Author: Shannon Guymon

Series: Love & Flowers #1 (but you should read the Love & Desserts and Love & Trust series first)

Released: June 10, 2014


Book Summary:

Garrett Murphy is used to rejection. As a child, he was rejected by his mother and as a man he was rejected by Jane Kendall. Going without love has turned Garrett into a man who doesn’t trust in a woman’s heart. So when he meets Rayne Nyman, she’s too good to be true. She’s beautiful, talented and sweet. She also happens to be a world renowned pianist. He knows there’s no way she’d ever want to stay in Fircest with him when she could be living the life she was born to. Rayne is determined to prove him wrong and show him that love can be forever but when she comes under fire and her life is put in danger, she might not have the chance.




Falling for Rayne is the first book in Shannon’s new series but it is not the first book set in Fircrest.  This is actually book #7.  So start with book one in the Love and Dessert Trilogy:  You Belong With Me because you’ll want to meet the women of Belinda’s Bakery. Then work you way through that series followed by the Love and Trust series.  Then read this one.  It’s just better that way.  I’d fallen in love with Garrett before even picking up this book.

Garrett was one of my favorite side characters in the first 2 series set in Fircrest.  In fact when I finished Tough Love I emailed Shannon asking if Garrett would get his own story. She replied that he would…

My next trilogy is called Love and Flowers and it will be based on Garrett and his brothers. Never fear, I wouldn’t leave him hanging.

As soon as I saw Falling for Rayne was available I borrowed it from the Kindle Lending Library.  Shannon is a master at writing characters that I can’t help but fall in love with. Her books are all squeaky clean and yet full of romance.  They all follow a similar pattern but I like that I know what to expect and know that I am going to get the happily ever after that I want. That’s the reason I pick up these books. Garrett and Rayne had great chemistry and I loved their interactions.

I’m looking forward to the next two books in the series as I love the new characters who have been introduced.

If you love clean romance check out Shannon’s books.
