I am thoroughly enjoying this series and have been waiting impatiently for Tessie and Nate’s story. I was delighted to be invited onto this #BlogTour and to learn more about this gorgeous community.

As ever, I am grateful to Rachels Random Resources and KT Dady for my gifted digital ARC which I received in exchange for an honest review.
Welcome to Pepper Bay. A small close-knit community where you’ll find chocolate box cottages, quaint shops, drama, friendship, and love.
Snuggle down with this cosy, feel-good, comfort read that whisks you away to a beautiful bay on the Isle of Wight – Perfect for fans of Christie Barlow, Phillipa Ashley, and Holly Martin.
The Pepper Bay books are standalone stories that intertwine with recurring characters.
Pepper Pot Farm – Tessie Sparrow and Nate Walker have everything a relationship can have, except intimacy. Neither of them want to add it into the mix, for fear of ruining their friendship.
It’s not easy for them to stay apart when they are growing so close, and Tessie’s secret plan to help save Nate’s farm might destroy them forever.
This series is written in such a way that it’s perfectly possible to read each instalment as a standalone story. I wholeheartedly recommend that you read the full series as each book is wonderfully written and full of romance. As per her previous books, Pepper Pot Farm is presented with alternating viewpoints as we hear from Tessie and Nate as we move from one chapter to the next. It’s almost frustrating, knowing that if they just talked to each other, their lives would be so much happier. However, there would then be no story and missing out on the trials and tribulations of Pepper Pot Farm would be a real loss.
Filled with characters that we have come to love in previous books, the residents of Pepper Bay are a huge part of this story as Tessie and Nate are finally forced to tackle their feelings for each other. Of course, their path isn’t smooth, and they are both coming from a place of deep hurt where learning to trust in a relationship is a huge mountain to climb.
It’s easy to pick my favourite characters as I have been looking forward to reading their story, Tessie and Nate certainly don’t disappoint. As KT Dady adds glorious layers to their pasts, as well as testing twists to their present lives, the story moves to a beautiful conclusion. No, that’s not a spoiler, this is, after all, romantic fiction. Designed to provide a happy ending, the author certainly makes the reader work for it. Trust me, the effort is totally worthwhile.
I’m already looking forward to returning to Pepper Bay as there is so much more to discover.
