Christie was ever so kind to send it. I decided to review in order although each book is stand alone. Do you love those purple shoes or what? They were so perfect for each other. Their dialog was clever, their scenes so touching. Wonderful secondary story. Penn and Alessandra were much like gasoline and a match. Apart, they are safe, but when together, the sexual tension ramps up to an explosive range. Alessandra takes her oath to her father to heart.
Family is important to Alessandra and her sisters. Penn grew up never knowing his father. Penn never experienced the family life that is so important to Alessandra until he meets his half-brothers. But slowly, his half-brothers worm under his skin. Learning to be a part of family is new and hard, and he grows to love it…as he grows to love Alessandra.
Unfortunately, my puppy loved the book too! Can you see the teeth marks at the corner? Plus there are some teeth marks on the page edges.

Really enjoyed this book The setting in Napa Valley was fun The pairing of a TV Home Repair guy with a woman determined to keep her family s winery in business was sweet Especially since the hero, Penn, is determined to be a hard ass and the heroine, Allie, is her small town s favorite daughter There was also a fabulous secondary friends to lovers romance between Allie s friend Clare who is set to become the first bride married in the winery s new wedding destination venture and her BFF, Allie s cousin Gil Ridgway s writing is multi layered and there were some surprisingly heavy issues dealt with in this romantic comedy Which I loved I m looking forward to Stevie, the next Baci sister s, story in January. Not impressed by the first two chapters of this It opens with the heroine trying on her wedding dress from years ago because reasons most likely because it s dramatic and makes her look desperate The heroine is known as the nun of Napa, which makes her love interest want to nail her And he, of course, constantly thinks dismissively of females Oh, and no one can stop calling him a bastard, even though this is America in the s not Victorian England Noped out.
