After the Summer Rain by Gerri Hill

⭐⭐⭐⭐☆

A gently built love story with such depth of emotions that you can feel tears and tingles.

Erin Ryder works in her family’s construction company with her siblings – sister, Joyce and brother (name not important). After a relationship gone south, Erin has slowly narrowed down her life to only work to the exclusion of everything and everyone else. A concerned Joyce co-opts her father into an intervention. Together they force Erin to take a break of three months on a ‘ranch’ in New Mexico – a remote place where there is no connectivity amongst other things. The ranch was a safe place started by Stella decades back when it was dangerous to be a lesbian in the outside world. With the world changing, there are now a very few women left living there. Almost all are in their seventies or eighties, save Melanie West, 37. The person closest to Melanie’s age on the ranch is in her fifties, but Melanie is happy there. Seven years back, Melanie’s life had collapsed and she’d arrived at the ranch to heal. Now she’s perfectly content to farm and look after her small group of animals from dusk to dawn. Mel is Erin’s host on the farm. First angry and badly behaved, Erin slowly starts pitching in with Mel to work around the farm.

The relationship between the two MCs builds slowly and beautifully. Their interactions and conversations are so believable. The ghosts haunting both give depth to their personalities and their relationship.

This is a lovely, lovely romance.
