Is it more important to have roots, or wings?

Garrett Oliver has just settled into his job as heir apparent to one of the most renowned master gardeners in the country. After a difficult few years, he’s found a home and a renewed purpose at a famed resort in the secluded Smoky Mountains. The stars seem to be aligning for Garrett as he plans a future with his college sweetheart and envisions a simple life with her in the mountains of East Tennessee.

Willow Armstrong, fresh off a painful breakup, is coming home to Knoxville to care for her ailing father. She finds herself in the right place at the right time, landing a dream job alongside Garrett—as his boss. As they are thrown together by their work, an undeniable magnetism grows between them, despite the fact that Garrett is ready to start a future with someone else.

Circumstances persist in drawing them closer, and an unexpected opportunity in Colorado prompts Willow and Garrett to wonder if a life together out west might be beyond anything either of them had dared to imagine.

 
Seeds of Intention by Andrea Thome (Hesse Creek #2)

Seeds of Intention (Hesse Creek #2)Andrea Thome has taken a beautiful backdrop and woven a tale of new beginnings, new bonds and new love amidst the pain of loss, deceit and some unfounded insecurities.

Willow joins the Walland staff after personal events require her to move to Tennessee. Beautiful, intelligent and carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders, she still seems to be a perfect fit for this close-knit group.

Garrett has earned his dream job, working with the soil. The only thing missing is his girlfriend halfway across the country, but there is something that catches his male eye about Willow, although perhaps their first meeting actually gave her more of an eyeful! Maybe that would have been the end of their story if Garrett hadn’t found himself suddenly single and life seemed to put these two on a collision course for romance, if they dare to take a chance.

Meanwhile, the small group of friends who make up the heart of Walland and its beautiful resort have their own excitement to share, not that it stops them from playing matchmaker for Willow and Garrett! Just when things are looking like smooth sailing for this tentative pair, from out of nowhere, Willow is blindsided with news that threatens to sink her newfound peace of mind and happiness…

Sweet romance lovers, this one is for YOU! Andrea Thome’s SEEDS OF INTENTION has just enough spice to create passion, just enough turmoil to add depth and reality and just enough true friendship to go around and leave you smiling! A wonderful quick escape that flows sweet, like melted chocolate, not to mention, the smiles you will get are a bonus!

A Brief Note: I am not a fan of coming into a series after it has begun and when a review was requested, I did contact Andrea Thome to verify that SEEDS OF INTENTION could be read as a standalone romance. Thanks to the brilliant back story recap, I had an idea of what I missed in the first book, but I must say, from that recap, I think to miss book one would be a terrible loss for sweet romance lovers!

I received an ARC edition from Hess Creek Media.
