    I really enjoyed reading Raspberries and Vinegar. Jo and Zach are fascinating characters who are drawn to each other despite having different life philosophies Jo and her friends, Claire and Sierra, are intent on practicing what they preach by creating a sustainable living farm Their beliefs regarding sustainable living and decreasing their carbon footprint have a Biblical foundation The girls are prepared to make sacrifices, including temporarily living in a rundown caravan with an ongoing I really enjoyed reading Raspberries and Vinegar.

    Raspberries and Vinegar is the perfect title for a book that is as tart in conflicts as it is sweet or perhaps I should say, sizzling, in romance.Jo Shaw is an ecologically aware, pint sized heroine who did not intend to fall in love when she moves with two girlfriends to start their sustainable farm, Green Acres Zach Nemesek is the way too attractive neighbour who has a love of way too many things that go right against Jo s ecological ideals.R V shows the clash of these two likeable characte Raspberries and Vinegar is the perfect title for a book that is as tart in conflicts as it is sweet or perhaps I should say, sizzling, in romance.Jo Shaw is an ecologically aware, pint sized heroine who did not intend to fall in love when she moves with two girlfriends to start their sustainable farm, Green Acres Zach Nemesek is the way too attractive neighbour who has a love of way too many things that go right against Jo s ecological ideals.R V shows the clash of these two likeable characters and the inescapable romance that ensues Valerie Comer has given that spark of attraction between characters that creates a page turner.Jo is a character with many issues At times I would get cross and want to argue with her but then the story would accomplish that for me In the end, I could not help but like her spunk, and be glad that Zach saw that her strengths outweighed her weaknesses Zach experiences his own internal battles that he overcomes and I was satisfied as a reader to have all this tied up in the end.While the book has plenty of supporting characters I never felt overwhelmed by them, rather that each helped create the setting of a small farming community where everyone knows their neighbour.For the romance genre, I would have preferredscenes of Jo and Zach interacting throughout the middle portion of this book however the tension and personal motivations of both kept me turning the pages For me,scenes with the main characters together would have deepened the ending and increased the validity of their final decisions However, the ending was satisfying.There were some well developed sub plots in R V and excellent foreshadowing of events There was even that sharp intake of breath that shows you have truly been caught by surprise The book was well edited with no major flaws to pull me out of an enjoyable story.I m giving this four stars and I will be reading the next in the farm fresh series those well woven sub plots in Raspberries and Vinegar has left my romantic heart imagining where the series will lead to next Recommended

    Josephine Shaw, a young nutritionist, and her two friends have embarked on their dream of setting up a sustainable lifestyle farm in a country town, but it will be a long process The mouse plague in their temporary portable trailer home is just the start Jo is so passionate about treading lightly on the planet that she tends to do just the opposite with people, coming across as overbearing and pushy in her zeal to convince others to live as healthily and thoughtfully as she does Zach Nemesek Josephine Shaw, a young nutritionist, and her two friends have embarked on their dream of setting up a sustainable lifestyle farm in a country town, but it will be a long process The mouse plague in their temporary portable trailer home is just the start Jo is so passionate about treading lightly on the planet that she tends to do just the opposite with people, coming across as overbearing and pushy in her zeal to convince others to live as healthily and thoughtfully as she does Zach Nemesek is the next door neighbours handsome son He s a fully qualified vet anxious to secure himself a city job, yet he s helping his parents out with the running of their farm until his dad is back on his feet from a long illness Zach appreciates the convenience of the occasional take away meal and junk food.I really liked the romance Zach is a lovely fellow and I looked forward to the parts from his point of view It might be easy to wonder whether he could find himself aeasygoing match than Jo, but he d find it hard to discover somebody who would adore him as much as she does She keeps trying to convince herself that she has no future with him, yet I almost wanted to start counting the number of times she sees him passing the time of day with other women, jumps to the wrong conclusion and storms off, devastated Gotta love her.Along with the lightheartedness and humour in this book are some tear jerking moments of touching sadness The ethical considerations the story raises are thought provoking too.I d been looking forward to getting stuck into this book, as I enjoy novels with foody themes They add a good dimension Although this one didn t end up with the huge town feast they were planning, I m hoping it will take place in one of the sequels, which I expect will be about Claire and Sierra and their romances I love Valerie Comer s warm, easy and humorous style of writing, so I ll grab those for sure.Meanwhile, I ll definitely try the raspberry vinegar recipe
