REVIEW - Bittersweet (True North #1) by Sarina Bowen

The Book
Release Date: 14 June 2016
Goodreads Link

The new series is set in Vermont. True North is populated by the tough, outdoorsy mountain men that populate the Green Mountain State. They raise cows and they grow apples. They chop a lot of wood, especially when they need to blow off steam. (Beards are optional but encouraged.)

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the orchard.

The last person Griffin Shipley expects to find stuck in a ditch on his Vermont country road is his ex-hookup. Five years ago they’d shared a couple of steamy nights together. But that was a lifetime ago.

At twenty-seven, Griff is now the accidental patriarch of his family farm. Even his enormous shoulders feel the strain of supporting his mother, three siblings and a dotty grandfather. He doesn’t have time for the sorority girl who’s shown up expecting to buy his harvest at half price.

Vermont was never in Audrey Kidder’s travel plans. Neither was Griff Shipley. But she needs a second chance with the restaurant conglomerate employing her. Okay—a fifth chance. And no self-righteous lumbersexual farmer will stand in her way.

They’re adversaries. They want entirely different things from life. Too bad their sexual chemistry is as hot as Audrey’s top secret enchilada sauce, and then some.

My Opinion  5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Each and every book that i have read from Sarina Bowen always seems to be her next best work.  I find very little if at all that i don't like about them, and this one is no different.

Griff is a farmer looking after his family farm and his immediate family after the early and sudden death of his late father.  He has the weight of the world on his shoulders, and this tends to make him a little grumpy.

Audrey, although raised by her rich mother, lacked the loved and when she failed at her college went her own way.  Cut off from her mothers purse strings and with her car removed she has forged her way in the kitchen gaining skills that make her happy, but her current employment has given her great difficulties.

The story is complex but has no tricks to make you read the plot, you just want to the story is written that well.  There is so much detail given into Griff and his farm you feel that you are almost learning yourself.

I really, really look forward to the next book in the series and hope there are many more books to come!!
