Review ~ The Orchard At The Edge of Town by Shirlee McCoy


Apple Valley, Washington, is where starting over means surprising new chances, facing trouble always brings a helping hand—and the most unlikely hopes can forever come true…

Apricot Sunshine Devereux-Miller needs to stay lost. Her eccentric aunt’s home in Apple Valley is the perfect place to forget her cheating ex-fiancé and get her no-longer-perfect life back under control. Plus, it couldn’t hurt to fix up the house and turn its neglected orchard into a thriving business. And if Apricot can keep Deputy Sheriff Simon Baylor’s two lively young daughters out of mischief, maybe she can ignore that he’s downright irresistible—and everything she never dreamed she’d find …

Simon isn’t looking to have his heart broken again. He already has his hands full raising his girls. And lately he’s thinking way too much about Apricot’s take-charge energy and unwitting knack for stirring up trouble. He can’t see a single way they could ever be right for each other. Unless they can take a crazy chance on trusting their hearts—and risking the courage to finally find their way home.


Who doesn’t love a good ol’ fashion romance? I can tell you who … this girl right here. The Orchard At The Edge of Town is a great contemporary, new-adult, fiction novel written by Shirley McCoy. It has all the great parts of a romance novel – a jilted bride, a grieving widow cop, two cute little girls and a whole lot of romance. Doesn’t it sound great?

McCoy does a fabulous job of setting the scene in the beautiful town of Apple Valley, Washington, where Apricot Sunshine Devereux-Miller seeks refuge from her failed wedding disaster. However, when the hot Simon Baylor comes to her rescue …. her heart is slowly mended. The dialogue between the characters is great and will have you laughing at no time. I absolutely loved Apricot’s no nonsense attitude and the way she handled Simon …. until she meetings his two beautiful little girls …. and the kittens …

The Orchard At The Edge of Town is a great read for anyone who just wants romance, a bit of laughter and a nice easy read. McCoy writes a beautiful tale, of love, laughter and friendship that will have a smile plastered on your face and your heart glowing with love, with this good read! It would make a nice addition to your To-Be-Read Shelf.
