Summary

One old farmhouse brought them together. It could also tear them apart.

Gigi has just uprooted her whole world to start a new life. The unexpected gift of a farmhouse in small-town Montana is just what she and her daughter need to escape big-city loneliness. The last thing she needs is attitude from the town's sheriff, the most perfectly attractive and ruggedly handsome man she's ever laid eyes on - and a complete jerk.

Jess knows all about women like Gigi. Beautiful. Sexy. Scheming. She's stolen his sanctuary, the farmhouse that should have been his. But along with a face full of freckles, she's got a sharp wit and a backbone of steel - something he doesn't discover until after making a complete fool of himself. If he can earn back her trust and win her heart, he might just find the home he's always needed.

Gave up half way through

The hero and heroine are not likeable. If the hero spoke to me and treated me like he does the heroine he would have been out on his ear and never invited back.

A great listen and I am eager for more

I admit I have been curious about Devney Perry’s books for some time, especially since her books were being touted as very Kristen Ashley-like. From my perspective, such comparisons can be a double-edged sword for new authors. Do I read it and become disillusioned that the book missed the mark? Or, do I stay away and potentially miss out on a good book?

Well, I was undecided and stayed away until I listened to an audio version of this book that I won via the author’s Facebook page. And now I am kicking myself. Yes, there are a few surface similarities to some of Kristen Ashley’s characters/settings, but The Coppersmith Farmhouse, the author’s debut novel I believe, is more than strong enough to stand on its own.

Georgia, known as Gigi, along with her young daughter, Rowan, is leaving her old life behind and heading to a small town to live in a house she inherited from Ben, a good friend. I enjoyed learning about the town and it was rewarding to listen to a character who was, dare I say it, normal. Gigi was a nurse. She has her head screwed on straight, is a thoughtful and caring person to those around her and is a good mother. There is pleasure in listening about the every day.

Jess, our hero, and the local Sheriff, is a man who keeps himself to himself. His initial dislike of Gigi is based on his erroneous belief that she fleeced Ben of his worldly goods. He makes no bones about showing his dislike of Gigi when they first meet. Once the misunderstanding is resolved, Jess turns on the alpha personality in his attempt to woo Gigi. Yes, there are some bumps along the way but both Gigi and Jess do a good job of communicating with each other to resolve them.

There is a mystery that forms part of the storyline. I am hopeless at guessing who the villains are, so I went along for the ride. I enjoyed this element of the story and it was a surprise to me who the ‘bad guys’ were.

The book contains an epilogue several years in the future. I do enjoy these because I like to read about our main characters living their happily ever after.

The Coppersmith Farmhouse is Book 1 of the Jamison Valley series. As far as I can tell, all books are standalones but some characters make appearances in other books. Don’t forget, it’s a small town.

***
I listened to an audio version of this book that was narrated by Ava Erickson and Joe Arden. I enjoyed listening to both narrators, although the majority of the book is narrated by Ava Erickson. Both narrators did a good job in conveying the character’s emotions. The voice of Gigi’s daughter, Rowan was an absolute delight to listen to.

I read another review that stated there was a lot of background noise during the recording. I heard none of this, so I assume it’s been cleaned up since that time.

Very sweet story

This is a very easy listen , mother and daughter move to new town where she meets the sheriff who quickly tries to take her over ... the subsequent tiffs between her and the sheriff mad me smile , didn't catch on to the little twist at all ...no spoilers , if you want an uncomplicated sweet listen then I recommend as its narrators are top draw for me .
I was lucky enough to win this from the author in a give away , Thankyou and I Will definitely be looking out for further books in the series

Disappointing hero


I did not gel with this book on the whole in any shape or form. I wanted to like it, indeed until 25% I held hope that my issues would be worked through. By 50% I realised that this was a hero that I could only hate, he could not be redeemed in my eyes in any way. He was manipulative, cunning, controlling, had temper issues that were scary and I didnt believe his connection with the heroine. The heroine gave off vibes of not being okay with his controlling ways but was always won over by a kiss or a weak willed apology....till the next time, stupid woman.

The narration was reasonably good, I enjoyed the tonation of the female narrator but I was less enamoured by the male narrator.

On the whole, I’m thinking this authors books aren’t for me. I may give another a try, unless I hear all her hero’s are such jerks.

Excellent

A little mystery and intrigue mixed with a little fate that brings together a hot alpha male and an independent single mom. All in all it was a really good book that kept my interest and had me listening nonstop.

I did enjoy the secondary characters but I did find there too be such an extensive list of characters that when it came down to the bad guys, I had a hard time bringing the characters to mind because there were just so many.

But other than that, I have no complaints and I think as the series goes on, my issue will become a moot point as I get to know the town better. Very much looking forward to it all.

Ava Erickson and Joe Arden are perfection for these characters and I have nothing but praises to say.

4 The Coppersmith Farmhouse Stars

Ahhh I love a small town romance, Gigi is a woman I can stand behind. She is strong of will and of heart; she makes me proud to be a woman. Yep I said that, not only does she have to deal with a lot in her past but she does it with grace and that is rare.

Jess well he “tried” to be a jerk and he just couldn’t pull it off; I never got the jerky vibe from him even when he was being one. I am glad Gigi finally put him in his place. She laid it out; this is not how you can treat me.

Her daughter Row is the cuties, I love when kids are added into stories it livens it up a little. I enjoyed getting to know some of the secondary characters and I am looking forward to maybe some of these characters in books to come.

I really loved Ava’s narration; she is a narrator I look forward to listening to because she puts emotion into her voice. She draws us in and makes us feel a part of the story. And Joe… well just listen to his voice enough said.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

I want to move to Prescott!

Amazing! Wonderful! Spectacular!

I freaking loved everything about this book! There’s love, laughter and a little suspense! It has everything I could want, it’s not just a romance novel without substance. It’s a great introduction to the Jamison Valley series!

The narrators were great! This is the first I’ve read from both Ava Erickson and Joe Arden. They did a fabulous job!

Disappointed

The story had a lot of potential, but it dragged on far too long. Jess was a great H, but Gigi -- although she was a strong & sweet person -- was really dull, and I just didn't buy Jess' life-altering attraction to her.

Also, the way the drama at the end played out was just too ridiculous to be believable. I mean, why kidnap her, drag her from her secluded home in the woods to a busy hub of activity in town, then send your henchman back out to the woods to dig the graves while you stay with her and tell her all about your evil scheme and who was in on it with you? Also, why try to kill a first-trimester fetus first when you plan on killing the mother anyway? Entirely too stupid to be entertaining.

I think I'm so disappointed because I really wanted to love it, but between the dull heroine and the inept bad guy I just couldn't.

Sweet and Addictive!

This was quite an addictive book. The narration was great and I really love everything Ava Erikson narrates. She is so easy to listen to and just get long in the story she's telling. I always love the characters she gives voice to and Georgia was no different. Joe Arden is a nice job as Jess as well. Loved them both for this book.

I see now why everyone loves Devney Perry so much. Her writing is off the charts amazing. I fell in love with this book within the first two minutes of listening. This book is so addictive, sweet, and gives you all kinds of feels. There was never a dull moment and it definitely keeps you thrilled. The romance was sweet and I did like Georgia and Jess together. Rowen was the cutest little girl ever and all the other characters in this book were also very lovable.

The only thing I didn't like were aspect of Georgia and Jess's relationship where he was a little too alpha male and controlling. I wasn't Gerogia to actually stand her ground when it came to Jess instead of him making demands and her giving in immediately, especially when she complained to him about things he did that she didn't like. She needed a bit more of a back bone in their relationship. Other than that I really loved this book.

Greatest story ever

Great narrators, however would of love to hear Joe Arden a lot more, love the lil girl character... GIGI kind of worried/got on my nerves with her insecurities which I found funny because I could see me acting the same way.. huge eye opener for me lol. You must check this story out and can’t wait to listen to the other in this series, which it was the same narrators for all of them

First in a series

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Would recommend to anyone looking for a small town romance.

Which character – as performed by Joe Arden and Ava Erickson – was your favorite?

Rowan, I love kids!

Do you think The Coppersmith Farmhouse needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not with the same couple but with the supporting characters.

Any additional comments?

This was a sweet romance with a touch of mystery. The hero is a bit of a caveman so be prepared!

Very sweet story. Great narration

This is my first story from this author and am happy I gave it a shot. I felt the writing was very sweet, straight forward and evocative. I very much enjoyed how the growth between the characters occured and how the relationship and chemistry took place. The narration was spectacular as always. Eva Erickson conveyed so much emotion, an even though the chapters Joe Arden narrated were minimal, they were still great to listen to. Looking forward to the rest of the story.

Exciting western romance!

This is the first book by this author I’ve listened to and I enjoyed it quite a bit. The heroine is a nurse who befriends a gruff older man in Spokane, WA. She’s a single mom and when he dies he leaves her a house in Montana, which she never knew about. Packing up her daughter and heading out to start a new life is exciting for her. Soon after she arrives she meets the local sheriff and they clash sparks off each other from the start. Eventually, she finds out who he was to her old friend and he starts to see her in a different light too. Before long, they’ve started a romance, but there’s danger in the area from a drug ring that threatens their life together. The narration of the audiobook was well done.
