Connor Graham is a city boy - a celebrated fashion photographer in New York. When his uncle's death drags him back to the family blueberry farm, all he wants to do is sell it as quickly as he can. Until he meets his uncle's tenant farmer.
Jed Jones, shy and stammering, devout and dedicated, has always yearned for land of his own and a man to share it with. Kept in the closet by his church, family, and disastrous first love, he longs to be accepted for who he is. But now, with his farm and his future in Connor's careless hands, he stands to lose even the little he has.
Neither man expects the connection between them. Jed sees Connor - appreciates his art and passion like no one else in this godforsaken town ever has. Connor hears Jed - looks past his stutter to listen to the man inside. The time they share is idyllic, but with the farm sale pending, even their sanctuary is a source of tension. As work, family, and their town's old-fashioned attitudes pull them apart, they must find a way to reconcile commitments to their careers and to each other.

Heartwarming Down on the Farm Romance
Poignant, Thoughtful, Relationships
That would be the scene where Connor grieves and Jed is there to hold him. Lots of scenes grabbed me, but that is the one that sealed it for me when it came to their relationship.
Um, everything? Okay, so that's vague.
Well, I thought he nailed the characters, the spirit of the story, the timing and the emotional tone throughout.
I would definitely listen to other audios he narrated.
Almost did, actually! But yes, it was engaging enough that I would have been disappointed to hit pause and go do other stuff.
It wasn't exciting or overly angsty, but it had heart, quiet conflict, and passion. The author carefully handed difficult subjects and didn't turn things into flippant cliches. I was glad to see how she handed things with respect, honesty, and instilled depth and reality to the story as a result.
I received this book from Riptide Publishing in exchange for my honest review thoughts.
