The book starts off with a bang when Vicki is stuck at Portland when the city is destroyed by a terrorist bomb. From there we also meet Ambrose who is trying to get home, and the two of them try and help each other. Read more here
Life in Rose Tinted Glasses
I warmed to both Ambrose and Vicki as characters and really liked watching the dynamics of their relationship change as the story progressed. Both characters definitely changed and developed as people as the book went on, and all the changes were positive. Read more here

I have to be honest and say that I don’t usually read dystopian or science fiction type books because I just find them too unlikely to happen or unbelievable even for a vivid imagination like mine. That was so not the case for ‘Poppy Bloom’ as I loved reading it and I found the situations described entirely plausible and believable. Read more here

#Guest Post: Where did the book idea come from?
What I didn’t really like was being left with a huge, out of this life proportions cliffhanger at the end of the book. I mean come on! Now it’s all I can do to not eat my nails as I wait for the next book to come out to learn what happens next! Read more here
Poppy Bloom by Rebekah Dobson
Available from AMAZON
Vicki Morel believes she and Will, her gorgeous fiancé, have it all. They’re living the American dream. That is, until Portland, Oregon is leveled by a terrorist grade light weapon, and she loses Will at the airport.
Ambrose Palamo is an aviation student who wants one thing: to go home to Samoa. But when Portland is leveled, and he meets Vicki, he promises to help her find her fiancé instead. What he doesn’t expect is the feelings that start to form for her as they search the dangerous Oregon woodlands.
Sometimes love isn’t what you think it is.
The poppies bloom reminds them of what they’ve lost, while giving them the courage to face a brand new future.
