Summary from So Vain Books
When Sarah finds a clairvoyant reading that’s been missing since her teen years, she discovers that she's about to meet the man of her dreams. And she even knows his name: Steven! Let the search commence...

Nayu's thoughts  
Ah, one of my alternate reality selves would love to be a florist, so Sarah's career change seemed idyllic as her relative handed it over to her. I was in heaven reading about it, loved the idea that she had to start from scratch to let her own style break out to customers. 

There are plenty of hitches in the shop, as well as successes as she pays heed to a psychic and crazily only dates those called Steven, or their variations. I may not have agreed with doing that, but she finds the right guy eventually. I was far more interested in all the shop elements, the friends who fully support her and the odd mean character determined to bring her down, issues with supplies, redecorating, competitors etc. They don't though!!! Not in the end :)
