From the “sharp, sassy, [and] surprisingly emotional”* author of In Dog We Trust comes a novel set in the charming seaside town of Black Dog Bay, Delaware...
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…

Great beach read!
Once Upon a Wine is a pleasing romance novel that is easy to read. It is a book is about choices, second chances, romance, and developing hidden talents. It shows how failure can lead to the fulfillment of a dream (if you want it to). I liked the nice change of pace that this book provided. I give Once Upon a Wine 3.5 out of 5 stars. I have to admit that Kat got on my nerves a little bit, and Cammie talked about her failed restaurant too much (she should never have opened a restaurant in the first place). I liked the addition of the cute French Bulldog, Jacques. He was adorable. Overall, Once Upon a Wine is an easy breezy book that is a good summer read.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest and fair review.
