Roxie Callahan is a private chef to some of Hollywood’s wealthiest, and nastiest, calorie-counting wives. After a dairy disaster implodes her carefully crafted career in one fell ploop, she finds herself back home in upstate New York, bailing out her hippie mother and running the family diner.
When gorgeous local farmer Leo Maxwell delivers her a lovely bunch of organic walnuts, Roxie wonders if a summer back home isn’t such a bad idea after all. Leo is heavily involved in the sustainable slow food movement, and he likes to take his time. In all things. Roxie is determined to head back to the west coast as soon as summer ends, but will the pull of lazy fireflies and her very own Almanzo Wilder be enough to keep her home for good?
Salty. Spicy. Sweet. Nuts. Go on, grab a handful.
Nuts was just what the doctor ordered and reminded me why I fell in love with Alice Clayton in the first place. I absolutely LOVED it!! Roxie was hilarious and relatable and Leo was just down right delicious. I loved the clumsiness, the witty banter, the sexual tension and the honest to god emotion. It truly was just a feel good book with a teeny tiny bit of angst thrown in just to keep it spicy. I knew from the very beginning that I didn’t want this summer fling to end. Oh and I cant wait for the next installment and I am so not ready for the Hudson Valley series to end.
