I want to start this review by saying, I LOVE a book that can make me want to forget I’m a mom, and have responsibilities to do. Well, this book did that!!! It’s the kind of book that I’m pretty sure I know what’s happening, but I’m just not positive, and I want to keep reading to figure it out. It’s so good that I hate having to go to work, and take my kids to school, because I have to stop reading to do that.

What can you say about a book that you literally devoured within 3 hours? Other than captivating!

This whole book was filled with moments of 'aww that's sweet' and moments of shocked 'no way' there were plenty of emotions and especially as a mother there are parts that I really connected with that made me want to crawl into book.
I've never really taken to reading second chance loves as I always found it really hard to believe, but the mini flash back scenes I think helped connect me more with th

HOLY CRAP!! NO CLIFFY!!! Any fan of Heathers will be shocked to read this. Yes friends, noooo cliffy. She does do a great job setting up book 2 and making you giggle to know that someone will be groveling soooooon enough. Plus the fact that the setup is a man whore and gonna get his does make it all the better. OK enough about the ending. Let’s get to the story shall we.

I have mixed feeling with this book. On one hand, I thought that it was pretty good. The writing flowed and the story had a great pace. On the other, I just had a hard time connecting with the heroine, Morgan and some parts of this book was really hard for me to swallow. It was hard for me to buy in that she was one way in New York and another way in Cherryville. The difference between the two was so stark that it seemed like two different characters. I would think that the two would somewhat bl ...more

Walking Among the Cherry Trees was the first book I had read by this author and I was blown away at how well written it was. I love second chance love stories and add in that this was a second chance with her first love; I was hooked from the blurb.

I fell in love with the characters. Morgan was a great heroine and her story tugged at my heart strings. She was a strong, independant woman; her one weakness was Taylor. She fell in love with him as a teenager; everything with him was perfe

3.5 Stars ★★★★☆

After reading this book I must say it was a good relaxing read. I fell in love with CJ's character (a 10 year old boy wise beyond his years). I must say though I had a hard time connecting a few things. I felt that sometimes the writing style got mixed up between sweet and angsty to just... ugh something else I can't pin point right now.

Morgan is a sweet woman split in two. For one, she has been driven by her father to become th

This author is fairly new to me. I fell in love with her extremely suspenseful and captivating Witness series so I figured I would give her another go in her new contemporary romance series, which just happens to be one of my favorite genres. And this author did an amazing job giving me an intricate storyline that made me blush and kept me on the edge of my seat, flipping pages fast.

H. D'Agostino is one of the author I just one click without reading the blurb. I wasn't sure what to expect. I enjoyed reading this one. The prologue hooked me into the story.

Morgan is a very interesting character. She has had her heart broken and now is a only fun, no strings attached girl. She a very different then most of the book girls I read about. She hasn't step foot in Cherryville in 10 years. She had her heart broken there and hasn't returned. Her grandmother, Virginia, has passed away

Walking Among the Cherry Trees by Heather D'Agostino is the first book in her new series The Cook Brothers and it is absolutely amazing. Second chance at love battling against some big secrets and major heartbreak. The angst will make your heart hurt. Ugh, I LOVED it!!!!

If you are a fan of second chance love stories than you should definitely check this book out. Heather has done a great job with writing this book and I look forward to the next in this series.

Heather and Taylor were in love until one day he pushes her away and makes her believe that he no longer loves her. She has stayed out of Cherryville for 10 years after having her heart shattered and has become a completely different person. She is no longer that girl that she was back than but one day sh

This is one of those sweet second chance romance. Taylor and Morgan were in love back as teenagers but her dad stepped in and ended it. He wanted Morgan to be more like him and not herself. She went along with it but never forgot about Taylor. Her heart was always his. After hearing her grandma died, she goes back to the little town but finds so much more than she bargained for. What she thought was running into her love and befriending a child turned into so much more. I wasn't sure about Morga ...more

Get out your tissues this is a doozy.
Morgan is head of a Advertising company in NYC known being beautiful but having a heart of ice. Relationships are on her terms only and they are mostly for scratching a inch. She wasn't always like this though; once she had dreams, once she felt love, once she was vulnerable.
Enter Taylor, hunky hardware store owner in Cherryville and the reason behind Morgan's heart of ice. Cherryville is where it all began and where it all

This was my first book by this author, and I loved it.

Morgan McGregor left Cherryville after a very traumatic event when she was younger. Now she's taken over her dad's company and is very successful, but she has no time for anyone in her life. She has to go back because her grandmother has passed away and left her everything, so she decides it's a good time for a break. What she doesn't want to happen is to run into the boy who broke her heart. Taylor Cook was her first love, and she never qui

The story has laughs, pain, secrets, suspense, love, betrayal, and heartbreak.

This is Morgan and Taylor’s story. Morgan and Taylor were in love years ago until one day Taylor didn’t love her anymore. She left town. Now 10 years later Morgan is back in town to settle her grandmother’s estate. When she sees Taylor again will it still hurt her? What happens when old feelings are brought to light? Can they try to form a relationship again? When secrets come out will those secrets shatter Morga

Second chances with your first love. When Morgan returns to the place she considered home, she hopes to avoid the man who ripped out her heart and pushed her away. She is not longer the uncertain, young woman of the past but is now a successful businesswoman after being pushed to her limits by her father. She uses this time away to re-evaluate her life and what she wants out of life. Running into Taylor again was inevitable but the secrets he has kept from her are in danger of unrave
Such an awesome second chance love story!

WALKING AMONG THE CHERRY TREES is a story of friendship, young love, tragedy, treachery, secrets, heartbreak and redemption.

When we first meet Morgan she is an ice queen, hardened by heartbreak. Her life for the last ten years has been a blur of one night stands and board meetings. When her beloved Grandmother passes she is forced back in time to confront her past and Taylor, the boy she never stopped loving. What happens when Morgan finds out that ever

Wow. I love this book. It is well written, smooth flowing and easy to read. The imagery is amazing. I could picture every scene as it were right in front of me. The characters, their emotions and the experiences they go through are depicted extremely well.

I loved the two main characters, Morgan and Taylor. As the story progresses we learn about them in both the present, but relive their memories to see who they were when they were younger, and what led them to where they are now.

This story is the first in a new series and it does not disappoint! Morgan is forced to go back to the one place she never wanted to return to and is forced to deal with feelings that were buried deep years before. Taylor thinks he is seeing things when he sees Morgan because there is no way she would come back after 10 years. This couple was torn apart and before we find out the hows and whys we are given a glimpse of how they fell in love. There is something or someone who could destroy them o ...more

Loved it!! Another very very good book by Ms. D'Agostino! A long road to a HEA, but was so sweet when it got there. I cried at points, so keep a tissue handy. No they were not all sad tears, some were happy. I loved the flashbacks to when Morgan and Taylor were younger, when they first met, how they ended up apart with broken hearts, and why Morgan is how she is when we first meet her. They were childhood sweethearts, forced apart by a selfish and ruthless father. There are secrets revealed that ...more

Only it isn’t just Taylor, he also has a son who is such a sweet and important character in this book. There are a few twists and turns in the story and the ending completely melted my heart.

Ink Angels Book Blog received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This book was amazing!!! At first I was skeptical whether or not I would appreciate Morgan, but as I continued to read her story I knew why she acted as she did. D'Agostino has done it again and as usual I am blown away by her incredible storyline.

I thoroughly enjoyed this read and would certainly recommend this for anyone's TBR list or bookshelf at home. Don't miss out on a terrific novel.

Loved this book of second chance love, thoroughly enjoyed it and I loved the way you find out what's happening before the main character and you have the anticipation for the drama that was going to unfold when she finds out, exceptional writing by the author.
I have to say this I'm very much a cover led reader and I would not of picked up this book in a shop which would of been tragic, maybe a new cover would get this book read by people like me xx

If you are looking for a second chance love story this book is for you. It is beautifully written and it captured me from the first chapter. I was left with wanting more. It is not a cliffhanger but the last chapter gives you a sneak peak into the next book (Ty's story) .
