    14. 5 REASONS TO PICK UP THE SIMPLICITY OF CIDER1 You love books with Magical Realism like those of Sarah Addison Allen, Ellen Herrick, Alice Hoffman and Mo ra Fowley Doyle.2 You don t mind slightly prickly main characters who develop as the story progresses Sanna definitely takes a little getting used to she is very rough around the edges and standoffish at the beginning of the novel but we quickly see her character development and evolution as she gets to know Isaac and Sebastian.3 You are a fan o [...]


    15. All of my reviews can be found on novelgossipI have to start by giving credit to that cover, it s gorgeous and something about it speaks to my soul I also just realized how much I m adoring books from the imprint of Gallery Books, they publish strong, fresh, unique novels and I ve especially loved their women s fiction If you haven t checked them out yet I can highly recommend this book and I haven t read any books by them that I haven t really enjoyed.This was my first Reichert book, but it mos [...]


    16. DNF 20%I adore Magical Realism and I adored Reichert s debut The Coincidence of Coconut Cake but this one just didn t do it for me I ve had a rollercoaster of a reading year and being very much a mood reader it seemed like every time I picked this one up, it never felt like the right time Alas, I m making this my last attempt my fifth attempt, for the record and calling it quits This book possessed a lovely, heartwarming feel to it as you learn about the orchard and see all these special touches [...]


    17. 3.5 starsI wasn t 100% sure about this synopsis, but I really enjoyed Coconut Cake, so I was intrigued I liked Sanna and Isaac They re both good people and each has something they re dealing with She makes him focused and he makes her relaxed The few scenes with them together were sweet with filled with tension Plot wise, it was a bit slow There were a lot of aspects being dealt with and while they were all needed as part of the story, it made everything happen at a snail s pace I wanted of San [...]


    18. I had a really hard time adjusting to the prickliness of the main character of this book, Sanna She wore anger like her favorite outfit She was not approachable, and believe me, no one wanted to That is until Isaac and his son, Bass show up at her family s orchard Thankfully Sanna starts to soften and seems to become human again And lo and behold, she can be and is a nice person I have no idea how Isaac saw this at the beginning when he met her, but he was stricken with her SMH.This was a very e [...]


    19. Adorable, charming, loving, and full of character and pazazz Amy really does a great job with one of the main characters Sanna Lund She is independent, disciplined, and perfectionist She is someone who many readers can relate too on many levels Her relationship with others is often snippy and moody at best She is genuinely kind but some people can easily rub her the wrong way.The family s farm is in jeopardy and Sanna does what she can to keep it working to the detriment of herself and her famil [...]

    22. Caution This book may give you that sweet sensation when you go say, Ah when you re actually drinking beer Even though it s a book about cider, a book about a quiet and lonesome girl who spends her entire life in an orchard making cider, a book about people trying to find happiness in an unlikely place Reichert writes with a smooth touch that easily gets you hooked on her characters, tricks you with something unexpected, and weaves in humor yes, now I know what a naughty teenager boy thinks when [...]

    27. Happiness is always worth remembering, even when it was temporary 3.5 STARSI liked Coincidence of Coconut Cake and found the blurb for this one interesting I always enjoy Reichert s foodie antics and detailed, well written scenery The setting of an apple orchard in WI is unique and I enjoyed it immensely It took most of the story for me to warm up to Sanna, but Bass and Isaac than made up for it The storyline is slow paced, which I didn t mind, but the ending felt rushed and off kilter with the [...]


    28. I would never have read this book if I hadn t won it in a giveaway that publishers Simon Schuster were having The genre is not really my typical choice so I wasn t sure how I d feel about the book But to my surprise and delight, I really liked the story I warmed up to the characters, although it did take me a bit to like the MC Maybe the character Thad could have been a little dimensional, but otherwise I liked the development of the characters I especially liked the romantic tension between Sa [...]
