Series: Hudson Valley, #1
Author: Alice Clayton
Release Date: October 20, 2015
From New York Times bestselling author Alice Clayton, the first in a brand-new romance series telling the humorously sexy tale of Roxie, a private chef who gets a taste of love—but is it to stay, or to go?
After losing almost all of her clients in one fell swoop following an accident involving whipped cream, private chef to Hollywood’s elite Roxie Callahan gets a call from her flighty mother, saying she’s needed home in upstate New York to run the family diner. Once she’s back in the Hudson Valley, local organic farmer Leo delivers Roxie a lovely bunch of walnuts, and soon sparks—and clothing—begin to fly. Leo believes that everything worth doing is worth doing slowly…and how! But will Roxie stay upstate, or will the lure of West Coast redemption tempt her back to Tinseltown?
Roxie goes back to her home town to take over her mom’s diner since her mom will be on a reality show. She agrees to do this under duress but she soon discovers that her home town isn’t so bad. She becomes friends with the her old high school hottie, Chad, and she even learns to deal with all the town gossip.
Of course, making it all much more exciting is Leo, the local farmer. Let me rephrase: the local SEXY and OH SO HOT farmer. As she and Leo become closer she makes sure that he understands that it’s just a summer fling. Or is it? The longer she stays there the more she questions what’s back in California for her. Their relationship is fun and easy until…there’s a big surprise.
As I said above, I really did enjoy this book and laughed and giggled through a lot of it. I don’t think I’ll every be able to look at bee again without laughing. Nuts got five steaming lattes from me, served with Roxie’s black walnut cake (made with Leo’s nuts of course) 😉
