The new series is set in Vermont. True North is populated by the tough, outdoorsy mountain men that populate the Green Mountain State. They raise cows and they grow apples. They chop a lot of wood, especially when they need to blow off steam. (Beards are optional but encouraged.)
If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the orchard.
The last person Griffin Shipley expects to find stuck in a ditch on his Vermont country road is his ex-hookup. Five years ago they’d shared a couple of steamy nights together. But that was a lifetime ago.
At twenty-seven, Griff is now the accidental patriarch of his family farm. Even his enormous shoulders feel the strain of supporting his mother, three siblings and a dotty grandfather. He doesn’t have time for the sorority girl who’s shown up expecting to buy his harvest at half price.
Vermont was never in Audrey Kidder’s travel plans. Neither was Griff Shipley. But she needs a second chance with the restaurant conglomerate employing her. Okay—a fifth chance. And no self-righteous lumbersexual farmer will stand in her way.
They’re adversaries. They want entirely different things from life. Too bad their sexual chemistry is as hot as Audrey’s top secret enchilada sauce, and then some.
Review by: Amy E
What a fun book!! Audrey and Griff are a breath of fresh air. Their book was light and airy with some drama and a little angst mixed in here and there.
Griff is rough and gruff. Living a life he didn't necessarily choose for himself but one he lives anyway. He doesn't think he needs anything else until Audrey walks back into his life.
Audrey is this beautiful character. Her exuberance for life and cooking runs off on you. I was ready to head to the farmers market after finishing this book! Her life hasn't always been easy but, she never gives up and always gives her all.
I enjoyed every moment of this book and can't wait to see where this series will take us next.
