About the book:
When Grandpa Sanderford asks Riley O'hare to give up her climb on the corporate ladder and take over the family cranberry farm in Massachusetts, she actually considers it. Her mind is made up when her brother dies and she becomes the guardian of his son. Riley hopes the move and her new roles will help her find the purpose and peace she desires. With the death of his friend and business partner, Zane Baldwyn's world is turned upside down, and his company is in trouble. As he looks to replace John, strange things begin to happen that makes Zane wonder if John's death was really accidental. Riley has a farm to save, and Zane has a mystery to solve. Somehow the two goals seem related. As Riley and Zane are drawn closer together, can they stay out of danger and discover a season of love?
Seasons of Love was a sweet romance like you would expect from the Heartsong Presents book club. There was some intrigue and a bit of danger here and there, but overall it was more about relationships (in my opinion) than what happened to her brother. The ex-boyfriend was a tad creepy and his motivations were suspect. Zane was a heroic hero, setting aside his own needs for his best friend's sister. Grandpa was a nice guy, though a bit behind the times, and her little nephew was simply adorable. I learned quite a bit about cranberry farming from this story. I sounds like hard work, but a lot of fun, too.
Seasons of Love was published by Heartsong Presents and released in 2008.
