Since I really liked the other books in The Gregory Sisters series, I was really excited to read As Love Blooms, which is the third book in the series. This book looks at Tessa Gregory, the youngest sister who is interested in becoming a horticulturalist at Como Park in Saint Paul. When she is denied the position she has dreamed about just because she is a girl, she finds a way to hide her true identity as she works with Reese King, a gardener at Como Park.
Tessa Gregory was a very likeable character, and I was rooting for her throughout the entire book. I really enjoyed getting to read all three books in this series, and Lorna Seilstad is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I really liked the historical aspects that were included in the book. Also, the amount of romance between the two main characters was just enough to keep me entertained throughout the entire story. Although this is the third book in the series, I think you can easily read it as a stand-alone story.
