Book Blurb:

 

The day her grandfather died, Sally’s life changed forever.

Twenty-Two-year-old Sally Rayton returns to the family farm she deserted four years ago to bury her grandfather. Her plan: to settle her grandfather’s estate and return to her life in the city with her boyfriend, Trevor Mattson.

Her childhood friend, Jack Smith, has other ideas.

Jack convinces Sally to transform the farm into a brewery and fulfill her grandfather’s dream while keeping the Rayton Farm in the family. Sally works side-by-side with Jack while Trevor is hundreds of miles away in the city. The more time she spends with Jack, the stronger her feelings are for him. Sally’s torn between her new feelings for her best friend, Jack and her boyfriend, Trevor.

When Trevor shows up to propose to Sally right before Christmas and finds her in Jack’s embrace, she’s unsure which man she loves. Will it be her best friend and farmer, Jack, or will it be rich, successful Trevor? City or Country… only Sally’s heart knows what’s right and true.

 

 

Excerpt:

 

Jack looked where she pointed.

"Sally..." he began.

"Yes?"

"Are you planning on selling it when the farm's made a profit?"

Sally sighed.

He turned her body around, his gaze penetrating hers.

"I don't know," she whispered. "I know Grandpa wanted me to keep it in the family." She furrowed her brow. "I'm not a country girl; my heart belongs to the city."

"Hey, it's okay." He moved a step closer. "Farming is hard work and you have to love it to make it successful." He put a hand on her shoulder. "Don't beat yourself up for following your heart."

Sally winced.

"What?"

"Jack, I'm not sure what my heart wants. Part of me loves being here, carrying on the family name."

"But..." Jack raised an eyebrow warily.

"But I have a life in the city. I've almost finished my degree --"

"You have Trevor," Jack interrupted her. He shook his head.

"What's wrong with that? Yes, I have a life and a boyfriend in the city. I've told you a thousand times my dream is to open my own sidewalk cafe." She folded her arms over her chest. "Don't you want me to be happy, Jack?" Her voice sounded hurt, even to her own ears.

He closed his eyes and rubbed his forehead.

"This isn't going how I wanted it to." He glanced up at her. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply anything. It's just --"

"What?" Sally cocked her head to one side.

The telephone rang inside.

"I have to go answer it. I'll be right back." She ran into the house.

"Hello?"

"Hi beautiful." Trevor.

Why is your featured book a must-read this spring?

 

We think our book is perfect to read right now because love often blooms where you least expect it. Sally and Jack have been friends since childhood. He’s loved her in secret but like a robin, his tune changes when he has the opportunity to show Sally how much he loves her.

 

It also takes place on a farm. The season of spring, summer, fall, and winter take place in the books. We wrote this book as an homage to our ancestors who were all farmers.
