Review by Veronica

“Nate’s soft lips pressed down lightly upon hers, and she tenderly kissed him back, exploring his gentle touch. There were no fireworks. No brass band. It was as though they had kissed many times before. It felt right and much needed.” 

If you are looking for a sweet cozy comfort read then this is the book for you. 

Tessie Sparrow and Nate Walker have everything a relationship can have, except intimacy. Neither of them want to add it into the mix, for fear of ruining their friendship. It’s not easy for them to stay apart when they are growing so close, and Tessie’s secret plan to help save Nate’s farm might destroy them forever.

Pepper Pot Farm is the third book in the Pepper Pot series and can be read as a stand-alone. This book is perfect for readers who are fans of the English small-town romances with a lot of charm. K.T. did an excellent job at creating a story that will capture her reader’s attention and make them believe that happy ever afters do come true. There are plenty of twists and turns that make this book hard to put down. I loved that small-town feel that this book had. I don’t think I will ever get sick of that sense of community that often exists in those cozy little towns.

The two main characters in this book are Nate and Tessie. Since they were kids, these two have been friends. They have always made sure never to cross that line between friends and lovers. Nate and Tessie have created this “made” family where Tessie and her daughter pretty much live at Nate’s farm with his daughter. Their daughters and everyone else in town are just waiting for these two to wake up and admit that they love each other and take that next step in their relationship. This story centers around Nate and Tessie dealing with past hurts, learning to forgive one another, and working up the courage to admit how they truly feel. For me, their relationship was cute, and I loved those moments when it was just the two of them. Their friendship was a little weird for me. They were super close, and I just found it a little unbelievable that they didn’t realize what the other person felt. But overall, I loved their love story.

I loved the secondary characters. They added so much fun and richness to the story. I just adore Anna and Jack as a couple, and I want to read their book to see how their love story unfolded.

Pepper Pot Farm is a fun, quick read with lots of lovey-dovey moments.
