My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ian is a photographer who wants to publish a book documenting returning vets difficulties in adjusting to civilian life. He reluctantly agrees to persuade a Michigan family to sell their farmland in exchange for his distant but wealthy father providing funding for the book.
After traveling to the property and meeting beautiful veterinarian Collette, whose family owns Cherry Ridge Farm and has no intention of ever selling their land, Ian realizes he needs a new plan — find another property for his father or find some other financing for his book. And as Ian falls for the lovely and funny Collette, he realizes he could never ask her to sell the family property to his dad and he wants to explain, but can’t bring himself to take that chance and ruin his blossoming romance.
I enjoyed the book and though I felt Ian’s father’s reason for wanting the property was a little lame, it doesn’t detract from the rest of the book. It’s well written and brings up the important subject of what is happening to our military as they try to adjust to civilian life.
