Book Review: Juniper Hill by Devney Perry

Juniper Hill was a great way to kick off the new year! I really enjoyed how Devney Perry brought this single-parent, small-town romance to life. The second book in The Edens series was a winner!

Book Review: Juniper Hill by Devney Perry | About That Story
Juniper Hill (The Edens #2) by Devney Perry

From USA Today bestselling author Devney Perry comes a small town, neighbors to lovers romance.

Memphis Ward arrives in Quincy, Montana, on the fifth worst day of her life. She needs a shower. She needs a snack. She needs some sanity. Because moving across the country with her newborn baby is by far the craziest thing she’s ever done.

But maybe it takes a little crazy to build a good life. If putting the past behind her requires a thousand miles and a new town, she’ll do it if it means a better future for her son. Even if it requires setting aside the glamour of her former life. Even if it requires working as a housekeeper at The Eloise Inn and living in an apartment above a garage.

It’s there, on the fifth worst day of her life, that she meets the handsomest man she’s ever laid eyes on. Knox Eden is a beautiful, sinful dream, a chef and her temporary landlord. With his sharp, stubbled jaw and tattooed arms, he’s raw and rugged and everything she’s never had—and never will. Because after the first worst day of her life, Memphis learned a good life requires giving up on her dreams too. And a man like Knox Eden will only ever be a dream.

4.5 out of 5 stars

Juniper Hill was fantastic! I loved Memphis and Knox, learning about them, where they were at in life, and watching them fall in love. This was a sweet and heartfelt story with just the right amount of emotion, drama, and heat mixed in. I enjoyed it all!

Right from the beginning, I felt for Memphis and her struggles. I loved her perseverance to make a better life for her son. I loved Knox. He seemed a bit gruff but had the biggest, most caring heart. They had wonderful chemistry and I loved the pull between them as they fought their feelings. They were fiery, sweet, and passionate together and there were some really genuine emotional moments too. I'm a sucker for a single-parent romance and I loved watching Knox fall in love with Memphis’s son, I was swooning all over the place.

This story had a really great build, not revealing its secrets all at once but pulling me in as things developed, histories were learned, and secrets were revealed. I really like the town of Quincy and the Eden family and the bonds they all have. There were descriptive details and a good flow between the dual POVs. Even though there was some drama and a building angsty element, it never felt heavy. I liked how it helped to create such a thrilling ending.

I love how Devney Perry tells a story. They're familiar and inviting and yet still find ways to surprise me. I also liked the setup for Talia and her love interest in the epilogue, I’m already looking forward to Garnet Flats. Bring on the next story in The Edens series!
