The first three novels in a popular Christian contemporary romance series!
This omnibus edition includes the first three books of the beloved Farm Fresh Romance series and is over 25 hours of tears, laughter, and happily ever afters!
Three idealistic Christian women. One farm on the road to sustainability. No romantic prospects. Or are there?
Raspberries and Vinegar (book 1)
Sweet like raspberries. Tart like vinegar.
Josephine Shaw: complex yet single minded. A tiny woman with big ideas and, some would say, a mouth to match. But what does she really know about sustainable living as it relates to the real world? After all, she and her two friends are new to farming.
Zachary Nemesek is back only until his dad recovers enough to work his own land again. When Zach discovers three helpless females have taken up residence at the old farm next door, he expects trouble. But a mouse invasion proves Jo has everything under control. Is there anything she can't handle? And surely there's something sweet beneath all that tart.
Wild Mint Tea (book 2)
She's rooted deep. He flies free.
Local-foods chef Claire Halford envisions turning Green Acres Farm into an event destination. Weddings prove trickier than she imagined when the first one comes with a ruggedly handsome brother of the bride who has everything but a fixed address. Oh, and faith in God.
Noel Kenzie loves the freedom his reforestation company affords him. Why worry about deep stuff like God and commitment when he's in his prime? Except there's a woman who might make it worth giving up his wings...and digging in some roots. If he dares.
Sweetened with Honey (book 3)
His unspeakable past. Her insurmountable future.
Gabriel Rubachuk returns to Galena Landing, Idaho, once the setting of a charmed life before an accident killed his pregnant wife. Will he embrace hope for a new life?

Wow. Great performance in all three books, bringing them so much alive. It's already sweet to read these awesome stories and super funny (internal) dialogues for yourself, but so much more fun listening to them. I'm just amazed by the reading performance. The entire series would make for great Christian movies.
This series is about 3 friends that buy some land in Idaho and plan to "go green and organic", or at least as close as possible. From this point on, their lives are changed forever. For those of you that are drawn in by book covers, do not let the light-hearted, whimsical covers deter you from these books. They are not filled with "nothing but fluff". Valerie Comer has given us humor, romance, drama and lots of life-changing situations. You will laugh and cry. You may see your own situation. I highly recommend these three books and can't wait to get started on the rest of the series. The narrator does an excellent job, too. She has an easy voice to listen to. (Note: I received these books from the author for my HONEST opinion.)
I read the first three Farm Fresh Romances on Kindle, so when the author offered a free copy of the audiobook for the set, I said, "Yes, please!" I really enjoyed having the characters I love come to life. Hearing a story on audiobook always makes the characters more real for me.
I don't think I have listened to Becky Doughty's performances before, but she did a great job on this story. I really enjoyed her narration.
In the Farm Fresh Romances, Valerie Comer tackles so many important issues like grief, infertility, insecurity, relationship issues, etc. She mixes all of that into intriguing storylines with lovable characters and brings it all together with the God who gives reason to our daily struggles, both big and small.
These realy are farm fresh romances and I love every single one!! I laughed and cried with the characters!
for me as I used to live in Creston BC and it feels like this story could have easily happened there! Well done and am lookig forward to more!!:)
I love this series, and the first three books are especially dear to me because they focus on the original three girls as they start their adventure in living sustainably on a farm.
I loved the moments in each of these books, where the main characters, hero and heroine, both had to learn how to let go in some way. As a reader, I found myself learning along side these characters as they learned to trust and have faith, hope, and love.
I haven't listened to any of her other performances. I have to be honest, it took some getting used to. She speaks extremely clearly and enunciates very well. At first, that was a little hard to listen to, because it doesn't sound like a person would really speak in conversation as the characters are speaking. But once I got used to it, it was great. She gave a subtly different voice to each character and was able to stick to it very well.
If I were capable of it, I would. These are fantastic books.
I am almost finished with the second book and doubt I'll listen to the third. The women in these books are so closed minded to their way of thinking. They think anyone who doesn't live absolutely sustainably is the devil. Clair called Noel a jerk, and for the life of me I couldn't figure out what he did that was so terrible. I think I remember Jo calling Zach a jerk at one point as well. The women fling accusations around and are rude to the men they end up with. If anyone was a "jerk" it was the women, not the men. The men both seemed great and put up with a lot from the ladies. Zach did go off at one point on Jo, calling her stupid and placing all of the blame on her for his dog almost dying. It just seems like the author had to develop the story by making big problems between characters. Yeah, it's clean, and when they aren't arguing or overly worried about how the earth is going to die from driving to the store, or buying groceries at the supermarket, it was pretty good. That is why I am giving it two stars instead of one.
