Publisher Description

In 1970, Violet Hawkins' only wish at eighteen is to escape her life in the Dayton, Ohio foster-care system and make her way to the west coast to enjoy a mellow life and find the love she's been missing all her life. She makes it to San Francisco, but soon learns she needs a job if she's to live properly. A kind, young man named Kenton Chandler offers her a sandwich and a job at his father's inn and vineyards. With nothing to lose, Lettie takes him up on his offer and begins a whole new life in the Willamette Valley, Oregon.  She immediately falls in love with the land and is fascinated with the idea of growing grapes in order to make wines. She, Kenton, and Rafe Lopez become friends as she learns about running the small inn on the property.

At the same time she marries Kenton, a stroke kills his father. And then before she can tell Kenton she's pregnant, he dies in an automobile accident. Heartbroken and burdened with the gift of the Chandler Hill Inn and Winery, she's left with the task of making them a success. Struggling to raise a child alone while working to grow the business, Lettie makes a shocking discovery that changes everything.

Too May Deaths

This could have been a much better book if the author hadn’t kept killing off the characters to get them out of the picture. Not interested in the second book because of that...
