This is book 5.5 in the Farm-to-Fork series by Lynn Cahoon. I’d recently read book 5, so I was in the mood to hang around River Vista a little longer. Luckily, I had the ARC of this book which publishes fairly soon on July 6, but I just couldn’t wait to read it. I loved how sweet giant pup Dom sort of took veteran Randy under his wing, er paw and was so protective of him.
Now I have to be patient and wait until the next regular book comes out, and that’s always some tough waiting lol.
My Goodreads review:
This was such a good novella featuring some of my favorite book friends from the County Seat restaurant run by Angie Turner, and from River Vista to include Ian and his uncle. I love these little quarterly stories that feature Angie and the team doing a team building activity usually for some type of charity. This time, Hope’s turn for choosing had them booked with a home that housed two retired veterans, and the house needed repairs so more could join them. But right off the bat, things didn’t seem right with the residents. I just loved Randy’s character and how well his story turned out. I enjoyed seeing veterans in the story, since I have a special place in my heart for them especially having and having had many in our family.
I was glad it didn’t turn out quite how I was suspecting. New employee Bleak got to help with the showdown. The novellas can easily be standalones, but it does help to read in order to know more about the characters and their lives/relationships. This publishes July 6, but since I just read the fifth book, I couldn’t wait. I needed more time with the characters, since I had the ARC anyway.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
