Blue Ridge Sunrise Book Review


About the Book

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.

My Thoughts

I have a lot of mixed feelings with this book. I love the cover and at first I liked the idea with this story line (though it is a very common story line, so as for being unique it is not.) The setting is the best thing going for this book and I think Denise did a great job with the small town and orchard. The characters I simply couldn't click with. I felt as if some parts where rushed and really what it comes down to is I just wasn't that excited about the story half way in. There isn't really reference to religion, which I wasn't expecting since reading Hunter's last novel. If you are looking for a Christian romance story this might not be the book for you. If you like reading main stream contemporary fiction, you might enjoy this book. My rating is based upon just not clicking with the story line and characters.
Three stars.
