Tillery painted the world surrounding Emerald Springs in vivid color.  She brought everything to life for her reader, allowing them entry into this world.  She developed the hectic pace of business life in LA just as thoroughly as the more laid back, yet still hectic, life of small town farming.  The contrast was shocking.  And did I ever learn a lot about tea while reading this novel.  It was nice to see a contemporary romance that had so much substance behind it.   I was quite pleased at the end when the female lead had her ‘revelation.’  Yes she’d had a bad lot in life but it made her much more palatable when she realised that it was still possible for some things to be her fault.  Of course, the male lead was just as block headed at time, letting his temper get the best of him.  It definitely added an element of understanding to the novel.  I also quite enjoyed the supporting cast.  Tillery really makes sure that we get introduced to the characters we’ll come to know better throughout the rest of the series.  Each has their own unique place in the story, and in the town as a whole.   Overall, this was a very enjoyable read.  Tillery has me hooked on Emerald Springs and I’ll definitely be back for more.   Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

This is the 1st book in a continuity series and I can't wait to read all of them. Monica Tillery does a fantastic job of kicking off this series and peaking my interest. I just have to know what will happen next, This is my 3rd book by Tillery and she just keeps getting better and better. She has a true gift for description. I am not a big tea drinker, I have 2 that are my favorites and rarely waiver, but the way Tillery talks about the teas, I wanted to try them all!!! This is a reunion story of sorts. Adam has left Zoe more than once and she is not sure she can survive if she lets him in again. Adam has always wanted to make a name for himself elsewhere and away from the farm. His dad wants him to take over so that he can retire. Adam doesn't think that there is anyway he could be happy on the farm and not in LA, but a lot has changed since he left the farm. I don't want to throw out any spoilers, but I found this a delightful read and that the characters were likeable and relatable. If you like a sweet reunion romance with a little mystery thrown in, then check out Adam's Ambition and I bet you will want to read more in the series and more from Monica Tillery!

This was a sweet story with vivid details that makes you feel like you're right there in the town of Emerald Springs, Washington. The story of lost love, rekindled love and family will melt your heart. Adam Whitman is the oldest of the Whitman clan. He lives and works in California when his dad calls him back home. He wants to retire and have Adam take over the Emerald Springs Farm, the family tea farm. Adam is reluctant because he loves the work that he does and is up for a new promotion. But, he goes home to help his dad and see what he can do to help in a week. While there, he runs into Zoe Miller, his old love. She had her heart broken and vows to never let him break it again. Can Adam break down the walls Zoe has built? Does she trust him enough to let him back in while worrying he will just leave again. The town of Emerald Springs may never be the same. Then, there is the vindictive neighbor who was once partners with Adam's father at the tea farm. His farm now is not doing so well. What lengths will he go to ruin Emerald Springs Farm?
