Restoring Fairhaven is the sixth and final book in the Merriweather series. Woven in the pages of this wonderful opposites attract romance are seeds and snippets of garden greenery. I know you’re going to love this story.
Love hurts, or so the songs say, so who wants it?
Taking on her ailing father’s gardening business on Merriweather Island, Samantha Green only wants to escape her ex and to make her father proud.
But Sam gets more than she bargained for when Greener Gardens accepts the job of restoring the gardens of a reclusive writer, Max Fairhaven, whose historical novels about romance and unrequited love litter bookstore shelves and movie marquees all over the world.
Max much prefers the fictional world to the real, and the gardening girl’s interruptions means he’s driven from his writing cave far too often for his liking.
How’s he supposed to craft stories with her distracting him all the time?
Things change when he learns something of Sam’s family challenges, and his admiration slowly kindles. With his secretary’s goading, he’s forced to confront the past, while facing the fact that he needs to change in order to avoid a lonely future.
Gentle pruning and a whole lot of banter forges a friendship between this not-so-Southern belle landscaper and the half-British author. But is their budding attraction enough to grow into a flourishing happily-ever-after?
Restoring Fairhaven is the final “Merriweather book,” but don’t forget to embark on a tour of the next island in this series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.
The Independence Island Series: beach reads aren’t just for summer anymore.
Since this is a garden party, I should probably tell you about my own gardening forays. I love having a garden, but I prefer that type that are mostly self-maintaining and that provide more than just beauty.
My home has a wonderful row of rhubarb that we pick annually, then let go to seed. During the time it’s lush, it gives us gallon of fantastic produce. I’m also a fan of small garden plots and container gardens. I think they are easier to manage for busy people and those who have small spaces!
You can grow a lot of food or get a lot of visual pleasure from a small amount of space with a few containers and some sunlight. Growing things on your own also gives such a wonderful feeling of accomplishment! My personal indoor or container favorites are tomatoes!
