I appreciated how the author treated issues of faith, with characters that were well aware of their own imperfections coming face to face with God's perfect love. I think this series is one that resonated with me because it met me where I am at in life. There's a time to read about adventures and romances a world away from your own reality, but sometimes reading about people your age that share your beliefs can be very powerful.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review after reading it. I was very excited for the opportunity to do so as I love the series and looked forward eagerly to this book coming out! I have read all the books in the Farm Fresh series to date, and have loved every one. I think the author does careful research for her books and knows how to make the characters and their surroundings come alive to the reader. Her characters reside on a communal farm called Green Acres and try to live in a self-sustaining manner, growing their own food and raising their own meat, starting out as novices with a dream in the first books of the series. The author is very descriptive of the different aspects of this lifestyle and makes me feel like I am actually there. I also truly like how she always brings God into her books. Not as an abstract concept, but the One who created and watches us, giving us free will to make our own decisions, but who is always there for us when we are ready to come to Him. I have to admit that I was not sure if I was going to like Chelsea very well, she seemed to be rather shallow. While reading the book, she became like a real person to me – warts and all! I wondered about Keanan also, he appeared in a previous book and just seemed mysterious and odd to me. Not sinister or anything like that…just odd. That is all I will say about them, except that as all her characters do, they became very real, human, and I love them! I do not like when a review gives out too much of the story or plot, so I will not say anything else except that this is a great book in a wonderful series, and I would highly recommend it.
The Farm Fresh Series has been a series that I have thoroughly enjoyed, and this book is a wonderful addition to the series. It is always fun catching back up with the people from Green Acres Farm. This book follows Chelsea and Keanan on their rocky road to discovering their love for each other and Chelsea's journey to rediscovering her faith in God. Valerie always draws you into the lives of the characters and the story line from the first pages and this book was no exception. I was given a copy of this book in return for an honest review, and this is another one from this author that I definitely recommend. I am certainly looking forward to the next book in the series.
Plum Upside Down ( A Farm Fresh Romance #5 ) By: Valerie Comer This is the fifth book in a Farm Fresh Romance series. I hate to say that this was my first to read in this series, but I really enjoyed it and it want be my last. Valerie now has me hooked . She did a fantastic job of pinning the story and the characters. I did not have any problems following either one. Plum Upside Down is a good clean farm romance and farm living Christian romance. I loved the two main characters Chelsea and Keanan. Chelsea who comes in dressed high fashion all the time, but she needs God to help show her the way. Keanan , who I loved right away is a Christian, but looks like a hippy. These two seem so different as day and night. They both are at Green Acres which is a communal living and a farm life which faces a local food. Like I said before I really enjoyed this story and caught myself laughing a few times and then some sad times tears were flowing so hard down my face that I had to stop reading and grab a kleenex . Can Keanan an help change Chelsea’s way of thinking about God? I loved the way Valerie use scripture flowing through the story . I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review, which I have given.
