I received this book in exchange for my honest review as being part of Melissa Tagg's influencer team.
From the back of the book:
Beckett Walker hasn’t stepped foot in Maple Valley in years. There’s no getting past the painful memories, and there’s every chance he’ll be arrested as soon as he shows his face. Which is exactly what happens when he finally returns. Suddenly his dream of adventure as a military lawyer comes skidding to a halt.
Horticulturist Kit Danby has spent too much time missing home and her childhood best friend—Beckett Walker. Now she might have a shot at reclaiming both. After years of living abroad, she returns to run her family’s apple orchard. She has one season to turn a profit and impress the father she barely knows. But she can’t do it alone.
It should be simple: Beckett needs community service hours. Kit needs a helping hand. But there’s more at stake than either of them planned. With a tangled past and futures that look nothing alike, they’ll have to find a way to weather the storms of the present . . . or risk losing everything.
My thoughts on Melissa Tagg:
Melissa Tagg is an amazing writer who is able to pull at your heartstrings. She builds the story line with many colorful, believable characters. She goes back and forth between Logan and Beckett Walker. I personally like Logan the best out of the guys. I can't wait to read Reagan's story. I feel like I can somewhat relate to Reagan. I think Melissa Tagg needs to get married. I have a perfect guy for her. I would have to say Chris Soules, the bachelor who is in the Iowa.
My thoughts on the book:
When I started reading this book, I knew exactly who I could see as Kit Danby. Ashley Benson is the one who popped up in my head, some of you may know her as Hanna Marin from Pretty Little Liars. Kit Danby has been one who has captured my attention because of all that she has been through. Will she fall in love with Beckett? The guy who rescued her from marrying the wrong guy 10 years ago? I love that Kit Danby fights tooth and nail to save the Orchards.
Beckett Walker took a little bit of getting into his story. I felt that the story was a bit disjointed at first until I got further along in the story because to me the connections were feeling a bit forced. He got home after being away so long and the relationships were so strained. It took time to understand what was going on.
The story itself is pretty good. Melissa tugs at the heart strings half way through the book. The plot thickens and you are on your seat wondering what is going to happen. The Walker family continues to grow and to teach us all lessons as time goes on. The family makes you want to meet them and see what life in a small town is like but BEWARE of the drama that comes with small towns. I would rate this book a four out of five stars.
Until next time,
The Traveling Gypsy
