Like a butterfly on a summer breeze, love rarely lands where it’s expected.

Working for her dad’s landscaping business stifles Linnea Ranta. When she’s invited to design and build a community garden with an intriguing master carpenter, she seizes the chance to unfurl her wings, but at what expense to her heart?

Logan Dermott eases back his flirting when he senses Linnea’s fragility, but she has more backbone than he suspected. As they work together, Logan finds he’s falling for her, but it may be too late to win her love.

Will Linnea break free of her chrysalis and fly away before Logan realizes what he almost had?

My thoughts:  BUTTERFLIES ON BREEZES is the second book in Ms. Comer's Urban Farm Fresh Romance series, and it does stand alone, but readers will want to read the first one Secrets of Sunbeams to get story on the goat that is mentioned often in passing in this book. 

Logan is an accomplished pianist, and has been bitten by a wanderlust bug, but when he meets shy, sweet Linnea, he is tempted to stick around just to make her blush. It becomes more than a game when another guy asks Linnea out and Logan realizes maybe he does want her for herself. But he has to decide what is more important? Going where his itchy feet lead, getting a college degree and doing what he loves, or working construction just to be near Linnea. Decisions, decisions. 

Linnea does start out as sweet and shy, but by the baseball game she's knocked out of the field and does a complete one-eighty on the personality scale. Suddenly she's standing up for herself, moving out, moving on, and making decisions and making an enemy out of her dad and oldest brother. I hated her making decisions against her parents/family and causing relationship problems, but it does end well.

I didn't come to care for these characters as much as I wanted to, but it was nice to see plans for a community garden coming to life and watching these two young people find their wings and begin to fly. 

Warning for the conservative readers, there is some drinking (wine) involved. 

If you like sweet romances, then BUTTERFLIES ON BREEZES is a book to consider. 

I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

A nice review of Butterflies on Breezes. I haven't started reading this series by Comer yet, but have read some of her other urban farms books.
