Heidi MainCary, NCAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fast-paced, deep character backstory, amazing premise ~ awesome read!November 16, 2017Heidi MainCary, NCAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Blue Ridge Sunrise by Denise Hunter is fabulous. The novel starts with the amazing premise of Zoe returning home for a funeral and reading of the will, only to discover that maybe she isn't ready to leave Copper Creek for good.
The backstory is deep and wide, allowing the author to explore deep feelings and hurts. The plot is fast-paced and the characters three-dimensional. Blue Ridge Sunrise was a quick and fun read!
Sharon Phillips2 Stars Out Of 5ok bookNovember 16, 2017Sharon PhillipsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Not really what I was expecting. Yes, as someone else says, a bit too much bouncing back into her previous life. I also am a bit concerned that this book is published by a Christian publisher, yet, I'm more than halfway through this book, and see no redeeming qualities in the characters. Sure wish there was more wisdom in this.
Kara LynnWVAge: 18-24Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Not as good as her last one but still good nonetheless!November 14, 2017Kara LynnWVAge: 18-24Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3The previous book, Sweetbriar Cottage was one I raved about - I loved it so much. This one is just as good and Denise Hunter continues to just get better and better with not only her romance but her plot, character deepening, humor and just her downright storytelling overall. It's just so good!
Cruz is one of my favorite male leads from any of her books and I just had to laugh since Zoe has red hair and Cruz is Spanish - an I Love Lucy thing going on perhaps? I also just felt very well connected with the characters and their stories, and after all her books, Denise Hunter can continue making each character so unique? That's awesome!
It was also a breath of fresh air, 'traveling' to Georgia, walking through the peach orchards and experiencing life in little Copper Creek. I also love the little gritty elements Denise Hunter has started adding into her books, such as abuse, adultery (in her previous book), etc. It creates realism, and her Christian inspiration - as always - is spot on without coming across as preachy. You will definitely get the warm-fuzzies with this read, and it'll be one you won't want to put down. I completely and utterly enjoyed it.

Rebecca ManeyGastonia, North CarolinaAge: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5The Gift of Second Chances!November 8, 2017Rebecca ManeyGastonia, North CarolinaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4" . . . . . .second chances were one of life's sweetest offerings."
Zoe Collins had been a red-headed spitfire in her day, but now it seems that life has doused the fire out of Cruz Huntley's "leona"; except that she's not his lioness any more. Maybe she never was, nevertheless, she's back in Copper Creek and they are going to have to find a way to get along, since she just inherited her grandmother's peach orchard and he is the orchard manager.
Zoe Collins is determined to make a fresh start, finally summoning the courage to leave her arrogant, over possessive boyfriend; hopeful that she might be able to raise her four year old daughter on the land of her legacy. She just never counted on having to face Cruz again so soon. He held her young heart in his hands and dropped it, but that was five years ago. Can they put their differences aside when there is still such a gaping secret between them? So much is at stake.
When circumstances take a turn for the worse, Zoe can practically hear her grandmother's words of faith whispered softly in her ear, " He's got me this far. I guess He can carry me the rest of the way". Enjoy Denise Hunter's ability to weave a somewhat predictable story into one that has a remarkable ending!
Candicervaldez3 Stars Out Of 5OK ReadNovember 8, 2017CandicervaldezQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Blue Ridge Sunrise is what I have come to expect with a Denise Hunter book. Always great on the chemistry! I enjoyed reading it, but it wasn't a book that I couldn't put down. I felt that the relationship with Kyle and Zoe was a little unbelievable. She had been with him for four years and when she came back to her home town, all of the sudden she realized what a bad person he was? I didn't buy that part of the story. I was interested enough to finish the story but it didn't live up to Denise Hunter's other books.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion.
