Summary

Can two hearts blend together for a lifelong love?

His mother’s final illness waylaid Sam Price’s college dreams, but he’s content working in his family’s vineyard in the Finger Lakes region of New York. When he finds a woman with a flat tire on a vineyard road, he’s stunned to discover it’s the girl he’d had a crush on in high school. He’d never been confident enough to ask her out back then. He’d been a farm kid. Her daddy was the bank president. Way out of his league. 

Sherry Jones is tired of her parents' ambitious plans for her life. She’ll finish her college accounting degree like they want, but how can she tell them about her real love: working with growing things? Then, a flat tire and a neglected garden offer her an unexpected opportunity, with the added bonus of a tall, gorgeous guy with eyes that set her senses tingling. 

What does a guy with dirt under his nails and calluses on his hands have to offer a woman like Sherry? It will take courage for her to defy her parents and claim her own dreams. 

Sam and Sherry’s lives took different paths, but a winding vineyard road has brought them back together. Are they willing to take a chance to create the perfect blend for a lifelong love?

Going home for a visit before finals is just what she needs. Then she realizes she went to school for something she only slightly likes. Her real passion is gardening. He rescues her from a flat tire, and introduces her to a new world in the vineyard. Fantastic story and narration!

I so enjoyed listening to Lisa Beacom. always a great narrator.

If you want a short, but a great book to listen, this is for you.

I kept listening to see what happened to Sherry and Sam.
Knowing each other from school but not meeting each other for years.
Getting to know each again and there relationship evolve.
Perfect.

Short, Sweet And Loving

Lisa Beacom did a good job narrating this simply sweet romance between two who went to highschool together, but though attracted to each other, kept missing opportunities because of social fears. Sam runs his father's winery. Sherry wants to work with plants and flowers instead of becoming a CPA. Short, sweet and loving story re: how they come together.

Sweet beginning...

I think this could have been longer, should have been. The story had so much more to offer. That being said, I'm SO GLAD there are more books! I'm looking forward to the next one. I listened to the audiobook version and Lisa is one of the best narrators I've had the pleasure of listening to. The nuances of her voice bring the characters to life and make them believable.

enjoyable

A cute short romance with the typical misunderstandings and quick resolution. I found the couple likable and relatable. I enjoyed it. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job bringing it to life.
