This is an entertaining return to Destiny with a Romeo and Juliet romance, except that neither main character has confidence that their attraction can lead to a shared future. The rocky road they travel on their way to love makes for a fun, sometimes humorous, journey.

Home in Destiny, Ohio, because her grandma Edna is lonely and claims she needs help with the fall apple harvest, Rachel Farris plans on getting in and getting out quickly. What she doesn’t plan on is immediately having a run in with Officer Mike Romo, especially since the Farris and Romo families are longtime enemies. Though Mike and Rachel are attracted to one another, the fact that Mike wants to buy the Farris Family Apple Orchard doesn’t make for friendly relations. Also, the Romos family’s belief that Edna stole the orchard from their grandfather to start with doesn’t help matters. Love, though, is a powerful thing and there isn’t much that can stop it, as Mike and Rachel are about to discover. (AVON, Jun., 384 pp., $7.99)

Sugar Creek

Submitted by Robin in PA on January 9, 2011 - 3:40pm.

When Rachel Farris returns to her hometown of Destiny, Ohio, she has a mission: Get Mike Romo out of her family's apple orchard and out of their lives. The Farris's and the Romo's have been feuding for generations. Rachel wants to make sure that Mike isn't taking advantage of her grandmother. But Mike, who happens to be the law in Destiny, believes the Farris's stole the orchard from his grandfather and he wants to get it back for his family. However, neither Mike nor Rachel anticipate the electricity that heats things up whenever they're together.

This was a good story, but a bit repetitious in places. No surprises with the plot. My rating: 4 Stars.
