I've read and loved a couple of Sarina Bowen's books. This series is one that I could really get my teeth into. Rugged mountain men. What's not to ..Show More »like? Couple that with a dual POV second chance romance and I'm in my element. I've never been a cider drinker (ok, yes, when I was 15, on the rec with my buddies on a weekend), but that is where I drew the line. Reading about apples and cider making on Griffin Shipley's organic farm has me wanting to try out some speciality ciders to see what I've been missing, (the writing was that good). I loved the chemistry between Griff and Audrey, whether it was sexual, or when they were cider making. They truly were a match made in heaven. A light easy read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Looking forward to reading more in the series.
I loved Jude in book 1. I love him even more now I've read his story, and what a story! We follow Jude as he moves back to his hometown of Colebury a..Show More »nd starts working back at his father's garage. Jude thinks his childhood sweetheart, Sophie will be long gone, surprisingly though she's still in town, living in her family home. Neither of them have seen each other since he was sent to prison over 3 years previously. It would seem though that some things haven't changed, firstly their desire for each other, and secondly their need to keep any contact they have with each other a secret. Sophie's dad, the police chief, hates Jude and blames him for the death of his son (Sophie's brother). Sophie still wants answers from Jude about the night her brother died, but Jude can't give her them. No one will answer her questions so she starts her own investigation. So many twists and turns in this excellent story which has some fantastic characters with strong hearts and lots of passion. I was hooked from the beginning and I can't wait to see what Ms Bowen produces next. Whatever it is I'm first in line.
