Matt is a divorced, Co-Parenting Hockey player, Hailey is a business owning virtual assistant with a crush on Matt. Cute, funny, quirky, Semi-workplace romance (He’s her client). Needed more puppy time, low angst, cute kids, excellent banter (especially when Blake from book 1 in the series shows up!)

This is a really tender romance, fairly low angst, definitely a slower burn. The area surrounding the orchard feels like another character in Sarina’s Series and makes me want to head to Vermont.
