Publisher Description

From the acclaimed bestselling author of Must Love Dogs comes a winning and witty new novel about a woman who emerges from the shadow of her overbearing family and finds herself “dancing with the stars.”

Deirdre Griffin has a great life; it’s just not her own. She’s the around-the-clock personal assistant to her charismatic, high-maintenance, New Age guru brother, Tag. As the family wallflower, her only worth seems to be as gatekeeper to Tag at his New England seaside compound.

Then Deirdre’s sometime boyfriend informs her that he is marrying another woman, who just happens to be having the baby he told Deirdre he never wanted. While drowning her sorrows in Tag’s expensive vodka, Deirdre decides to use his massive online following to get herself voted on as a last-minute Dancing with the Stars replacement. It’ll get her back in shape, mentally and physically. It might even get her a life of her own. Deirdre’s fifteen minutes of fame have begun.

Irresistible and offbeat, Wallflower in Bloom is an original and deeply satisfying story of having the courage to take a leap into the spotlight, no matter where you land.

Fun Fun Fun

Deidre lives in the shadow of her famous brother. Employed as his personal assistant, she manages his life, business, and social media until one day she has just had enough. She quits (again). All she wants to do is dance. After a night of unusual cocktails made with her brother's expensive liquor, she hijacks his social media sites encouraging Tag's followers to vote for her as the wildcard replacement on Dancing with Stars.

She quickly finds that solo dancing in her hotel rooms does not qualify her to dance. It is going to take a lot of hard work and determination and this time she must emerge from the shadows and bloom.

Not up to snuff

I normally like Claire Cook but found myself plodding through this novel. I found most of the characters unrelatable and rather unlikable....
