Wildflower by Mae Wood Blog Tour

When the prize is love, sometimes you get stung. But if you’re lucky, you just might hit the sweet spot…

Juliana Burton needs a medal at Speakeasy's beer festival to push her brand-new brewery into the spotlight. She thinks she knows how to do it, too—with a beer made exclusively from Vermont hops, barley and the best honey in the state. Too bad the only thing standing in her way is a six feet tall, smokin’ sexy, and her secret high school crush.

After a very public disaster in Boston, Riggs Lyon is home with his teenage son in tow.  Riggs is taking over the family beekeeping business with an eye to offload it and start life over somewhere where "Lyin' Lyon" isn't a joke. Selling honey to Juliana doesn't make business sense. She can't afford the high prices Lyon honey fetches in specialty shops and farmer's markets. But somehow, he’s having trouble saying no to anything she asks for, whether it’s in the hive or in the bedroom.

Wildflower is a stand-alone novel set in Sarina Bowen’s World of True North.

Welcome to Speakeasy, where the beer is handcrafted, the patrons wear flannel, and the romance is steamier than the gourmet kitchen out back. The Speakeasy Taproom books are standalone romances set in small-town Vermont. Jump in anywhere!

This is the fifth book in the series and whilst I would definitely recommend that you read them in order, and possibly will enjoy the links with other books that are based in Sarina Bowen's True North World, you could read this as a standalone and go back afterwards.

I love the idea of a group of women choosing to go into business together making beer. Juliana is the brewer, supported by the other partners in sales, etc. She is described so clearly as the person who stays behind the scenes. who has learned the hard way that she is best off concentrating on her beer. So when she sees Riggs, a one-time crush, back working with his parents, beekeeping, she is thrown. She has no idea that he is sore and damaged after his wife committed a fraud on a big scale, and now he has to start again and protect his son too. Not a great start to their meeting, but she puts herself out there and helps him in exchange for his honey that she needs for her award-worthy quality beer.

I very much enjoyed learning more about beekeeping and about brewing. That it was all wrapped around a very lovely, unexpected romance, was a perfect combination. They were fun in their reluctance to consider that what they saw as benefits, was actually much more special.

A really fun read, with a good level of humour, real life, and sexy realisations of love and romance.
