Synopsis

From bestselling author Luanne Rice—a captivating and sexy novel of love, both enduring and unexpected.

Year after year, Luanne Rice’s fans eagerly await her next book. Their enthusiasm is soon to be rewarded with The Lemon Orchard, Rice’s romantic new love story between two people from seemingly different worlds.

In the five years since Julia last visited her aunt and uncle’s home in Malibu, her life has been turned upside down by her daughter’s death. She expects to find nothing more than peace and solitude as she house-sits with only her dog, Bonnie, for company. But she finds herself drawn to the handsome man who oversees the lemon orchard. Roberto expertly tends the trees, using the money to support his extended Mexican family. What connection could these two people share? The answer comes as Roberto reveals the heartbreaking story of his own loss—a pain Julia knows all too well, but for one striking difference: Roberto’s daughter was lost but never found. And despite the odds he cannot bear to give up hope.

Set in the sea and citrus-scented air of the breathtaking Santa Monica Mountains, The Lemon Orchard is an affirming story about the redemptive power of compassion and the kind of love that seems to find us when we need it most.

I didnt know if I should rate this one a 2 or 3 star, and finally gave it a 3.. It was well written, but totally unrealistic. Roberto and Julia really have absolutely nothing in common except supposedly sexual attraction and the loss of a child. Their relationship could have been one of mutual loss and the story would have been just fine. The attraction never felt real and I could never see any real basis for it. I actually think it would have been a better book if she had SPOILER ALERT helped him find his daughter and walked away feeling renewed and better able to face life on her own.
