Welcome to my stop on the Growing Flowers: The Pete & Daisy Collection blog tour!

Growing Flowers (Flower Series Collection)
by Tani Hanes
Genre: NA Romance
Release date: January 2019

When they meet, Pete is a student who needs a place to live, Daisy is a young woman in a family bind who needs a husband. She’s a bred and born New Yorker, he’s from the vineyards of Tuscany, but when they meet, sparks fly, as though they were meant to be. Follow our intrepid young couple as they navigate the treacherous waters of being newlyweds, new parents, and a vulnerable family unit trying to protect themselves and their children from the threats of an indifferent and sometimes cruel world.

Through four novels and numerous bonus chapters, our favorite couple and children learn to cope with an old flame, a stalker, wrenching loss, and simply growing up. Ten years pass from beginning to end, but the time flies by as everyone gets older and, hopefully, a little wiser in this loving and rollicking family unit.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm calling dibs for Pete because I see my ideal guy in his character. Nuff said.
Okay, not really. Growing Flowers follows two amazingly written characters, featuring the non-whitewashed topic of family hardships. I can relate to EVERYTHING that takes place in this series. Okay, maybe not the marriage and sex, but everything else. Many of the hardships Pete & Daisy experience I have seen firsthand. It's not easy. And each book just makes the story even better. I absolutely LOVE the family that Pete and Daisy have together. It is so realistic and literally perfect. Tani Hanes did an amazing job in bringing forth the family topic in a very real way. I have never read a series like this, in this kind of a level. I highly recommend it.
Also, the cover(s) are adorable and so beautiful.

I do not remember how I came about it, but I own the first book in this series already. I devoured Pete & Daisy and fell in love with the story. I immediately wanted more, but being a bookworm is rough when you're broke (#bookwormproblems). So when I saw that YABoundBookTours was putting together the blog tour for this collection, I did not question my urge to take part.
DISCLAIMER: I received an ARC of this series for my participation of the blog tour. This is my honest, voluntary review.

About the Author
My name is Tani Hanes, and I am a 51-year-old substitute teacher. I'm from central California and am a recent transplant to New York City. The most important things to know about me are that I'm punctual, I love grammar and sushi, and I'm very intolerant of intolerance. The least important things to know about me are that I like to knit and I couldn't spell "acoustic" for 40 years. I've wanted to write since I was ten, and I finally did it. If you want to write, don't wait as long as I did, it's pointless and very frustrating!
