Home on Apple Blossom Road Book Review

I finally got to the top of the library reserve list on Home on Apple Blossom Road (Life in Icicle Falls) by Sheila Roberts.  I had so many books on reserve that I wasn't sure what was going to be getting when it said that there was a book on my shelf.  I was excited to see this book and excited to start reading it as soon as I finished my last book.  I had a few books ahead of it in the pile but I jumped ahead eager to remember which series this was which was quickly refreshed as soon as I started reading!

Colin Wright and Mia Blair grew up in Icicle Falls, but they left years ago—and not on good terms. Now Colin's grandmother, Justine, has died, and they've come home to honor this woman they both loved. That's when they get some unexpected news. They're about to inherit something. Jointly. They just have no idea what. It turns out that Justine's designed a treasure hunt for them, like the ones they enjoyed when they were kids and best friends. But they're not kids anymore, and they sure aren't best friends. As for that young love they once shared? Well…it's complicated.  On the trail of Justine's treasure, they follow a series of clues that take them down memory lane—ending up at the orchard on Apple Blossom Road. What will they find there? And what did Justine know that they didn't?

Loved this book but thought the description was lacking.  I guess the back of the books are just like movie trailers where they want to give you misleading information just to get you to read the book.  I don't need to be mislead to pick up the book and read it.  This was a wonderful book with chapters started with letters from Grandma Justine to her family members who live far away.  The chapters went through the hard process of the funeral of Grandma Justine and the reading of the will including a treasure hunt to find the most important things in life.  Colin and Mia work together to find out what their joint inheritance from their Grandmother is going to be.  It was a great story of the process and wonderful characters.  I can't wait for more books in this great series!!  I hope that you check out the book and others in this great series and like them as much as I have!
