The Bloomfield Garden Club, an all-ages group of lovable oddballs that will stop at nothing to make everything beautiful, maintains this piece of heaven on earth. But even such idyllic places as this have their share of dramatic characters and stories to be told.
Take, for instance, craft store owner Amber Weathersby. She wants to be a member of the garden club but has never received the blessing of a green thumb. Her friend, Stan the mechanic, has helped as much as he can -- even adding a timed sprinkler system to Amber’s garden -- but the results never live up to the club’s expectations.
Her only claim to fame with that gang is her semi-famous garden gnome, Gnorman, who gets to hold the prized trophy each year in the Bloomfield Spring Fling contest’s winning garden.
But this year, instead of being the life of the party, her little star is gnomegnapped, and worse, the club’s irreplaceable trophy has gone missing with him. While Amber is chasing the gnome around town trying to win the trophy, Stan is chasing Amber, trying to win her heart.

Loved this book. Of course Im a huge fan of Gail Sattler. The whole gnome thing was kinda cheesy, but it sounded like fun except for the fact that no one knew how stressed out and fearful of the future that it made her. But then God knows and he used this trial not only to make two forever friends realize their love for one (with the help of the garden club ladies). But God used it to test them and prepare them for what blessings would eventually come out of the relationship (saving her business, settling her debt to that horrible uncle of hers, etc). Overall, it was a very enjoyable book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
