After her mother's tragic death, Dani Wilde had no choice but to abandon her dreams. She left Columbia University and returned to her family's Montana cherry farm, intent on being a maternal figure to her brothers. Now the kids are grown, and it's finally her time to fly. Her sights are on New York City, and nothing will stop her - not even an old flame with gorgeous green eyes.
Celebrity photographer Ben Denton hasn't seen Montana in years - and hasn't spoken to Dani since "that night" so long ago. When he discovers he's a dad to a four-year-old - and the child's mother refuses to care for her - Montana and the Wilde farm spring to mind. The orchard is the only place that's ever felt like home, but will the warmth of the Wilde family be enough to help Ben figure out how to be a father?
As the Wilde family gathers for the yearly cherry harvest and Dani struggles to figure out what she really wants in life, she discovers the shocking truth about her own mother - and learns that following her heart may lead her to her dreams after all.

I really enjoy Kim Law's work and this didn't disappoint. This book deals with the aftermath of growing up in a household with a mentally ill parent. It shows how every aspect of a child's life is shaped by dealing with the damage that can be done to them.
She is a good narrator. There are a few narrators that are terrible and luckily she isn't one of them. I think she does a good job making you think there is more than one person narrating.
As most books, there is a back story to what makes a person become who they are as adults. Unlike most, this one shows the damaging effects that mental illness in a parent can have on a child. While the book is a love story, it gives some insight into overcoming that kind of childhood. I received a free copy of this book for an honest review. However, I bought the audible version as well since I know that I will want all the books in this series and prefer listening to the book.
It started off okay and then got pretty corny at the end. Danny is super weak and needy at the end also, when she was a much tougher character throughout the rest of the book.
When I first started using Kindle, I really only read the old classics and John Grisham novels. I'd never read a romance novel in my life. I'm so thrilled I set up the Kindle app for Samsung and got one of your Sugar Spring novels for free. I read the entire series and went on to every other recommended book. I'm completely addicted. I read 4-5 per week. So, hundreds of romance stories later, I come across your name again and recognize it. Now, I'm going thru all of your books and not a single second hasn't been thoroughly enjoyed! Your books are awesome! Thank you! :-)
I loved this book. I'm not a romance reader, but this book has a plot, AND you learn! I also related well with several of the characters. I can't wait to read about the brothers. Thanks, Kim Law!!!!!
the story needed quicker transitions. adjectives not colorful each each event was dull and predictable. could have watched my neighbor plow his field and bet which row was next.
