Secrets at Maple Syrup Farm by Rebecca Raisin

SUMMARY 
Secrets...we all have them.

Clay’s inheritance of Maple Syrup Farm came at the perfect time. Leaving city life behind he headed for maple-tree surrounded Ashford, Connecticut. Getting the farm in working order again might be back breaking work – but it seems to be the only way for Clay to finally forget about the girl who once broke his heart…

Lucy’s had enough of rules and the stress of planning her life down to the very last detail. Looking for an adventure she stumbles upon Maple Syrup Farm and its gorgeously gruff owner. This could be the perfect place to hide out…!

But the tranquillity and warmth of Maple Tree Farm is enough to heal even the most battered of hearts. There are very few problems in life that can’t be cheered up by maple syrup!

The new standalone novel from best-selling author of the Gingerbread Café trilogy and The Bookshop on the Corner, Rebecca Raisin. 


MY REVIEW
Magical, breathtaking details, and secrets around each corner...
I couldn't be more in love with Rebecca's new story! 
Clay is this heart throb who just wants to be left alone...
Lucy is taking a year to find herself, a request made by her mother who she has been taking care of.

They need each other more than they know at the time and magic is in the air for these two!

Lucy finds Ashford randomly during her travels and chooses to make it her home during this period in her life.
She meets some of my favorite characters for the Gingerbread series - Ceecee, Lil, Sarah and a handful of others!  Such a magical town to live in and Lucy is really starting to get attached and doesn't know what she will do at the end of her year, will she leave?  Stay?
Lucy and Clay first meet when she goes to the farm in search of a job.  Farm assistant, why not?  She is worked to the bone day in and day out and becomes closer to Clay then she ever dreamed.

As time goes on she decides to take a trip to Paris - will this be the trip of a lifetime for the budding artist? Or will she give it up to stay in Ashford? Only time will tell and you need to read this amazing tale to learn more and fall in love with Maple Syrup Farm
