Nuts, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Bestselling author of Wallbanger and Rusty Nailed is back with Nuts, the first in a brand new series set in New York's beautiful Hudson Valley.

Roxie Callahan is a private chef to some of Hollywood's wealthiest, and nastiest, calorie-counting wives.

After a dairy disaster implodes her carefully crafted career in one fell ploop, she finds herself back home in upstate New York, bailing out her hippie mother and running the family diner.

When gorgeous local farmer Leo Maxwell delivers her a lovely bunch of organic walnuts, Roxie wonders if a summer back home isn't such a bad idea after all.

Leo is heavily involved in the sustainable slow food movement, and he likes to take his time.

In all things. Roxie is determined to head back to the west coast as soon as summer ends, but will the pull of lazy fireflies and her very own Almanzo Wilder be enough to keep her home for good?

Salty. Spicy. Sweet. Nuts. Go on, grab a handful.

Review by

I love Alice Clayton books. They are laugh-out-loud funny and bawdy and just fun to read.Roxie Callahan left her small town in New York state behind years ago for the bright lights of L.A., but is forced to return to help out her mother. Roxie is a chef and working in her mother's diner is not what she had planned for her career.That is until she meets local farmer Leo Maxwell. Roxie wants to make this a summer fling, but she becomes more involved than she wanted, both with Leo and the town.The first half of the book was a little rough for me (I thought it could use some better editing), but by the second half I was fully on board with Roxie and Leo. They are an engaging couple and it was fun to follow their stories. This is the first in a series set in the Hudson Valley region of New York and I'm looking forward to the next books.
