After losing almost all of her clients in one fell swoop following an accident involving whipped cream, private chef to Hollywood's elite Roxie Callahan gets a call from her flighty mother, saying she's needed home in upstate New York to run the family diner. Once she's back in the Hudson Valley, local organic farmer Leo delivers Roxie a lovely bunch of walnuts, and soon sparks - and clothing - begin to fly. Leo believes that everything worth doing is worth doing slowly...and how! But will Roxie stay upstate, or will the lure of West Coast redemption tempt her back to Tinseltown?

Nuts but Alice clayton at her very best
Heart, soul, comedy and a sassy smart female lead...just what I'd been missing. Roxy and Leo's story full of slapstick meetings, cake making, bees and hot chemistry...the start of a new series 'what joy' 🤗

I really struggled reading the first half of this book. Maybe you need to be into baking and food to appreciate it. It seemed to be dragging on and not particularly going anywhere. If I hadn't spent so much money on it I may have abandoned it. I'm so glad I didn't because the second half had me hooked. I fell in love with the characters (characters that I couldn't relate to during the first half). The book basically follows Roxie who moves back to her hometown to manage her mum's diner for a few months. During her stay she meets super duper sexy farmer Leo and they start up a relationship. Roxie has no intention of staying in her hometown and Leo has no desire to return to the big city, but, they didn't take into account the possibility of falling in love. Some funny moments, interesting characters, great chemistry and beautiful writing.

Fabulous story -- great character interaction
The plot is about a private chef (Roxie - Chef) moving home and meets Leo (Organic Farmer). Girl meets boy. Okay, but what really stands out is the dialog. Clayton created a conversation style in this novel that sucks you in big time. The dialog goes from charming to funny to endearing to.... There are genuine moments where you can't help from smiling. This is not a spoiler. I found the Bee scene very funny.
The narration in this novel is outstanding from both Thibodeaux and York and makes the work come alive with a heartbeat of its own. Listening is so much more enjoyable than reading it I would think.I have listened to the Cocktail series from Clayton and loved it. I recommend that series as well.
This The Hudson Valley Series is off to a great start. Give it a read. You will not be disappointed.

This book had me laughing out loud before I'd made it through the first chapter. Everything was right about it, my only exception is Shayna Thibodeaux's narration, it's 'nasally' in some ways, and her reading sounds like one huge run-on sentence---8 hours of this, becomes a little much. I love the humor and sass of Alice Clayton books, and this one had it in spades! If you're in the mood for a light-hearted romance, that will probably make you want a snack, NUTS is a great option.
