Synopsis On Goodreads
Connor Graham is a city boy—a celebrated fashion photographer in New York. When his uncle’s death drags him back to the family blueberry farm, all he wants to do is sell it as quickly as he can. Until he meets his uncle’s tenant farmer.

Jed Jones, shy and stammering, devout and dedicated, has always yearned for land of his own and a man to share it with. Kept in the closet by his church, family, and disastrous first love, he longs to be accepted for who he is. But now, with his farm and his future in Connor’s careless hands, he stands to lose even the little he has.

Neither man expects the connection between them. Jed sees Connor—appreciates his art and passion like no one else in this godforsaken town ever has. Connor hears Jed—looks past his stutter to listen to the man inside. The time they share is idyllic, but with the farm sale pending, even their sanctuary is a source of tension. As work, family, and their town’s old-fashioned attitudes pull them apart, they must find a way to reconcile commitments to their careers and to each other.
RATING: 4/5 stars

*** REVIEW ***

...We found love on the blueberry field...

My 2nd book (High and Tight was the first) by V. North and what a heartfelt story! A story with depth about family bonds, faith, self-discovery and love along with endearing and reletable characters. It was sweet, moving, emotional and inspiring and another thing that stood out for me is the lovely writing style.

Connor Graham, the established photographer, returns to his small, conservative hometown not of free will, but forced by tragedy and gets smitten by the beautiful and deeply in the closet farmer Jed Jones on the blueberry field on the very first day of his arrival. Unlike Jed who is in love with work on the field and very close to his family, Connor has more than enough bad childhood memories that he doesn't regret a bit his decision to leave that place and people who scorned upon and bullied him when he was younger.

Will love be enough for the two blueberry boys to compromise when it comes to their dreams and life goals? Buy the book and find out!

4 stars, because I liked the emotional 1st half of the story slightly better than the 2nd half which was more focused on the romance. Recommended to every mm romance fan!



  1. Being gay in a conservative small town must suck... I watched a couple of guys holding hands in the street the other day, I thought they looked cute but an older man nearly trampled and fell because it seemed to shock him deeply ! And we're in Paris, the biggest town in France :(

    1. How sad! I can't believe that still happens in a town as big as Paris, but if the guy is older I get it in a way because some older people are just raised that way and won't ever change their beliefs about homosexuality. Sad but true.:(

  2. Sold! Not gonna lie, I think I'm looking forward to the second half more than the first. hehehe.

    1. Haha...Either way, the book is really good! :)
