Blue Ridge Sunrise by Denise Hunter ~ Review

Blue Ridge Sunrise (Blue Ridge Romance, #1)
Lucie's Review:

Zoe Collins returns to her hometown in Copper Creek, Georgia, when her grandmother leaves her the peach grove. Zoe has spent the last  5 years singing backup in Nashville, and living with her boyfriend Kyle. Kyle expects her to sell the orchard and get back to her life in Nashville, but Zoe wants to give it an honest try. Zoe's best friend Hope Daniels encourages her to stay.

Zoe and her daughter move to Copper Creek, but working the peach groves it harder than she thought it would be as she will be working alongside the man who was the reason she left 5 years ago. Cruz Huntley is the manager of her grandmother's grove, and she must face the mistakes that she made when she left.

Zoe's confidence grows as she works the grove and she has ideas to help bolster the success of the grove. I love how her brother is supportive of her, and she looks to the faith of her grandmother and decides that is something that she would like to have too. As she and Cruz come to an understanding they begin to see that this working together maybe the second chance that they didn't even know that they wanted.

I like how their relationship changes over the course of the book, and it shows the grace in their lives. But at times it was hard because of the slow pace due to the heavy backstory that we needed to catch up on. And I really didn't like Cruz's self pity. There is great interaction between Cruz and Zoe, with a good tension as well. Not my favorite by this author, but a story of second chances and redemption.
