I’ve really been looking forward to the Jamison Valley Series by Devney Perry for quite a while now, and although I went in with my hopes set a little too high, The Coppersmith Farmhouse turned out to be a really sweet romance!
One old farmhouse brought them together. It could also tear them apart.
Gigi has just uprooted her whole world to start a new life. The unexpected gift of a farmhouse in small-town Montana is just what she and her daughter need to escape big-city loneliness. The last thing she needs is attitude from the town’s sheriff, the most perfectly attractive and ruggedly handsome man she’s ever laid eyes on—and a complete jerk.
Jess knows all about women like Gigi. Beautiful. Sexy. Scheming. She’s stolen his sanctuary, the farmhouse that should have been his. But along with a face full of freckles, she’s got a sharp wit and a backbone of steel—something he doesn’t discover until after making a complete fool of himself. If he can earn back her trust and win her heart, he might just find the home he’s always needed.
Gosh, I feel kind of bummed with my thoughts on this romance. There were many aspects of this story that I really enjoyed, but somehow, it ended up being just an okay read for me.
There was such a warmth about many of the characters in the story! I loved Gigi’s caring nature, and Rowen was an absolute little doll! I did think that Jess was a little over the top being a ‘Mr. Bossy Pants’. He kind of annoyed me for a lot of the story, but I was glad that Gigi put him in his place. At the end of the day, Jess was a good guy with a great heart, and I loved how he was so sweet with Rowen as well. He really would do anything and everything for his ‘girls’!
I really liked the small town feel of Prescott, Montana, and it seems like the kind of place I would enjoy visiting. I just had a really hard time getting into the story for some reason. There was a great underlying mystery, but there were only very tiny snippets throughout, not really enough to engage me so much. Then, towards the end, it was great, and I couldn’t seem to put the book down. This was a good and very solid story, and maybe if a little more suspense came into play earlier, it would have caught my attention and kept me engaged more.
Overall, I enjoyed this read, so I’m a bit torn on my rating. Perhaps I went into it with my expectations set too high, but regardless, The Coppersmith Farmhouse was a very sweet romance. My curiosity is also piqued about the secondary characters in the story, and I would still like to try out the rest of the books in the Jamison Valley Series!

Sorry it was not as good as expected for you Daisy! Wonderful review though
Thanks Sophie! I am looking forward to reading more of the series…I am really curious about Maisy’s story! =D
Bummer that you didn’t fall in love with this one. I haven’t read one of her books yet, but want to. I’ve heard such good things about them. I guess I’ll start with a different one knowing this one wasn’t a hit for you. Great review, though!
Thank you! Everybody seems to love it though, so you should check it out anyway!
3.5 out of 5 is still a really good rating in my books! A shame that it didn’t quite live up, but it still sounds cute!
Well, it was cute – darn all the hype! Sometimes I hold off reading new releases, so I’m not overly excited and then let down. It just had a lot of potential to be even better!
