Flourish: The Story of Anne Fontaine by Sarah M. Cradit

Following the death of her dominating mother, Anne Fontaine decides to leave the bayou to reconnect with her estranged half-sister, Adrienne Deschanel. Her hope is to forge a relationship with Adrienne that was not possible when her mother was alive. Secretly, she also hopes to find out if her extraordinary supernatural talents are shared by anyone else.

When Nicolas Deschanel gets wind of Anne's presence, he suspects that she is one of many con artists after his sister's money. Not knowing that her story is true, he engages in a game of cat-and-mouse with her, deciding to have a little fun.

Eventually, circumstances find both of them back at the Deschanel family seat, Ophélie, where secrets and stories come to life.

This one actually kind of threw me off. I have not read the Crimson or House of Night Series, so I was not familiarized with this author’s work. I enjoyed the back story behind it and the cunning twists that the brother made, which, by the way resulted in some pretty embaressing things for both of them. I was really confused about the whole ‘making the garden her b****’ thing until it was clarified that it was a family thing. In the end, this was a good short story and I would love to read more by the author, I give it a 4/5 stars.
