AT FAIRFIELD ORCHARD
Fairfield Orchard #1
Releasing Aug 30th, 2016
Emma Cane welcomes you to Fairfield Orchard, where new love blooms and romance is always in season.
For Amy Fairfield, the family orchard is more than a business. With its blossom-scented air and rows of trees framed by the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, it’s her heritage and her future. But right now, it’s also a headache. Putting a painful breakup behind her, Amy has come home to help revitalize Fairfield Orchard. She doesn’t have time for the handsome-distracting-professor who wants to dig into her family’s history for his research.
Jonathan Gebhart knows he needs the Fairfields’ cooperation to make his new book a success. As for Amy-nothing in his years of academia could have prepared him for their sudden and intense attraction. He doesn’t want to complicate her life further, especially since she seems uneasy about him poking around in the past and he knows he’s not the sort of man built for forever. But some sparks can’t help but grow, and Jonathan and Amy may just learn that unexpected love can be the sweetest of all.
At Fairfield Orchard is the first in a new series from Cane. I was a little worried about starting something new with her because I loved her Valentine Valley series so much, but I'm happy to report that I really liked this new series.
You will really love the characters in the story. Or at least the ones you've met so far and there had been a lot of them. Up first you have Amy Fairfield & Jonathan Gebhart. You'll love Jonathan, he's the perfect geek.
Both Amy and Jonathan have some baggage they are dealing with. Amy doesn't handle her's as well as Jonathan does. She had a ton of trouble moving forward. Poor Jonathan takes one step forward with her and four steps back without her.
I do like all the ideas that Amy comes up with for her her family Orchard. Every year my whole family, or almost all of them (the important ones) go apple picking. The place we go to doesn't really have a tasting room like this, (I really wish they did) but they make the best donuts so....
I also enjoyed the history part of the book. It really ties the story together. As a whole the story is a very good one. Of course I can't help noticing that it remembers me of a series by another Avon author. Either way I can' t wait for A Spiced Apple Winter which is out 12/27.
If you enjoy small town romance with big families then you'll love this series.
If you've read At Fairfield Orchard or any other book by Emma Cane I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
Now that her three children are grown, Emma loves spending time crocheting and singing (although not necessarily at the same time), and hiking and snowshoeing alongside her husband Jim and their rambunctious dog Uma.
Emma also writes USA Today bestselling historical romances under the name Gayle Callen.
