I've read a few books by Barbara O'Neal and loved them.
This book, not so much...and I don't know why.
It has a lot of the elements I generally love in a work of fiction.
I love a book about an organic farm. I almost exclusively read books about women and I generally enjoy books about more mature women. Toss in a dog and it should be a jackpot.
But even as I was reading the synopsis I was hesitating for some reason...anyway, I don't really know why but for me this was just OK.
What I will say is the love scene (I think there was only one) was painful to read, and the recipes at the beginning of each chapter probably would have been edgy 10 years ago but today it just feels tired and over-used. But those are small things and aren't enough to explain why this book left me flat.
