The Hudson Valley Series, #1

Nuts is the first book in Alice Clayton’s new series. It is hilarious, and charming, not to mention, steamy.

All of her life, all Roxie wanted to do was cook, get out of her small hometown, and away from her hippie, hopeless romantic mother. But when life in LA doesn't live up to her expectations, and her mom needs her to come home to run the family diner, Roxie has no choice but to go back for the summer. She wants to make this trip as short as possible. But what if everything she was running from was all she ever needed?

While helping out at the diner she meets a local farmer named Leo, but he's unlike any farmer she's ever met before. He doesn't look like any farmer she's met before either. All she wants is a summer fling but could it be more?

Alice Clayton has a knack for puns; her writing is upbeat and hilarious! I admit I laughed out loud a few times. While there were a lot of steamy moments in Nuts, there was character development and an energy about the town she created. It's somewhere I'd want to live.

Nuts is for any fan of Alice Clayton who is looking for their next fix, or any fan of romance in general!

Book Blurb for Nuts

The New York Times bestselling author of Wallbanger and Rusty Nailed is back with Nuts, the first in a brand new series set in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley.

Roxie Callahan is a private chef to some of Hollywood’s wealthiest, and nastiest, calorie-counting wives. After a dairy disaster implodes her carefully crafted career in one fell ploop, she finds herself back home in upstate New York, bailing out her hippie mother and running the family diner.

When gorgeous local farmer Leo Maxwell delivers her a lovely bunch of organic walnuts, Roxie wonders if a summer back home isn’t such a bad idea after all. Leo is heavily involved in the sustainable slow food movement, and he likes to take his time. In all things. Roxie is determined to head back to the west coast as soon as summer ends, but will the pull of lazy fireflies and her very own Almanzo Wilder be enough to keep her home for good?

Salty. Spicy. Sweet. Nuts. Go on, grab a handful.
