There, she meets and quickly befriends the gardener, Gavin. This is a cute and lovable story of Ella learning to balance her heart with her duty.

As a side-note, Book 4, Painting Rain, is my favorite in this series . It can be read as a stand alone, as there are different characters. However, reading the books in order does make it more rich. It follows the story of Ella’s sister, Lorraina, who embarks on a journey to become a professional painter. But it seems this journey is a lot more about self-discovery than she anticipated. It is a beautiful story about redemption, self-worth, and healing, with a sweet romance on the side.
