Falling in love wasn’t part of the deal.
You know those deals you make when you’re young and dumb, promising to marry your best friend if you’re both not married by the time you’re forty?
Apparently, Phoebe was serious about that.
She waltzes into my small town after disappearing nearly twenty years ago, asking me to marry her. I’d do it without a second thought… if she hadn’t ripped my heart out.
I never thought I’d take Laurent up on his offer to marry me at forty, but here I am, desperately trying to survive another family event. By some miracle, he agrees… on one condition.
I can’t fall in love with him.
I never would’ve agreed if I knew how hard that would be.
A Toast to Laurent is the first in a new small-town, family saga romance series from Theresa Paolo. Grab a glass of wine and join the Grasso family as they pop the cork on love.
Enjoyed this simple yet, complex storyline. Great characters of long ago friends then one night changes the course of their lives when fear settles in Phoebe’s heart. Loved Laurent and his family as siblings are his backbone and always willing to support and call you on your mistakes. Liked how the elephant in the room was handled with care and emotion when dealing with feelings and loss of the major people in our lives. Looking forward to reading more about this family vineyard and the siblings getting their HEA.
I am voluntarily leaving a review for this book that I received free.
