“Hunter’s snappy dialogue and heartwarming prose will appeal to fans of Jan Karon and Mark Simses.” —Booklist review of Sweetbriar Cottage

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.

Review by Teresa
Overall Rating
The first half of this fiction book reads like any other fiction book, not really one of the Christian genre, until about half way through the book. It’s not Urban Cowboy level dysfunction, but the characters are human. Around the middle of the book, characters start having realizations about how they are not making good decisions in their lives apart from God’s guidance; in that way, I think Denise Hunter does something new and interesting in the Christian fiction market, instead of starting with innocent characters. Some people will like it, and some will probably be upset by it. It’s a book about grace, about the role that control and independence play in our lives, and about how a family that is seemingly broken can come together. I like the idea of the grandma character, who leaves her peach orchard to the main character, Zoe, in her will, in an effort to bring Zoe back to her roots. I also like the imagery of Zoe as a lion, wild and untamed when she was younger. If you enjoy an enduring love story and watch Hallmark movies, you will probably like this book. Unfortunately, I kept thinking about Cruz Ramirez from the Cars 3 movie every time I saw Cruz’s name in the book — which took away some of the romance for me (haha, mom fail). The constant emotional dissection for every character does make the book feel like a therapy session at times, and certain plot elements seemed a bit contrived (I don’t want to give away too much of the book by going into detail on this point), but I thought it was a redeeming story overall. I can easily see this book as a Hallmark movie. I received this novel from Book Look Bloggers in return for my honest review. (Posted on 2/4/2018)
