Publisher's Summary

He's been patient; she's been busy. Patience is running out.

Melissa Oxford is a widow with a ranch, an orange grove, a goat-obsessed ten-year-old, and not enough time. She doesn't have time to make friends. She doesn't have time to stop and chat, and she definitely does not have time for a boyfriend.

Which is fine, because Cary Nakamura is far from being a boy. Cary's the man who helped Melissa plant her trees. The friend who keeps offering advice, even when she's is too stubborn to take it. He's also the man who kissed Melissa in broad daylight on a sidewalk in Metlin, California, smack in the face of God and everyone. But while Melissa may spend a little too long dreaming about Cary from a distance, she knows the kind of passion he promises is more than she can handle. She just doesn't have the time.

But sometimes, no matter how busy you are, life makes you stop. It pulls you up short and makes you see things a little more clearly. Things like... The people you can count on. The dreams you keep pushing away. And the passion that can't be denied.

Contains mature themes.

Sweet story of possibilities

We can't let fear or doubt rule our lives. Live, love, fall, get up and start again. A wonderful story of a second chance. Of all three books in this series, this one spoke loudest to me.

Liked it very much!

Lighthearted story. Slow burn, friends to lovers.

Some family drama that gets nicely resolved by the end.

Recommended audiobook.

Enjoyable

I truly dig the read/listen of the last book of the series. It was a great trip of small town romance of all 3. Melissa and Carrie has a history together and took awhile to realize how much they do love each other. Well-developed characters, beautiful plot, and amazing journey of discovering family values and farming can be.

Good Neighbours

The slow cycle of life and the cycle of agriculture emulated in this gentle enjoyable bucolic tale of changes to ranching, diversifying to grow orchards of tangerines, and converting the old bunk house to a Guest Suite. The older MCs have different challenges of drought, developers and dreadful in-laws. Melissa, a widow and Cary, divorced, enjoy a friends to lovers romance.

No gunflights, car chases, kidnappings or heists in this book. Haven't worked out why it was titled: Grit, as no grit was utilized in the writing of this novel. With the name Nakamura, I was wondering his Cary would show his Shibari skills during courtship (he didn't).

Enjoyable and sweet.
