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.

Angela SuzanneAge: 18-24Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Blue Ridge SunriseNovember 4, 2017Angela SuzanneAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3I had mixed feelings about this book. At points I liked it, reading about Cruz and Zoe getting another chance. But at other points, I didn't really like it, as scenes moved from one to the other so quickly. Because a chunk of the book was written when they were in high school or just out of high school, it felt more like a young adult novel to me. Even for the rest of the book, they were in their early to mid-twenties. The faith aspect of the book was very minimal which was alright except that it felt nonchalant and only cropped up when the characters were in trouble mostly. However, I liked that I got to see their past relationship instead of just reading about it from what they reveal in the present.
Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Great StoryOctober 31, 2017Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Blue Ridge Sunrise, by Denise Hunter, is book one in A Blue Ridge Romance series. Zoe left home five years earlier and joined a band with her current boyfriend Kyle. Kyle, Zoe and her young daughter returned home for her grandmother's funeral. They had not planned to stay, but when the will was read, Zoe found out she was the new owner of her grandmother's orchard. After a disagreement, Kyle left and Zoe was alone in Copper Creak with her daughter. She had no vehicle and no money.
When Zoe decided to run the orchard, she found out the orchard is financially hurting and her ex-boyfriend, Cruz, is now the manager. In an effort to turn the orchard's finances around, Zoe and her crew clean up a building and converted it to a shop. Just as it was getting ready to open, the shop burned and Zoe is suspected of burning it for insurance money.
This is a really good story. It is fast paced and had a lot of action and suspense in the story. The story also has a little romance without getting overwhelming. The parts in the story that I really enjoyed were the memories Zoe had of her grandmother. The other things that stands out in the book is when Zoe realizes that her life cannot be planned by any man, or even herself. God is the one that has plans for her. I think anyone who enjoys reading contemporary fiction stories will enjoy this book.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher through BookLook Bloggers. This is my honest review.
