Book Review - The Simplicity of Cider By Amy E Reichert


Fall in love with The Simplicity of Cider, the charming new novel about a prickly but gifted cider-maker whose quiet life is interrupted by the arrival of a handsome man and his young son at her family’s careworn orchard by the author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake and Luck, Love & Lemon Pie.

Focused and unassuming fifth generation cider-maker Sanna Lund has one desire: to live a simple, quiet life on her family’s apple orchard in Door County, Wisconsin. Although her business is struggling, Sanna remains fiercely devoted to the orchard, despite her brother’s attempts to convince their aging father to sell the land.

Single dad Isaac Banks has spent years trying to shield his son Sebastian from his troubled mother. Fleeing heartbreak at home, Isaac packed up their lives and the two headed out on an adventure, driving across the country. Chance—or fate—led them straight to Sanna’s orchard.

Isaac’s helping hands are much appreciated at the apple farm, even more when Sanna’s father is injured in an accident. As Sanna’s formerly simple life becomes increasingly complicated, she finds solace in unexpected places—friendship with young Sebastian and something more deliciously complex with Isaac—until an outside threat infiltrates the farm.

From the warm and funny Amy E. Reichert, The Simplicity of Cider is a charming love story with a touch of magic, perfect for fans of Sarah Addison Allen and Gayle Forman.


I have heard nothing  but  amazing things  about Amy  E Reichert books  so when I got the  chance to read  The  Simplicity of  Cider early I was thrilled and I dived into this  story  as soon as I possible could and it was fantastic .

In this story we mainly follow  Sanna and  Issac. Sanna is  a  cider maker who  really just wants  to live a  simple life and make her cider,  however  there business is  not doing  so well right now and the her father is getting older and  her brother is  pushing her & her father to think  about  selling  the Orchard, however   despite everything she hold her ground and is determined to save the orchard in whatever way she can . Issac on the  other hand   is in Wisconsin for the  summer  with is his son and  gets a job at the orchards . I loved watching the  relationship between Sanna and Issac develop over the course of this  book,  in  a lot of ways I felt  like  they  both  brought out the  best sides in each other , the  book  does not heavily focused on the romance  but the  slow burn romance in this book was  perfect .I love bass ( also know as Sebastian but his name is  shorten down to  bass in this story ) . This  adorable little  kid was just  fantastic  and is apart of  a lot of scenes in this book that made me laugh. There was so much going on in this story , between whats  happening at the orchard , the family relationships  , figuring  out who is  trying to sabotage the orchard, what is going on with the people who are trying to buy the  land  . There was just so much  going on  and the way Amy E Reichert is  able to weave all of this together into one  fantastic story just show how much of  an amazing writer she is .

The Simplicity of  Cider is  delightful funny ,authentic , addicting story with a slow burn romance  that is filled with  the  swoons . I also  just want to  take this moment to say  this book  makes me want to drink cider so much lol . If you all love  all of these things in your  stories you should  definitely  pick up a copy as soon as you can .

5/5 STARS
