Review of ‘Cracking love’ by Emily King.

Pharmacist Janet Webber relocates to California for a new job. With the stress and travelling demands of her position, she has little hope of finding a partner. But when she meets walnut farmer Gail Lawrence things start to improve. Gail shows her the farming produce and Janet discovers the potential to start her own business. As their relationship develops, Gail is reluctant to trust Janet as she had her heart broken before. Will they have a happily ever after?

This is a well written debut book. The author herself is a pharmacist and has worked in farming in California so it seems that she drew a bit on her own experience to build these characters. I think that the mains needed a bit more polishing to make them completely well rounded but it’s a good effort anyway.

Having said that, in my opinion the author described with excessive detail certain activities like line dancing and cooking, while other more relevant parts of the plot didn’t get that much detail. However, the characters’ chemistry is good and the intimate scenes were well written and realistic.

Overall, a good debut novel for fans of line dancing and/or cooking. 3.5 stars.

ARC provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
