Cara Kryzik owns Bloom, a flower shop in Savannah, Georgia and is trying to keep her business afloat. With several high-profile weddings on her schedule, she hopes she will be finally able to pay off the money her father lent her. Living above the shop with her dog, Poppy, she is also trying to put the betrayal by her ex-husband in the past. When Poppy is mistakenly dognapped by Jack Finnerty, anger turns to passion. Then, when a rival florist makes it clear that he's trying to put Cara out of business and a client's family heirloom goes missing, it might turn out to be more than Cara can handle. With Andrews' trademark southern charm, a strong romance and the backdrop of life in a flower shop, this one's a winner. Save the Date will be published in June.
