I found this book free on Amazon, otherwise I am not sure I would have tried it out and boy am I glad I did read it. It’s a cute contemporary love story set in Vermont, not at all where I expected it to be set in. When I hear lumberjack I think of Montana, Wyoming, or places with mountains. But that is probably a stereotype in my mind because really, I don’t think of lumberjacks that often.
Ami Jordan has left the big city to visit her sister after her back stabbing boyfriend takes over their company, fires her and dumps her for the bimbo he has been seeing on the side, taking all credit for her work on a landscaping project. She’s now very defensive and not looking to get involved with anyone. No one, especially a lumberjack in nowhere Vermont. When her sister sends her to put a down-payment on a treehouse for her niece, she knows she has been set up.
Marcus Anderson appears to be a grumpy lumberjack, living alone except for his Bulldog, in the hills of Vermont. He is an environmentalist and independent tree house builder. His last girlfriend left him for the big city, so how’s he supposed to let his guard down for the newest city slicker that is catching all of his attention?
But when these two get together the sparks fly and maybe they aren’t that different from each other as they first thought.
Not terribly long, this made a fun afternoon read. The two lovers trade barbs left and right and kept me laughing. I could sympathize with Ami over there not being good coffee in this town. She works at the local grocer to get a better coffee machine as well as carry some wine. Add in a sister who works hard to make the two come together, a cute niece and a great friend in her brother-in-law, Ami never had a chance of leaving the town with her heart.
