Publisher's summary

Julianne Baker seemingly has it all. Working for a nationally published nature and gardening magazine in Manhattan and leading a glamorous life in the Big Apple...or is she?

Julianne returns to her hometown of Lilac Glen, Georgia to dig into an article on family-based nurseries and floral businesses; something she already knows plenty about after growing up surrounded by her family's floral shop and greenhouses. Going back home down south isn't something Julianne gets to do often.

While there, she meets Tucker Case; a handsome investor and real estate manager who is trying to fit in as a farm owner in the town he now calls home after inheriting the picturesque land from his uncle, making him the Bakers' neighbor. As days get longer, and spring starts to reawaken, will flowers be all that bloom?

Join Julianne as she opens her heart to new adventures while learning to take life a little slower down back roads; bending with the curves instead of against them.

Please note that minimal changes have been made since the audiobook's recording that you may notice if following along with a visual copy, including a minor character's mention's name from Colin to Kevin.

Sweet Romance Stars

Short stories sometimes can be hard to connect with the characters because you have such a short amount of time to get to know them and get the story moving along.
But I feel like I know Julianne pretty well, coming home isn’t always easy and you can tell it’s a place she loves but she also really loves her career.

Tucker I think we only skimmed the surface of, we did get a lot of Julianne and maybe a little too little of Tucker. Though I will say I really enjoyed the parts we did get of him. He really is trying to make the best out of the situation he finds himself in.

The meet and friendship was sweet and seemed natural not forced or really any insta-love. (Thank you for that)
Also no dramalama!!! You know me and how much I hate that, this was just a sweet story of finding love and how to make it work.

“Footsteps apart tonight, almost a thousand miles tomorrow.” – Loved this quote (it was a little bigger but this part of it struck a chord with me)

If there was one thing I kind of wanted more of was the connection between Tucker and Julianne, I wanted a full-on romance date. A little tension, longing. But that is just me, romantic to a fault.

I liked the narration, I wasn’t sure at the beginning she kind of gives you a lot of the story in a short amount of time and I had to go back and listen again. But once I got the hang of how she delivers the story I quite enjoyed it.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Sweet and short Love Story!

I love the cover! This was my first Angie Ellington's book. I like this sweet short love story. I love the two main characters, Julianne and Tucker. Julianne is a talented photo-journalist for a nature magazine in New York City. Tucker is an investor and real estate manager who learn to be a farmer after he had inherited properties and the farm from his uncle. They meet together when Julianne return to her hometown, at Lilac Glen. I like how they learn to know each other, how the love between them seems already there and grown rapidly. This story is well written and fast pace. I was hooked from the beginning till the end. Unfortunately, the narration was too fast for me, so I wasn't able to listen without reading at the same time, but the narrator has a great voice. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Warmed my heart

Would you listen to Spring in Lilac Glen again? Why?

Yes. It's a feel good romance without the need to go into the bedroom to be romantic.

Who was your favorite character and why?

loved them all. I related to Julianne's mom, to be honest, and found her to be a kindred spirit.

What does Essie Heart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

a sweet mix of range in voices and styles. endearing...

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I don't want to give away spoilers...so I'll just say...there were a few spots that were funny and parts that were heartwarming.

Any additional comments?

easy listening...short but sweet. I don't have time for 10 hr listens. I start them & never finish. I love novellas and this author is now a fave

Sweet!

This was a sweet quick listen. It was a super sweet story and I wish I had a Tucker of my own. The characters were very likable and you could envision the small town and the beautiful flowers.

Such a sweet book

I must admit that this story was delightful. it is refreshing to have an author that can deliver a book book that reads so easily without all the naughty bits. Dont get me wrong some books require the naughty. But it's so great like cleansing your palette whenever an author provides the public with innocent reading. this story was a pleasure to read and i really enjoyed it. the narrator was easy to listen to. I highly recommend this book to you all. I did in fact recieve this book for free in exchange for a honest review.

Cute story, poor narration

This is a cute, short story. I would have enjoyed it more if the narrator had slowed down, some of the sentences ran together and it felt rushed. Essie Heart has a nice voice, better pacing would have improved this..

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this audiobook. Clean romance that wasn’t rushed & left me with a smile. Essie’s voice was pleasant & youthful. This is one I’ll listen too again next winter to get me in the mood for spring!

Spring in Lilac Glen

Julianne Baker seems to have it all but really she is struggling just like most of the rest of us. A couple of missed paychecks and shes going to be in trouble. Although to everyone looking in she lives in New York and everyone in New York is glamorous and rich. Her new job assignment is to return home and interview her parents and some other local business owners and take lots of pictures. Except while she is on location at her parents she meets a man and her work nemesis is after her job putting it in jeopardy. This is a sweet romantic story. Essie does a nice job on the narration.

Sweet Small Town Romance

I enjoyed listening to this story and enjoy that it is a clean story. The characters are interesting and the story line is interesting too. The descriptions were good and this is a nice spring story.

So sweet

Spring in Lilac Glen is a sweet and clean romance that is appropriate for teens on up, in my opinion. The storyline is fresh and has a nice pace and the characters are realistic and well developed. The narrator has a pleasant voice that is spot on for this book and her performance is nicely done.
