During the growing season, I enjoy working in my flower garden. I once thought it would be fun to grow flowers to sell, but it was never more than a thought.

But for Phoebe Sinclair, it was her dream.

Today, I’m featuring my friend and fellow writer Hope Toler Dougherty on my blog. Her new contemporary romance novel, Forever Free, book #4 in her Forever Series, will be released on January 23, 2024. Each of the books in the series is about one of the four Daniels siblings. I learned a lot about running a cut flower farm, and I really enjoyed getting to know Phoebe, Heath, and Phoebe’s sweet grandfather.

You can order Forever Free from Amazon and other booksellers. Here’s the Amazon link: free

Phoebe Sinclair combines her love of flowers and teaching to nurture a cut flower business on her grandfather’s land. She’s got her hands full growing the farm, growing her customer base, and dealing with her growing attraction to the aloof man who’s volunteered to help make her farming dream come true.

Can she focus on her main job, or will a pair of yearning eyes and a hurting heart divert her worthy goals?

Heath Daniels has resigned himself to a life of singleness as he watches his siblings couple up and set wedding dates. Tracking their happiness, however, is more difficult than he expected. A real struggle, in fact.

Feeling the old troubles from his college years creeping back to tempt him, he’s propelled to volunteer for manual labor, leaving him exhausted every day, but out of danger. His additional hours of agri-business, however, lead to different struggles with an intriguing farmer.

Does he have the strength to resist old temptations as well as a beautiful new one too?
