Former free spirit Zoe Collins swore she’d never again set foot in Copper Creek or speak to the man who broke her heart. But return she must when her beloved Granny dies, leaving the family legacy to Zoe--a peach orchard nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
When Zoe returns home with her daughter and boyfriend Kyle, she finds that she’s the only person in town who doesn’t expect her to give up the life she’s established far away from Copper Creek. Everyone believes she was born to run the orchard, but how can she make it her home after so many years?
Cruz Huntley never quite got over his first love Zoe Collins, the little sister of his best friend Brady. Not when she cheated on him during their “break,” not when she took off to parts unknown with good-for-nothing Kyle Jenkins, and not even now—five years later.
As life-changing decisions and a history with Cruz hang over Zoe’s head, tensions rise between her and Kyle. Even as she comes to terms with the shifting relationships in her life, Zoe still isn’t sure if she can remain in Copper Creek with her new responsibilities . . . and her first love.
|This book opens with Zoe Collins coming home after five years for her grandmother’s funeral. She has been living in Nashville with a guy named Kyle who is a singer and she sings back up in his band. He wants her to come back with him but when she inherits the peach orchid she decides to give it a go. Mad Kyle says she will come to her senses. Staying in town has also brought her closer to Cruz Huntley, who is running the orchid now and they are being forced to work together. You see Cruz was he first love and still is. You find out he is also the father of Gracie her child. Which he does not know about. This book is much more about coming home again, but about all of the choices made. Some, of course, was mad because of age, anger, hurt, and some by lies. She is working on wanting to also fix her relationship with her father, but that may or may not happen. As you work through this story it becomes clear that love is in the air between Zoe, and Cruz and you want them to have peace, but will Kyle and others give them that. A lot of twists but nothing that you can’t keep up with and overall a good book. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
