Pretty as a Peach (Sex & Sweet Tea, Book #4)
Release Date: March 15, 2018
Mainer Farms is steeped in family history, but it’s also deep in debt from the effects of the ever-changing farming industry. Not about to let his family’s legacy go under, Colt Mancinkus is willing to do anything he can to save the farm.
Darby Culhane is the new farmer in Whynot, North Carolina, and she’s proving to be quite the forbidden temptation for Colt. Darby isn’t looking for anything but a fresh start, and she’s got it all figured out. Get settled in? Check. Apply for the rural county grant? Check. Confrontation with the steaming mad, smoking hot local farmer? Well, that wasn’t on the agenda.
As pretty as she is sweet, Colt can’t help but be drawn to Darby’s…peaches. No really, she’s a peach farmer. Get that mind out of the gutter, and get on down to the farm to see what happens when circumstances force Colt and Darby to team up. They may just find that the peach trees aren’t the only things in bloom.

Everything about this series is sweet as pie! I love the Mancinkus clan. Three of the Mancinkus siblings have gotten their happy endings and in Pretty As a Peach it is Colt’s turn to find love.
Darby’s route to WhyNot is a little twisty. She is in the midst of a divorce from her jerky husband. She moves herself and her daughter to WhyNot to become operations manager of Farrington Farms. The move is two-fold. She can get away from her ex and finish her thesis at the same time. As part of her thesis, she has applied for a grant, the same grant that Colt has applied for in his efforts to save Mainer Farms, his family’s farm. The two start off at odds, but neither can deny the spark of attraction.
I really enjoyed this book. It was sweet and emotional without being over done. Colt and Darby at great. Colt is passionate and down to Earth, sweet and sexy. Darby is kind, loyal, sweet and a dedicated mother. The backdrop of WhyNot and it’s residents is a character in and of itself. It doesn’t take long for the residents of WhyNot to accept Darby into their fold and meddle (not in a bad way). Throw in Linne, Darby’s daughter, who isn’t featured heavily, but does play a part in the plot and you have a great love story.
