Review: A Spiced Apple Winter by Emma Cane

Actor Tyler Fairfield is Spencer Hollow’s only home-grown celebrity. To Brianna MacDougall, he’s a friend who became a lover over the course of one wild night in New York City. They both agreed it was a mistake—so why can’t Bri forget? Maybe because Tyler makes her feel like the only person in a crowded room. Or because his kisses melt her like warm caramel over ice cream. Tyler back in town means temptation 24/7. Bri has more than enough on her plate producing a holiday play and running her family business, but this new secret fling can’t last (right?) so she intends to enjoy every minute of it...

Bri’s like no woman Tyler’s known—including Gabrielle, his former costar. Fairfield Orchard and Tyler himself are part of the plan to rehabilitate Gabrielle’s image, but scorching encounters and tender moments with Bri make Tyler wish he hadn’t signed on. He’d trust Bri with anything; she’s his heart and his home. But proving it to her may bring more drama than either of them bargained for...
I'm a sucker for book themes where the family comes together to say the family either business or land. I can't help myself. I enjoy them.

A Spiced Apple Winter is like that. In the series each of the kids come back home to help out with the orchard. This is the second book in the Fairfield Orchard series. Up this time we have Tyler and Brianna story. 

From the first book, these two called to me. I'm not sure why. I think it's because Brianna is going through something that only others that have to deal with it understand. Because of that, she's working twice as hard as she has in the past.

Now Tyler is dealing with a bunch of his own crap. He doesn't have a job at the moment and even though he promised to help out the family he keeps thinking about going back home and finding a new acting job. But to be honest with you I don't think that's what he really wanted. 

Tyler is a very complexed character. He's flawed but not as badly as he thinks. He has something that many people suffer from and learns to live with. I think him having these issues are what make him such a great hero. Everyone has their junk. 

Just when these two look like they are going to make a connection again Gabby walks back into their lives, well more like Tyler's life since she's friends with him. It adds a little twist to the story that I enjoyed. 

It takes a while but Tyler finally gets a clue on what he wants in life and who. I think you'll really enjoy reading their story and you'll want to read the next book in the series, The Apple Blossom Cafe. I know I have to start it soon. For those who enjoy small-town romance with family drama, you'll really enjoy this series. 

Have any of you read her before? If so what's your favorite book or series of hers?
