Summary

Romance and fine wine both need time to breathe....

Her family’s successful winery business in the Finger Lakes region of New York should have gone to Tessa Price. She’d always dreamed of running the winery, but when the “prodigal son” returns to take up the reins, she boldly strikes out on her own, purchasing Sand Creek Winery - a cash-strapped competitor - right out from under her family. She can forge her own destiny, using her marketing skills and big plans to bring new life to the winery. But first she has a proposition for the sexy previous owner. And he’s likely to hate it. 

Kevin “Max” Maxwell would never have willingly sold his winery to anyone named “Price". Family always comes first, and if paying for his sister’s cancer treatment cost him his business, it was worth it. But when the new owner offers him a one year contract to stay on as general manager, with a possible bonus, he really can’t afford to turn it down. He can ignore the effect her deep brown eyes and heart-shaped face have on his senses for a year, can’t he?  

Relationships, like slowly ripening vineyards, take time. But Max has been keeping a secret from Tessa, one that could destroy her hopes for their future. Will a terrible accident force Tessa and Max to face how much they have to lose, or tear apart their budding relationship forever? Sometimes a romance is like a fine wine. To be its best, it just needs time to breathe.

Breathe

Tessa feels the need to prove herself to her close knit family. In order to do that the ex owner of her new winery Max is going to have to agree to stay on. I love how Tessa always makes Max feel welcome And never shoved out. The story is fun romantic and very family oriented. Fantastic narration.

Lisa Beacom narration was perfect . She brought the characters to live and you felt the emotions.

This is a wonderful gentle romance. Sit back and enjoy the listen.

cute story

i really liked it. clean love story with very nice characters. i feel sometimes the author described the wine "matters" with too many details, though. i feel the drama part was not really needed, and in any case it could have been resolved much quicker. overall i liked it, but i would have liked it better if it was a couple of hours shorter. i received a free copy of this audiobook and I am voluntarily leaving a review.

Wonderful first book of the series

I loved to feel like I was part of the winery and felt good when the story had a wonderful ending for everyone, no harsh details or moments I did not feel good with the story. Great narration, loved it so much. Now I'm on my way to next book!

Great story!

I loved that Tessa is a very strong woman and wanted to make her own mark on the world and own her own winery. Seems like her father wanted to keep his wine business with the men in the family. Her relationship was a bit rocky with Max at the beginning while he figured out if he wanted to stay on with the business she bought from him. I really enjoyed their getting to know each other and falling into their relationship. It was fun meeting the family members and learning more about the wine business. Lisa's narration was very good. Looking forward to listening to lore books in this series.

good

I liked that Tess was a strong and independent woman and didn't settle for second best and the leftovers her dad offered her. It was very selfish to put Tess in a corner and give her job away because he was concerned about himself. Smh. His reasoning made me think less of him and the fact he couldn't man up and explain things to her before he did them made me respect him less too. Tess was a little hard headed when she wouldn't listen to the explanation about the phone message but persistence and love paid off in the end .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.

Could not have loved this more

I'll be honest, from the picture and the title I was expecting a steamy romance book which isn't usually my thing. But I needed a change from all of the books about bleak futures that I was reading. This book blew me away and far far exceeded my expectations. It moves at a very relaxed pace and gives you time to really get to know not only the main characters but some of the lesser ones too. Beyond the romance it was really fun to get a glimpse inside of the wine industry. I also loved the family relationships in the book. To sum up, if you love love then you need to read this book!
