to deal with, of course, but as Charlotte begins to see Macon (and her small hometown) in a different light – when running to someone forever instead of running away to an unknown adventure becomes what her heart desires the pieces of their romance fall into place. If you love a really good second chance romance then this one is for you.
