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.

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.

On the opening pages, you find Zoe Collins heading back to her hometown of Cooper Falls, Georgia, with her young daughter, Gracie. The reason for her return is, unfortunately, to attend her grandmother's funeral. Zoe had left town five years ago, both to pursue her music career in Nashville and to hide the fact that she was pregnant!
Zoe soon learns that Cruz Huntley, a friend from her past, is managing the peach orchard, that her grandmother left to Zoe in her will. In light of the fact that Zoe and Cruz would most likely be seeing each other on a daily basis, Zoe knows that she must reveal her secret to Cruz. He is the father of her daughter, Gracie! Once both Zoe and Cruz are able to handle this revelation, they find another problem waiting for them. Due to the current financial state of the orchard, Zoe is planning to host a big sale at the local Peach Fest; however, as she looks out, over her property, one evening before the sale, she sees her barn ablaze. It is being consumed by fire!
As Zoe, Cruz and local officials attempt to discover who is at fault; unfortunately, they discover a man from Zoe's pas,t whom she would rather forget. Hold on, through this fast-paced ending, when you will discover who is attempting to bring Zoe to her knees!
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.
