“Thome’s followup to her well-received Walland takes readers on a gentle ride through a rustic Tennessee setting, perfect for cultivating romance as well as lush fields. Garrett and Willow’s relationship grows in a relatable fashion, with plenty of plot twists along the way. A cast of lovable if meddling friends are well drawn and highly endearing. The second book in the Hesse Creek series treats fans to new developments with old favorites, while also welcoming newcomers.”

Book two in the Hesse Creek series is just as lovely as Walland. A beautiful romance in a gorgeous setting. Thome knows how to paint a picture that makes readers feel like they are in the same room as her characters. Her male protagonists, Garrett and Wyatt are likable, kind characters, unlike the brooding moody men you often see in romance novels. Her female characters, Willow and India are strong and accomplished. From Tennessee’s Blackberry Farm to Aspen, this love story will keep you turning the pages quickly.

Andrea Thome. ANDREA THOME! This book is intoxicating! No amount of filtration can dilute what Andrea has created. Walland is an incredible story of fate, passion, and love reborn. We have the power to choose our family, but sometimes - like with India and Wyatt - family chooses us. Andrea Thome is immaculate in her descriptions of Walland, the people, and the opportunities hidden within chance.

a really wonderful story with a setting that made me fall in love with the beautiful resort in Tennessee. This is book 1 in the Hesse Creek series from Andrea Thome, and I eagerly look forward to reading the second.
