The Orchard at the Edge of Town by Shirlee McCoy (Apple Valley #3)


Apple Valley, Washington, is where starting over means surprising new chances, facing trouble always brings a helping hand—and the most unlikely hopes can forever come true…

  • Apricot Sunshine Devereux-Miller needs to stay lost. Her eccentric aunt's home in Apple Valley is the perfect place to forget her cheating ex-fiance and get her no-longer-perfect life back under control. Plus, it couldn't hurt to fix up the house and turn its neglected orchard into a thriving business. And if Apricot can keep deputy sheriff Simon Baylor's two lively young daughters out of mischief, maybe she can ignore that he's downright irresistible—and everything she never dreamed she'd find ...

    Simon isn't looking to have his heart broken again. He already has his hands full raising his girls. And lately he's thinking way too much about Apricot's take-charge energy and unwitting knack for stirring up trouble. He can't see a single way they could ever be right for each other. Unless they can take a crazy chance on trusting their hearts—and risking the courage to finally find their way home.

My review:  The Orchard at the Edge of Town by Shirlee McCoy (Apple Valley #3) 


I like this series.  It is full of fun, good characters, drama and romance.  It is also a clean read. 

Apricot Sunshine Devereux-Miller decides to hide out at her Aunt Rose Orchard.  She used to spend some weeks every summer before college.  Apricot was supposed to get married and be on her honeymoon but her groom showed up 2 hours late to wedding.  

She is driving a old truck and pulling a trailer wearing her pink wedding dress when it breaks down only 3 miles from her Aunt's place so she gets her bike out and rides it because she destroyed her phone.

She ends up being held hostage till the cop comes and she has sworn off men.

Simon has moved to Apple Valley after his wife died before his twin girls were one year old.  He is a member of the Police.  He is attracted to Apricot right off.  His daughters are really cute.

The other two policeman in Apple Valley had there own romances in the first two books of the series.

Apricot owns her own business in LA.  She has given the last 5 years to her fiance. She is not ready for another relationship. She fights it.

Someone dropped a box of kittens at the farm, because there is no animal shelter in town and the next town over has one but it is a kill one.

I liked Apricot and her family but I would not want to eat cow tongue either. Just saying the name alone turns me off.

I like to read books by Shirlee McCoy and will look for more of her books to read in the future.

I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Kensington.  In return I agreed to give honest review of The Orchard at the Edge of Town.
