Heather Heyford has really created an enjoyable series with The Napa Wine Heiresses. Each book is as unique as the names of these sisters. A Taste of Sauvignon is Book 3 in this series and is about Sauvignon St. Pierre. Savvy is ambitious and always seems to be trying to prove her worth and independence. A lawyer, she has never taken a break and is always looking to climb the next rung on her corporate ladder. That all changes when she crosses paths with Esteban Morales. Although their first meeting does not go well he leaves quite an impression on her. There could be a problem however when she discovers their parents have cultivated a long standing rivalry. A Taste of Sauvignon is a story about finding out who you are and where you belong. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review and found uniquely heartwarming and hilariously entertaining.
A beautiful story about escaping a bad situation and rectifying bad decisions. It is also a story about reunited love. Will escaping one bad situation lead to creating another more explosive one? I received an ARC of The Mistake by Lily Maxton for an honest review. Ms. Maxton created an emotional story. This is a story that shows trying to be a better person and make smarter choices does not prevent making mistakes along the way.
