BOOK REVIEW – WILD MINT TEA by VALERIE COMER
Traveling dude meets I’m-not-going-anywhere chick It’s a recipe for disaster.
Chef Claire Halford needs the job Noel Kenzie has to offer. As chef to his tree planting crew. It’s a temporary gig, but no one said flirting had to mean anything permanent. And Noel was a love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy.
Claire wasn’t looking for love, either. She was content to be part of the dream she and her friends, Jo and Sierra, had created: a self-sustaining farm.
When Claire doesn’t get the job, she focuses instead on creating the image she, Jo and Sierra, want for their farm. Adding the element of an event destination brought on new challenges. And when their first bride turns out to be Noel Kenzie’s sister, Claire and Noel are forced to interact, forcing both of them to examine their own absolutes: he’s not interested in settling down, and she has no interest in travelling. How can they overcome the hurdles and answer the feelings they have for one another? Or do they dismiss the feelings and part ways?
Ms. Comer has written a delightful series with very real characters and situations that echo life all too well. Her style is witty and enchanting, enticing me back for more. I did not read these stories in order, but was not lost without that established sequence; each story stands well on its own, and yet, weaves beautifully with each of the others. Each subsequent book adds layers to the story Ms. Comer has established, and I look forward to reading many more from this author.
I was given a copy of this book in return for my honest review.
