I was hooked on this book from the very first line.
“You have to grow about eight hundred grapes to get just one bottle of wine. If that isn’t argument to finish the bottle, I don’t know what is. – Anonymous”
In this book, we meet Georgia, who is at her final wedding dress fitting when she spots her fiance walking down the sidewalk with another woman and a child. She rushes home to the family vineyard to try to sort things out, but quickly things unravel for her at her most favorite spot.
Through a series of flashbacks, we see how Georgia’s parents started the vineyard. They bought 10 acres and worked tirelessly to have a vineyard they were proud of. We also get a glimpse into her childhood, her brothers, and the drama slowly starts to unfold. What isn’t her fiance telling her? Why are her brothers suddenly not interested in taking over the family vineyard? What are her parents hiding?
Georgia learns that her parents must make a major decision, as does she, and that you can’t give up on family before trying to put the pieces back. The characters are relatable, with their own family issues that most people can identify with. No one’s family is perfect!
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a lighthearted read, but I couldn’t put it down. It would be a great summer read.
