Twelve men…one woman…plenty of dandelions. Eva Merida has her life in order. She loves her job at the Furry Friends Rescue League and has a loving, supportive family. But she’s still missing that one special person to stand by her side. When she comes in third place on the local TV version of “The Bachelor,” entitled Accept this Dandelion, she nearly loses all hope for romance. Fortunately, the TV station decides to do a second season of the dating show…and they name Eva as the Bachelorette! With a plethora of dating mishaps recorded for TV, Eva finds herself falling for several men at once…including the show’s host. Will she find love at last or simply embarrass herself in front of the entire city?

My Review

Dandelions on the RoadDandelions on the Road by Brooke Williams
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Eva was previously a contestant on a local Bachelor-style show. She came in third place, and is about to be the Bachelorette on the newest season of the same show. She is a kind and loving person who is ready to be in a serious relationship. Brian is a local news anchor who has worked with Eva once in a while when she has done tv spots to try and get local shelter animals adopted. He has been attracted to her, but never found the courage to ask her out. Now he is hosting the show where she will be dating 12 other men and looking to find love.

This a a sweet charming love story without a lot of conflict. It presents this style of television dating show in the best possible light and with minimal drama. The characters are all very genuine, and everyone's intentions seem pretty good throughout. Eva is a likable character, and I was hoping that she would find happiness in a relationship. That said, there isn't much depth to the story. Reading the synopsis will provide a pretty good idea of what to expect and there aren't many surprises. Overall, it was a nice sweet romance. I haven't read the first book in the series, but I felt that this book stood alone just fine.

About the Author
Brooke Williams writes in a sleep-deprived state while her daughters nap. Her romantic comedy is best read in the same state. Brooke has twelve years of radio in her background, both behind the scenes and on the air. She was also a television traffic reporter for a short time despite the fact that she could care less about hair and make-up. Today, Brooke stays at home with her daughters and works as a freelance writer for a variety of companies. When she isn’t working for paying clients, she makes things up, which results in books like “Dandelions on the Road.”  Brooke is also the author of " Mamarazzi," "Accept this Dandelion," “Wrong Place, Right Time,” “Someone Always Loved You,” and “Beyond the Bars.” She even has children's books on the market, such as "Shower in the Rain" and looks forward to releasing “Baby Sheep Gets a Haircut” in June 2016 with Wee Creek Press.

Note from the Author on the book's inspiration:

I wrote "Accept this Dandelion" in a silly, sleep-deprived mood and thought that was it. But the characters in the book kept coming back to me, begging me to continue the story. Eventually, I listened, turned the tables, put a woman in charge, and created "Dandelions on the Road." I got so much joy from writing it, I'm glad I did! Now I just hope those reading it get even half the pleasure I got from writing it.
