This was a tough one for me. My overall interest in the book waxed and waned but throughout the book I felt like I was reading the novelization of a Hallmark Movie Channel film. The characters were simple and at times frustratingly, emotionally dumb. They bounced from ups to downs. Loving each other then hating each other. Essentially everything intellectual inside of me tells me that I should hate this book. But I didn’t. I liked the setting. I like wine. It was a quick and easy read. I don’t think I can recommend it to anyone, but in spite of myself, I somewhat enjoyed it. Thumbs up.
