Home is where the love is…
Colin Wright and Mia Blair grew up in Icicle Falls, but they left years ago—and not on good terms. Now Colin's grandmother, Justine, has died, and they've come home to honor this woman they both loved. That's when they get some unexpected news. They're about to inherit something. Jointly. They just have no idea what. It turns out that Justine's designed a treasure hunt for them, like the ones they enjoyed when they were kids and best friends.
But they're not kids anymore, and they sure aren't best friends. As for that young love they once shared? Well…it's complicated.
On the trail of Justine's treasure, they follow a series of clues that take them down memory lane—ending up at the orchard on Apple Blossom Road. What will they find there? And what did Justine know that they didn't?
As always I like a good clean romantic story, and Ms. Roberts never disappoints. However, this story started off a bit slow for my taste, (however, that was no fault of the authors, I was not feeling my best for a few days) but the pace picked up as they followed the clues as their treasure hunt continues....
The story line at times focuses on what happened as they were growing up. And then returns to the present, in that way we get to be up close and personal with Colin and Mia throughout their growing up years. Eventually, we learn what the misunderstanding was that destroyed their love for one another.
Sheila Roberts writes emotional, clean story lines in her novels, which I always fine refreshing. Many of her novels are filled with human qualities like regret, forgiveness and love. So if you are looking for a hot and steamy romance, you need to look elsewhere!
HOME ON APPLE BLOSSOM ROAD is a sweet romance about two people who drifted apart from one another, because of a misunderstanding. As all sweet as cotton candy stories go... the romance progressed to a happily ever after ending. My favorite "Mind Candy" kind of stories.
I enjoyed the story to the point of awarding it 5 "Apple Blossom" stars. This book is a part of my Nook library.
