Review: Blue Hollow Falls (Blue Hollow Falls #1) by Donna Kauffman

From her free-spirited mother, Sunny Goodwin learned the value of peace, love, and Jerry Garcia. The inheritance from the father she never knew? That’s a little more complicated...

Sunny never expected to find herself owning a centuries old silk mill in the shadow of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains . . . or becoming a half-sister to a ten-year-old named Bailey. Once the shock subsides, she plans to cash in and head back home. But the overgrown greenhouse she finds on the property calls out to the gardener in her, and she senses Bailey’s need for nurturing too...

And someone else is making it hard for Sunny to leave: Sawyer Hartwell, an Iraq War hero who wants to make the old mill a creative hub for the artisans of Blue Hollow Falls . . . and wants Sunny to share his vision, and his life. But sexy as this ex-soldier may be, she’s not sure she’s ready to give love a chance...

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!  The expected release is June 27th, 2017.

I will start by saying I really enjoyed this book however I am having difficulty putting in to words the reason why so this review may be a little short.  If I really have to choose something to say is that you could tell that this was the beginning of a series.  Kauffman took the time to lay the backdrop of the town and its people so that there will be numerous possibilities for the direction of the future installments.  I really liked the fact that she did this as opposed to just focusing on the romance aspect so that the reader becomes invested in what is to come.  my imagination is taking me to so many potential storylines that could lie ahead and makes me want to continue on with the series.

So without further ado, I will say I recommend this story to those who enjoy romance, small town life and complex family dynamics.  This story will appeal to a wide range of people.  I am glad I discovered this series at the beginning so I have something to look forward to in the future.
