In less than 20 years, Denise Hunter, who lives in Indiana, has published more than 30 romances, set in locales as diverse as Nantucket, Kansas, and Montana. Two of her books have been made into Hallmark movies; she has appeared on the 700 Club, and she has won many awards in her genre. Blue Ridge Sunrise is set in the fictional North Georgia community of Copper Creek. The plot takes off as the protagonist, Zoe Collins, unexpectedly returns to her home community after a five-year absence with her boy friend, Kyle and her daughter, Gracie. Her grandmother has died and left her the family peach orchard. Complications arise because Cruz Huntley is still in Copper Creek and has feelings beyond the betrayal he felt when Zoe cheated on him. “Hunter's latest is sure to please her fans, as well as readers seeking an immersive romance, well-drawn characters, and a satisfying ending.” - Library Journal
