"Secrets at Maple Syrup Farm" by Rebecca Raisin

What I liked about this novel....

This was another one of this author's great novels that I did enjoy reading.   It was so interesting to know that Lucy's mum who was suffering from a long term illness wanted her daughter...  something special for her daughter.  So, we find Lucy on an adventure for a year...ending up in Ashford, Connecticut where her life would be changed forever.  Why was that?  Lucky was there to live her life to the fullest for one year not  worrying of her sick mum. It was there in Ashford that she meets some wonderful people....even that moody Clay who she persuaded  to give her a job as a 'farmers assistant' on the Maple syrup farm in which he had inherited.  I loved how this author was able to bring the readers back to Ashford, Connecticut which was the home of the famous 'Gingerbread Cafe' that if you are a reader of this author novels you will know all about that cafe... meeting up with many old friends..like CeeCee, and Lil to name a few.

Yes, "Secrets at Maple Syrup Farm'  is of many secrets that will be dealt with in this read, however, .  I was happy to say I was able to guess a few of them early in this well written read.  The storyline will keep you turning the pages till the end because you will not want to miss anything. The heroine in the read really loves her mum and wanted to obey her but for me I found it so hard to do what Lucy had done...and that was obeying her mum wishes.  The hero, Clay...well I was able to catch what may have been his secret from what this author presented this story... still it was a good read in how this author presented it all to the reader.  I don't want to give too much away other than to say pick up "Secrets of Maple Syrup Farm" and see how well this story is brought out.  Questions will be answered...Will Lucy decide on the trip to Paris...for a career as an artist or stay in Ashford?  Will their be something for Lucky in Ashford besides wanting to be that artist?

What else I liked about this novel...

There was definitely a learning process of how maple syrup is made that this author covers so well in the read and I don't want to leave out all of those good baking descriptions that the ladies of the Gingerbread Cafe turned out as well in the foods you can use with maple syrup.  I will say there were a few recipes that were new to me to what you could use maple syrup in!

I will say that it will be interesting to see what more may come of Lucy, Clay and her mum that only this author can do so very well especially in the small town of Ashford....what a great place to live.
