Publisher's Summary

Barbara O’Neal’s novel of food, friendship, and the freedom to grow your dreams brings together four very different women longing to savor the true taste of happiness. Popular blogger and foodie queen Lavender Wills reigns over Lavender Honey Farms, a serene slice of organic heaven nestled in Oregon wine country. Lavender is determined to keep her legacy from falling into the profit-driven hands of uncaring relatives, and she wants an heir to sustain her life’s work after she’s gone. So she invites her three closest online friends - fellow food bloggers, women of varied ages and backgrounds - out to her farm. She hopes to choose one of them to inherit it - but who? There’s Ginny, the freckle-faced Kansas cake baker whose online writing is about to lead her out of a broken marriage and into a world of sensual delights. And Ruby, young, pregnant, devoted to the organic movement, who’s looking for roots - and the perfect recipe to heal a shattered heart. Finally, Val, smart and sophisticated, a wine enthusiast who needs a fresh start for her teenage daughter after tragedy has rocked their lives. Coming together will change the Foodie Four in ways they could never have imagined, uniting them in love and a common purpose. As they realize that life doesn’t always offer a perfect recipe for happiness, they also discover that the moments worth savoring are flavored with some tears, a few surprises, and generous helpings of joy.

Good story but predictable

That the journey the women take help them heal and grow.

What did you like best about this story?

That some one loves to farm and take care of the land.

Which character – as performed by Joyce Bean – was your favorite?

Jennie because she is doing a lot of things for the first time and doesn't give in to guilty and corrosion from people who try to make her afraid of the unknown.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the farm becomes Rudy's and not one of the nephews who want to sell the land.

Any additional comments?

Good story but a little predicable. I like "How to Bake a Perfect Life. " and "No Place like home," better.They plots are more real and complicated.

Very Enjoyable Light Listen

Any additional comments?

This was exactly what I hoped it would be. I've read several of O'Neal's other novels, and have enjoyed them all. I love the attention to detail. The characters all become so real and relatable. I found myself rooting for all of them.
