Book Review: Scattered Petals

Two people running from a past they long to forget, can love conquer the barriers they have erected around their hearts?

While you don’t need to have read Paper Roses (the first book in the series) to understand Scattered Petals, I believe you will have a better appreciation for the characters and their town in this second book if you do.

Scattered Petals picks up right where Paper Roses left off (only with primarily new characters). Different variables played into this story. From a town that refuses to let two people from different nationalities to marry, to a spoiled young man bent on revenge. And that is just what is going on in the background. The main story plays out on the page’s canvas with desperation, guilt, loss, hurt and love.

What kept me reading the story (besides wanting to know how everything would come together) is seeing how the author would tie together the secondary characters and bring them into the plot. And customary to Amanda Cabot (what I enjoy about her fiction) are the endings. She always finds a way to ratchet the tension and bring the reader to care about how it concludes.

I found Scattered Petals a touching love story, with some suspense.

I received this book from the author to be used as an influencer. I received no compensation for my review.


  1. I really thought that this one was a lot better than the first one! I will be reviewing it soon for the tour! I can't wait to read how this series ends! :-)
