Inside The Covers:

Apple Valley, Washington, is where starting over means surprising new chances, facing trouble always brings a helping hand—and the most unlikely hopes can forever come true…

     Apricot Sunshine Devereux-Miller needs to stay lost.  Her eccentric aunt's home in Apple Valley is the perfect place to forget her cheating ex-fianc√© and get her no-longer-perfect life back under control. Plus, it couldn't hurt to fix up the house and turn its neglected orchard into a thriving business.  And if Apricot can keep Deputy Sheriff Simon Baylor's two lively young daughters out of mischief, maybe she can ignore that he’s downright irresistible—and everything she never dreamed she'd find ...

     Simon isn't looking to have his heart broken again.  He already has his hands full raising his girls. And lately he's thinking way too much about Apricot's take-charge energy and unwitting knack for stirring up trouble. He can't see a single way they could ever be right for each other. Unless they can take a crazy chance on trusting their hearts—and risking the courage to finally find their way home.

My Review:

Fans of small town romance will certainly enjoy this charming story. I have never read this author before, but I am adding her to my buy list. Book #3 in The Apple Valley Series, this story had me turning page after page with its mix of fun romance, humor, and likeably quirky characters.

Apricot is the funny heroine with a heart of gold that comes to town to lick her wounds after calling off her wedding to her cheating ex fiance. She made me laugh at the picture of her riding an old bicycle in a pink wedding dress after her truck broke down near her aunt's orchard. Simon is the sheriff who ends up helping her and they can't seem to not run into each other. Neither were looking for love, but fate had something else in mind for them.

Add to the mix some cute little girls, hippie relatives, a crazed sister-in-law, and some kittens led by Handsome and you have a a wonderful story that will entertain you on a lazy summer afternoon. This series is definitely worth checking out!
