At Fairfield Orchard book review

Romance novel heroes tend to be sports stars or billionaires or cowboys. Not so in Emma Cane’s At Fairfield Orchard. Her leading man is a professor. His field is history, and his future tenure rests on proving a theory about Thomas Jefferson. To do so, he seeks out the current owners of land sold to their ancestors by the great TJ himself.

Amy Fairfield and her siblings are in the process of trying to turn the orchard into a profitable endeavor. She’s put her real estate career on hold to come home and reconnect not only with the land but also with friends that she had put aside in favor of a relationship that’s now gone sour.

Professor Jonathan Gebhart suffered a broken relationship too. Unlike Amy, he doesn’t have a loving family to support him.

I have to confess I felt the plot was lacking something. What were supposed to be dramatic secrets fell flat. The few complications got resolved too easily.

That said, I liked the supporting characters, particularly the grandmother. This book is number one in a series, so I’m looking forward to additional stories.
