Weekends with You by Alexandra Paige

Can Lucy learn from the flowers she tends to and bravely reach for all that she needs to bloom? Alexandra Paige. Weekends with You. Available Now.

For fans of Beth O’Leary and Josie Silver, a heartwarming and romantic debut told over the course of one year in monthly weekend installments, about found family, new love, and the magic of London.

Flowers have always been the best communicators. They’ve mastered falling over one another in the perfect way to announce exactly what they need: sunlight, water, space. They do not rush. They do not bloom before their time. They do not take without giving in return…

They are nothing like the rest of London.

Between trying to keep her north London flower shop, The Lotus, afloat and falling for a flatmate, Lucy Bernstein is going to have to rethink everything she knows about “creative arrangements.”

Unwillingly becoming one of eight flatmates in a quirky warehouse conversion would have been difficult enough without any romantic entanglements, but when Lucy lays eyes on Henry Baker, the traveling photographer who only comes home twelve weekends a year, she knows her hands will be full with more than just posies. As each weekend progresses, Lucy also finds herself unexpectedly falling for all her new flatmates, along with this bustling but ultimately sweeter home.

Can Lucy learn from the flowers she tends to and bravely reach for all that she needs to bloom?

3.5 stars rounded up

This is an interesting take on a possible long-distance relationship – where one of the protagonists is planning on leaving London when they find the place of their dreams... through a year of visiting a different country each month. Not exactly the basis of a new relationship, and yet Lucy and Henry find that they are strongly attracted to each other, and might just give it a chance, or not.

I found that I liked Lucy far more than Henry and was glad that she had her floristry career as a significant part of her life. And whilst I understood her loyalty to him, even when another suitor appears on the scene, Olivier was clearly a nicer guy and behaved in a much kinder way than Henry did.

The Warehouse weekends were a fun concept for a book, as it made sure we could catch up with all the residents and get a better view of their priorities and lifestyle. I imagine that there could be future installments involving their future loves.
