The Coppersmith Farmhouse (Jamison Valley #1) by Devney Perry
Release Date: March 9th, 2017
This was my first book by this author and I can honestly say I had mixed emotions during my reading journey for this book.
The Coppersmith Farmhouse starts with Georgia (Gigi) and her disgusted Roe moving into the farmhouse left to her by Ben who she helped to take care of. Gigi is a single mom, and nurse. She’s smart and genuinely a good hearted character. She was effortless in the way she cared about other people. She’s was natural and I loved her! Her self doubt made me want to yell at her sometimes, but I understood the reasons she felt a certain way. Her daughter Roe was also a cutie to read about and reminded me of any kid at that age.
“I was hot for the town sheriff. I was hot for a man who I absolutely did not like one bit.”
Gigi is amazed to find how much she loves the farmhouse after the move, she has nothing left in the city but heartache. She makes a fresh start with Roe and runs into Jess Clearly & the towns sheriff. They get off to a bad start, but eventually they warm up to each other. Jess was charming but sometimes I wanted to scream at him for his over bearing habits, and treating Gigi like a child. I was sooo happy after about half way when he finally got his act together.
“I’ve got you, baby. I swear you’re safe with me.”
The books romance factor was hot, though the insta Love was high in it, it didn’t irritate me. I loved Jess & Gigi’s relationship. Everything about them just worked and was perfect (even when Jess drove me nuts). The end of the book took some twists too and I loved that it involved so many unsolved cases, it made it have a mystery factor which had my mind racing with ideas! The book was really good, and I can’t wait to read the next books in this series!
One old farmhouse brought them together. It could also tear them apart.
Gigi has just uprooted her whole world to start a new life. The unexpected gift of a farmhouse in small-town Montana is just what she and her daughter need to escape big-city loneliness. The last thing she needs is attitude from the town’s sheriff, the most perfectly attractive and ruggedly handsome man she’s ever laid eyes on—and a complete jerk.
Jess knows all about women like Gigi. Beautiful. Sexy. Scheming. She’s stolen his sanctuary, the farmhouse that should have been his. But along with a face full of freckles, she’s got a sharp wit and a backbone of steel—something he doesn’t discover until after making a complete fool of himself. If he can earn back her trust and win her heart, he might just find the home he’s always needed.
