The Orchard at the Edge of Town

Book 3, An Apple Valley Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Apple Valley, Washington, is where starting over means surprising new chances, facing trouble always brings a helping hand—and the most unlikely hopes can forever come true…
Apricot Sunshine Devereux-Miller needs to stay lost.  Her eccentric aunt's home in Apple Valley is the perfect place to forget her cheating ex-fiance and get her no-longer-perfect life back under control. Plus, it couldn't hurt to fix up the house and turn its neglected orchard into a thriving business.  And if Apricot can keep deputy sheriff Simon Baylor's two lively young daughters out of mischief, maybe she can ignore that he’s downright irresistible—and everything she never dreamed she'd find ...
Simon isn't looking to have his heart broken again.  He already has his hands full raising his girls. And lately he's thinking way too much about Apricot's take-charge energy and unwitting knack for stirring up trouble. He can't see a single way they could ever be right for each other. Unless they can take a crazy chance on trusting their hearts—and risking the courage to finally find their way home.

From Publishers Weekly

01 June 2015 – Fans of McCoy's Apple Valley series, set in idyllic Washington State, will find this third installment (after The Cottage on the Corner) as cozy as a cup of chamomile tea beside the fireplace. Apricot Miller leaves her cheating fianc in Los Angeles and flees, in a hideous wedding dress, to her aunt's neglected Apple Valley home, planning to lay low for a bit before returning to the city and her successful herbal tea business. But the prospect of fixing up her aunt's house and orchard encourages her to stay awhile, even when her hippie family descends to "help" her through the healing process. Even more attractive is the charm of Sheriff Simon Baylor, who was left raising his twin daughters after the death of his wife. Apricot and Simon face few obstacles; the ludicrous behavior of Simon's sister-in-law, Daisy, who wants to marry him herself, is more irritation than threat. Cameos by other series characters, as well as McCoy's familiar scenario of piecing together happy new families from broken ones, make this uncomplicated contemporary feel like coming home.
