Flowers In December By Jane Suen is about a young man who comes back to his childhood hometown to get his parents affairs in order after his mother’s passing. Once there he has a self revelation that he needs more in his life than his 60 hour a week corporate job in the city. After sorting out his parents belonging he heads back to the city but soon realizes that it isnt home for him. This is a great book by Jane Suen its a bit more subdued than her other books but it is still a story that makes you think. Especially about life, death and our journey between. I love this author’s ability to draw you into the story and allows you to follow the journey with the characters. A solid 5 stars from me for this book.

Flowers in December by Jane Suen is a book that makes you think and feel, there is no way around it … At the same time it is not dramatic … it is like a flowing river with different random swirls that pull you down and you end up gasping for air … those feelings I was referring to … Connor Norton, the only one left of his family, and the family’s orange tabby Tom stick together to reconcile with the life after the death of the mother … Finding their way out together … accepting each other … it is time to re-evaluate your life and try to bridge the gap between the past and present and the future … how do you get out of the world you have created for yourself … how do start living the life that involves also the other people … will you be open to friendships formed in the time of loss … do those relationships last to change the course of your life … I loved the story and once you finish it, you leave feeling awake and possibly also a little healed … Thank you Jane Suen for this wonderful heart-warming story and I know I will be looking for more of your writing!

Flowers in December by Jane Suen is a book of loss and acceptance. I related to this book In many ways as I too have lost my mom. From a young age I have been part of the “losing a parent club” this book was refreshing in the sense that grief is raw and can hit you at any time. Death is definitely a hard topic to write about and I think Jane did a very good job. This is my third book by her and I enjoy her writing style. I am excited to read other books by her. Overall I enjoyed it and really got it for lack of a better phrase. 4 star rating.

Flowers in December by Jane Suen 5 Stars Miss Suen has found a way on to my favorite author list. I think what I love most about her is that you never know what your going to get when you read her books. She is definitely not predictable and that’s just one of my favorite things about her. I was able to feel every single feeling that Conner was feeling in this book. I lost my Mom just a few years ago and it changed my life. This story was as real as it gets, there was no added drama and major twists and turns, I did kind of feel like I knew what was going to happen but it was more like it was what I was hoping would happen, and I've let my imagination take over the rest. This author is a definite one click, her words flow so perfectly and her storylines are out of this world, and I can not wait to see what she comes up with next. I loved loved loved this book.

Flowers in December by Jane Suen is an emotional story about loss of a parent and loss of yourself. This is not my first book by this author but I think that this is my favorite so far of her books. I enjoy her simple writing style and the easy flowing of her stories. Her characters are lovable, connectable and will pull you into their world. This character took me on an emotional roller coaster ride that I cried a couple of tears with. This is the story of a man who loses his mother and has returned home to realize that he has no one left in his life. Not only does he need to morn the loss of his mother but the life that he once had. I love when an author puts an animal into the story to help someone heal and that is what this author has done here. He finds companionship in the cat that his mom left behind. Will this cat be the healing that he needs? Will he finally be free of the evils and be able to heal? This is a great strong character that really is just lost in his life. This story deals with a sensitive topic and the author has done a great job of getting across the compassion and healing that goes along with it. I highly recommend this story as I know you will want to find out how strong the power of healing is.

I really enjoyed Connor's story. It has always been difficult to put into words how deeply a person is affected by a parents passing. I truly believe Jane Suen did a wonderful job giving a glimpse into the heartbreaking and slow process of dealing with having to let go. I felt I was part of the journey and it brought back feelings of when I lost my own father. Jane has a way with words that lets you in and helps you see the emotional part of every decision and action a person makes. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story or anyone who happens to be going through this same rough time. I was gifted this book and it moved me to write a review.

This is a very touching story about a man trying to deal with his mother’s passing. The addition of Tom, his mother’s cat, makes it even that more heartwarming. Suen is following the latest trend of writing novelettes, rather than full 200+ page books, and that’s a refreshing change. It means I can read the story without losing too much sleep. I would love to see the characters in this story come back in a sequel because a lot was left hanging on the last page, making me want more. The authors’ writing style makes for an easy read and her descriptions take you to those places, making you feel as if you’re part of the scene. I will recommend this book to others.

Reviewed by Benjamin Ookami for Readers' Favorite Flowers in December is a fiction novella by Jane Suen. Connor is a man who finds himself working sixty-hour weeks in a big city, and has a hard reality to face. He no longer has parents to go back to. His father passed away a long time ago and he has just been at his mother's funeral in a small town called Rocky Flats. It is up to him to decide what happens to the house he grew up in, but for now, the lawyer that puts the possibility of selling the house in his head just has to wait. The reality that Connor has to face is that he's alone. He doesn't want to be alone anymore. A woman who owns a flower shop could very well change all that. Jane Suen created a realistic small town with people that may throw a smile and a nod Connor's way when he passes them on the street. Connor acts in a way that shows readers how fed up he is with being alone, as well as the confident persona he adopts whenever he is in public. Alone and away from the public spectrum, we can sometimes expect to find him in tears. In a short amount of pages, the author takes us through various stages of Connor's journey towards the end of his conflict in this book. He is alone without his parents, and even the word "middle-aged" scares him, but he tackles his problems fearlessly. Someone who knows what it's like to lose a parent will find a lot to relate to in this book.
