One old farmhouse brought them together. It could also tear them apart.
Gigi has just uprooted her whole world to start a new life. The unexpected gift of a farmhouse in small-town Montana is just what she and her daughter need to escape big-city loneliness. The last thing she needs is attitude from the town’s sheriff, the most perfectly attractive and ruggedly handsome man she’s ever laid eyes on—and a complete jerk.
Jess knows all about women like Gigi. Beautiful. Sexy. Scheming. She’s stolen his sanctuary, the farmhouse that should have been his. But along with a face full of freckles, she’s got a sharp wit and a backbone of steel—something he doesn’t discover until after making a complete fool of himself. If he can earn back her trust and win her heart, he might just find the home he’s always needed.

Loved Georgia (Gigi) and Jess (Brick)! Gigi and her daughter, Rowen, move to Preston after their elderly friend , Ben, dies and leaves them his farmhouse. Jess is the town sheriff and thinks Gigi conned his friend and mentor, Ben. Sparks fly and Jess is a major alpha. Truly a sweet story and also some suspense. Can't wait for the next book!
A favorite book.
This book is now on my list of favorite books of all time. It holds a coveted spot along with a select few other books.
I read The Coppersmith Farmhouse and thought to myself how can this be the author's first book. It has the feeling and quality of KA and CoHo. This author is a hidden gem and will definitely become an extremely well known as one of the greats!
The writing is stellar, the plot intriguing and captivating! I can't recommend this book enough.
Romantic, but could be better
I liked the premise of the story, and found the characters mostly believable. However there were two things that really bugged me about the plot.
1) Gigi had so much self doubt, but the fact that it all supposedly came from one encounter, even if it was after repeated contact with the one-night stand, seems a little far-fetched. No one with an otherwise healthy self-esteem would swallow what he said to her. To make that believable there should have been more backstory.
2) The fact that the guy given oxycodone and was still in pain, then given morphine that took effect immediately suggested the pills were placebos, and I have no medical background. The fact that Gigi was a nurse and that idea did not register blew holes in the logic of the rest of the story.
But I did like that once Gigi and Jess got together they stayed together and worked through issues.
And I also liked that it gave an HEA epilogue!
