{Review} Once Upon a Wine


About the book

Cammie Breyer needs a big glass of cabernet—her restaurant failed and her chef boyfriend left for a hotter kitchen. Just when she thinks she’s hit rock bottom, her Aunt Ginger calls with a surprise. She’s bought a vineyard—in Delaware. At Ginger’s command, Cammie returns to Black Dog Bay, the seaside town where she spent her childhood summers with her aunt and her cousin, Kat.

The three women reunite, determined to succeed. There’s only one little problem: None of them knows the first thing about wine making. And it turns out, owning a vineyard isn’t all wine and roses. It’s dirt, sweat, and desperation. Every day brings financial pitfalls, unruly tourists, romantic dilemmas, and second thoughts.  But even as they struggle, they cultivate hidden talents and new passions. While the grapes ripen under the summer sun, Cammie discovers that love, like wine, is layered, complex, delicious, and worth waiting for…

My Thoughts

This book was exactly what I needed this week. I loved everything about it – the setting, the relationships between the characters, the humor. It wasn’t just a romance, it was a story about the importance of family and of self discovery. The family bond that Cammie, Kat, and Ginger had was so solid and heartwarming. I adored Ian and the zero angst romance between him and Cammie. I loved the witty banter, and although it’s a predictable story, it was such a delight to read. Plus, it’s about wine, so how could I not love it?!

Bottom Line

A heart-warming story sure to make you smile.

    A heartwarming predictable story is good from time to time. I haven’t read a Beth Kendrick book yet, but one day! As it is from NAL they rarely give me a book at NG so will need to wait or read one of her others.

    This one looks so cute and fun. I’d seen this one on Amazon for pre-order but didn’t really look closely at it. I’m happy it worked for you. 🙂
