Blue Ridge did not disappoint it was a true Hunter book.
Well developed characters, Cruz, Kyle and Zoe are ones you will connect with they are so real.
You are never going to want to leave Copper Creek. But will Zoe want to leave is the question?
The plot is so well thought ...more
It started off so well and I thought I was going to love the book, but the redemption/forgiveness/repentance part of the story I kept hoping to see never really seemed to happen (or at least I didn't pick up on it). This really just felt like a clean-ish mainstream novel and if it wouldn't have been labeled Christian Fiction I probably would hav ...more
Returning to her hometown and confronting her past was never on Zoe Collins' to-do list. But the death of her beloved grandmother has finally brought Zoe home, bringing along her young daughter and boyfriend Kyle. When Zoe discovers that her grandmother has left her a peach farm, Zoe i ...more
I can’t think of a book that I have gone back and forth so much on as I did this book. For awhile I was really loving it. Then I was really annoyed at a turn of events. Then I loved it again. Then I was annoyed again. Then it picked up a little bit again at the end.
I was immediately drawn in to Zoe and Cruz and their second-chance romance storyline. As with most of Hunter’s leading ladies, I found Zoe kind of hard to lik ...more
Zoe is a wild child. The book starts when she's fifteen and she's got the stuff and is hot to trot. She has Cruz lusting after her, but he's her brother's best friend. When Brady goes off to college, Cruz promises to keep his eye on her... and he doe ...more
I have to tell you Blue Ridge Sunrise is listed as Christian Fiction, I didn't know what to expect and I put it off for years but after I've finished it I can say it was a nice read with a very mild religion presence.
Zoe comes back to Copper Creek for her grandma's burial, she ran away years before with a big secret, now that her grandma left her the orchard in her will it's the time to come back at home and try to redeem herself. Cruz has always loved Zoe, she broke his heart going away and no

Well, this one? Not so much. I honestly felt uncomfortable all the way through it. So, so, so many things wrong.
And my fault for not going to reviews written by GR friends to see their thoughts. Totally forgot Hannah reviewed this. And now that I finished it, I looked back a ...more

5 stars: Holy cow. I can't breathe. That was amazing.
4 stars: I liked it. No complaints, but not heart-stopping.
3 stars: Good, but have some issues with it.
2 stars: Pretty bad.
1 star: Awful.
I think Blue Ridge Sunrise falls at about 3.5 with this rating scale. I liked the story and Cruz as a leading man. But Zoe was annoying and hard to root for. I'm also in agreement with many other reviewers that the faith elements in this book were very weak. I hate ...more
The insecurities went core-deep and he wanted nothing more than to assure her of her value.
A good old fashioned love story with misunderstanding as the driving force. Zoe Collins has restless heart. She loves to sing and she is in love with Cruz Huntley. At 19 she runs away from home pregnant and singing with the band all over the country. Her manager and new boyfriend Kyle is now controlling her life. She is called home 5 years later after the death of her grandmother. Her fami ...more
That's why I was so disappointed when her last book, Sweetbriar Cottage, didn't land for me. Of course, I still had hope for the books to come, and, thankfully, my hope wasn't misplaced, as Blue Ridge Sunrise is wonderful!
One of my favorite aspects of Hunter's novels is the chemistry between the main characters. In Blue Ridge Sunrise, Zoe a ...more
