The Daisy Chain by Heather B. Moore

The Daisy Chain by Heather B. Moore

Summary from Goodreads:
Welcome to the Aliso Creek Novella Series

Liz, Gemma, Arie, Jess, and Drew have been best friends since creating “the Five” at Aliso Creek High School. But that was over ten years ago, and each is still trying to find that perfect someone... if perfect is even possible. 

Actually, Jess Giles does find her perfect match, but since Charlie’s several years older than she, they never have a moment of harmony from his adult kids who protest the marriage. When Charlie dies in a tragic accident, his kids add insult to injury and sue Jess for her share of the inheritance. The only person Jess trusts for financial advice is Charlie’s financial planner, Preston Michaels. Just talking to Preston on the phone makes Jess feel flustered, yet strangely comfortable at the same time, so she puts off meeting him for as long as possible. When Jess has to attend the formal hearing, she’s about to find out if the man she’s been talking to over the phone for several months lives up to the voice that she’s grown attached to.

My Review:
The first book I read in this Aliso Creek series was Third Time's the Charm.  The novellas can be read in any order, but I found that the order I read them in was perfect for me.  There may be some spoilers if you read them in another order.  But not huge spoilers.  I just think that the order I read them in made sense and I knew what the author was talking about.

This is the order that I read them in:
Third Time's the Charm
The Daisy Chain
Picture Perfect (in A Timeless Romance Anthology: Spring Vacation Collection)
Lost Then Found
One Chance

I liked this story for the healing that went on with the main character, within herself and her relationships with others.  The romance was sweet and fairly clean.

Warnings: Heavy kissing, death of loved one

I would let my 15 year old daughter read this book based on cleanliness, but I do not think that she would understand the situations and feelings involved with the characters.  They are definitely adult.
