Short Story Summary from Amazon:
Free flowers every month for a year! Recently widowed Amy was delighted to find that she had won. Flowers had always been a big part of her life. But delivery driver Dave brings more than just bouquets. Can he help Amy find happiness again? Will Amy get even more than she bargained for? Find out in this short story about love, loss, friendship and flowers.
If you’re looking for a quick read (only 5k words) with a sweet romantic feel, this is for you.
I really enjoyed this short story by Lia Fairchild! It reminds me of the movie Bed of Roses starring Christian Slater and Mary Stuart Masterson, which I haven’t seen in years! Special Delivery is like a fantasy most girls have: receiving flowers every month for a year! And it helps when the delivery guy is good looking too.
Amy receives a bouquet of flowers every month because of a contest she won. I very quickly identified with Amy: I am the same age as her, she was married for 4 years before her hubby died (I’ve been married just over 3.5 years and thankfully my husband is still with us), and I also have the same last name as Amy.
The story is very short, and has a conclusion. I only wished it was longer as I wanted more of Amy’s story- before and after this story occurred! Yes, it is predictable but it is still enjoyable. Sometimes you just need a sweet and clean love story.
If you have 20- 30 minutes to spare, download this short story from Lia Fairchild! It is worth it. Just remember, you may want more to the story when it is over. I’m off to go watch Bed of Roses now!
