About this Book

Former free spirit Zoe Collins swore she’d never again set foot in Copper Creek or speak to the man who broke her heart. But return she must when her beloved Granny dies, leaving the family legacy to Zoe--a peach orchard nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
When Zoe returns home with her daughter and boyfriend Kyle, she finds that she’s the only person in town who doesn’t expect her to give up the life she’s established far away from Copper Creek. Everyone believes she was born to run the orchard, but how can she make it her home after so many years?
Cruz Huntley never quite got over his first love Zoe Collins, the little sister of his best friend Brady. Not when she cheated on him during their “break,” not when she took off to parts unknown with good-for-nothing Kyle Jenkins, and not even now—five years later.
As life-changing decisions and a history with Cruz hang over Zoe’s head, tensions rise between her and Kyle. Even as she comes to terms with the shifting relationships in her life, Zoe still isn’t sure if she can remain in Copper Creek with her new responsibilities . . . and her first love.


I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Ever since reading Sweetbriar Cottage by Denise Hunter, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the first book in her new series Blue Ridge Sunrise. This book is a spinoff from Sweetbriar Cottage and I was excited to see some of the characters again, even in the small roles they played in this story.

Through the pages of this book, Denise takes us from the present to the past as we learn more about the characters. Zoe is a former free spirit. We learn about her past and what it was like growing up with her.

I enjoyed the character development and the ways Denise drew me into the lives of the characters. I felt like I was right there when Zoe snuck in the back of the car and her brother scolded her.

I can’t help but mention the cover. I really like the cover. I had wanted to read this book before ever seeing the cover. Now I’m anxiously waiting the next book in the series, Honeysuckle Dreams.
