the Cottage on Juniper ridge by Sheila Roberts (Life in Icicle Falls, #4)
Can a book change your life? Yes, when it's Simplicity, Muriel Sterling's guide to plain living. In fact, it inspires Jen Heath to leave her stressful, overcommitted life in Seattle and move to Icicle Falls, where she rents a lovely little cottage on Juniper Ridge. And where she can enjoy simple pleasures—like joining the local book club—and complicated ones, like falling in love with her sexy landlord, Garrett Armstrong.
Her sister Toni is ready for a change, too. She has a teenage daughter who's constantly texting her friends, a husband who's more involved with his computer than he is with her, and a son who's consumed by video games. Toni wants her family to grow closer—to return to a simpler way of life.
Other women in town, like Stacy Thomas, are also inspired to unload their excess stuff and some of the extra responsibilities they've taken on.
But as they all discover, sometimes life simply happens. It doesn't always happen simply!

My review: The Cottage on Juniper Ridge by Sheila Roberts (Life in Icicle Falls, #4)
This book is about changing your life by making it simpler. Some jump in without much planning to change. Jen Heath hates her life. She is working two jobs to afford her condo but can't enjoy being home in it.
Jen decides to sale her condo and leave big city behind. She is renting a cottage right outside of Icicle Falls. Her land lord is good looking firefighter did help sway her mind. She wants to enjoy friends, make bread & garden and work part time.
Jen sister Toni is afraid she is loosing her family. They are so connected to their phones, computer. Toni thought her sister crazy to want to move without first finding a job. She comes to love Icicle Falls.
Some are afraid they are on the path to being a hoarder and tries to de junk her house. I am trying that right now it is harder to do.
Garrett Armstrong is renting his cottage for the first time. The more he sees of Jen the more he thinks she is like his ex-wife and a flake. He is dating a cop instead. He is a firefighter. He is raising his 5 year old son.
Lots of good friends, lots of struggles, drama and action. You care for the characters and want things to workout for them. I wanted to also go to the chocolate festival in town. It sounded yummy. It is also a clean read.
I was given this ebook to read and in return agreed to give a honest review of it.
