Publisher's Summary

Iris Chance is turning 33. She's an independent woman, the owner of the Sunflower Coffee and Tea Company in Hidden Falls, Oregon. Hidden Falls boasts clean air, natural beauty, good neighbors. The only problem is that there are zero interesting single men and Iris wants a baby. She'd love the whole package - the love story, the sexy romance with a hero who will sweep her off her feet - but she doesn't have time to wait for Mr. Right. He may lose his way and never show up. She decides to start a family with the help of a sperm bank, knowing she'll have her large family to support and encourage her as a single mom. When the new High School English teacher, Geoff McLeod, walks into her cafe and into her life he seems perfect. There's only one problem.
Geoff McLeod never imagined his wife would end their six-year marriage with a text message. Reeling from her betrayal, he moves to Hidden Falls to teach English and Creative Writing. He's got zero interest in women or dating until he meets Iris Chance, the intriguing woman who bakes the best Morning Glory muffins he's ever tasted. He can't imagine starting his day without stopping in on his way to work for coffee and a muffin and to see the sexiest woman who ever donned an apron.
Iris is the oldest girl in a family of 11 kids. She's always been the stand-in mother to her younger siblings. She's got so used to looking out for other people and listening to their problems that she's become the confidante and unofficial therapist of half the town. She can see that the new English teacher has some emotional baggage dragging along behind him. He looks like he can use a friend and Iris has never been able to turn away from someone in pain. She's prepared to be his friend, but she would never get involved with someone who is still officially married.
But love has a funny way of messing up the best-laid plans.

A lovely Romance


Iris in Bloom is the second book featuring the adult children of Jack and Daphne Chance. Iris Chance runs The Sunflower Coffee and Tea Company in Hidden Falls, her families home town. Single and in her thirties, she discovers that she may have a shorter window of time to get pregnant than she thought and decides to go it alone as a parent using a sperm donor.

Geoff McLeod is a new arrival in town, after a shock split from his wife. He is the new English and creative writing Teacher at Hidden Falls High School. When he meets Iris at her shop he finds a whole lot more than a freshly brewed coffee.

Despite her reservations because of Geoff’s marrital situation and her decision to become a parent, Iris cannot ignore their attraction.

I am really enjoying listening to this series, it’s well written by Nancy Warren and well narrated by Teri Schnaubelt. While it is undoubtedly an adult book, it really would hold appeal for most lovers of the romance genre due to there not being a great deal of sexual content.

The one thing that I dislike about the narration may well be something that appeals to other people. The intimate scenes are read in much the same way as the rest of the book and in my opinion it could have been read with a little more passion.

I am pleased to report that we get to see how things are with Evan in this book too. I am loving the sense of family and the continuity. Iris in bloom flows nicely from Kiss a Girl in The Rain.

All in all this is a pleasing addition to the series with no cliffhangers and a HEA.

Not as big a hit, but still good

Another good audio narration from Teri! I enjoyed the voices she did for these characters and the pacing of her voice. I will say she can put a little more passion into the passionate scenes, but overall I liked listening to her reading and I think it adds a nice depth to the story. I give her audio a 4/5 stars.

As for storyline I didn’t like this one as much as the prequel and first book in the series. Warren certainly is keeping with the theme of taking chances with Iris deciding to have a baby by herself and Geoff leaving his wife behind when she no longer wants him and looking towards another woman to help him heal. I thought it was a little cliche to have her find someone that actually wants to be with her instead of asking for advice or being her friend as soon as she decides to have a kid on her own. It was sweet how their romance developed as both parties weren’t super into it in the beginning due to life events. But over time they were able to develop feelings and the other people in Iris’ life are very supportive of her decisions which makes for less drama, which I approve of for this story! I give it a 4/5 stars.

It feels like visiting family

This is book three in the take a chance Series, and is about Iris the eldest Chance daughter. Who owns the Sunflower coffee and tea Company. As the eldest daughter spends her time nurturing everyone else.
Coming up to her 33 birthday Iris decides to have a baby by artificial insemination. At the same time Geoff the new English teacher takes an interest in Iris. I love Geoff and Iris together they were a great couple. Unfortunately after being bitten with a man who went back to his wife. Iris didn’t feel secure enough until Geoff became divorced. For me it felt like visiting family after listening to three of these Chance family adventures. At first frustrated with Iris, but still enjoyed it and looking forward to number four
