There was more than one thing that compelled me to sign up to help reveal the trailer for Michelle Jester’s The Funeral Flower. First there was the title. I mean, take another look at it. It just inspires so many questions in my mind, drawing me in.
Then there’s the summary, which you’ll find below the trailer. Death, betrayal, love… and, by the sounds of it, a healthy dose of lust. It’s generally a promising combination.
So, let’s take a look at the trailer, shall we?
I don’t know about you, but that definitely left me wanting more. And it raised so many more questions! This book is, without a doubt, going on my to-read list.
About the Book
Devastated by the death of her grandfather, six-year-old Kelly Rodgers barely manages to cope with the profound loss. Already facing issues at school, she finds herself spiraling deeper into despair, when a fateful interaction through the fence in her backyard gives her hope. In the years following, Kelly realizes that life’s tragedies can be dealt with through acceptance; until another series of agonizing events leaves her heart in pieces.
Finding herself thrown into new surroundings, Kelly embraces her life and resolves to never fall in love. That decision is easy to keep until her junior year when she is drawn by an unavoidable attraction to the new guy, tormented James Delaney. The moment he looks up at her and smiles, her body betrays her. And he notices. She is determined to avoid him, but soon Kelly is forced to face the inevitable truth: She doesn’t want to avoid James… and he won’t let her.
Even though tragedy always follows love.
This book is intended for mature audiences due to critical subject matter. Due to mature content, recommended for Ages 17+.
About the Author
I am a hopeless romantic (I think this is the most important thing to know about me). In addition, I live in Greenwell Springs, Louisiana with my husband and high school sweetheart. Together we have a son and daughter.
Throughout my life writing and photography have been my main creative outlets. Especially when I am stressed, I know I can go to either of those things and pour out that anxiety into something good and productive.
