    Always eager to dive into a new Denise Hunter novel, I'm sad to say this one missed the mark for me. Reunion romances are all well and good, and this one had all the usual sizzle and heat fans expect from Hunter, but I felt like Hunter already did this Safe Haven-esque plot -- and did ...

    This book claims to be Christian fiction but it's not. With it's premarital sex and lack of faith elements it's just a contemporary fiction book. I simply could not warm up to or identify with the characters in this book especially delusional Kyle. I wanted to like it because I had bee...

    I am Denise's biggest cheerleader. I own every book she has ever penned. And every one of them or fabulous and always leave me wanting more. The only problem that I have is she does not write fast enough for me. With that said... Blue Ridge did not disappoint it was a true Hunter bo...

    So, I decided to throw my neatly ordered to-read list out the window and read Blue Ridge Sunrise way ahead of schedule. I simply couldn't resist the promise of a Denise Hunter romance or (let's face it) that cover. Returning to her hometown and confronting her past was never on Zoe ...

    I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review. I can?t think of a book that I have gone back and forth so much on as I did this book. For awhile I was really loving it. Then I was really annoyed at a turn of events. Then I loved it again. Then I was a...

    Denise Hunter used to be one of my favorite authors, I've read every single one of her romances she's written over the years. I've heard that Thomas Nelson is becoming more edgy and that is apparent with the last few romances Ms. Hunter has put out. Zoe is a wild child. The book st...

    I really enjoyed this book. I'm from Georgia, so I could picuture the scenes and smell the peaches in the orchard. Loved the characters and the little bit of Nashville thrown in. Thanks to Netgalley and the Publisher for the ARC. ...

    Denise Hunter is one of my must-read authors. Her books routinely make my yearly "best books" lists, and I often stay up far too long while reading her books. That's why I was so disappointed when her last book, Sweetbriar Cottage, didn't land for me. Of course, I still had hope for...

    I really like Denise Hunter books generally, but I didn't really care for this one. Set in a small town in Northern Georgia, Zoe Collins is a former wild child that has become almost timid. Having left her home town, family, and sweetheart and moving to Nashville with the town's bad bo...

    I thought this was a Christian novel, but it is not. It does have God mentioned a couple of times, even few prayers are said when in trouble, but the characters, their lives or the story does not demonstrate a personal relationship with God. Also, there is pre-marital sex with conseque...

    3.5 stars for the first book in Denise Hunter's new Blue Ridge Sunrise series, set in Georgia. If you read her short story, Sweetbriar Cottage, you will already have a glimpse into how this series is going to go. I felt there's been a slight shift from what we usually see from Denise, ...

    Blue Ridge Sunrise by Denise Hunter is a good mixture of romance and mystery. The novel begins with like a typical contemporary romance novel, but then Hunter ends the novel with a mystery element. Filled with intrigue and betrayal, Blue Ridge Sunrise focuses on the romance between Zo...

    Blue Ridge Sunrise is the first book I?ve read by Denise Hunter, but it?s certainly not the last. I love the character development, and the well-defined aspects of their lives. The seamless transitions from present to past, then back to present time, was well done. Kudos to the au...

    Always eager to dive into a new Denise Hunter novel, I'm sad to say this one missed the mark for me. Reunion romances are all well and good, and this one had all the usual sizzle and heat fans expect from Hunter, but I felt like Hunter already did this Safe Haven-esque plot -- and did ...

    This book claims to be Christian fiction but it's not. With it's premarital sex and lack of faith elements it's just a contemporary fiction book. I simply could not warm up to or identify with the characters in this book especially delusional Kyle. I wanted to like it because I had bee...

    I am Denise's biggest cheerleader. I own every book she has ever penned. And every one of them or fabulous and always leave me wanting more. The only problem that I have is she does not write fast enough for me. With that said... Blue Ridge did not disappoint it was a true Hunter bo...

    So, I decided to throw my neatly ordered to-read list out the window and read Blue Ridge Sunrise way ahead of schedule. I simply couldn't resist the promise of a Denise Hunter romance or (let's face it) that cover. Returning to her hometown and confronting her past was never on Zoe ...

    One thing I love about Denise Hunter is she knows how to write books that get into the gritty parts of life that aren't so pretty. Her books bring out the not so pretty and the sometimes hopeless parts but she also shows how those not so pretty things can turn into beautiful things thr...

    Denise Hunter is one of my must-read authors. Her books routinely make my yearly "best books" lists, and I often stay up far too long while reading her books. That's why I was so disappointed when her last book, Sweetbriar Cottage, didn't land for me. Of course, I still had hope for...

    Blue Ridge Sunrise was such a fun book to read. The main characters were either easy to love or easy to hate. This look pleasantly took me by surprise. When reading the cover I was excited to start reading, but if I would?ve only known what I was in store for I would?ve started soo...

    During the story we get a fairly long flashback sequence of Zoe and Cruz's relationship, including the answer to the fairly big question of how Zoe ended up with Kyle instead. I definitely liked Zoe's adult self better than her irresponsible teenage self, though I didn't ever really co...

    Denise Hunter writes stories that I have a hard time setting down. They capture me! That was definitely the case with Blue Ridge Sunrise. The story centered around two people who loved each other, but were seperated years ago because of misunderstandings and lies. I enjoyed reading abo...

    So, I decided to throw my neatly ordered to-read list out the window and read Blue Ridge Sunrise way ahead of schedule. I simply couldn't resist the promise of a Denise Hunter romance or (let's face it) that cover. Returning to her hometown and confronting her past was never on Zoe ...

    I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review. I can?t think of a book that I have gone back and forth so much on as I did this book. For awhile I was really loving it. Then I was really annoyed at a turn of events. Then I loved it again. Then I was a...

    Denise Hunter used to be one of my favorite authors, I've read every single one of her romances she's written over the years. I've heard that Thomas Nelson is becoming more edgy and that is apparent with the last few romances Ms. Hunter has put out. Zoe is a wild child. The book st...

    I really enjoyed this book. I'm from Georgia, so I could picuture the scenes and smell the peaches in the orchard. Loved the characters and the little bit of Nashville thrown in. Thanks to Netgalley and the Publisher for the ARC. ...

    One thing I love about Denise Hunter is she knows how to write books that get into the gritty parts of life that aren't so pretty. Her books bring out the not so pretty and the sometimes hopeless parts but she also shows how those not so pretty things can turn into beautiful things thr...

    Blue Ridge Sunrise is the first book from Denise Hunter's whole new series, Blue Ridge Romance. I read this book in one sitting. I loved it so much, I did not want to put it down. I felt an instant connection to Zoe. I knew what she was going through - the heartache, past secrets and r...

    I'm a huge fan of Denise Hunter, but this one left me disappointed. Lots of non-Christian living taking place in this book by all the characters. God was there, but not really a major player. And the entire plot with the orchard and a barn and a fire... I feel like I've already read so...

    I enjoyed this book and really liked Cruz and Zoe. I am looking forward to Brady and Hope's story next. ...

    Rating 3.5 Stars The insecurities went core-deep and he wanted nothing more than to assure her of her value. A good old fashioned love story with misunderstanding as the driving force. Zoe Collins has restless heart. She loves to sing and she is in love with Cruz Huntley. At 19 ...

    Denise Hunter is one of my must-read authors. Her books routinely make my yearly "best books" lists, and I often stay up far too long while reading her books. That's why I was so disappointed when her last book, Sweetbriar Cottage, didn't land for me. Of course, I still had hope for...

    My rating system looks something like this: 5 stars: Holy cow. I can't breathe. That was amazing. 4 stars: I liked it. No complaints, but not heart-stopping. 3 stars: Good, but have some issues with it. 2 stars: Pretty bad. 1 star: Awful. I think Blue Ridge Sunrise falls at ...

    Oh my! What a beautiful story... I was drawn in from the moment I started and couldn't put it down. There was so much more to this than just a love story. It touched deep places in my heart. Highly recommended. ...

    Denise Hunter is one talented author whose wonderfully descriptive prose immediately assaults the readers' senses as we journey to the foothills of Copper Creek, Georgia?with its fresh air, pine forests, the glorious aroma of hyacinths, and small hometown feel. After five years of be...

    I really enjoyed this book. It has just the right amount of romance and suspense! ...

    I really like Denise Hunter books generally, but I didn't really care for this one. Set in a small town in Northern Georgia, Zoe Collins is a former wild child that has become almost timid. Having left her home town, family, and sweetheart and moving to Nashville with the town's bad bo...

    I thought this was a Christian novel, but it is not. It does have God mentioned a couple of times, even few prayers are said when in trouble, but the characters, their lives or the story does not demonstrate a personal relationship with God. Also, there is pre-marital sex with conseque...

    3.5 stars for the first book in Denise Hunter's new Blue Ridge Sunrise series, set in Georgia. If you read her short story, Sweetbriar Cottage, you will already have a glimpse into how this series is going to go. I felt there's been a slight shift from what we usually see from Denise, ...

    Blue Ridge Sunrise by Denise Hunter is a good mixture of romance and mystery. The novel begins with like a typical contemporary romance novel, but then Hunter ends the novel with a mystery element. Filled with intrigue and betrayal, Blue Ridge Sunrise focuses on the romance between Zo...

    Blue Ridge Sunrise is the first book I?ve read by Denise Hunter, but it?s certainly not the last. I love the character development, and the well-defined aspects of their lives. The seamless transitions from present to past, then back to present time, was well done. Kudos to the au...

    Blue Ridge Sunrise was such a fun book to read. The main characters were either easy to love or easy to hate. This look pleasantly took me by surprise. When reading the cover I was excited to start reading, but if I would?ve only known what I was in store for I would?ve started soo...

    During the story we get a fairly long flashback sequence of Zoe and Cruz's relationship, including the answer to the fairly big question of how Zoe ended up with Kyle instead. I definitely liked Zoe's adult self better than her irresponsible teenage self, though I didn't ever really co...

    I really enjoyed this book. I'm from Georgia, so I could picuture the scenes and smell the peaches in the orchard. Loved the characters and the little bit of Nashville thrown in. Thanks to Netgalley and the Publisher for the ARC. ...

    One thing I love about Denise Hunter is she knows how to write books that get into the gritty parts of life that aren't so pretty. Her books bring out the not so pretty and the sometimes hopeless parts but she also shows how those not so pretty things can turn into beautiful things thr...

    The first in Denise Hunter's new Blue Ridge Romance series had me feeling a little off kilter as a reader. Somehow having what is usually a painful past that a character is looking to put behind them was more immediate than I've typically found in Christian fiction, resulting in a book...

    Blue Ridge Sunrise is the first book from Denise Hunter's whole new series, Blue Ridge Romance. I read this book in one sitting. I loved it so much, I did not want to put it down. I felt an instant connection to Zoe. I knew what she was going through - the heartache, past secrets and r...

    I'm a huge fan of Denise Hunter, but this one left me disappointed. Lots of non-Christian living taking place in this book by all the characters. God was there, but not really a major player. And the entire plot with the orchard and a barn and a fire... I feel like I've already read so...

    I enjoyed this book and really liked Cruz and Zoe. I am looking forward to Brady and Hope's story next. ...

    Rating 3.5 Stars The insecurities went core-deep and he wanted nothing more than to assure her of her value. A good old fashioned love story with misunderstanding as the driving force. Zoe Collins has restless heart. She loves to sing and she is in love with Cruz Huntley. At 19 ...

    Denise Hunter is one of my must-read authors. Her books routinely make my yearly "best books" lists, and I often stay up far too long while reading her books. That's why I was so disappointed when her last book, Sweetbriar Cottage, didn't land for me. Of course, I still had hope for...

    My rating system looks something like this: 5 stars: Holy cow. I can't breathe. That was amazing. 4 stars: I liked it. No complaints, but not heart-stopping. 3 stars: Good, but have some issues with it. 2 stars: Pretty bad. 1 star: Awful. I think Blue Ridge Sunrise falls at ...

    Oh my! What a beautiful story... I was drawn in from the moment I started and couldn't put it down. There was so much more to this than just a love story. It touched deep places in my heart. Highly recommended. ...

    Denise Hunter is one talented author whose wonderfully descriptive prose immediately assaults the readers' senses as we journey to the foothills of Copper Creek, Georgia?with its fresh air, pine forests, the glorious aroma of hyacinths, and small hometown feel. After five years of be...

    I really enjoyed this book. It has just the right amount of romance and suspense! ...

    Always eager to dive into a new Denise Hunter novel, I'm sad to say this one missed the mark for me. Reunion romances are all well and good, and this one had all the usual sizzle and heat fans expect from Hunter, but I felt like Hunter already did this Safe Haven-esque plot -- and did ...

    This book claims to be Christian fiction but it's not. With it's premarital sex and lack of faith elements it's just a contemporary fiction book. I simply could not warm up to or identify with the characters in this book especially delusional Kyle. I wanted to like it because I had bee...

    I am Denise's biggest cheerleader. I own every book she has ever penned. And every one of them or fabulous and always leave me wanting more. The only problem that I have is she does not write fast enough for me. With that said... Blue Ridge did not disappoint it was a true Hunter bo...

    So, I decided to throw my neatly ordered to-read list out the window and read Blue Ridge Sunrise way ahead of schedule. I simply couldn't resist the promise of a Denise Hunter romance or (let's face it) that cover. Returning to her hometown and confronting her past was never on Zoe ...

    I really like Denise Hunter books generally, but I didn't really care for this one. Set in a small town in Northern Georgia, Zoe Collins is a former wild child that has become almost timid. Having left her home town, family, and sweetheart and moving to Nashville with the town's bad bo...

    This book was fantastic it's about Zoe going back home with regrets and secrets and finding out everything she knew about herself was being tested. was there a way for her to find her way back to the person she use to be or was she going to hurt herself even more by not believing in he...

    I thought this was a Christian novel, but it is not. It does have God mentioned a couple of times, even few prayers are said when in trouble, but the characters, their lives or the story does not demonstrate a personal relationship with God. Also, there is pre-marital sex with conseque...

    3.5 stars for the first book in Denise Hunter's new Blue Ridge Sunrise series, set in Georgia. If you read her short story, Sweetbriar Cottage, you will already have a glimpse into how this series is going to go. I felt there's been a slight shift from what we usually see from Denise, ...

    Blue Ridge Sunrise by Denise Hunter is a good mixture of romance and mystery. The novel begins with like a typical contemporary romance novel, but then Hunter ends the novel with a mystery element. Filled with intrigue and betrayal, Blue Ridge Sunrise focuses on the romance between Zo...
