Emmy Bridges has always looked out for others. Now it’s time to put down roots of her own.
Working for a wine-maker in France is the opportunity of a lifetime for Emmy. Even if she doesn’t know a thing about wine – beyond what’s on offer at the local supermarket.
There’s plenty to get to grips with in the rustic town of Petit Frère. Emmy’s new work friends need more than a little winning over. Then there’s her infuriatingly brash tutor, Isaac, and the enigmatic Madame Beaumont, tucked away in her vineyard of secrets.
But Emmy will soon realise that in life – just as in wine-making – the best things happen when you let go and trust your instincts. Particularly when there’s romance in the air…
Another brilliant read once again from Jo Thomas. I was excited to get a copy of this book as I have read Jo’s previous novels (The oyster catcher and the olive branch) and really enjoyed them. The cover looks stunning and so summery. I finished this book in a few days as I just did not want to put it down it was so good.
My heart went out to Emmy at some points in this book but she did make em chuckle a few times. I felt like I was there with her feeling the warmth on my skin and the taste of the delicious grapes. I enjoyed reading about how wine is made before machines came into operation. Such a fascinating read with a little romance added in. I just needed a lovely chilled glass of wine with it. Perfect.
