Goodreads: A stolen family recipe has all the ingredients to turn a rivalry into romance…
For Tansy Hill, nothing is sweeter than honey from her farm—except maybe revenge on the man who broke her heart and humiliated her all those years ago. Dane “The Viking” Knudson has been Tansy’s rival since childhood, and though he’s grown into a frustratingly handsome charmer, he’s also standing between her and the best honey award at the Honey Bee Festival, which Honey Hill Farms desperately needs to stay afloat.
Fanning the sparks that have forever flown between them, the competition is on. Sure, Tansy and Dane have plenty in common—more than they’ll admit—but Dane’s plans to expand Viking Honey are also on the line. When buried family secrets come to light, they’ll have to decide whether taking a chance on each other is worth risking the happiness they’ve been longing for.
Ope’s Opinion: If you like books where the main characters have a bit of a history, are currently enemies, and figure out they love each other – this is the book for you! Add in a lot of information about bees and honey. This small town has a lot of gossip and both families have secrets that eventually come out.
This is the book you should take to the pool to read and relax. It is a simple, easy to follow story with a lot of characters ( not too many to keep track of ) that you will enjoy getting to know. Since this is the first in the series, I am sure we will learn more about each of these characters in the coming books.
I liked that when Dane and Tansy admitted to their attraction to each other, it stayed sweet – like their honey!
