full bloom review

"Winter in Full Bloom" by Anita Higman is the novel of an emptynester-widow who has attempted to reunite the relationship with her mother that is 10 years estranged.  Lily's mother is a piece of work.  She's a nasty woman that no one would normally be friends with.  In fact, she had to hire someone to be her friend.  Upon meeting her mother, she discovers that she has a twin sister that was given up for adoption due to illness.  She travels to Australia to meet her sister and along the way meets Marcus, a fellow Texan living in Australia, and sparks start to fly.
This book is a good book for reading on the beach.  It amuses without being to involved or hard to follow.  It is an easy read.  I like that the reader can get to know Australia.  I have never been and other that Crocodile Hunter, know very little. This book will make you want to go there on  whim, cuz..... well, why not?   I only wish the reader could have gotten into Lily's head a bit more.  I received this book for free in exchange for a review from The Book Club Network.
