Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Secrets at Maple Syrup Farm
Publisher: Carina UK
Published: July 17th, 2015
I read this for the first time in 2015 but somehow forgot to post my review anywhere so I’m endeavouring to rectify that now. This is a lovely story of Lucy following her Mum’s instructions and going on an adventure for a year! She jumps on a bus and ends up in Ashford, Conneticut where she persuades Clay to let her be an assistant on the Maple Syrup Farm that he has inherited. Whilst this works as a standalone, Ashford is the setting for other books by this author and it was great to reconnect with some of the characters from that story in this one.
As the title implies, there are so many secrets to be revealed and the great characters and the relationship development seemed to happen at an appropriate pace. I recommend you not to read this whilst you’re hungry – the sumptuous descriptions of the delicious food will have your mouth watering and had me snacking whilst reading! I also learnt a lot about Maple Syrup, too!
This is another brilliant story from this highly talented author and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it.
I requested and received a copy of this novel via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.
A truly decadent and delicious romance, perfect for long summer days and nights
Maple sugar kisses.
Lucy would do anything for her mom…but she never expected to end up promising to leave her. After her mom got sick, Lucy dropped everything to take care of her, working all hours in a greasy diner just to make ends meet and spending every spare moments she had by her mom’s hospital bedside.
Now, Lucy is faced with a whole year of living by her own rules, starting by taking the first bus out of town to anywhere…
Except she didn’t expect to find her next big adventure just around the corner! Especially when on her first day in town she bumps into grumpy, but oh-so-delicious Clay amidst the maple trees. Surrounded by the magic of Ashford, Lucy has the chance to change her life forever and finally discover a life she wants to live!
Fall in love with Ashford, Connecticut in this dazzling and beautiful romance from bestselling author Rebecca Raisin.
