The Holloway women each have a special gift, passed down through generations, each one a little different. Juliette possesses a magical green thumb, which makes her job managing the local florist shop a dream. She may be a bit wild, but she knows what she wants: to save enough money to buy the shop from her boss. Then in marches Logan O'Connor, more annoyingly handsome than ever, turning all her plans upside down.

Logan hasn't been back on Pine Cove Island since he was eighteen and broke Juliette's teenage heart. Now it turns out he's her boss's nephew--and will be spending his days remodeling the shop and barking orders. At her.

For the sake of the business, Juliette will have to ignore their simmering attraction and work with Logan. But that doesn't mean she has to make things easy for him. Because no one knows better than she that one tiny, perfectly planted bit of garden magic could uproot Logan's own plans and keep him out of her way. And nothing would make her happier. At least that's what she thinks . . .

We are only on book #2 but I can tell you already that this is going to be a fun series. I just love the whole idea of it. The small-town, along with the romance and the fun idea of magic just makes for a good book. Or a Hallmark movie. Either one, I'm glad I get to enjoy it. 

Don't Touch my Petunia is like I said book #2 of the Holloway Girls series. A little Charmedish, right! Both do have magic in it. But unlike Charmed there hasn't been and demons running around in the story. Just pigheaded people. 

I really liked Juliette in the first book. She seemed that all she cared about were her flowers and cousin. You learn so much more about her and how she ticks in this story. The girls has layers. Not all of them reasonable or even nice at times. 

As much as I liked her she was a issue for me at times in the book. Because of her hurt, past and present she lashes out at the wrong person, Logan. He does nothing to deserve her actions but yet it still happens. I don't want to get into to much because it's better being read for yourself and learning all this. The good part is that her bad behavior doesn't last for long. It does take away slightly about how I felt about her but since I'm more of a hero driven reader I was okay with it. 

I can't say much about Logan other then I really liked him. He's a great guy who it seems has always done the right thing. All he got, he deserved. Good man! 

As a whole the story was good. I enjoyed the new characters that entered the story and I'm looking forward to what's next. I do wish that the author had more of Emma in the story and Hunter isn't in the story at all and I don't even remember his name being said throughout the book. Since this is a new series I would have liked a little cross over between the characters. It was almost like...your story is done, move on! When I read and enjoy a series I want to really get to know the characters and have them in my life. I know as series get bigger and the author adds more books into it some characters get lost but this was only book two. 

I know it must sound like I had a few issues, well I did. It didn't take about away my enjoyment of the story but it did make it only say a three star book. I am looking forward to the next book. I want to see how this series goes on.
