Fairfield Orchard #1

Releasing Aug 30th, 2016
Avon Books

Emma Cane welcomes you to Fairfield Orchard, where new love blooms and romance is always in season.

For Amy Fairfield, the family orchard is more than a business. With its blossom-scented air and rows of trees framed by the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, it’s her heritage and her future. But right now, it’s also a headache. Putting a painful breakup behind her, Amy has come home to help revitalize Fairfield Orchard. She doesn’t have time for the handsome-distracting-professor who wants to dig into her family’s history for his research.
Jonathan Gebhart knows he needs the Fairfields’ cooperation to make his new book a success. As for Amy-nothing in his years of academia could have prepared him for their sudden and intense attraction. He doesn’t want to complicate her life further, especially since she seems uneasy about him poking around in the past and he knows he’s not the sort of man built for forever. But some sparks can’t help but grow, and Jonathan and Amy may just learn that unexpected love can be the sweetest of all.

Amy came home to help her family's apple orchard after her parents' sudden retirement.  She's been feeling guilty for letting her ex drive her away from her family for so many years.  Then the sexy professor, Jonathon, shows up on her doorstep asking for help with his tenure research on Thomas Jefferson that lead him to Amy's family orchard.
I love Jonathon's unassuming sexiness it makes him even more of a hottie mctottie than most.  He's intelligent and funny though a bit too serious at times.  Amy is pretty deceptive to everyone with her secrets from her former relationship that lasted too long.  Though she is fun and quirky and it helps offset her holding back from everyone.  The couple is definitely sweet together.  They're both looking to find their way out of bad pasts and find comfort in one another.
I love a story that's based practically in my backyard.  There's a bit about the UVA area and it's fun reading it in a book.  This is the first book in the series and was very enjoyable but a bit slow to take off in the laying the ground work of the series and all the future leads of stories.
If you enjoy a walk through our country's history with a side of sexy you'll enjoy Emma Cane's At Fairfield Orchard.

Emma Cane grew up reading and soon discovered that she liked to write passionate stories of teenagers in space. Her love of “passionate stories” has never gone away, although today she concentrates on the heartwarming characters of Valentine Valley and Fairfield Orchard.

Now that her three children are grown, Emma loves spending time crocheting and singing (although not necessarily at the same time), and hiking and snowshoeing alongside her husband Jim and their rambunctious dog Uma.

Emma also writes USA Today bestselling historical romances under the name Gayle Callen.
