Forget-Her-Nots: 02/07/15

cover artForget-Her-Nots by Amy Brecount White is about a young woman discovering her talent at reading people through flowers and learning more about her deceased mother in the process.

The book opens with Laurie giving a presentation on the language of flowers. in the process, though, she realizes she can also feel a connection with the person she's designing the bouquet for.

I read the book in the midst of the Enola Holmes mysteries which also use the language of flowers as a recurring motif. So while I remember enjoying the magical aspects of the flowers, the specific details haven't stuck with me.

Have you read The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh? I am reminded of that book after reading your review for Forget-Her-Nots. Although the plot is very different.
