I must say, I was impressed by this book. I thought that a book about a winery wouldn’t be that interesting, but I had a copy sitting in my “to read” pile for months, so I decided to give it a go. I was pleasantly surprised to find this book to be written in a way that reminded me of Elin Hilderbrand. This book is a good read for summer.
The premise of this book is not one that would typically be of interest to me. I don’t drink wine, I’m already married, and my family isn’t on the brink of disaster (that I know of). Maybe that is why it was fun to read about all of these things. The author did a splendid job of creating a story where wine played a big part, but didn’t completely take over. If you are a wine drinker, this book would be good one to read, not only for the love of grapes and wine that some of the characters portray, but because you get a juicy story to go along with it.
Most of this book was taken up with the main character, Georgia, deciding whether or not to go through with a huge decision–one that involves more than her and her family. At times she seemed a bit flaky, but in real life, people are like that all the time. This book is about wine, relationships, love, and second chances. It pairs well with a good glass of red or white wine–if you are into that.
