After learning that her grandfather had a heart attack, Natalie Mitchell she is forced to return to the family-owned winery, Maoilios in Sonoma. She vowed thirteen years ago when her twin sister died she would never return, but the winery was failing and her father wanted her to close it. Being a major stockholder she had the power to do so. Little did she realize she would also be reunited with Tanner Collins her childhood friend. Tanner is the vintner for Maoilios and fears if Natalie shuts down the winery he will lose his job. In order to save his job, he must help Natalie find a way to turn the winery around and to save the winery they must heal Natalie’s past.
From the first page this book will tug at your heart-strings. Natalie’s captured my heart. Her character was so well developed you could actually feel her despair as her family manipulated her into doing their bidding, her grief as she mourned her sister’s death and the guilt of the secret she had kept all these years. With the help of her grandfather, uncle and Tanner Natalie found healing. This book is filled with love, forgiveness, second chances and even a little romance.
In my opinion this book is a great afternoon read.
