The Peach Keeper

Paxton and Willa are connected through their grandmothers--women who began a ladies club 75 years ago. Paxton is planning an anniversary celebration and in part as a tribute to the grandmothers, both now in nursing homes. But there is more to these elderly ladies than the seem. As for Paxton and Willa, they have their own issues. Paxton is in love with a man who may be gay and Willa is trying to be a responsible adult to atone for past mistakes. Willa has a connection with Paxton's brother, Colin.

This book had more subtle magical realism than this author's other books, all of which I loved. As in all of her books, The Peach Keeper has wonderfully crafted characters. Paxton is much more than a spoiled rich girl. Willa is an interesting and complex character. Sebastian has a heart of gold but keeps walls up around himself. Readers will be immediately drawn to these characters.

Add to these characters, a touch of mystery and dash of magic and you have a great tale to read and become immersed in.  I was sent this book to review through the Amazon Vine program.
